I have done some similar work for routers that have ISDN lines.   I will
give you the highlights of what I would do in a script.

1.  You need a new boolean field defined in NetView such as
2.  You need a list of your router names in a file.   You can get this from
NetView in a number of ways.
3.   For every router, do an "ovobjprint" into a temporary file and grep
that file for the words "Frame Relay".    If found, then set the
hasFrameRelay to TRUE.   (I use nvdbimport to do this from a list of
selection names)
4.   Use nvdbformat to select routers with the proper field values and

Since I still have friends in Services that does this for a living, I am
not sending you the script.....but this should get you there.

Kind regards,
