Possible?  Probably.

Supported? No.  Our solution will always be install on the target system.

Practical? No.  Because there are other filesystems affected by NetView installation.  /etc/services is but one example.

The following is untested when regressing, that would be going from 7.1.3 FixPack n  to  7.1.3 base, but I think it should work.

Run a backup for migration on your current system using serversetup (nvsetup).
Tar the resulting /usr/OV.back.v7r1 filesystem and move it over to the target system.
Untar it on the target system.
Remove the file /usr/OV.back/v7r1/conf/ovors
Perform an upgrade install.
Install any fix packs and i-fixes  you had on source system.

[nv-l] nvsecd error

RH 7.2 / NV 7.1.3

We are currently replacing our hardware and I'm attempting to take a tar
file of all NetView files from the original hardware and drop it onto the
new hardware (which also has a different IP address).  Is this possible to
do without having to run the NV install disk on the new box?

After dropping the tarball on the new box, I've wiped out the topology
(nv6000_smit clear_topology_db_all) and ran /usr/OV/service/reset_ci.
Everything seems to run fine until I try to turn on security, after which I
cannot start the OV daemons anymore because nvsecd will not start.  It's
giving the error:

nvsecd:  The server key could not be installed.

Is what I'm attempting to do possible?
