UCMDB Data Modelling

hello All

We have integarted UCMDB with NNmi to pull the Network devices and the network topology .

We have discoved the VM's by running the Manual VMware VIM connection . 

Now how do we related the network devices to the VM's .  Can someone guide me how to proceed with the same .

Regards

AA

Re: UCMDB Data Modelling

The short answer is that you would need NNMi to also send the node, and node-to-network device relationship. The node will (should) merge with the discovered VM instance, and as a consequence the VM will then get related to its network device.

Re: UCMDB Data Modelling

Thanks Josh 

As asked earlier , we have Network devices being pulled through NNmi, Storage Devices through SOM and VM's through vCenter discover . Now how do I relate the 3 of them to get the complete service modelling .

Re: UCMDB Data Modelling

You will need to pull "overlapping" information from these systems. So you will need to also pull (or, ideally push) nodes from NNMi and their L2 relationships. This way, the nodes merge with the discovered nodes in uCMDB, and the L2 relationships get associated to the correct nodes.

Re: UCMDB Data Modelling

For VM server-switch relation you have to discover both the server and connected network device (switch/router) in NNMi. 🙂

Separately discovering the network device in NNM and server in ucmdb, then integrating NNM with ucmdb will not create the required L2 connection between the Switch and Server in ucmdb.

For Physical server you can discover both the server and network device either in ucmdb or NNMi.
