Recently upgraded to OMNIbus 7.3.1 FixPack 7 and decided to test our failover capability. When the Gateway on the backup server was retarted, the following errors appeared in the NCOMSB.log:
Do you ever want to be able to export the Netcool OMNIbus database to look at, backup, or duplicate? Here is a great way to move changes made in pre-production environments to production environments. Export the DB and then re-import it. This command will export the 6 main tabs from the Object Server into 6 individual sql scripts in the current directory.
nco_osreport -dbinit -server -user root –password <password>
The following steps will show how to create a Role, Group, View, and then add users to the group giving them access to the View in IBM Tivoli Integrated Portal for Impact and\or OMNIbus.
Several of these steps can be completed in any order; this is only one way of going through the motions.
Logged into TIP to access Impact. Went to Policies and was greeted by this nice message: "Unable to reach the nameserver to get the list of clusters."
Checked if the Nameserver was running by going to: http://<Impactserver>:9080/nameserver/services. This is the default path, your installation may vary. You can verify path and port by looking in the $IMPACT_HOME/etc/nameserver.props
.tar files are similiar to .zip files, but they can be simple collections of files, or they can be compressed using gzip or bzip. Tar files also known as tarballs can be used for transfering files, or just archiving and backup purposes. Below we run through how to create and unpack each set of file types.
Creating the tar:
It is nice to give credit where credit is due, but in some cases it just takes up space and just needs to go. In our case we wanted to remove the Submitted by and Date\Time from our polls. The submitter would be the same person every time, so no need to give credit. In fact this may be good practice for all site owner\editor generated content to remove this extra query and reduce the page size\load times.
For each content type where the Submitted by is not needed, go to "structure", then to "content types."
How do you randomize the results in a page or block using Drupal Views?
Start off by creating the page or block in Drupal Views.
Remove the default sort criteria.
Add a new criteria of: Global: Random.
This will randomize the results of the sql query generated by Drupal Views.
So I wanted to create a random polls module. Polls offers the ability to create a block for the "Most Recent" Poll, but that is it.
Start by creating a new view.
After loading the XML Gateway for Linux we ran into a problem with the java. Following the install instructions, we loaded the java support packs for XML Gateway first and then loaded the XML Gateway packages. While attempting to start the gateway we were given the following error:
/opt/IBM/…/nco_g_xml: error while loading shared libraries: libjvm.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This is more common with smaller implementations, but in some cases a splunk instance might be running on a multi-homed \ multi-IP box. Say you have several web pages or another application on the same box. Maybe you have some management tools for the box loading that take up a specific IP. If there is a conflict, you may need to bind Splunk to a specific IP.
