You must have root authority to administer your Netview.
I'm not a member of the Unix team here, but I have the Netview box root's 
password.   I just use it for Netview purposes.   As far as pure AIX is 
concerned, then the Unix team do the job.

I don't really understand why having the Netview box root's password could 
'accidentally bring other systems down'.   As long as you work on your  own box 
and not on the others, I can't see any problem.
