Hi David,
One of the Inventory Query (PC_BIOS_QUERY) has a column User_name that from what I see in my env. is the name of the user using that computer. So I'm thinking that if I install Inventory server on Netview server (that is MN), I can run from Netview wrimsql commands to return information from database.
But how can I add a netview menu and from there to run a command which pick up the name of the selected box and then run Tivoli command line inventory queries?? Can you help with this?
many thanks,
Raluca Baciu

Tivoli Inventory does not query the user-name out of the box.
My Inventory expert tells me that you would have to create a custom MIF file for that.  My suggestion would be to write a script that would query LDAP for user information. Any script that you create could be launched by NetView.

Hi list,

I see there'a product called NIMCM for this integration. But from what I
read it only allows to export network information in Inventory database.
I'm looking for a solution where I can right-click an object in a map and
can made an Inventory query (or at least to see the user assoc. with that
computer, as naming convention does not suggest where or who's computer

do you know something about this?

thanks, raluca
