Description

The web services implementation of the Micro Focus Network Node Manager (NNM) to Micro Focus Operations Manager (OM) integration forwards NNMi incidents to the MFOM active messages browser. The integration synchronizes incidents between NNMi and MF OM. It also provides for accessing the NNMi console from within MF OM.

The MF NNMi-MF OM integration supports a "many-to-many" arrangement. Each NNMi management server can forward incidents to multiple MF OM management servers. Likewise, each MF OM management server can receive incidents from multiple NNMi management servers. The integration interprets the unique identifier of an incident to determine the source NNMi management server.

The MF NNMi-MF OM integration consists of the following components:

  • MF NNMi-MF OM Integration Module
    The MF NNMi-MF OM integration module forwards incidents from NNMi to MF OM. It is installed and configured on the NNMi management server.
  • MF Operations Manager Incident Web Service
    MF OM uses the MF Operations Manager Incident Web Service (IWS) to receive the incidents that are forwarded from NNMi.
  • MF OM applications for contextual access of the NNMi console
    MF OM provides applications for accessing forms, views, and tools in the NNMi console. For example, you can open an NNMi incident directly from the MF OM active messages browser. The specific application determines the context in which the NNMi console opens. You need to configure the applications before you can use them.

The MF NNMi-MF OM integration provides event consolidation in the MF OM active messages browser for the network management, system management, and application management domains, so that MF OM users can detect and investigate potential network problems.

The primary features of the integration are as follows:

  • Automatic incident forwarding from NNMi to MF OM.
    • Forwarded incidents appear in the MF OM active messages browser.
    • You can create filters that limit which incidents NNMi forwards.
  • Synchronization of Incident updates between NNMi and MF OM as described in the following table:

    Trigger
    Result

    In MF OM, the message is acknowledged.

    In NNMi, the corresponding incident's lifecycle state is set to Closed.

    In MF OM, the message is unacknowledged.

    In NNMi, the corresponding incident's lifecycle state is set to Registered.

    In NNMi, the incident's lifecycle state is set to Closed.

    In MF OM, the corresponding message is acknowledged.

    In NNMi, the incident's lifecycle state is changed from Closed to any other state.

    In MF OM, the corresponding message is unacknowledged.

  • Access to the NNMi console from MF OM.
    • MF OM users can open the NNMi Incident form in the context of a selected message.
    • MF OM users can launch an NNMi view (for example, the Layer 2 Neighbor view) in the context of a selected message and node.
    • MF OM users can launch an NNMi tool (for example, status poll) in the context of a selected message and node.
    • When MF OM is consolidating NNMi incidents from multiple NNMi management servers, the integration interprets the unique identifier of each incident to access the correct NNMi management server.
