What i fear the most ( in addition to James)  if you use a tape to install
Netview is that the Aix odm (the system object database) will know nothing about
Netview ie you will not use smitty nv6000 anymore.

Only my two cents.

Haven't tried it.  I would guess that the apps would run fine, but that you will
have a real problem with Framework and NetView. If you install the Framework
manually, and then  use restore for NetView, your new Framework will not know
NetView is installed, because he (the Framework) did not do it.  He as a
database too, you know.

You could probably manually update that database if you knew how, and if you
knew what files to lay down (there are markers kept of each product
installation) but I don't know what those are.

I don't know who much time you would save but it might be wiser to install the
NetView and the NetView 5.1.2 patch manually as well, and then add your other
NetView-related apps, since I think those just add things in files and no
database knows about them (but I don't know that for a fact).

Oftentimes, you can upgrade AIX with your apps still in place.  Have you looked
at that?  If so, then perhaps you could do a restore of the old operating system
on the new box, and then just upgrade AIX.

 Good luck

Subject:  [NV-L] Backup/restore of NetView

We're planning to upgrade the hardware for our NetView system.  (H50-H70)
Running AIX 4.32 and NetView 5.12

We're trying to save time with installation of NetView and other apps and
restore from tape.
The new system will use same IP Address and hostname.  AIX and Framework
will get installed manually and the rest restored from tape.

Has any one tried this?

My other option would be the migration backup and install, but this would
take more time.  Have to install Ciscoview, Snifferview and Optivity as well.

Thanks.  Peter
