I have several questions regarding netview security that I hope some one
might be able to help me with.
1./ I have been setting up user profiles and am quite happy with the default
settings however I want to change the operator profile so as the the group
cannot delete maps.
Which security registration file needs to be modified to prohibit users from

> I tell customers to do it once with yes and once with no, to cover both

> users from creating or deleting maps.
2./ Does a unix group need to be added or does the gui interface take care
> Both the users and the groups in Netview security are separate entities
> from unix users and groups. They don't exist anywhere except in Netview.
3./ Are there any bugs associated with version 5.1.1 and security.It behaves
rather strangely,either locks up or when you press ok to submit changes the
whole app closes.
Any one experienced this?I noticed there were a couple of bug fixes in ver
5.1.2 that mentioned nvsec_admin,perhaps worth installing the patch.
