Each operator can have as many event windows started automatically as he or
she wishes.
(1) Open all the event windows you want started automatically.
(2) In the initial window, pull down Options and click "Save Environment"
(3) In the initial window, pull down File --> Exit
(4) in the user's home directory copy /usr/OV/app-defaults/Nvevents
(5) change the permissions on Nvevents to allow you to write to it
(6) edit Nvevents  and change
     nvevents.LoadEnvOnInit : False
     nvevents.LoadEnvOnInit : True
Be careful that you actually remove one letter from "False" when you change
it to "True" because this is an X default file and X will not recognize
"True " (the word "True" followed by a space) and equal to "True".

When the user restarts the events window all his previous windows will be

Subject:  [NV-L] Multiple nvevents windows upon startup


AIX 4.3.3
Netview 5.1.3

Currently we have an additional dynamic nvevents window which contains only
major and critical events.  This workpace is created by the operator after
startup.  I would like to know how to create this window via command line
arguements, or in a script. etc.  I did read the man page which includes
some code snipits on how to create a static workspace by registering an
application with OVw, via nveventsAPI.  I have not fully researched this
avenue yet, I was hoping to find a quicker solution else-here.

What are my options?

Thanks in advance,
