IV20914: SHOW CONNECTIVITY TOOL DOES NOT SHOW VLAN/VPN AS DOES THE NETWOR K VIEW DISPLAY

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The online documentation states that the Show Connectivity Tool
    should by default show all connections that match the query:
    select * from ncim.enumerations where enumGroup='ifType';
    However, when there are 226 types of interfaces showing in
    that query, only a few are showing up with the Show
    Connectivity Tool.
    The vlan and vpn connections do show in the Network View but
    not in the Show Connectivity Tool.

Problem conclusion

  • This issue at a discovery/model level by creating one layer 2
    link to represent the physical connection, while storing the
    VLAN trunk logical connections as a new topology type (VLAN
    toplogy) which the UI does not display - PERFORMANCE
    IMPROVEMENTS TO THE CREATETRUNKCONNECTIONS STITCHER
    (APAR=IV25446).
