Hi Bonnie,

  Just as a side note - while Optivity NMS 8.1 does support the Solaris
2.5.1 and 2.6 Operating Systems, we don't currently support NetView for
Solaris.  Support for NetView on Solaris occurs in the NMS 9.0 release
coming in early '99.

  You could switch to HPOV or SDM and maintain support for Optivity NMS
8.1, however I assume that since you're posting to the NetView mailing list
that you intend to stick with NetView.
