NNMi integration with OMi 10.x

Jump to solution

hi board

 

 

i am currently looking at the integration of NNMi 10.x into OMi 10.x (Operations Manager). based on what i have read in the NNMi Integrations Guide for Operations Manager 10.x, the events integrations works via the agent which is also the recommended way.

 

but i am wondering if the topology integration into RTSM or uCMDB is still working over web api as previously seen with BSM 9.x? i have not been able to find any information regarding topology integration in the documentation.

 

 

thanks for your comments

Hi Tibor,

 

Yes it is.

The HP NNMi–HP BSM/UCMDB Topology Integration is actually described in the NNMi—HP Business Service

Management/Universal CMDB Topology Integration Guide. There are a a few references to the NNMi-HPOM integration there, such as for instance:

 

Using the agent implementation of the HP NNMi—HPOM integration, and

pointing to a BSM Connector, results in an HP NNMi–HP BSM Operations

Management integration that associates incidents regarding NNMi-managed

devices with BSM CIs. For more information, see Configuration Item Identifiers

on page 46.

Using the agent implementation of the HP NNMi—HPOM integration, and

pointing to an HPOM agent on the NNMi management server, can associate

incidents regarding NNMi-managed devices with BSM CIs. For more information,

see the Configuration Item Identifiers section of the HP Network Node Manager i

Software - HP Operations Manager Integration Guide.

The comprehensive relationships maintained by RTSM or UCMDB enable an

NNMi operator to view the impact of a network access switch infrastructure

failure on other supported devices and applications. The NNMi operator selects an

incident or a node in NNMi and then enters a request for impacted CIs.

 

The HP NNMi—HPOM Integration Guide has also a couple of references to the NNMi—HP BSM/UCMDB Topology Integration Guide, as for instance:

 

When HP NNMi integrates with the HP Business Service Management (BSM)

topology database, the agent implementation of the HP NNMi—HPOM integration

can associate incidents regarding NNMi-managed devices with BSM configuration

items (CIs). This information is not available with the standard NNMi northbound

interface. For more information, see Configuration Item Identifiers on page 17.

 

In HP Business Service Management (BSM) and HP Universal CMDB Software

(UCMDB), a configuration item (CI) is a database representation of a component in

the IT environment. A CI can be a line of business, business process, application,

server hardware, or a service.


When HP NNMi integrates with the BSM topology database or UCMDB, HP NNMi

shares CI information with BSM or UCMDB for the devices that HP NNMi manages.

In this case, the agent implementation of the HP NNMi—HPOM integration can

associate incidents regarding NNMi-managed devices with BSM or UCMDB CIs. The

SNMP trap policy conditions enable this association.


For information about the integrations with BSM and UCMDB, see the
HP NNMi—

HP Business Service Management Integration Guide.

 

All the best

Hello Tibornad

 

Just to add to Mari's comment, the integration creates a direct conenction across  the gatway to RTSM.
