If someone with global permissions on the map directory were
to invoke nv6000 with the option ' -map TEST1' , I believe that map
would be created on the fly. And I think there is an app-default
that might set the default map for a user to something other than
'default', and it might be set in their home directory rather than
in /usr/OV/app-defaults/OVw, which could perhaps also cause
a map to be created if it does not exist.

Well, this is certainly a mystery to me.

Do ovwls -G   from the command line and see what maps you have and who has
delete authority (probably root).
You can then start the GUI as root (or the owner) and repeat your delete
procedure, but you should make sure no one else has the TEST1 map open at the
time you do the delete.

I am running Netview 5.1.1 on Solaris 2.6

If I start Netview using any method (ovw, nv6000, netview, TIVOLI
desktop) I get a new map called "TEST1".  If I do a SHOW MAP from FILE
menu I see both DEFAULT and TEST1.  If I open the map called DEFAULT and
then delete TEST1 and then exit Netview and restart it without using any
"-map option" , I get the map called TEST1 again.   I beleive I created
a map called TEST1 some time ago, but have since done a coamplete
Netview install and it still comes back.   It must be in some user area
and by default creates this map, but I have no clue where it is or how
to get rid of it.

Any ideas?
