I have heard of others doing this sort of thing, but as it is not really a
supported operation, you are rather on your own here.  Whatever you build,
it will be a bit of a kludge to say the least.  It's really too bad that
TEC never saw fit to support multiple concurrent destinations in its
library code.

Since you mention the tecad adapter, I assume you are talking about NetView
for Windows, since TEC dropped support for their UNIX  tecad adapter with
3.7.1.   In that case you would probably be planning to fire your postemsg
commands from trap settings.  You could try doing it with rulesets, of
course, but you'd have to build the rule on UNIX and you'd have to use an
in-line action to fire the script (bat file?).  And one hopes that you will
be using some other scripting facility like PERL, or REXX, or TCL, as the
string substitution capabilities of BAT are weak.    In any case,  in the
CONF file for your adapter, you must remember to specify a unique
BufEvtPath.   If you don't, then it will default to \etc\Tivoli\tec, and so
will the postemsg, and this has been shown to cause problems as both
adapters will try to control the same cache files, and one of them will
hang.  We took an APAR to add BufEvtPath to the tecint.conf file in NetView
for UNIX for this very reason.

Good luck.

Hi list,

Is it possible to configure one NetView server to send events to two
different TEC servers based on network subnets, location or another
criteria ?

I was thinking about using the tecad_nv6k adapter for one and wpostemsg to
another or build some NetView rule to do this ... have anyone seen this
work before ?

Thanks in advance.
