Sorry, I did not provide more information as the problem was exactly the
same as one previously reported. We have found the cause of the problem
ourselves. The person who installed NetView was doing it for the first time
and he missed the steps for setting up the NetView server as a managed
resource. I had assumed that you would not be able to proceed with the
NetView installation without doing this but it turns out that you can with
just the one error reported. I hope this information is useful for others.
Sorry for any time wasted.
