This is covered in the release notes for 6.0.2. It involves exporting
the environment variable 'NVMAPGLOBALACK=1' in the profile
of the users. Be aware that there is a bug in it at 6.0.2 under some
circumstances - I think it was reported here that the cure was found,
though, so if you upgrade to 6.0.2 or 6.0.3 you can ask Support
about it.  I believe it was a problem when there was more than one
Motif map open, and they would get going back and forth with
the Christmas-tree effect. Kind of scary and pretty at the same time.
But I've used it safely and often in web environments, where there
is only one Motif map.

Hey - why not go all the way to V7.1, and get the operators onto
that web client? (no sense in showing the the V6 client and then
changing again...) Lots of these issues go away then. Including my
favorite, dynamic membership in SmartSets, which you could never
make good use of in a read/only Motif map. V7.1 is really designed
for shops like yours with a number of operators.

How do you enable "Global Acknowledge Mode"??

As designed at 5.1.3.  Upgrade to 6.0.2 or better and use global
mode.  It will do what you want.

AIX 4.3.3 - Netview 5.1.3

We are now instructing our operators to acknowledge container symbols when
there is a failure that is known.  This works fine when we have one
of 'netview' running.  Acknowledging works as expected.  We have come
some problems when bringing up another instance of 'netview' (TME10 GUI).
The background is we have a second AIX box that will remotely shell into
first box already running an instance of 'netview'.  We will bring up this
second instance of TME10 as a read-only map, which has worked fine for some
time.  Our problem is that the second instance of the map does not seems to
synchronize the currently acknowledged containers, nor if I acknowledge a
container while both are up do they then sync.

My question(s) are:

- Is this 'as designed'?

- If so, why?  Pros/Cons.  Why is this desirable?

- Can both maps be synced up?

- What are my options?

Hopefully I am not missing any information,
Thanks for your time,
