netviewd always gets the map read-write unless you take it away from him.
The ovstatus shows it's no mystery who has it.
If you want to take the read-write map away from him, then start the GUI
netview -d console
But if there are users on the web client, this will boot them off and they
will have to log back in. They get whatever map netviewd has

[nv-l] Read-Write Map Unavailable
Please respond to
Every time I open the NetView GUI, using nv6000, I get a read-only map. I
have killed all processes, booted all users, and even re-booted the box.
Map still comes up read-only. When doing an ovstatus immediately following
a re-boot, I get the following:
object manager name: netviewd
last message: Initialization complete, opened map 'default' as
exit status: -
How can I find out what's opening the Read-Write map and how can I stop it?
