You will find this a whole lot easier to do if you get 5.1.3 and install that
instead of trying to play around with old code.
There were serious fixes to the web client in 5.1.2 and 5.1.3
I think that will fix your problem but if it doesn't you can call Support and
get some real help.  Not much they can do if you stay where you are though.

You didn't mention what map you had up on the server when you did this.  The web
client does not depend on a map called default, but rather on the one you have
open on the server at the time you connect.  You need that one up and open

Subject:  [NV-L] No Web Submaps

Running NetView 5.1.1 on AIX, and when
I access it with a web browser, everything
seems to work OK (events, diagnostics, mib
browsing), but I cannot get a display of the
submaps.  I just get a blank screen, and the
only button down the right side that is clickable
is HELP (which doesn't help in this case).

I ran /usr/OV/web/httpd/cgi-bin/Install and
chmod_web_ovw -a with no affect (that I could

A funny thing is that at the top of the blank
display is


Does this mean that it is trying to show the Root
submap as a default, or that it is trying to show
the map 'default', which does not exist on our system.
We have one map called 'EnterpriseApps', a la

# ovmapdump -l
MAP             PERMS  CREATION TIME              COMMENTS
EnterpriseApps   R/W   Tue Aug 22 14:03:41 2000

Any help would be appreciated, I can seem to find anything
in any of the NetView manuals about setting up the web

Oh, another thing:  The nvwebd process shows 'NOT RUNNING',
but there are a bunch of NetViewWebServer UNIX processes
running, and I can get a web response for almost everything.
Why does ovstatus say it is NOT RUNNING.  Can't ovstart it
manually either.  The 'ovsuf' entry look OK to me.

Thanks for any help,
