Otto, I have always used B) option, running ovw -mapcount first. I do thing
there is a difference in what you use first, I believe I have seen it done both
ovw -mapcount is a troubleshooting command that checks the consistency between
the map database maintained by ovw and the object database maintained by
ovwdb(1M). It checks the values of map reference counts stored in the object
database and corrects these values, if necessary.

The ovtopofix command is used to detect and correct inconsistencies that may
have developed between the IP topology database maintained by ovtopmd and the
database maintained by ovwdb for the ovw command.
