It occurs to me also that you could configure the tecad_nv6k.err file to write out LOW level kernel errors to a trace file.  If there's a problem with resolving the hostname, that's where it would be logged.   There were specific trace entries created for that fix.

Well, the code was fixed so it should be in the Fixpack.

I suggest you open a problem to Support.

[nv-l] APAR PJ29416 for NV On Windows - tecad_nv6k.cds







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:
CLASS TEC_ITS_MYTRAP
SELECT
  1: ATTR(=,$ENTERPRISE) , VALUE(PREFIX, "1.3.6.1.4.1.1234" ) ;
  2: $SPECIFIC = 123 ;
  3: ATTR(=,"VB_1") ;
FETCH
  1: IPNAME($AGENT_ADDR);
MAP
  origin = $AGENT_ADDR ;
  msg = $V3 ;
  hostname = $F1 ;
  severity = MINOR;
  nvhostname = $ADAPTER_IP ; # Required for ALL TEC_ITS events
END

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?

Thanks,
Jane
