Micro Focus Network Node Manager i (NNMi) software integrates with Micro Focus Universal CMDB (UCMDB) using the Data Flow Management (DFM) application. When you activate the NNMi integration, DFM retrieves Layer 2 network topology data from NNMi and saves the data to the UCMDB database. Users can then perform change management and impact analysis.
Use Cases
  • A UCMDB user wants to view the Layer 2 network topology supporting servers and applications. The requirement is to use NNMi as the authoritative source for that information with access through the Universal CMDB application.
  • An NNMi operator wants to view the impact of a network access switch infrastructure failure where the impact data is available in UCMDB. The NNMi operator selects an incident or a node in NNMi and then enters a request for impacted CIs.


The integration between NNMi and UCMDB uses the NNMi web services to import CIs and relationships into UCMDB.
