There is an option on the ovw command that makes copies. See the man page.

Is there any way to create map copies without having to start the NetView
open that map to be copied, and do a "File -> Save As" ?
Right now, a customer of us is doing the following to create map copies :
- detects which is the latest map
- copy the map files the following way :
     cp -R /usr/OV/databases/openview/mapdb/map_to_copy/current/*

Apparently this is working, i.e. whenever we open the GUI with the "new"
map, we see the content of the "map_to_copy" map.
But what about consistency of all related files (like mapinfo.pag and
mapinfo.dir) ?
Is this operation supported by Tivoli support ? If not, what is the
one ?

Any info welcomed !
