Yes, it works on 4.2.1 and it works with NetView V4, so if you have that, NVSP
should still work fine even though V4 is out of support.

Ordering is usually done by your IBM account rep, not by the customer, which is
why you do not understand what the various pieces and codes mean.   You should
get your IBM account rep to explain the differences to you.  Anyone who has an
OS/390 has an account rep somewhere.

 I don't do that sort of thing but I believe that the differences merely
represent ways of paying for it, either a one-tine charge (OTC) or an initial
fee plus a monthly license charge (MLC) which is typical of mainframe products.
My view is that no matter which of these you order, you'll get he same code and
the same product.

PS: If you are serious about this product, then I hope you are good friends with
the VTAM system programmer on OS/390.  He has to define the AIX box as an
independent LU (he should have doc on how to do that but I believe there is a
sample configuration provided in the NVSP manuals) and he has to give you  (or
whoever does the AIX side) all the right parms in order for this to work.  And
don't forget you need to have SNA communications installed on the AIX box as
well.  I believe that is currently part of the AIX Communication Server package.

Hello All.

Does anyone know if Netview Service Point V1.2.2 is offically supported on
AIX 4.2.1 ?? Does anyone have this configuration working??

Also, I have been trying to order the product and I have gathered the
following info:

...the following are the options for the NetView Service Point, I think that
I only need one of these but I am not sure which:

5621-107 NetView Service Point Master  RISC
     3501 Workstation Master
     4090 OTC
     5873 8mm Tape
     9001 Asset Registration


5621-107 NetView Service Point Lic.
     4091 Workstation Feature OTC
     9001 Asset Registration

Does anyone know the difference between these two, more specifically, which
one do I need for Netview V5.1 in order to send traps to my Netview for
OS/390 ?? What is this whole "Master" thing ??

Any info appreciated.
