I think the framework installation executes the NVprereq.sh which is on the
NetView CD under the /TOOLS directory.

The script starts with:
if [ -f /tmp/.noNVPrereqCheck ]; then
  echo "Prerequisite checking has been bypassed as requested."
  exit 0

So try:
touch /tmp/.noNVPrereqCheck
before the installation and look how it works.

Kind regards

I'm trying to install NV 7.1.3 on Linux RH 7.2 as a framework install, but
I only have 128Mb ram & it is refusing to install - all the other pre-req's
are ok.
I've previously used this machine as a non-fwk netview install & despite a
little moan about too little memory, it works well enough - this is only a
test machine.
The only reason I want to use a fwk install is to test TIPN which appears
to only work against a NV server which is a MN.
Is there a work-around / script to copy & edit to avoid this?  I've had a
look at what was copied to the machine, but it seems the additional pre-req
check is being done from a script that is inside a .pkt & is only extracted
at runtime...
Is it possible (I can't see it myself) to install as non-fwk and then
"attach" to fwk after install by creating the necessary objects in the
oserv db...?
I've had a look at the archives but can't see anything that fits.

Thanks in advance
