It's not that easy.  Many files have been modified and must be merged with
the new changes.
This is accomplished through migration.

On your 4.1 system there is an option to backup NetView for migration.  Do
that.  It will create a big file in /usr/OV which will be a sort of
composite for all your customized files.  You move that to the new machine.
Then when you install, the install process will find that file and merge
all the changes.

But I would not install 5.0.   It is already out of support.  There are no
fixes for it, so any problems you have, you have until you upgrade to 5.1
which shipped last September.  Indeed the first patch for that, 5.1.1, is
shipping next week.  If you install 5.0, you will only have to do it all
over again soon.  And the migration scripts have been enhanced in 5.1.

We are currently running v4.1e on Digital Unix and  have had v5.0 sitting
in a box for quite some time.   I realize that v5.1 will be out soon, but
we would like to try installing v5.0 first, but on a different Digital Unix
machine so as not to interrupt the current netview install.   My question
... I would like to copy the current install or whatever files are needed
to the new server and then install v5.0.   What files or directories from
v4.1are critical to copy over to the new server before the new install
proceeds?   Thanks in advance for help or suggestions.
