    Conventions used in this guideAll probe guides use standard conventions for operating system-dependentenvironment variables and directory paths.

    Operating system-dependent variables and paths

    All probe guides use standard conventions for specifying environment variablesand describing directory paths, depending on what operating systems the probe issupported on.

    For probes supported on UNIX and Linux operating systems, probe guides use thestandard UNIX conventions such as $variable for environment variables andforward slashes (/) in directory paths. For example:

    $OMNIHOME/probes

    For probes supported only on Windows operating systems, probe guides use thestandard Windows conventions such as %variable% for environment variables andbackward slashes (\) in directory paths. For example:

    %OMNIHOME%\probes

    For probes supported on UNIX, Linux, and Windows operating systems, probeguides use the standard UNIX conventions for specifying environment variablesand describing directory paths. When using the Windows command line withthese probes, replace the UNIX conventions used in the guide with Windowsconventions. If you are using the bash shell on a Windows system, you can use theUNIX conventions.

    Note: The names of environment variables are not always the same in Windowsand UNIX environments. For example, %TEMP% in Windows environments isequivalent to $TMPDIR in UNIX and Linux environments. Where such variables aredescribed in the guide, both the UNIX and Windows conventions will be used.

    Operating system-specific directory names

    Where Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus files are identified as located within an archdirectory under NCHOME or OMNIHOME, arch is a variable that represents youroperating system directory. For example:

    $OMNIHOME/probes/arch

    The following table lists the directory names used for each operating system.

    vi IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Probe for Huawei U2000 (CORBA): Reference Guide

  • Note: This probe may not support all of the operating systems specified in thetable.

    Operating system Directory name represented by arch

    HP-UX Integrity-based systems hpux11hpia

    Red Hat Linux and SUSE systems linux2x86

    Linux for System z linux2s390

    Solaris systems solaris2

    Windows systems win32

    OMNIHOME location

    Probes and older versions of Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus use the OMNIHOMEenvironment variable in many configuration files. Set the value of OMNIHOME asfollows:v On UNIX and Linux, set $OMNIHOME to $NCHOME/omnibus.v On Windows, set %OMNIHOME% to %NCHOME%\omnibus.

  • IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Probe for Huawei U2000(CORBA)

    The Huawei U2000 is a unified network management system that provides elementmanagement and network management functions for telecommunicationsnetworks.

    The Probe for Huawei U2000 (CORBA) acquires data from the Huawei U2000element management system (EMS) using a Common Object Request BrokerArchitecture (CORBA) interface. CORBA is an Object Management Groupspecification that provides a standard interface definition between objects in adistributed environment.

    This guide contains the following sections:v Summaryv Installing probes on page 2v Configuring the probe on page 5v Firewall considerations on page 7v Making the probe NIST compliant on page 8v SSL-based connectivity on page 9v Running the probe on page 10v Data acquisition on page 10v Command line interface on page 24v Properties and command line options on page 30v Elements on page 39v Error messages on page 42v ProbeWatch messages on page 44

    SummaryEach probe works in a different way to acquire event data from its source, andtherefore has specific features, default values, and changeable properties. Use thissummary information to learn about this probe.
