Generic Computer in map



Hi,

I have another question related to HPOV MAPs-

When I create an object for other sun servers using Edit->Add object, the symbol sometimes appears with a Sun picture and sometimes not. With the Sun picture, clicking on it -interfaces are present on HPOV map. When no Sun picture, no interfaces present

How can I make this uniform for each server?

Cheers

Hi Malcolm,
The most probable case is that your servers that are not recognized as Sun, do not answer to SNMP (community problems, SNMP agent not running etc).

Another probability is that their SysOID is unrecognized by HPOV.

To check both cases:
Use Tools->SNMP MIB Browser to send query to one of the undefined severs to ".1.3.6.1.2.1.1.2" variable.
Write down the responce (if there is no responce, check the first case), and verify that such SysOID exists in "$OV_CONF/oid_to_sym" file.

Re: Generic Computer in map

You can define new entries in oid_to_sym file which will use same SUN gif files for new SysObjectID.

To do it:

1. Opem ovw
2. Tools -->SNMP MIB Browser
Enter Ip address of problematic SUN box and read community.
Go to
.iso.org.dod.internet.mgmt.mib-2.system.sysObjectID
and start Query
for a SUN box I got:
0 : .iso.org.dod.internet.private.enterprises.42.2.1.1

which is equvalent to:
1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.1.1
Now open $OV_CONF/oid_to_type and
find out similar entries.
I found
1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.1.1:Computer:SUN # Sun Microsystems SunOS agent
So this entry exist and it will use symbol SUN
Which is defined in
/etc/opt/OV/share/symbols/C/Computer# cat Computer_sun
SymbolType "Computer" : "SUN"
{
Filebase "sun";
CursorSize 38;
Capabilities {
isWorkstation= 1;
}
}


How to change:
If the entries not present in oid_to_sym simply add a new one like this:
1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.x.x:Computer:SUN # New Sun Microsystems SunOS agent


#ovw -fields
Do a
nmdemandpoll
The symbol should now change.

Thanks,
