02/01/2010: Installation Update for NNMi 8.1x Patch 7 and NNM iSPI jboss Compatibility Workaround

09/17/2010: Installing NNMi on the Windows operating system for use with an Oracle database instance

When installing NNMi on the Windows operating system, if NNMi will use an Oracle database instance and the tablespace quota is not large enough, NNMi might install correctly but not create the tables. To prevent this situation, set the quota to unlimited, but no smaller than 1MB before installing NNMi.

07/30/2010: NNMi Command line tools require HTTP access

NNMi command line tools and other product integrations use the http protocol for communicating with NNMi and will not work without http enabled. Use the system firewall to block the outside HTTP access.

07/08/2010: Each RRG must have a unique protected IP address

Some networks use routing protocols such as HSRP (Hot Standby Router Protocol) to provide router redundancy. When routers are configured in an RRG (router redundancy group), as they are when using HSRP, the routers configured in the RRG share a protected IP address (one active and one standby). NNMi does not support the discovery and management of multiple RRGs configured with the same protected IP address. Each RRG must have a unique protected IP address.

06/24/2010: NNMi 8.1x Patch 8 adds an option for SNMPv1 trap handling preferences

NNMi 8.1x Patch 8 adds an option to prefer the IP address in an SNMPv1 trap's UDP header over the contents of the SNMPv1 trap's agent_addr field.

To use the IP address in an SNMPv1 trap's UDP header instead of the contents of the SNMPv1 trap PDU's agent_addr field, follow these steps:

  1. Edit the following file:
  2. In the ovjboss.jvm.properties file, set the useUdpHeaderIpAddress property to true:
  3. Restart ovjboss:
        ovstop ovjboss
        ovstart ovjboss
