How does the TIPN Event adapter fit into the "tecad_nv6k" adapter? It
appears there is some duplication (e.g., NV6K_Warnings, etc...) between the
two adapters, and some differences (e.g., "NV6K_Netmon_Dump_Interface"
defined in the "tecad_nv6k" adapter but not defined in the TIPN event
adapter) between the two. Is the TIPN Event adapter just a subset of the
"tecad_nv6k" adapter? Will there be any overlap in installing both adapters
(if one is not a complete subset of the other) and how will NV handle such
an install? Thanks,

Subject: Re: Events to different TEC servers
No TEC adapter provided by any Tivoli product supports sending to more than
one TEC at a time. That is because TEC itself does not support it, and
they supply the library routines which all adapters currently use. They do
support the use of a backup server, but it only gets events when the
primary is unavailable.
You could make this work, however, because there are two independent TEC
adapters for NetView. One is the internal adapter which selects events to
send using a ruleset and sends then via the nvserverd daemon. The other is
the tecad_nv6k adapter which is provided by TEC. That adapter is a daemon
which uses a filter to select what to forward to TEC. The two are
completely independent of each other, so you could install both. Be warned
however that this a rather a lot of work and, as Joe Prokott already
pointed out, you'll have to figure out for yourself in great detail exactly
what to send to each adapter.

Subject: Events to different TEC servers
I foward events to TEC,
my environment is 3.6 TME server and
5.1 Netview .
My question is :
May I foward different events to two
different TECs ???
I have only a Netview server that is a manged node of TMR server1
but I have also a TMR server2 which machines send snmp events to the
How may I send snmp events for TMR1 to TMR1 TEC and snmp events for TMR2 to
TMR2 TEC ???
I have two TMRs due to two large numbers of managed nodes (about 400).
