Thank you for your reply Jane.
I am running NV on Solaris 8. And the fresh install did not create an icon

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.

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