You can use the API, but if you have netmon polling that IP device on interval, it will notice the incorrect status and change it back.  Start at "man OVwSetStatusOnObject", this will give you a start.  If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask.  Some statuses are "Reserved" and it wont allow you to change it via the API (eg Acknowledged), but there are programmatic ways around that.
Good luck,

We are trying to find a way to modify an object in NetView. If we know the node name, and want to change its status from say down, to up, because of an additional verification that proved it was up, how would we go about doing it? Are there any utilities or where should I look in the API?
