NIMSOFT PROBES DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)

Issue/Introduction

When deploying probe packages in IM (configuration files and templates: .cfg and .cfx) as described in KB34027 the TOT (time over threshold) rules dare not deployed to the target robots. Why?

Cause

ToT settings are not kept in the probe cfg files. Instead, it is kept on the primary server in this file:
nimsoft/probes/service/nas/alarm_enrichment/alarm_enrichment.cfg

So, this prevents us from using a configuration superpackage to update a group of devices.

Environment

Release : 9.x, 20.x

Component : UIM - INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGER

Resolution

It is only possible to individually set the ToT thresholds via the probe utility, but ban only be done one device at a time.

The only supported way to set alarms that include ToT for group devices is through:

- the MCS

and Operator Console.

It has never been an option in IM.
