There was a problem with NetView 7.1.4 for Windows when configuring the
tecad_nv6k.cds file, whereby you are supposed to be able to use the
IPNAME function but it didn't work. This was logged as APAR PJ29416
and is documented as being included in NetView 7.1.4 Fixpack 1.
I haven just applied the Fixpack and I'm seeing exactly the same thing
at my TEC - the hostname slot is showing as
hostname ='' (that is 2 single quotes)
My tecad_nv6k.cds file has:
1: ATTR(=,$ENTERPRISE) , VALUE(PREFIX, "220.127.116.11.4.1.1234" ) ;
2: $SPECIFIC = 123 ;
3: ATTR(=,"VB_1") ;
origin = $AGENT_ADDR ;
msg = $V3 ;
hostname = $F1 ;
severity = MINOR;
nvhostname = $ADAPTER_IP ; # Required for ALL TEC_ITS events
The AGENT_ADDR variable is fine because I see that correctly at TEC in
the origin slot.
Anyone else tried this with Fixpack1?
Anyone spot something stupid in my CDS file?
