Path View Maps

Hello All, 

I am having an issue with the Path view as whenever I select the path view between any given 2 nodes it gives one of the below results 

1. if I select 2 nodes by their names it gives me unable to resolve the node name.

2. if I select 2 nodes by their IP addresses it gives me that the 2 nodes are directly connected together ( which is wrong ) 


so, is their anyone faced the same issue and how to solve it ?

Note: i am using NNMi 10.40

thanks in advance 


Best Regards 

Shady Kozman

Re: Path View Maps

Hello Shady

Thanks for posting

Please consider the following:

The Source and Destination nodes must meet either of the following criteria:

Support SNMP and be previously discovered by NNMi

Have traceroute available

A switch should not be used as a Source or Destination node in Path View maps. To view connectivity between switches, use the Layer 2 Neighbor View.

All access routers and any Layer 2 devices between the Source and Destination nodes must meet the following criteria:

  • Support SNMP
  • Be previously discovered by NNMi

Please double check the information,
