1)  NV NT does have a web-interface.  In V6.0 it comes with its own.
    Its quite automatic.  In V5.x you used IIS.
2)  Paging built-in.  Yes, I believe its the same as AIX.
3)  Scripting language.  I use Perl.  If you have UNIX-types who might
    have to use this... I'd also suggest MKS toolkit (a Unix toolkit
    for NT).  Not sure I'd survive without MKS.

    MKS Shell = sh.exe   I don't know if it supports ksh.

    Check URL for details: http://www.mks.com/press/releases/981109a.htm

4)  NetView NT will use the JET (aka Access) DB unless you have SQL
    installed.  JET is included with NT (you don't have to buy Access).

Subject: [NV-L] NetView: AIX vs. NT

Hello All.

We are considering purchasing NetView for NT for on of our smaller sites. We

already have NetView for AIX.

I was wondering if someone could clarify some of the differences between the

two, specifically:

1. Does NetView for NT also have a Web Interface? If so, does it use the 
Apache Web server like AIX does?

2. Does NetView for NT have a built-in paging ability, like NetView for AIX 

3. What is the scripting language of choice for NT, i.e. I use Korn Shell 
scripting with AIX. Would it be Pearl?

4. Does a SQL database come with NetView for NT? Nothing comes with AIX.

Any info appreciated.


Gord Michaels.
