There is a hanging action started by actionsvr. you can see with netstat that
udp port 1670 is in use. With lsof you can find who ist it. kill the process
and actionsvr can start.

Subject: actionsvr not starting
I'm not able to search the nv-l archives - no answer after 4 hours.
Also, the knowledge base at Tivoli is temporarily out of service.
So, here I am ;-)
I'm running NetView V5.0 on AIX4.2.1.
When I try to start nv6000, I get the following error:
ERROR: The following REQUIRED daemons are not running:
As root user, start all the daemons by using one of the following methods:
a) use the smit (TME 10 desktop) utility
b) issue the command: /usr/OV/bin/ovstart
c) rerun this command
So, as root, I run:
exit status: exit(1)
I look in: /usr/OV/log/nvaction.alog and see:
98/08/19 14:58:29 : local host is delta
98/08/19 14:58:29 nl_Actionsvr.C : Unable To Open action
Channel Trying Port 1670
98/08/19 14:58:29 nl_Actionsvr.C : Unable to open port
Any ideas, please?
Thank you --Greg Redder
