To use the internal TEC adapter, you must configure TEC forwarding from
SMIT or the Framework (or now serversetup) to do that.  This creates a file
called /usr/OV/conf/tecint.conf which contains the name of the TEC server
and the ruleset you are using to do the forwarding.  When you configure the
event with Trap Customization you are only controlling the formatting.
That does not cause the event to be sent.   If there is a tecint.conf file
and nvserverd is restarted he will attempt to contact the TEC server and
send events.  If he is unsuccessful, then the events will be cached in a
file called /etc/Tivoli/tec/cache until contact with the TEC sever is made.
nvserverd will try to establish contact for every event he receives which
is supposed to be forwarded.  Once contact is made the entire cache file
will be sent, and thereafter each new event.

There is a checklist of things to do to forward events to TEC in Chapter 8
of the Installation and Configuration Guide.  If your TEC server is on NT
rather than UNIX then you have to edit the tecint.conf file and add more
information to it.  See the man page on tecint.conf for more details.

Subject:  [NV-L] Forwarding events from Netview to TEC

Hello  All!!!

I?m trying to forward events from Netview to TEC, but I don?t receive
in the TEC console, How can I check if Netview is forwarding the events to

I'm running Netview 6.0 over AIX 4.3.3 and TEC 3.6.2 over NT 4.0

To send events I'm doing the following procedure:

in Netview I select Options -> Event Config -> Trap Customization: SNMP

then I select the event to be forwarded to TEC and in the Modify Event
I config to forward event to T/EC.

In T/EC I have configured the Event Class for selected event. When I run
wtdumper I don?t see any event comming from T/EC. I have only configured
nvserverd, I don?t know if it?s all I need to forward the events.

Do I have to configure the Netview Adapter???

Thanks. Saludos.
