We have used Netview for Solaris for many years now, but due to Sun servers
cost, we are looking at Netview on Linux as an alternative.
For those running Netview on Linux, which is the prefer flavor of Linux
to install Netview???
Checking the CNVprereq.sh script for Netview
7.1.4, the only supported versions are SuSe 8.0 and
8.1 R2, RedHat 2.1AS R2 and United Linux 1.0 R2. We
tried installing Netview 7.1.4 on a server running Fedora 5.0 which of-course
complained of “Unsupported Version of Linux Operating System.”
According to some system administrators here we could hack the install and try
to make it work, but we will have the same problem for every Netview upgrade
coming our way. I’m not a Linux expert, but it seems that the Red Hat version
is the most popular and stable one.
Thanks for any information.
