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 10.112.15.126 & Mask 255.255.255.0 & other 10.112.15.96 with Mask 255.255.255.0
It is shown perfect in LAB Environment NetView Server. Where as in Production NetView Server it show as, 10.112.15.126 shows Mask 255.255.255.248, & 10.112.15.126 shows Mask 255.0.0.0
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.
