HPSIM/RSP interfacing with IBM TIVOLI software

I need to find out how I can accomplish interfacing events from HPSIM to the IBM Tivoli. If someone has knowledge of how to or has set this up I need help. The customer is in the process of outsourcing there IT to IBM site and IBM will be doing the monitoring, but HPSIM with RSP will be sending the events to HP.

brian,

AFAIK Tivoli has a 'plugin' for HP SIM, whether it's free or not i don't know. All you need to do is set up an automatic event task in HP SIM to forward the traps to the Tivoli netcool server.


good luck

brian,

i did this as part of a project to implement an enterprise-wide monitoring solution. bmc ibm and hp products. all that the ibm guys required
from hp sim was for all the events to be forwarded as snmp traps. they had some kind of plugin/config file for hp sim on the tivoli netcool server that they loaded to process hp sim events, it was as simple as that.
