An ECO kit exists for POLYCENTER Manager on NetView for Digital UNIX
V4.1B on Digital UNIX V3.2 through V4.0.  This kit addresses the 
following problems: 

  o  c_arf2srf command would core

     The c_arf2srf command would core dump whenever used.

  o  Events window would core when clearing selected events from a

     The Events window (nvevents) would core when the menu item
     "Edit->Clear Selected->From This Workspace" was selected. 

  o  nvsecd would core when "Group list" popup was selected from nvauth

     The nvsecd daemon would core when the "Group list" popup was
     selected from the nvauth application 

  o  Acknowledge propagation not working for open topology

     When you acknowledged one interface for a node, the node would turn
     green (even though there were other red interfaces for the node
     which had not been acknowledged). 

  o  EUI would core when doing "refresh" after double-clicking on
     childless icon 

     The EUI would core when doing a "File->Refresh Map" on a read-only
     map after double-clicking on an icon with no children. 

  o  Automatic action for traps would sometimes not work

     Under certain circumstances, an automatic action for a trap would
     not be invoked and the error message which was displayed showed
     garbage characters at the end of the action command. 

  o  In the Events Window, "Suppress Traps From Unmanaged Nodes" would
     not work 

     In the Events Window, "Options->Suppress Traps From Unmanaged Nodes" 
     would not work correctly, traps from unmanaged nodes were still 
     appearing in the Events window.

  o  Trap configuration updates not occurring immediately

     After modifying a trap using the "Options->Event Configuration:
     Trap Customization: SNMP..." window, the modification would not
     take effect until the daemons were stopped and restarted. 

     NOTE:  This problem only occurred on Digital UNIX V4.0.

  o  Cores fixed in nvserverd and nvlockd daemons

     Under certain circumstances, the nvserverd and nvlockd daemons
     would core. 


The installation will only succeed if V4.1B of POLYCENTER Manager on
Netview is already installed.  To verify that POLYCENTER Manager on
NetView V4.1B is installed type: 

   # setld -i | grep PNV | grep installed

To un-tar this ECO kit, type the following commands:

   #cd [directory where you want to store the kit]
   #tar xvf pnveco01412.tar

Install this kit with the setld utility by logging into the
root account, and typing the following at the system prompt:

   #setld -l [directory in which you un-tared the kit]

The ECO kit checks to ensure that a valid license is installed before
proceeding.  If one is not found, the installation aborts.
