Thank you for your reply Jane. 

I am running NV on Solaris 8. And the fresh install did not create an icon
for me in the desktop. I got the make icon script and had a go, but the
script was complaining about Netview is not a managed resource. 

I have done upgrade from 5.x to 6.02 before and the database setup options
in serversetup remains. 

So I guess I might try to re-apply the database patch or just copy the
dbconf.dat across and have a look. 

Thanks again,

I have a feeling that they missed one of the database setup options off the
serversetup menus.  If you are on AIX, you will find the option you are
looking for from smit -> nv6000 and then down the Configure menu.
Alternatively, this option is available from the NetViewServer icon on your
TIVOLI Desktop.

I would suggest, if you can, applying the NV 6.0.2 maintenance as it has
some database patches - particularly I think it had a Y2K patch required for

Other than that, I think you should be OK.  The missing menu in serversetup
isn't fixed with 6.0.2.
