I follow thoese steps and complete the installation.

The following documents what needs to be done to make NetView V5
 and the TME10 Framework, work correctly on AIX 4.3.
  1. Install X11 fonts that are prereq for NetView but are not
     installed with AIX 4.3
  2. Install AIX 4.3 PTF U453944 and reboot.
     (AIX 4.3.1 includes this ptf)
  3. Get Tivoli Framework patch 3.2-TMF-0004.
       Tivoli patches are available via the web URL:
          Select 'patches'
       To download patches, you must be registered. To register:
       use the same web page, select 'Register'
       If you must have the patch immediately, ftp to the
       netview ftp site, and cd to  fix/s-lynneb
           Download 3.2-TMF-0004.tar.Z

  4. Mount Tivoli Framework 3.2 CD:
          cd into the directory, <framework_install_dir>, that
          you have created for framework installation.
          Run the wpreinst.sh script.  wpreinst links files from
          the cdrom to to your installation directory.  wpreinst
          will fail, but that's ok, hecause the links are done.

  5. From patch 3.2-TMF-0004:
     copy wserver over <framework_install_dir>/wserver
     copy  wserver_gui over
     copy wserver_cli over
  6. Run "wserver -c <cdrom_path>" to install Framework 3.2.
  7. Source the /etc/Tivoli/setup_env.sh script and start the
     Tivoli desktop.
  8. Install the Tivoli Framework patch 3.2-TMF-0004.
  9. Mount the NetView for UNIX V5 CD and install the TME 10
     NetView Framework Patch.
 10. Exit the Tivoli desktop and run "odadmin reexec all" to
     resynch all oserv daemons.
 11. Start Tivoli desktop.
 12. The following assumes that you starting ovw through either
     /usr/OV/bin/nv6000  or  /usr/OV/netview script.
     (or the /usr/bin/netview, /bin/netview, /usr/bin/nv6000,
     and /bin/nv6000 soft links to them)
     Create the file /usr/OV/bin/applsetup containing these lines.
     export LIBPATH
     If the user starts ovw any other way, it is up to him to
     make sure this LIBPATH setting is in effect for the NetView
     execution tree.
  ***Load the X11.compat.lib.X11R5 fileset
     from the AIX 4.3.0 CD in order to get the X11 R5 libraries.
 13. Start netivew.
