OPS/MVS Event Management & Automation


One of our areas had an issue with an SSM resource that had a problem. But while fixing the issue SSM continually tried to restart the resource.  We don't want SSM to keep trying to restart the resource while they are working on it. What are some the options we have to take a resource out of SSM control, temporarily, until the problem is fixed and then have SSM go back to controlling/monitoring the resource.   


Release : 14.0

Component : OPS/MVS


Setting an SSM resource to PASSIVE mode via the OPSVIEW =4.11.2 panel will remove the resource from SSM control/interference during troubleshooting or maintenance procedures. When troubleshooting or maintenance is complete, the resource can again be set back to ACTIVE mode via the =4.11.2 panel and SSM control will resume.

1. Go to option =4.11.2 in OPSVIEW:


2. As an example, to set the SYSVIEW processing mode to Passive, tab over to the "Res" column for the SYSVIEW entry and change "A" (active) to "P" (passive) and press Enter. The processing mode will be set to PASSIVE:


Now SYSVIEW can be stopped and started at will without SSM performing any automated control of the resource.

To place SYSVIEW back under SSM control, simply repeat steps 1 and 2, but this time set "P" back to "A" under the "Res" column and press Enter. SYSVIEW will again be placed under SSM control as before:
