Hmmm.   Sounds like you need to contact Sun.  I have NetView 5.1.1 running
on Solaris 2.5.1 in our lab and ovwdb runs fine.
We have had reports of other strange behavior on 2.5.1,  from other
customers,  which also went away when they went to 2.6, but mostly about
trapd, and nothing that I am aware of about this problem or about ovwdb.
This only underscores that this is likely to be a Sun problem and not one
NetView can easily solve.  Sun has a boatload of 2.5.1 maintenance
available, and we have it all installed.

In the trapd case however, we even went so far as to change our processing
on Sun because it could not always handle  a process opening a socket back
to itself, which is something trapd does on other operating systems when he
has a problem.  But it took us weeks to figure that one out and to provide
even a trial fix.  So we don't change code often if we think the OS vendor
is at fauIt.   I don't know what to make of your problem description about
malloc not being found.  I haven't seen that.

Hi Netviewers,
Has anyone had difficulty getting Netview 5.1.1 running on Solaris 2.5.1?
We keep having ovwdb being killed because its unable to find the symbol
malloc. (malloc is in the correct library). It worked fine in 2.6
unfortuately that's our test system.
