Hi all,

Environment: NetView/AIX v5.1.1 on AIX v4.2.1

Has anyone else suffered a problem with nvsecd when they have created/added
the smMlm* and smSia* SRFs to a profile in nvsec_admin?
I have found today that if I add these SRFs to a profile nvsecd cores when a
user tries to login using that profile (appears to be similar to IX78362
which was supposed to be fixed in v51.1.1). Is this a known problem?

I am also curious as to the rationale behind creating so many arf files for
the smMlm* and smSia* functions. The number of files to be converted to SRFs
before they can be utilised in nvsec_admin is horrendous.

Lastly, I found that after regenerating the ovw srf it didn't contain an
entry to authorise the use of ovw_binary (unlike the previous version) so
that the user access fails. I manually edited the srf and added an
ovw_binary entry, based on the v4 srf, and the user can now access NetView.
Has anyone else seen this?

Thanks for any assistance
