Known GUI IF0001 minor issues:

  • Mismatch between ITNM GUI version displayed at Welcome Page and Network View splash page.
    The welcome page displays the major build level for ITNM 3.9 FP3 (i.e. 97). the network view banner page displays the build level for the binaries changed in Interim Fix (i.e. 101).
  • Network views configured with Line Status = 'Lines with Icons' does not show link status with icon
    If a network view is configured with Line Status = 'Lines with Icons'and the property status.netview.linestyle is set to 'none' in, the link will not show any icons or status.
    The workaround is to set the property status.netview.linestyle to simple.
  • Status tree mismatch where an alarm is raised on a domain, but the alarm is not related to a particular device.
    For an alerts view (e.g. Unacknowledged Alerts - Major) the tree view may display a severity icon, while no nodes are displayed in the network view itself.
    This occurs when a domain alarm that is not connected to a device is raised. An example of such would be the ITNM Disco alert "The finder PingFinder has gone into state NOT RUNNING"
