I guess I would want 2 rw maps open at the same time. Or else, if I do
have 2 users with the same map open at the same time, how do I ensure that
both users will be viewing the same status/label for all objects. Using
the OvwSetSymbolLabel call, only the user with the rw map open will have
the correct label, the user with the read-only map open will display the
incorrect (old) symbol label. Is there any way to keep these in sync,
other than manually refreshing the map?

1) Is there a way to update the label on a read only map? The code I have
so far only seems to be updating the read-write map. Only if I refresh the
read-only map, does the label change take effect.
-- Correct. I do not know of a way to otherwise 'Sync' the maps. Not sure
which Netview version you are using, but in 7.1.x, there is only 1 RW map,
though many 'web' interfaces. Not sure how this can help, but it is
something I am looking forward to working with when we get our 7.1.3
2) It also only seems to work if the GUI is started by the admin user. Do
I need to change the permissions on the map or user, or something similar?
-- Not sure. I took a quick look at our permissions and they are also:
Are you asking if there can be more than 1 rw map? Or is your concern
getting the 'generic' ability to write to the map?
In the past, I have only be able to have 1 user update the OVw DB. If you
want to force a user to have a Read-Only map, you can do that on the
like call to Netview. Otherwise, this may be a good question for the list,
but as I remember, only 1 RW map all others cant update DB.
Best of luck,
