I've got a similar issue.
In my case, I have a Cisco 4402 Wireless LAN Controller which has been set to show the web view "Wireless Controller" but of course when I click on the node to view what I think will be a lovely wireless view, it opens the Node Details view instead.
It makes no difference if I change the view <insert view here> and click submit; it still shows the Node Details
I'm running 9.5.1.
I havee the same issue with wireless and ESX. Regardless of what I set the view to I only get "Node Detail" view...
