RE: TMF woes
I do not have the exact experience like you requested. But here is what
other part of Framework/Netview installation get to me.
Do you have software support contract with Tivoi\li ? I suggest to call
them and get help. I had the opprotunity to rename the hostname of my
netview 6.0 installation and, boy, the Framework rework is amazing and I
give up on it.
My plan is to re-install the whole thing. Because I was told it is not a
piece of cake to rename the hosname of Framework. The Netview is not so bad
though. Rename IP address is much simpler.
