I unfortunately don't have access to
server at the customer site. So your sample smartset
rule really helped.
Thanks for your help.

The Windows smartset editor is not as robust as
the one on UNIX. The designer who built it did not allow for all the
permutations you might want. Since
you have UNIX available, I suggest that you use it to your advantage. For
your first problem I suggest that you
(1) create your smartset on UNIX,
(2) use nvUtil to display it's definition ( nvUtil g
(3) echo that to a file and ftp that file to your Windows
(4) modify that file into a bat file that contains a
smartsetutil add command (smartsetutil a <name> <desc>
<rule>) to create your smartset on Windows.
It may sound strange but I have done this myself . The
syntax of these commands can be had just by typing them in on the command line
have access to UNIX? Then your problem is much harder. But here's
an example which may help. I had a smartset which contained all my DB2
servers. I wanted one which has just those in subnet 126.96.36.199. I
put this command in a bat file:
a DB2_Servers_in_subnet10 "DB2 Servers in 188.8.131.52.subnet"
"((IN_SUBNET 184.108.40.206) && (IN_COLLECTION
your second problem I suggest that you not look for TMA=false but !(TMA=true).
In other words, create a smartset on UNIX for all object that are not
members of your TMA=true smartset. Then follow the above procedure
to transfer that definition to Windows. If you cannot do it on UNIX then
use something similar to the example above and put a bang (!) in front of the
(IN_COLLECTION . . .) operand.

Subject: [nv-l] Smartset on
NetView for Windows question
I have a few questions about smartsets that I am
trying to create on Netview 7.1.3+fixpack1 on Windows 2000.
Firstly, I am trying to create a smartset with all
devices that are on a certain subnet. I know I have achieved this on Netview
for AIX. However, I can't seem to find a network option in the find screen
under simple, there is only a Network name option under ip properties( I have a
work around by manually selecting all the devices from the network that I am
interested in and creating a collection). Has anyone done this on NV NT?
Secondly, I am running nvsniffer against the smartset
created above to flag all machines that are running the Tivoli management
agent( isTMA on port 9495). Once nvsniffer is complete I update the logic
in my smartset to only display all devices that have the isTMA set to true. I
would also like to create a second smartset with all machines that don't have
TMA loaded. How do I get it to display the devices that don't have the field
isTMA. I can't do a isTMA=false since the devices that don't have TMA loaded
don't have this field set yet?
Please take note of the new
address and contact details.
