Make sure NetView is using the correct SNMP community string for these devices. 
If they have strings different than your Global Default strings, the device will be presented on the map as a generic computer device.
You can use the Tools > Mib Browser to test/check.  Good luck.

Its been a while since I've had to do this and I need my memory refreshed.
I'm trying to get a few Cisco 2940 switches ( to show up with a suitable generic Cisco icon instead of a plain green square.
So far I've added the following to oid_to_type: Systems:Cisco Switch:BH

and to oid_to_sym: Switch:cisco-Cat2940Family

after copying /usr/OV/fields/Cat2950Family.fields to Cat2940Family.fields.


I've deleted the offending objects from all submaps, stopped netmon, run ovmapcount -a, ovtopofix -A, ovw -fields, ovw -config, ovw -verify and restarted netmon and the R/W map.  These devices are still showing up as plain green squares although the vendor and agent fields are now set to Cisco.

What am I missing or screwing up?
