Re: [nv-l] Two location files
It will apply the location.conf to new
things added to the map. Whatever location.conf is in effect at the time
the ipmap process starts is the one that is used for new things. And don't
try moving things while location.conf is in effect. So if you close all
maps, then swap the location.conf, then start the new map from the commandline
netview -map test2
it will create that map called test2
from the current objects without rediscovering them and place them according
to the new location.conf.
This will soon become unmanagable. But
you could do it to get your locations and routers placed, and then discard
both location.conf files and do your ongoing maintenance manually.

|[nv-l] Two location files|
Does anybody know if it is possible to have two different maps using
different location files on the same NV box ?
I want to have two different views of the environment, one geographical
and the other one logical (or by function). To accomplish that I was
hoping I could use two different location files....but it seems to me that
NV only looks for a "location.conf" file when it is discovering
network...is it possible to use another file ?
Thanks in advance.
