============================================================================ 

APAR : IV16886 
----------------------- 
Abstract: MAINTENANCESTARTTIME AND MAINTENANCEENDTIME IS NULL IN MANAGED 
STATUS TABLE. 
Description: When we keeping any device in maintenance mode then no data is 
saved in the managedstatus table like MaintenanceStartTime and 
MaintenanceEndTime, its always NULL but the changetime column is 
being filled with correct date-time. 
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV16886 

APAR : IV17929 
----------------------- 
Abstract: DOMAIN SPECIFIC EVENTGATEWAYSCHEMA.<DOMAIN>.CFG FILE NOT RE-READ 
BY KILL -HUP OF NCP_G_EVENT PROCESS 
Description: When a schema file is read, check for domain-specific file. It looks for a 
domain-specific version, and uses it if found. If not found, it defaults to the generic 
version. The value changed is not picked up by the running 
ncp_g_event. The action of kill -HUP of the ncp_g_event pid does not 
cause it to re-read the domain specific EventGatewaySchema.domain.cfg file, 
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV17929 

APAR : IV20912 
----------------------- 
Abstract: ITNM AEL TOOLS DO NOT TRANSLATE TO FRENCH CHARACTER SET AS NCW T 
OOLS DO ON THE SAME DROP DOWN MENU 
Description: Active Event List tools for ITNM do not translate as they should. 
Browser setting on French, TIP, Webtop and most parts of ITNM 
automatically translate all of the text as expected, but tools from the 'alerts' 
menus do not. 
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV20912APAR : IV22660 
----------------------- 
Abstract: NCO_P_NCPMONITOR HUP 
Description: When sending the HUP signal to the nco_p_ncpmonitor probe with 
ITNM, the probe responds to this signal by reconnecting to the objectserver. 
The objectserver reports this by two ConnectionWatch events. However, 
the ConnectionWatch is connection event (problem event) is often send one second 
later than the ConnectionWatch connection event (resolution 
event) when the ITNM probe responds to the HUP signal. Because 
LastOccurrence of the resolution ConnectionWatch event is 
earlier than the problem ConnectionWatch, the generic clear 
trigger doesn't clear the problem ConnectionWatch event. 
This behavior is noticed so far only with the ITNM probe when 
it responds to the HUP signal. For other Omnibus probe that we 
operate, the HUP respond of the probe doesn't have this effect.

APAR : IV22788
-----------------------
Abstract: UNMANAGE/MANAGE ACTION CAUSES BACKUP POLLER TO POLL DEVICE.
Description: Unmanage/manage action causes backup poller to poll device. 
In a failover environment with a Primary and Backup Poller 
running, with the Primary domain healthy and acting primary, if 
the user unmanages, then manages a device, the backup poller
will begin polling that device, and raising duplicate events.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV22788

APAR : IV23287
-----------------------
Abstract: MYSQL DB USING TOO MUCH CPU CREATING REPORTS
Description: DB push CPU usage to 100% because it have issues with
inner joins, group by and order by on SQL statements that 
retrieve large amounts of data. 
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV23287

APAR : IV25953
-----------------------
Abstract: FIND IN MAP FUNCTION FINDS ELEMENTS THAT ARE NOT IN MAP
Description: Attempting to search for a device from a network view finds the
device even if it is not in that view.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV25953

APAR : IV26760
-----------------------
Abstract: DEFAULT INTERFACE PING POLL DEFINITION HAS 'IFADMINSTATUS'
FILTER CASUING POLLER NOT TO POLL VALID IPADDRESSES.
Description: The 'Default Interface Ping' Poll definition has following
filters under Interface filter tab against 'ncim.interfaces'
table i.e. ipAddress IS NOT NULL ifAdminStatus = 'up'.
There could be many cases where we have valid IPAddress for an 
interface where ifAdminStatus is not populated. All such
scenarios won't be polled by 'Interface Ping' policy.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV26760

APAR : IV27702
-----------------------
Abstract: NETWORK VIEWS ARE TOO SLOW TO OPEN DUE TO HUGE TOPOLOGY
Description: Customers with huge topology struggle with performance due to the
long time it takes for the data to be retrieved from the database.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV27702

APAR : IV28121
-----------------------
Abstract: NCP_PERL FAILS WITH ERRORS IN WINDOWS APPLICATION ERROR
Description: ncp_perl.exe failed and the following error created in windows
application log. Faulting application name: ncp_perl.exe xxxxxxx
time stamp: 0x4d52b578 Faulting module name: libxxxxxx.dll..
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV28121

APAR : IV29828
-----------------------
Abstract: WEBTOOL MANUAL LOGON FAILS WHEN M_PASSWORD HAS SPECIAL CHARACTERS
Description: Login or authorization failure using Webtools when attempting a 
manual connection. Webtools manual login fail when password contains special 
characters.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV29828

APAR : IV30425
-----------------------
Abstract:ON FAILOVER/FAILBACK, ACTIVE POLLER SHOULD CONTINUE POLLING 
UNTIL NEW POLLER IS READY TO TAKE OVER
Description: When NCIM database is remote, Poller process takes very long
time to sync with NCIM and to evaluate the scope during 
start-up. The start-up time could vary from 30 mins to 3 hours 
depending upon domain size, number of active policies, number of 
entities to monitor and Interface/Device filters etc. 
Same delay is applicable in a failover scenario, when Primary 
goes down, Backup domain takes over in the given configured 
period - default is 5 minutes. But Poller isn't doing any 
monitoring as the poller synchronization with NCIM and scope
evaluation of Poll policies/definitions could take few hours. 
Same is true for failback scenario. On failback, the active Poller was sending it's heartbeat 
once the monitors were activated, but before they started to 
poll resulting in a gap in monitoring.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV30425

APAR : IV31296
-----------------------
Abstract: ASSOCADDRESS AGENT TO USE IPADENTADDR VALUE INSTEAD OF THE INDEX 
FOR THE IPADDRTABLE ENTRY.
Description: Unable to discovery Redware Alteon Application Delivery Controller (ADC) and
VADC (Virtual ADC) properly. Introduce a new option called UseSnmpIpValue for 
AssocAddres agent to use the actual ipAdEntAddr value instead of using the index of the
ipAddrTable entry, if the device's matches the OID filter defined in this flag. By default, the 
agent will use the IP value from ipAdEntAddr column for Alteon devices. 
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV31296

APAR : IV31587
-----------------------
Abstract: SNMP TIMEOUT 
Description: For every first SNMP query to determinate if the device responds
to SNMP, the timeout configured is not used. The process does not use wait 3 seconds to
start the first retry but it reties after 1 sec of timeout. During the initial SNMP credential 
discovery the configured timeout and retries for a given IP address were not always 
used. Meaning that sometimes ITNM failed to gain SNMP access 
to devices that were responding slowly.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV31587

APAR : IV31984
-----------------------
Abstract: IN A DISTRIBUTED ENVIRONMENT REMOTE PROCESSES UNABLE TO
RE-ESTABLISH CONNECTION WHEN THE BROKER DAEMON RESTARTED
Description: In a distributed environment - for e.g.
ServerA : ITNM Core except ncp_model
ServerB : ncp_model & NCIM database
When the broker (ncp_brokerd) on ServerA is restarted for 
whatever reason - the processes on ServerB notices a
disconnection, but unable to re-establish connection with new
broker instance upon restart.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV31984

APAR : IV32386
-----------------------
Abstract: ITNM PROCESSES FAIL TO STOP AFTER DB2 DATABASE IS RECYCLED.
Description: DB2 database is recycled then some of the ncp processes are not
terminated with itnm_stop script. The proccess like ncp_model,
ncp_poller and ncp_g_event are not terminated with itnm_stop 
means process are still running after itnm_stop script is completed.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV32386

APAR : IV32747
-----------------------
Abstract: NCP_POLLER CORE AT SHUT DOWN OF ITNM
Description: When shutting down the ncp_ processes, typically via 
itnm_stop ncp, a core file is generated for the ncp_poller 
process. When shutting down the ncp_ processes, typically via
itnm_stop ncp, a core file is generated for the ncp_poller 
process when network contains devices managed via SNMP v3
and at least one SNMP poll policy is active.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV32747

APAR : IV33079
-----------------------
Abstract: NCP_DISCO CORE DUMPS WHILE EXITING IF NAT TIMER STITCHER (RUNS 
EVERY HOUR OUT-OF-THE-BOX) TRIGGERED DURING SAMETIME.
Description: If the disco process is getting recycled (stopped and restarted) 
on top of the hour say 10am, and the NATTimer stitcher which
runs every hour out-of-the-box is triggered at same time will 
cause Disco process to core while exiting.

to sub components must follow a number of rules (as documented in
the ITNM best practices guide.)
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV33114

APAR : IV33118
-----------------------
Abstract: REMOTE POLLERS ARE NOT STOPPING REMOTELY
Description: During the stop of ncp_ctrl all the local children are stopped and the remote 
processes are stopped via the ncp_ctrl slave.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV33118

APAR : IV33128
-----------------------
Abstract: NETWORK VIEWS FAIL TO HANDLE INVALID FILTERS GRACEFULLY
Description: If a filter is invalid it throws exception causing the Wetop
Entity registration to terminate, hence some views have no 
status. Status not visible on some or all nodes in a network view.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV33128

APAR : IV33250
------------------------
Abstract: INVALID OID REQUESTED WHEN INTERFACE FILTERING IS ENABLED AND 
ALL IN-SCOPE DEVICES ARE UNMANAGED AND REMANAGED
Description: Enable SNMP polling and apply an interface filter. The 
interface filter prevents the poller from simply walking the
interface index and ensures that it has to construct the
interface index as part of the poll.
Select all the hosts that comprise the entire scope of the poll 
policy. Then toggle the managed status of the devices, i.e.
unmanage them all, and then remanage them all.

APAR : IV33478
-----------------------
Abstract: RECREATEANDSENDTOPOLOGY.STCH IS MISSING THE CALL TO SONMPLAYER
Description: During a rediscovery the SONMPLayer database is not
included in the list of arguments to the Merge Layers stitcher
in RecreateAndSendTopology.stch leading to incorrect 
connectivity for devices advertising data via SONMP such as
Nortel switches.

APAR : IV33533
-----------------------
Abstract: STRUCTURE BROWSER SEARCH FAILS TO FIND MATCH VLANS
Description: VLANs do not seem to be included in the search pattern of the 
Structure Browser. The search request statement needs to be
altered to query the VLANs, VPNs, etc..
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IV33533

APAR : IV33578
-----------------------
Abstract: THE ITNM_DISCO.PL CORE DUMP WHEN IT IS STOPPED BY CTRL+C
Description: The itnm_disco.pl core dump when interrupted by Ctrl+C.
The issue is caused by the way that AIX and perl handle signals. On Linux and Solaris the 
signals end up being called within the main thread but on AIX they can get called on the 
IO thread. In addition the use of multiple signal handlers can result in inconsistent data ( i.e. cores ) according to the perl manual. The ncp_perl script has a
signal handler and as the perl script also had a signal handler it caused a core.

APAR : IV33996
-----------------------
Abstract: ITNM REJECTS LINKS DISCOVERED BY SONMP STITCHER
Description: Incorrect/Missing layer 2 connectivity between Nortel Avaya switches. In
SONMPLayer.stch, ITNM rejected those links that coming from devices with
unknown/unsupported chassis type. The code was too restrictive to devices which has certain known chassis type number.

APAR : IV34108
-----------------------
Abstract: DOCUMENT THE "MONITORING POLICY DETAILS" REPORT
Description: The "Monitoring Policy Details" report does not show a list of 
nodes to be queried as documented. Instead it shows a list of
nodes for a policy that has the store option set, and that is a 
prerequisite for getting any report.

APAR : IV35501
------------------------
Abstract: DUPLICATES IN 'SHOW CONNECTIVITY INFORMATION' GUI FOR DEVICE
Description: For VLAN (or other sub-connections), its containing entities 
will be displayed in the 'show connectivity' GUI. The filter 
method iterate through the connections to make sure only one
instance of such is displayed but sometimes it doesn't filter 
correctly.The problem will appear as an identical connections. 
Investigation into model and ncim show that there are not
duplicate interfaces to be found.

APAR : IV35661
-----------------------
Abstract: GET_POLICIES.PL DOES NOT IMPORT POLICY INTERFACE FILTER WHEN
MIGRATING FROM 3.8 TO 3.9
Description: When trying to migrate policies from 3.8 to 3.9 ,
policy interface filter is lost. In ITNM 3.8 interface filter is stored on policy.ifScopeId
column. In 3.9 interface filter is defined at template level (template.ifScopeId). 
The migration process:3.8 - ncp_perl get_policies.pl -from domain=NCOMS -to
file=get_policies_NCOMS.dat. 3.9 - ncp_perl get_policies.pl -from
file=get_policies_NCOMS.dat -to domain=NCOMS 
fails to transfer the interface filter (policy.ifScopeId -> template.ifScopeId).

APAR : IV35842
-----------------------
Abstract: POLLER THROWS UNSUPPORTED DATABASE TYPE: ORACLE11 WHEN POLLING 
IS FILTERED ON A VIEW.
Description: 
Create a snmp policy. Filter the policy on a view created in the
Network Views. Save the policy.
In the ncp_poller.DOMAINNAME.trace we get the following error 
message: Exception in thread "Thread-21" java.lang.RuntimeException:

APAR : IV36091
-----------------------
Abstract: SNMP COMMUNITY STRING INDEXING FAILED ON NORTEL DEVICES AND BAD 
SNMP COMMUNITY STRING REPORTED
Description: NortelSwitch agent uses community string indexing to query FDB data,
causing SNMP authentication failure alarm generated. It has been found out that 
Nortel/Avaya switches that supports standard FDB MIBs do not support community string 
Indexing. The NortelSwitch agent code has been updated to avoid using community string 
indexing if the device do not support private FDB MIBs and only supports standard FDB 
MIBs. NortelSwtich agent would use community string indexing only if the device supports 
private FDB MIBs.

APAR : IV36856
-----------------------
Abstract: MEMORY USAGE REPORT USES INCORRECT POLL POLICY
Description: The "Memory usage report" uses the incorrect policy. 
The code, and consequently the documentation are incorrect as the
"Memory usage report" does not depend on stored data from the
CiscoMemoryPool policy.
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v8r1/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.networkmanagerip.doc_3.9%2Fitnm%2Fip%2Fwip%2Fref%2Freference%2Fnmip_ref_report_memoryusage.html

APAR : IV37074
-----------------------
Abstract: POLLER PRODUCES A LARGE AMOUNT OF EVENTS AFTER STARTUP
Description: The poller generates hundreds of Link State change events on
startup. Most of these events may be for empty ports or access 
ports if the Link State polls did not filter out these
interfaces, and of little value. With the introduction of FP02 the initial state of all polls are 
determined by existing events. If there are no existing events then the initial state is
determined to be "clear". In networks where ports are not yet used, but have not be 
placed into AdminStatus down, having the initial state set to clear can result in 
unnecessary Snmp Link State down events. Previously the first poll would have been used 
to establish the initial state for the Snmp Link State polls, resulting in no link down events. 
for customers who do not set their port's AdminStatus this was the desired behavior.

APAR : IV37322
-----------------------
Abstract: INCORRECT VLAN MODELING WITH HUAWEI SWITCHES
Description: Incorrect VLAN modelling with Huawei switches via StandardSwitch agent. The
Huawei device uses dot1dBasePortIfIndex to map the port number (PortList) into interface 
index. StandardSwitch agent code does not perform this mapping while discovering VLAN 
information.
The StandardSwitch agent has been updated to add the port to ifIndex mapping into the 
StandardSwitch agent while parsing dot1qVlanCurrentEgressPorts data.

APAR : IV37587
-----------------------
Abstract: MIB GRAPH DOES NOT RENDER
Description: In a failover setup using a non replicating NCIM the backup
poller can interfere with the proper scope evaluation of the primary poller
Error message:
"No data was received from server after multiple polling
intervals. Please check the graph configuration, or see the
log for more information.
The backup Poller would evaluate it's scope while in stand by 
mode and update the scopedEntity table. This table would
then be used by the primary Poller when re-evaluating scope,
resulting in entities to be missed. This issue impacts Mib
Grapher and regular policies.

Abstract: When Interface alarms incorrectly associated to Chassis, they

Description: Alarms for interfaces that could not be found in the topology 
(either because the interface was removed from the topology to
improve performance or because of other issue with syslog
interface alarms -IV47678 ) were suppressing other unrelated
alarms on the chassis and down stream network. This would 
happen because the alarms were being updated to set the
NmosEntityId to the EntityId of the chassis. The
LookupIfEntry.stch prevents the alarm being treated as a 
chassis alarm on it's first occurrence but subsequent
occurrences are treated by RCA as at the level of the chassis
because of the value of the NmosEntityId. 
An event raised against an interface which is not found will become root cause, 
suppressing other events on the containing chassis, if it raised more than once.

Abstract: NETNUMBER AND IPNUMBER IN NCIM.IPENDPOINT INCORRECTLY CALCULATED
Description: The NETNUMBER and IPNUMBER are incorrectly calculated
for IPv6 addresses. Some translations of IPv6 addresses to number form failed on
little endian systems because ntohl() was used with 64-bit
values (it only supports 32-bit).
User running on, say, linux on intel x86 (little endian)
encountered the issue while big endian systems (e.g Solaris 
on SPARC, or AIX on PowerPC) wouldn't hit the issue.
The end result was that the IPNUMBER and NETNUMBER values in 
NCIM's ipEndPoint table could be wrong.

protocol to IPv4. Collector framework doesn't support IPv6 (it assumed IPv4)
and the EMS is providing IPv6 addresses. 
As a result the IPv6 addresses end up in the Disco tables
with the incorrect protocol set. This leads to warning such as;

============================================================================ 

Prerequisites

IBM Tivoli Network Manager V3.9 must be installed before applying this
Fix Pack. Fix Pack 4 can be install over original 3.9 GA (3.9.0.32), 3.9 Refresh (3.9.0.68) or any other 3.9 Fix Pack.


Ensure that there is approximately 1 GB of free space on the drive on which the product was installed.

Windows 2008 imposes a limit of 260 characters for the full name (including path) of a file. 
Network Manager 3.9 Fix Pack 2 and later fix packs already have some very long directory names 
because the fix pack contains updates from many components such as WebSphere, TIP, TCR,
which by themselves are up to 221 characters in length, including separators. Therefore Windows
users are advised to select a location for the compressed Network Manager 3.9 Fix Pack image 
on their machine so that when extracted, the resulting file names are less than 260 characters. 
For example, C:\Build will work as a location for the fix pack image, but 
C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Test will not.

Note: When using the Windows command line, preface and suffix environment
variables with the percentage sign %, and replace each forward slash (/)
with a backslash (\) in directory paths.
For example, on Windows systems, $NCHOME is %NCHOME%.

Full details on installation prerequisite for this fixpack can be found in the
3.9.0_INSTALL_FP0004 file.

Installation Instructions

Full details on installation prerequisites and installation steps for this fixpack can be found in the 3.9.0_INSTALL_FP0004 file, which is downloadable from the link below..

If upgrading an existing IBM Tivoli Network Manager (ITNM) 3.9 installation that is using Tivoli Integrated Portal (TIP) version 2.1 to use TIP version 2.2, you will need the TIP FIT package. The TIP FIT package contains a TIP signature file used with TIP 2.2 Fix Packs and Feature Pack. Additional fix packs for TIP 2.2 can be applied after TIP 2.2.0.1 (Feature Pack), such as TIP 2.2.0.13. Each fix pack of TIP 2.2 (such as TIP 2.2.0.13) will have a separate TIP FIT package / signature file associated with it.

To obtain the TIP signature files, download them from Fix Central -->
http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?parent=ibm~Tivoli&product=ibm/Tivoli/Tivoli+Integrated+Portal&release=All&platform=All&function=all

Note from the TIP support team: the FIT packaging is bit different from TIP 2.2.0.1 to TIP 2.2.0.13. In TIP 2.2.0.13, FIT package you will not see any "input" folder and the signature file will be part of FIT.jar

Please use the same user id that you used to install the product/fix pack to extract these and then run the fix pack installer.

Prerequisites

. Network Manager V3.9 or earlier 3.9 Fix Packs must be installed before applying this Fix Pack.
. Ensure that there is approximately 1 GB of free space on the drive on which the product was installed.

. Windows 2008 imposes a limit of 260 characters for the full name (including path) of a file. 
Network Manager 3.9 Fix Pack 2 and later fix packs already have some very long directory names 
because the fix pack contains updates from many components such as WebSphere, TIP, TCR,
which by themselves are up to 221 characters in length, including separators. Therefore Windows
users are advised to select a location for the compressed Network Manager 3.9 Fix Pack image 
on their machine so that when extracted, the resulting file names are less than 260 characters. 
For example, C:\Build will work as a location for the fix pack image, but 
C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Test will not.

Full details on installation prerequisite for this fixpack can be found in the
3.9.0_INSTALL_FP0003 file.

Installation Instructions

 

Full details on installation prerequisites and installation steps for this fixpack can be found in the
3.9.0_INSTALL_FP0003 file, which is downloadable from the link below..

NOTE:
If upgrading an existing IBM Tivoli Network Manager (ITNM) 3.9 installation that is using Tivoli Integrated Portal (TIP) version 2.1 to use TIP version 2.2, you will need the TIP FIT package. The TIP FIT package contains a TIP signature file used with TIP 2.2 Fix Packs and Feature Pack. Additional fix packs for TIP 2.2 can be applied after TIP 2.2.0.1 (Feature Pack), such as TIP 2.2.0.9. Each fix pack of TIP 2.2 (such as TIP 2.2.0.9) will have a separate TIP FIT package / signature file associated with it.

To obtain the TIP signature files, download them from Fix Central -->
http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?parent=ibm~Tivoli&product=ibm/Tivoli/Tivoli+Integrated+Portal&release=All&platform=All&function=all

From the TIP support team, the FIT packaging is bit different from TIP 2.2.0.1 to TIP 2.2.0.9. In TIP 2.2.0.9, FIT package you will not see any "input" folder and the signature file will be part of FIT.jar. 

Please use the same user id that you used to install the product/fix pack to extract these and then run the fix pack installer.
