I'm running AIX 4.2 with NV5.0 and have serious problems with the daemons.
I have some devices that will at times flood Netview with traps - far too
many for it to handle, and some of the daemons will eventually stop - trapd,
netmon, ovtopmd.  I understand this, per documentation in the Tivoli
knowledge base, and have even attempted to increase the event queue, to no

My real problem is that, once this flurry is over, I cannot get ovtopmd to
restart shy of a reboot. I get console messages:
"Fatal Topology Error: Unable to connect to ovtopmd
Reason: Cannot connect to server: sys 2: A file or directory in the path
name does not exist."
"Fatal Topology Error: Unabale to connect to trapd
Reason: Topology OK -- no error"

Anyone out there seen such a problem or have any suggestions?
