Basically, No.

RDBMS support for the NetView for UNIX versions requires using the Tivoli RIM (Relational Database Interface Manager) product,  which in turn requires the Tivoli Framework.  The way it works is that NetView talks to RIM, and RIM to the RDBMS.  As it says in the 7.1.4 Release Notes, in the section "Product Notes",  under the seventh bulleted item, that  there is no RIM support for Linux because there is no support for RIM in the Tivoli Management Region on Linux.   But this may have changed recently.   I don't know as I don't keep up on Framework issues.

But even if RIM were now available on Linux so that you could install it and NetView using the Framework, I would not expect that MySQL was a supported RDBMs for RIM.  In the past only DB2, Informix, Oracle, and Sybase schemas were available for NetView.

Please respond to

[nv-l] NetView and MySQL


NetView        : 7.4.1

OS                : SuSE 8.1 Professional

Does NetView support MySQL? If so then can you please refer to me a document which explains how it can be done.

Thanks and Regards
