There is no such option for NetView NT or UNIX.  If you want to change
databases, you must replace everything under \usr\OV\databases\openview.
It is best if you simply just install NetView on the new box and let it
discover the network itself.

Subject:  Changing location of Netview databases

We are using Netview v5.0A on NT 4.0 (SP3). As we are running more than
one server (for different networks), we would like to move the databases
off the respective machines and onto a single machine running SQL Server
(perhaps v6.5, hopefully later). The problem is, how do you tell Netview
to no longer look under \usr\ov\databases, instead to look at (for
instance) D:\NV1\databases (where D:\ is mapped to \\machineX).
Obviously the easy solution under Unix would be to keep the same path,
but to mount a partition from the database keeper at the same point.
This (unless I have even less NT knowledge than I thought I had) will
not work in NT, so I was wondering: Is there an option somewhere, or a
path in one of the configuration files, to point the databases somewhere
