Eric,
No, there is no way to change the default installation directory.
That being said, you can create a softlink from where-ever you want
to /usr/OV and that will be fine. In other words if you have a

/servername/usr/OV directory simply run the following command:

ln -sf /servername/usr/OV /usr/OV

before the installation and it will install into that directory.

James,
So, are you saying that there is no option to install to something like, /servername//usr/OV/ ? Thanks,
Eric

You are confused about having root authority and installing in the root directory. NetView installs in /usr/OV/ (\usr\ov on Windows), with a few files in /etc/, and you must have root authority to do it.

Does Netview have to be installed at the root? I have heard that Netview has problems when not installed at the root. However, I have been unable to find docs to indicate this. Those here responsible for the server and "standard" file system setup, are requesting that I install netview in a subdirectory of the root. Any thoughts on this?
Regards,
Eric
