Anyone planning to "port" a ruleset from UNIX to NT needs to be aware of the
restrictions outlined in this APAR (PJ27113) which just closed.

PJ27113:
PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
Many ruleset nodes available in the ruleset editor in NetView
for UNIX have no counterpart function in the code in NetView
for  Windows NT.    A  documentation update will appear in
the Release Notes for Netview for Windows NT, Version 5.1.4 and
6.0.1,  which indicates that these ruleset nodes are not
 supported:
- Action Node
- Block Node

- Override Status and Severity Node
- Pager Node
- Resolve Node
- Setstate Node
Also it should be noted that an in-line action, while supported,
cannot launch a Windows console applicatoin, because
background processes, like the correlation daemon, do not have
access to the user console (GUI).
The sample rulesets provided in the NT version should be used as
a guide to the sorts of ruleset functions available in NetView
for Windows NT at this time.

Be careful migrating an AIX generated ruleset to NT.  I have been fighting
with the rulesets in NetView NT v6 for the last couple of months.

Not all of the "node" types are available in NT (meaning they don't work).
i.e. Action, Database Query, etc.  Basically anything that uses the action
daemon which does not exist in NetView for NT.

As for editing, I tried and gave up after a day or two and installed NetView
for Unix on an old Sun Sparc just to use for the ruleset editor.  I would
suggest you find
any kind of Unix box which you can borrow to load it on just for the editor.
Turn off all of the daemon processing and management.
