There are a couple of other problems with NetView V5 on AIX V4.3.1 I
have noticed.

1) Web Client access will fail due to modifications made in the way AIX
v4.3.1 has changed the API for the encrypted password file.
  This was opened as a problem with Tivoli support.  The problem is
fixed in NetView V5.1.  The work around is to : "Turn off web client
security entirely by editting usr/OV/web/httpd/conf/access.conf and
commenting out the 'require valid-user' lines."

2) AIX user id creation, and password modification fails after starting
NetView.  I suspect this is related to the above problem.  I have not
reported this to Tivoli support since NetView v5.1 is so close to
availability.  If you stop NetView, the user id and password functions
work again.
