You should be able to do this.  First, you will have to define what options you 
want the user to have in Netview Security.  Access the configuration by running 
nvsec_admin.  Then, you will create a map with only the devices that he needs 
access to.  Then, you will need to make a startup script that logs him into 
netview, with his map, with read only status, loading it into the background, 
and then exiting the shell.  You will have to make sure you disable his access 
to commands that access a shell.
