After you telnet'd in, did you login to NetView as well?  Once NetView
security is enabled even root has to login with nvauth before it can do

Hello List,

AIX 5.2 ML 6, Netview 7.1.4 FP4
I enabled security and now whenever I telnet to the server and log in as
root I can not run any Netview commands, such as ovobjprint. I get the
following error:
nvs_isClientAuthorized(): permission denied for "nvsec_admin".
 A IBM Tivoli NetView login is required to permit the requested operation.
authorized=0, status=36

I created a nvsecadm group and added root and a non-root user (since I
wanted nonroot to access nvsec_admin). but now root can not run commands?

How do I by-pass this besides turning off security?
