The point of my note was that there is no simple way to do this since TEC
does not support one adapter sending to two separate servers at the same
time. Basically, then you have to create your own alternate adapter. One
way would be like this.
You can have some events sent to one TEC server using a TEC ruleset as
And then you can have another ruleset running out of ESE.automation which
has an action node that calls a postemsg script you write to send to the
other TEC server.

Please respond to
Sorry about the adapter thing, I´ve expressed myself wrong ... this is a
AIX NV box and I need it to send events to two different TEC Servers based
on some criteria I choose.
Do u think I can make this work using NV rulesets ?
Any help is appreciated.
