Hi Dave,
As Mark says, I would NOT recommend SuSE 9.1 Professional for a production environment - use SLES 9, which IS supported. My SuSE 9.1 Professional is probably the best tested system I have but it is still not strictly supported. The next jolly comes later this month when I need to upgrade my SuSE 9.1 Pro to SuSE 10 Pro - again, it won't be supported for NetView but I need to move the system for other reasons and this isn't production stuff. Has anyone tried this??

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.

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.
