NNMi QCCR1B139317

VM node reconciliation problem between tenants—-This problem appears only if all of the following conditions are true:

  • NNMi discovers a Virtual Machine (VM) through two different discovery methods. Once the VM is discovered using a Web Agent, and then the same VM is discovered again using an SNMP Agent.
  • The two instances of the VM are assigned to two different tenants during the discovery process, which is possible when:

    • One VM instance is auto-discovered when its ESXi server is seeded and the ESXi server is configured for one tenant.
    • The other VM instance is initially discovered when its IP address is seeded and this seed object is configured to be assigned a different tenant.

As a result, two instances of the same VM appear in the NNMi inventory.

When you assign the Web Agent-discovered VM instance to the tenant where the SNMP Agent-discovered VM instance belongs (or vice versa), the VM instance that is assigned to the new tenant replaces the VM instance that already resided in that tenant.

When discovering VMs, assign the ESXi server and its VMs to the same tenant first, and then move VM instances to tenants of your choice. This enables NNMi to merge the VM data collected from multiple agents before the VM is assigned to a different tenant.
NNMi QCCR1B139468 VM name and host name during initial discovery—-When the initial discovery continues, it is possible that the VM name and the host name of a VM are set to the Partition ID of the VM. Once the discovery of the VM completes, the correct VM name and host name are set. Wait for initial discovery to complete.
NNMi QCCR1B148891 If you install NNMi10.30 manually after installing NNMi10.20, the Small IPv6 Subnet connection rule (introduced in 10.30) does not appear in the Subnet Connection Rules tab in the Discovery Configuration form.

If the Small IPv6 Subnet connection rule does not appear in the Subnet Connection Rules tab, follow these steps:

  1. Log on to the NNMi console as administrator.
  2. Launch the Discovery Configuration form.
  3. In the Subnet Connection Rules tab, click New.
  4. Type Small IPv6 Subnet in the Name box.
  5. Make sure that the Enable option is selected.
  6. In the Minimum Prefix Length box, type 127.
  7. Click Save & Close.
