When using NetView with a RDBMS, you install the database component and
run the appropriate SQL scripts from /usr/OV/scripts.  You also have to
create the RIM object by which NetView talks to the RDBMS.  Then you
configure NetView to use the RDBMS which creates your file

Now this dbconf.dat generally has a line in it (by default) which says
"netview@<netview server name>"      with your NV server name
appropriately specified.  I generally run with my RIM host on a
different m/c from my  netview so this default doesn't work.  I simply
edit dbconf.dat to specify the exact name of my RIM object in my Tivoli
database (usually netview), NOT netview@nvserver.  The RIM object then
knows the database type, server location, database user, etc.  This has
always worked for me and I have never had any success with the
RIM@server  syntax.

Question is, why the @servername syntax as the default??  Am I going to
get bitten in the future by not using this?  Has anyone made it work?

Any insights gratefully appreciated,
