Watch out when you go from NetView 7.1.3 -> 4. There are a bunch of snmpCollect entries that get activated by default and you could suddenly end up with much more data polling than you expect, along with a huge snmpCollect database.
Other gotcha is that there is an extra AIX pre-req needed for NetView
7.1.x when you go to AIX 5.x - you need X11.compat (X11R5) package
installed.
Also with NV 7.1.4 make sure that ulimit -n is NOT unlimited - set to 32767.

Problems if you want to install MLMs on AIX 5.x - see recent nv-l append (easy fix).
Cheers,

Group,

I am currently running NetView 7.1.3 on AIX 4.3.3. I want to do the
following:

1. Update the OS from AIC 4.3.3 to AIX 5.2
2. Update NetView from 7.1.3 to 7.1.4
3. Apply 7.1.4 SP1

Have any of you experienced any gotchas during these steps? I know that the
SNMP agent on AIX 5.2 is SNMPv3 by default. I am assuming that I will need
to convert the SNMP agent back to V1 with the snmpv3_ssw -1 command.

Is this order the best way to do it or would another order of the steps be
better. I am going to do this in a phased approach to make sure that none of
process break along the way.

Thank you,

Scott Bursik
