    iguringvirtualization.html
    
    
    
    Section 13. and 14. are as follows;
    
    13.Edit the tivoli_eif.rules rules file, which was distributed
    with the probe, by uncommenting the lines that contain an
    include statement for the tivoli_eif_virtualization_pt1.rules
    and tivoli_eif_virtualization_pt2.rules files. For example:
    include "tivoli_eif_virtualization_pt1.rules"Also uncomment the
    commented-out include statement that embeds the itm_event.rules
    file.
    Re-read the rules file if the probe is currently running.
    
    14.Remove the default read-only permissions from your copy of
    the tivoli_eif_virtualization_pt1.rules and
    tivoli_eif_virtualization_pt2.rules files. Review the contents
    of this file, and edit or customize it as appropriate. In
    particular, edit the registertarget statements to specify the
    name of the ObjectServer to which you want to forward situation
    events.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    So that's saying to modify the issued tivoli_eif.rules and
    include the
    virtualization pt1 and pt2, so far so good.
    
    Then section 15 says to
    
    15. Edit the $NCHOME/omnibus/probes/arch/nco_p_tivoli_eif.props
    file as follows:
    Set the value of the RulesFile property to the path and name of
    the tivoli_eif_virtualization.rules file. Ensure that the
    RulesFile property is specified after the Name property.
    
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    There's also confusion where the itm_event.rules should be in
    relation to either pt1 and pt2 or plain
    tivoli_eif_virtualization.rules.
    
    Then whichever method is decided, must work.

Problem conclusion

  • The -Configuring event management of a virtual environment-
    topic has been updated as follows:
    
    1) The minimum required version of IBM Tivoli Monitoring is now
    V6.2.3, which includes the itm_event.rules file.
    
    2) The configuration procedure now describes installation of the
    IBM Tivoli Monitoring event synchronization component.
    
    3) The RulesFile property in the nco_p_tivoli_eif.props file
    should now be set to the location of the tivoli_eif.rules file,
    and not to the location of the tivoli_eif_virtualization.rules
    file as previously stated.
