Hello Paul,

We have two similar environment for NetView Server, one in LAB Environment and other in Production Environment.

I had confirmed the Subnet Mask set on the Server interface is perfect as well the same discovered by our LAB NetView Server, for e.g. I had checked for two out of a list of such, with IP & Mask & other with Mask

It is shown perfect in LAB Environment NetView Server. Where as in Production NetView Server it show as, shows Mask, & shows Mask

Can U please advice which file or table we can modify manually so that the mask get set to normal.

    One other thing that I thought of that you might want to check is the
    interface on the
    router leading into this subnet. If the subnet is incorrect there it may
    also cause problems.
