Customer is not able to synchronize the monitors in their APM CE (CEM)/TIM installation. In the logs are these messages:
hub: ConfigFile: reading configuration file /opt/CA/APM/tim/config/domainconfig.xml
**ERROR: hub: ConfigFile: data error in /opt/CA/APM/tim/config/domainconfig.xml: invalid value "1" for attribute "name_type" in <ParameterDef>
**ERROR: hub: ConfigFile: Data error: invalid value "1" for attribute "name_type" in <ParameterDef>
hub: WebServer: cmd=POST url=/tess/setdomainconfig status=500 message=Error
The customer had made changes to a Business Transaction and had set name_type=3 and OP =1. These parameters should not mix/match regular expressions and wildcard matching values. They should have the same values for regular expressions/wildcard matching. Here are the possible values for these two fields:
name_type attribute: Optional, default is 0 (literal value); possible values:
0: name attribute is a literal value
1: name attribute may contain a single "*" character, which matches any
3: name attribute is a regular expression
1: (MATCH_SIMPLE_PATTERN) The value attribute represents a
pattern which must match the observed data. The pattern may
contain a single "*" character, which matches any substring.
2: (DOES_NOT_EXIST) The observed data must not contain a
parameter named by the name attribute. In this case the value
attribute must not be supplied.
3: (MATCH_REGULAR_EXPRESSION) The value attribute represents a
Perl-compatible regular expression which must match the observed data.
See http://www.pcre.org/ for details of the regular expression syntax.
Found in TIM and APM running 10.5. But this may occur in any supported APM release.
In this case, the customer backed out the changes in the Business Transaction. This corrected the problem.
