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?

Environment

Release : 9.x, 20.x

Component : UIM - INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGER

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.

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.
