You mean that from the GUI, Administer -> Security Administration is greyed out?
This is normal if you have not turned security on, and it sounds like you
haven't.  To do that you run nvsec_admin outside the GUI, from the command line,
and when the window comes up, select Options -> Global Settings which will allow
you to turn it on.  But I wouldn't do that if you haven't read about security in
the Admin Guide.  You want to make sure you have set up a good profile first.
There's a whole chapter on it in V5 -- sorry I don't have a V4 to look at since
it is out of support -- but I thought there was info on that there too.

I have Netview v4/AIX v4.2.1 and even when logged in as root, I'm
unable to access the Security Admin menu.  All demons are running.
I've never done *anything* with security in the past, so I don't have
a clue what I might have screwed up.

Any clues?
