Hi all!

I've been asking a lot of questions to this forum, but it have provided me with 
fast and accurate responses on subjects we've not been able to solve using the 
usual meens (manuals, FAQ's etc). So I hope you'll bear with me when I try yet 

We have noticed that the client maps are not updated when the maps on the 
has been changed. To see the changes the client map has to be closed and 
re-opened. This is a serious drawback, since we are going to install a client 
another location and they must be able to see the changes we (or the daemons) 
are making without the need for us to call them each and every time.

The clients are all installed using NFS-mounted maps, so they all use the same 
source. Is it possible from the server side to initiate a map refresh on all 
clients ?

The clients are not able to change the default map. When opening a map from the 
menu in NetView, clicking on the button labeled 'Set user default' yields the 
result : "Unable to set user default map. Unable to open the database".

Our only solution this far is - on the server - to delete the original map 
'default' and then rename our main map to 'default'. But there must be another 
way ?

The mount is r/w, and the permissions on the /usr/OV/servers/<server>/databases 
directory and files are all rw for all.

The server and clients are all running NetView 5.1.1 on Solaris 2.6 or 7.

Hope some of yoy may guide me in the right direction for these ones! Please ask 
if more info is needed!
