I have run NetView on a Suse 9.1 Professional and on SLES 9 for at least 18 months now. As you mention, you do need to do a slight hack to get around the "unsupported version" to run on SuSE pro but this has not caused me any pain - however I would have to recommend you install on a SLES 9 system if this is a production NetView because of the support issue.

Prior to this, I ran on RedHat 7.2 (when it was still supported).

My personal preference is for SuSE as I find it a much more manageble version of Linux from a Sys Admin point-of-view. As far as NetView goes, I had no issue with either.

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.
