Hello Everyone.

NetView for UNIX 6.0.2 w/ IY22983 netmon fix on AIX 4.3.3 w/ ML 9.

NetView is having some trouble dealing with the Cisco Content Switch
(Arrowpoint apCS50). Both TAC and local Cisco people have told us that VIPs
do not reliably respond to ICMP polling. So I unmanaged the VIP interface
objects on each CCS. 

I then decided to use SNMP status polling for the CCS. I added the $node
entry to the netmon.seed file. I removed them from the map (a big mistake).
NetView rediscovered them but deleted them as soon as I demand polled one or
the other switch. NetView complained of a duplicate address. 

Can anyone out there share their technique for managing these things?

Thanks in advance!
