netviewd dies? with a core or not? Did you get anything in /usr/OV/PD/FFDC
that's of any use?
There have been a couple of netviewd fixes since 7.1.4 FP02 but none of
them specifically for that.
And there's this in the FP05 readme:
New notes for fix pack 05
Troubleshooting: The netviewd daemon does not start (UNIX only)
If you have trouble starting the netviewd daemon, follow these steps:
Stop the Xvfb process using the kill command.
Run the following command to restart the Xvfb process:
If the problem persists, check the /usr/OV/log/netview_daemon.log file. If
the local host name entry for the Tivoli NetView server (the name in
the /etc/hosts file) does not match what the domain nameserver (DNS)
provides as the host name, the netviewd daemon might have a problem
starting. The following message displays in
the /usr/OV/log/netview_daemon.log file: Couldn't open display
To avoid this problem, ensure that the local host name in the /etc/hosts
file matches the host name provided by DNS. The /etc/hosts file must
include both the fully qualified host name and the local host name on the
line that specifies the IP address of the host. An entry in the /etc/hosts
file must be similar to the following example:
126.96.36.199 myhost.local.domain.com myhost
Notes: In this example, "myhost" is the local host name.
Beyond this, I have nothing else to offer.
