I am having similar problems after installation of the Netview/NT v5.1.1
patch. Pre 5.1.1, accessing the webserver for Netview/NT was very
simple....just provide the url, and it appeared. Since installing the 5.1.1
patch, users are now faced with a sign-on screen requesting a username and
password. In addition to anonymous failing authentication, the userid and
password to access the actual desktop also fails authentication. Anybody
else with ideas?

Subject: Password problem
I installed Netview 5.1 (Framework 3.6) on AIX 4.3.2. Netview is
running OK. However, I've a strange problem with the AIX passwd
function after running Netview.
I'm able to change the OS password without any hassle, but once I start
Netview, I get "error connecting to passwd database". Even if I exit
out of Netview, the problem remains, unless I restart the AIX CDE. The
problem repeats after I start Netview.
I tried changing passwords using smitty, but to no avail. Anybody
encountered such problem?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
