>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.
