Hi.  We are running Netview 6.0.2 on AIX 4.3.3 and send events to TEC to page.

Currently, the TEC is setup with a "duplicate detector", so multiple events 
from the same host only page on the first event, and just increment a counter 
for the others.  This causes us issues because routers, for instance, can send 
a lot of events about differently things (different interfaces, Frame-Relay 
DLCI status changes for different sites, etc.).

So, I raised this as an issue with our internal TEC support team, and they 
would like me to pursue concatenating onto the hostname, some other string to 
make the hostname in TEC unique".

For example:

Instead of:

hostname=[router1] interface=[eth0]
hostname=[router1] interface=[eth1]

We would send:

hostname=[router1-eth0] interface=[eth0]
hostname=[router1-eth1] interface=[eth1]

It appears to me that "$A", in Netview is fixed and I cannot modify it in this 

Can anybody confirm this, or otherwise help me?
