Re: How can I get status of a location?
Not efficient but easy to do with a few line commands. First, however
you need to get a copy of GREP which will run in your environment. If
it's NT you can cadge the open source one from the Tivoli Framework
Managed Node for NT or from one of the GNU repositories around the
country (one is at UNC and used to be SUNSITE, then METALAB and is now
http://www.ibiblio.org/ ). You also have to have a NetView Console open
on the system where you run these commands.
First find out the object ID of the location container: Here's what I
get for the container 7206B on my map (it's NT but should work the same
for Unix). The value you want is "311".
C:\DOSUTIL>ovobjprint -s 7206B
OBJECTID SELECTION NAME
FIELD ID FIELD NAME FIELD VALUE
10 Selection Name "7206B"
14 OVW Maps Exists 1
15 OVW Maps Managed 1
110 isLocation TRUE
111 isNetwork FALSE
112 isInternet FALSE
114 isSegment FALSE
115 isBusSegment FALSE
116 isStarSegment FALSE
117 isTokenRingSegment FALSE
118 isFDDIRingSegment FALSE
153 isIP FALSE
Then you issue the following command and parse the output.
C:\DOSUTIL>ovmapdump | grep Object | grep " 311 "
Object 311 Unknown Unreachable
In this case the status you are seeking is "Unreachable". (That happens
when you run NetView without a network connection.) A little parsing
using common tools (bash and awk from the Tivoli Managed Node for NT
tools work on this) and you're home free. For the e-mail use sendmail
for Unix or nvmail for NT.
