Error description

  • ===========
    'Tape_Drives.Address' attribute is converted from Hexadecimal to
    Decimal when the event is sent to from HUB TEMS to event server
    (TEC or Omnibus)
    Tape Drive Address is correctly shown as HEX in TEP but when it
    is converted to $Tape_Drives.Address$ before sending  to
    event server, the same Address is shown as DEC.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The "TAPE_DRIVES.ADDRESS" attribute is converted from
    hexadecimal to decimal when passed to IBM Tivoli
    NetCool/OMNIbus.  The actual problem is a display issue. Certain
    attributes are specified to be displayed as hexadecimal and this
    is not happening. All values are stored internally as fixed
    point integers and must be correctly displayed when presented to
    the end user.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed to correctly display hexadecimal
    attributes.
    
    The fix for this APAR is contained in the following maintenance
    packages:
    
      | fix pack | 6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0004
      | fix pack | 6.3.0-TIV-ITM-FP0001
