NetView 7.1.2 AIX 4.3.3
Could someone tell me what role the Physical Address plays in how NetView handles nodes? Here is my question:
NetView discovers a NON-SNMP node who is DHCP. The lease time is short and the next day when the machine logs back on, it gets a new address. The node down delete interval is set to 10 days. Do I now have 2 objects in the NetView database, one being up and the other being down, or is NetView "smart" enough to recognize by the Physical Address that this is the same node and delete the old object?
We are trying to use NetView to help tell us where our Tivoli Endpoints might be lacking on nodes by using a merge process the checks the NetView database against the Endpoint database by IP address and I am trying to iron out the anomalies. Has anyone else tried anything similar to this?
