Alain I'm assuming of course you are referring to the migrate script on the
v5.0 CD.   Thanks for the suggestion I will try that method.

If you are talking about migrating while saving the configuration of
your NetView 4.1, here's what Blaine Owens once sent :

Shutdown NetView and run the
migrate script on your "old" server - it will create a directory like
"/usr/OV.back.v4r1". Copy (rdist or whatever) this directory to your
"new" server. When you install NetView 5.1 it will detect
"/usr/OV.back.v4r1" and migrate all of your version 4 goodies.

The only problem I ran into was that some of my bitmaps from 3rd party
apps were symbolic links to files in other directories. Once I copied
these over to my new server the migration worked like a charm.
