This is John Arnesen with NetView level 2 support and this months blog entry.
If you are planning on installing NetView v6r1, it is important to note that the install requires a IPL to pick up SSI changes.
Have a look at this section for IEFSSNxx in the NetView Installation: Getting Started manual:
Note usage note number 2 where is states a restart of MVS is required:
2. Any subsystem name that you define for the NetView system can be used only for the NetView system. If you choose a subsystem name that was previously used, restart MVS before using the subsystem name. If the NetView system is started as a job rather than as a task, the job name must have the same first four characters as the subsystem interface and startup procedure.
Here is some information on what is happening with the SSI in v6r1
Please note it is NOT possible to use SETSSI to make this update - it will not work. You must IPL to pick up the changes....
You cannot circumvent having to IPL.
