I installed the Tivoli Framework 3.2 immediately followed by
creating a Netview Server (V5) on a 7025/F50 RS6K running
AIX4.2.1 yesterday.   When I tried to start the user interface
from the TEC it took a very long time coming up ( sat on
"initialising..." ) and then was inadvertently stopped by me
accidentally bringing down my PC X client.  Upon trying again
I noticed that the process would not bring up the GUI.  Upon
checking the processes running I found "ovw" to be still running.
Unfortunately - any attempts to kill this process were unsucess-
ful - it simply attached itself to the init process and sat there.
I am scheduling a shutdown of the machine to clear this out,
but I am concerned that this may indicate a deeper problem.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?  Is there a patch to
overcome  this behaviour?
