Re: [nv-l] tec integration on UNIX versus NT
There is no simple way to do this. It is a completely manual migration
TEC used to ship an NV6000 adapter for AIX which was identical to the one
we shipped on NT, until we added the smartset stuff. Then they decided
that they didn't have to support their adapter on AIX since NetView had
an internal one and discontinued it. They never had one for Solaris nor
So I am afraid you will have to transfer your slot mappings and such to
trapd.conf using xnmtrap and then use a ruleset (you can start with
forwradall.rs) to send everything to TEC. Once you get comfortable with
rulesets you can pare down what you send to TEC. That is the basic
Some folks prefer to send all their events using wpostemsg in a script,
called as an action, either right from the trap definition, so that
ovactiond sends it, or in a ruleset, so that correlation and filtering is
done first. You'll have to decide which route is best for you.

Subject: [nv-l] tec integration on UNIX versus NT
we are planning to migrate our Netview system from NT to UNIX.
However, we have done many customizations on the tecad_nv6k.* files on NT
to accomodate different vendors equipments.
It seems that the UNIX version uses another mechanism to integrate with
TEC (via the rulesets).
What is the best way to transfer between the 2 TEC forwarding mechanisms?
