Things may have changed and I just didn't know about it, but I thought about 
7-9 months ago a Tivoli person was put on this list just for supplying 
information and gathering feature requests and those sorts of things...  I 
don't recall her name, but she was also responsible for the distribution of PRE 
7.0 literature.. (anyone recall what I am talking about?)  Anyway, doesn't this 
exist any longer?
anyway, just my $.02

the product. Complaining on this forum won't do much of anything but
elicit sympathy from other users, or perhaps act as a means of
organizing the masses.  8-)

I believe the party line is to contact your Tivoli rep and open an
enhancement request.

Or, open a support query asking "how do i do this in NetView?"  When
the answer comes back "you can't," the last kind support tech I had
told me it was not possible in the current product, but offered to
open an enhancement request for me....which was mighty handy and

I requested SNMPv3 support be added as an enhancement request a couple
of weeks ago.  That one's gonna take some work....key infrastructure
and all.  

I also requested SNMPv2 support on teh MLM's for trap handling--that's
a biggie for us, and I don't imagine it being too awful hard to
