There is no simple way to do this. It is a completely manual migration 

TEC used to ship an NV6000 adapter for AIX which was identical to the one 
we shipped on NT, until we added the smartset stuff.  Then they decided 
that they didn't have to support their adapter on AIX  since NetView had 
an internal one and discontinued it.  They never had one for Solaris nor 

So I am afraid you will have to transfer your slot mappings and such to 
trapd.conf using xnmtrap and then use a ruleset (you can start with 
forwradall.rs)  to send everything to TEC.  Once you get comfortable with 
rulesets you can pare down what you send to TEC.    That is the basic 

Some folks prefer to send all their events using wpostemsg in a script, 
called as an action, either right from the trap definition, so that 
ovactiond sends it, or in a ruleset, so that correlation and filtering is 
done first.  You'll have to decide which route is best for you.

we are planning to migrate our Netview system from NT to UNIX.
However, we have done many customizations on the tecad_nv6k.* files on NT 
to accomodate different vendors equipments.
It seems that the UNIX version uses another mechanism to integrate with 
TEC (via the rulesets).
What is the best way to transfer between the 2 TEC forwarding mechanisms?
