Why not just change the rule over in TEC to accept either
"un031e00.service.domain.de" or  just   "un031e00" ?
That's by far the simpleset alternative.

The hostname slot in NetView is not user-configurable.  It is added by
nvserverd, and it will be fully-qualified if that can be determined.  You
cannot influence it in a ruleset.

Hi folks,

I have a  very special problem, i guess.

Most administrators of servers send a "Maintenance Mode" to the TEC for the
reason, that all Events for this Node get ignored for a while.
They send a wpostemsg with the simple Hostname like "un031e00".

The NetView-Server sends a "Node Down" Event with a full qualified Name
like "un031e00.service.domain.de"
Now the "two Names" are not identic so the Maintenance Mode is not able to
operate and we get undesired alarms.


The domains are not really important for us because allready the "Simple
Hostname" is unique.
Finally we thought about cutting off the domain.


What is better:
    strip the Hostname in a Ruleset
    (how could I influence the slot "hostname")
or
    strip the Hostname at the TEC
    (has anybody knowhow of "prolog")
    (I would need a rule which
        cuts nothing if the the string is numeric (IP-Adress) and
        cuts after the first "." (Hostname + Domain))

All ideas make me happy

Bye
Martina
