Is this AIX or Solaris??  You don't have to use a separate filesystem unless
you wish to.

I can't think of a trivial way of doing this. Backup everything first!!   I
guess you could create a new temporary filesystem (or use an existing
filesystem if it has space) and recursive copy everything from /usr/OV into
it.  Then delete everything under /usr/OV (in fact, do a recursive mv rather
than copy & delete).  Then create your new filesystem to mount on /usr/OV and
recursive mv everything back again.  Make sure you preserve ownerships and
permissions with your moves.

Otherwise, if you have lots of NetView customisation, do a full NetView backup
which will create a backup directory /usr/OV.back.vxry (where x and y are your
current version and release).  Deinstall NetView using uninstalnv or the
maintain menu from Serversetup / Tivoli Desktop if you have a Framework
install.  This should empty /usr/OV.  Create and mount your new filesystem.
Then reinstall but do a server-update install - even though you don't have any
NetView code still installed, it lays down the new code and then automatically
applies all your backed up configurations./
