Issue:

We are trying to integrate Spectrum with IBM Tivoli SD.

IBM team is using their Netcool Probe to integrate with our Spectrum.We have created a user for tivoli integration in CA spectrum and have given them our server details.But still IBM team is not able to connect with Spectrum.

Are there any other configurations that need to be done from Spectrum side for this integration?

Resolution:

You must configure the SpectroSERVERs that you are using to enable them to accept CORBA connections from the probe. 

Configuring a SpectroSERVER to accept connections from the probe involves the following tasks: 

1. Using the Spectrum Control Panel (SCP) or OneClick add the details of the probe host system to the SpectroSERVER's server list. 

Note: If you add a plus sign (+) to the sever list, all hosts will be able to connect to the SpectroSERVER. 

2. Create a Spectrum User Model for the user ID that runs the probe. 

3. Add the user ID to the associated UserList.

 

The probe requires access to a number of Java utilities that are supplied with your CA Spectrum installation.

Copy the following files from $SPECROOT/lib to $OMNIHOME/probes/java/nco_p_ca_spectrum_corba:

cryptoJFIPS.jar

global93.jar

lm.jar

sanct6.jar

ssorb93.jar

ssortbutil93.jar

util93.jar

utilapp93.jar

utilnet93.jar

utilsrv93.jar

vbhelpher93.jar

vbjorb.jar

vbsec.jar

Where $SPECROOT is the directory where CA Spectrum is installed and 9x is the version of CA Spectrum that you are running.

Note: You will have to create the nco_p_ca_spectrum_corba folder manually.

For probe installations on Linux operating systems, you must also copy the following files to $OMNIHOME/probes/java/nco_p_ca_spectrum_corba:

sanct6.jar

sanctuary.jar

Older Versions:

The Probe for CA Spectrum (CORBA) can receive events from CA Spectrum version 9.4 onwards. It is only supported on Netcool/OMNIbus V8.1 and above. If you want to receive events from CA Spectrum versions 9.0 to 9.3, you must use the Probe for CA Spectrum V9 (CORBA). For details about accessing this version of the probe See https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21641820.
