Hi John,
I'm not aware of any out-of-the-box integration for Ack'ing in NetView and getting automatic ACKs in TEC. The simple (but I suspect WRONG answer) is to forward NetView ACK TRAPs to TEC. I think you will find these are unconfigured by default in both trapd.conf and in TEC_ITS.rls. The reason I suspect it is wrong (or at least, not quite right!) is that this is what TEC sends to NetView in the Synchronization rules in netview.rls - you would then end up forwarding the ACK TRAP back to TEC again........ Perhaps with an extra rule in TEC that filters this ACK TRAP out if it is a recent status change??? You'd then need a simple TEC rule that changed the status of all recent events from the same node / interface, to ACK.
Just thinking off the top of my head....... anyone else?

Does anyone have the Netview and TEC integration working where you can
acknowlege devices within netview and have them update the TEC console with
the acknowledgement?  I have it working where we can acknowledge an event
from the TEC and it will update the netview maps, but not both ways.
