Hi All,
       Can someone please provide me a technical explanation as to why you need to be logged on as 'root' to install Netview?  I currently have a new Solaris 10 box that Im going to load Netview 7.1.5 on and my Unix team does not want to give me the root password. They have given me 'sudo root' and with sudo you already have the same level of access as the Unix Systems Administrators and can grab a root shell as needed.  The only location the root user can log into a server is on the serial console.  Ssh into the server as root and running the su command will not work per the ITRM Unix security template.  

Thanks, Dave
