I am almost always working with newly shipped, pre-loaded machines.
So I expect (and customers require) Netview to work with the latest
recommended maintenance level of the supported release. This
policy has only gotten me into trouble when something got seriously
broken, like SNMP, or pax, and there were always fixes available
from AIX support when that happened.
New machines are shipping at ML 8 or 9 now. So if I were you, I
would take a backup, load on the current recommended maintenance,
and try the install. I would definitely not run with a bare 4.3.3 with no
maintenance at all. I've seen no problems with ML 8 and 6.0.2.

Please respond to IBM
I found and installed X11.vfb on the AIX CDs.
The next prereq complaint was that AIX 4.3.3 needed maintenance applied to
bring it up to 4.3.3-02
Does anyone have any concerns with maintenance 4.3.3-02 and other Tivoli

I received this error when trying to upgrade from 6.02 to 7.1.
A prerequisite package is missing. Please install X11.vfb before
installing Tivoli Netview.
I search for this on the tivoli web site, but did not get any hits.
Does anyone know what this is and where I can find it?
