The IP Address Wildcard function was broken at 6.0. You will be ok
when you get the maintenance on. You can also look into the
alternate community names file if you have 6 or less in addition to the
default. That is /usr/OV/conf/communityNames.conf.

Cordially,

My environment is NV 6.0 (awaiting 6.0.2 update) running on AIX 4.3.3.  My
network uses several community strings so I have to configure them for each
network.  For a network that uses the loopback address on Cisco routers
(all with a mask of 255.255.255.255) NV does not use the correct community
string to poll the nodes.  They are discovered since they are in a seedfile
but only as a generic, non snmp device with the single interface.  I have a
feeling this has something to do with the mask of the loopback address.  I
am using the -u flag (not really needed) on netmon.  The addresses are all
on a.b.x.x and I use the wildcard entry of a.b.*.*.  When I enter
individual entries for each router (a.b.1.2) the correct community string
is used.  Any suggestions out there?  I can't just make this my default
community since I have several of these networks out there configured the
same.
