NNMi OM Integration

 

Hello,

 

From experience, can anyone tell me the best method of integration between NNMi and OM, web services or OM agent?

 

 

 

From my experience, the web services seems to have some kind of limitations. We notice sometimes that incidents are not being forwarded so we disable and re-enable the integration. On a couple of occasions we had to restart NNMi.

 

Thanx

Re: NNMi OM Integration

Hi

 

I use the OM agent (opcmsg) to forward the messages to OM. The opcmsg is invoked by the automatic actions in the incidents. This gives me a lot of control because I can ran any script and execute a lot of parsing or information gathering to enrich the information passed to OM.

Hi,

just out of curiosity - what version of NNM and OM are you running?

and how do you create/modify templates/policys?

Re: NNMi OM Integration

I've experianced this from version 8.13 till 9.20.

Please elaborate on "How do you create/modify templates/policys?". Does this have to do with OM???

Re: NNMi OM Integration

Hi,

templates are used by the agent running on NNM to match conditions,

like a snmp link-down trap.  In OM 9 I think they call templates - policys or

something like that.

Re: NNMi OM Integration

I have not done the integration via the agent before. I've always did it via the web services.
 
FYI, my experience lies in HP Network Management Center and I have a colleague who works on OM. To that effect, I only deal with the web form on NNMi's side.
 
It seems to me that most people opt for the agent integration.

Re: NNMi OM Integration

Its not difficult (with caveats of course) since theres a utility in NNMI called nnmopcexport.ovpl  which will build you a template that you can load into OMU composer.

 

 

The main caveat is that support for SNMPv1 mibs is broken.  Using v2 mibs theres an offset value for things like Hostname, hostIP address that are shifted based on the number of varbinds a snmp trap might have... its currently broken and you have to manually calculate that value offset.

Have a nice day :)

Re: NNMi OM Integration

We've switched to the integration via the agent but we're facing the issue where an open incident in NNMi gets closed, this does not reflect in OM (the event is not acknowledged).

 

With the web integration, when incidents are closed in NNMi, this gets reflected in OM.

 

Help would be much appreciated.
