Hi Jane,
               I am currently running 7.1.4 FixPack4  on AIX 5.3.3...  We
are currently going through a server refresh project and my Unix team is
wanting to move to a Linux or Solaris 10 box.  I have had very little
exposure to Linux, so would Suse 9.1 Professional be your recommendation?

Thanks, Dave

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.
