402 Event Management and Best Practices
Suggested NetView EUI configuration
In most cases, you access the NetView EUI via a normal workstation. In this
case, most administrators prefer to have the main NetView window, the topology,
displayed. You should minimize the tools and navigation window. You should also
disconnect the event console to have it independent from the main window. To
achieve this, you need to modify the appropriate configuration files after you
make backup copies of the files:
1. Open /usr/OV/app-defaults/OVW with your editor. In this file, search for the
string CopyRightWindow and change its attribute to
False.
2. In the same file, search for strings toolShellIconify and
navTreeShellIconify. Set both attributes to
True.
3. In the file, locate the strings shellwidth and shellHeight. The assigned
number are the dimensions of the NetView main window. Adjust them to your
needs.
Example A-1 shows the changes that we made for the NetView layout in our lab
environment. This finishes the EUI modification.
