I experience the same problem, I don't know if it is a Tivoli problem or a
CDE type problem but is very annoying.  You must set up the Tivoli
environment if you want to perform any "Tivoli" functions from NetView,
including several of the new functions included in the TIPN.  It would be
nice if this could happen "automatically" for the root user as well.

Anyone from Tivoli support with suggestions on whether this is something
that can be fixed in the /etc/Tivoli/setup_env.sh script?
