8. Run the following queries from nco_sql and collect outputs:

select UserName, UserID from security.users
select Name,UID,Type from master.names
select GroupName,GroupID from security.groups
select GroupID,UserID from security.group_members order by GroupID,UserID
SELECT UserName,UserID FROM security.users WHERE UserID IN (SELECT UserID FROM security.group_members WHERE GroupID IN (SELECT GroupID FROM security.groups WHERE GroupName = 'vmmusers'))
select UID, HasRestriction, Restrict1, Restrict2, Restrict3, Restrict4, AllowISQL from master.profiles
select * from catalog.connections
select TriggerName, GroupName, TriggerKind, IsEnabled, TriggerPriority from catalog.triggers where TriggerName='webtop_compatibility'

9. Check if LDAP/VMM users who are assigned ncw_admin/ncw_user role are listed in the User Preferences page (TIP > Settings > User Preferences for Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI)

- Zip of TIPHOME/profiles/TIPProfile/config/cells/TIPCell/commonauthz/policy/href_c_TIPCell/isc/OMNIbusWebGUI.war

- Timestamp when TIP is restarted from step 6
