Hi James,
Thanks for your reply.
To answer the first part of your mail, I guess probably the reason why we went for SQL database was because of the query part but then I am not too sure coz i wasnt with the organisation back then. The setup was done by IBM India and they said that netview could not generate reports of its own and hence recommended a software call WanInsight for report generation (real time and historical reports. Stuffs like reports for checking whether the vendor is meeting the SLA for link uptime etc..). We are now facing problems with this product and IBM and the Netsol(the company which made WanInsight) are both unable to solve the problem. I was wondering if there were similiar software which any one in the group was using so that we could evaluate and probably use it.
For the second part of your mail, you have answered my query regarding Multilink (My apologies, I was not aware of Metaconnections).
Thanks once again James.

I have no recommendations for reporting software.  Perhaps someone else does, but I think you need to clarify what kind of  reports you are looking for.
What are you trying to report on?   If you have SQL Server rather than Access, then you had to have  a reason to purchase that, so what was the purpose if not to generate your own queries and reports?

As for the multi-link question, I don't understand what you mean.  Is what you are calling a "multi-link" different from what we call a "metaconnection" -- which is tow or more links into the same network?  NetView will monitor each link in a metaconnection independently -- you'll get traps about both links, even though they form one logical link.  It will be represented on the m! ap as one "fat" link, but if you click on it,  it splits into separate "thin" links.

As my name suggests I am kinda new to netview. Can any one tell me which would be the best reporting software which can be used with Netview  and MS SQL to generate reports.
Also how can I configure netview to monitor two links individually in a Multilink? I have configured NV to discover from the seed file.
