[nv-l] incorrect status colors
AIX 4.3.3 Netview 5.1
Here's the scenario (forgive me if this is vague):
We have User A running netview on our netview host. We have User B on
another box and running netview on the netview host via ssh session. So,
in effect, there are 2 netview sessions running on the netview host, one
displayed on the netview host, and one displayed on the other box.
The problem we see is that User A shows green on a status icon while at the
same time User B is showing red on the same status icon. The icon is
something for which we have customized polling daemons installed. I know
this info is pretty general, but my question is:
- does each individual netview user have its own topology database
(maybe one is being updated and the other is not?)?
- are there permission restrictions on a user's map (maybe User B
can't write to it?)?
The answers may explain why we are seeing different status on the same
icons for 2 different users.
We have noticed that ending all netview sessions, performing
ovstop/ovstart, and restarting the netview sessions usually straightens
One other strange thing is that we installed a 2nd netview host. The
topology database on the 1st netview host was copied onto the 2nd netview
host. We never see the same problem with the 2nd netview host.
