it won't do any harm to source the new NetView environment script instead:

No, that's not implied.

V7 can be installed two different ways:

1. The traditional Tivoli Framework method.

2.  So-called "Standalone", where Framework (as you know it) is not used.
I say "(as you know it)" because enough components of Framework
installation technology is supplied with the "Standalone" packaging to
support installation from a base common with 1. above.

The prereq check script doesn't know which method you will use to install,
thus the message can, or, perhaps should not, be ignored.

Whether your users "source the Tivoli environment" is more a function of
whether they will require access to Tivoli resources than NetView
resources.  Remember that when NetView is installed by Framework, NetView
becomes a Tivoli resource, and so it would be appropriate to "source the
Tivoli environment" for NetView users.  If NetView is "Standalone"
installed, then use of NetView would not be reason to "source the Tivoli
environment" by itself.

    Does this answer imply that when we upgrade to 7.1, we can remove the
sourcing line from our .kshrc files we created for every user so that
setup_env.sh would be run everytime they logged in?

Solution # 1044820

If you run the NVprereq.sh script found in the TOOLS directory of the
product CDROM (usually run prior to installing NetView) you may get the
following error message:
"ERROR:  Framework setup script /etc/Tivoli/setup_env.sh is missing.
Please add a soft link from Framework setup script to
You may ignore this message if you are installing NetView with the
"instalnv" command as documented on page 98 of the Release Notes.  If you
are using Tivoli Framework to install NetView you should not ignore this
message, and take corrective action.  The missing script should always be
available when Framework is installed.
