I run Netview 5.0A on NT and have had the same problem in the past. A
solution that we found was to open (NT path - I'm sure if you tilt the
slashes you should find the same file) \usr\ov\conf\ovsuf and find the
_last_ entry for netmon (there will be many). The first character of
this line will be a '1'. Change this value to a '0' (zero). I think at
this point you may need to restart the daemons (if not the service or
the machine - try the daemons first of course).

The problem seems to be that Netview wishes to change a configuration
parameter, so in the initialisation file (ovsuf) goes to create a new
entry for netmon with the new parameter, changes the old instance to a
'1', sets the first digit to a '0' to indicate the active instance, but
somewhere along the way falls over. It happened to us several times in
the space of a couple of weeks (at times more than twice a day), but
came right all by itself (though we did use this temporary fix every
time).

Good luck.
