Thread-topic: [NV-L] Running Netview as with limited root access.
we do this now.  we relay on the tivoli framework to give up access, when we need root.  you will NOT be able to add mibs, as far as I can tell, nor add traps, with sudo.  you get a memory fault when you try that.
good luck

Subject: [NV-L] Running Netview as with limited root access.

Our group here does not have root access to our Netview installation.


We have discussed options with our AIX sysadmin.


We can define sudo rights to start/stop Netview.


I have identified the following commands we need sudo for:






We would like to change group ownership to the /usr/OV directory so that our regular users can modify config files.


Has anyone done this?

Is there any danger in modifying group permissions on /usr/OV?

Are there any other executable files I should add to the sudo list?
