Thanks for the response Leslie.
So, when I change the permissions to 644, then is it true to say that I must
be logged in as root to open the map as readWrite? I mean, presently, I log
in as another user, not root,(in AIX) and then as a SrAdmin user in Netview.
So, if I do this after changing the permissions to 644, I will not be able
to open the readWrite map, correct?
Also, I do not have to close all the default maps before I do this?
