As shown in Figure 4-21, the only events that we will send are the Link_Down
and Link_Up events and those will be sent for all the SmartSets.
Because commands launched from IBM Tivoli Business Systems Manager to
NetView are executed locally, the NetView Web console must be installed on all
workstations that will be used to access IBM Tivoli Business Systems Manager
and its Java console. NetView provides a download page with install images of
the NetView Web console for various platforms. You can access this download
page by connecting to NetView Server using a Web browser. In our case, the
download page is:
http://ibmtiv5:8080/download
and 8080 is the default port on which the NetView Web server listens. A
download page is shown in Figure 4-22 on page 118.

For a Windows-based workstation, select nvwcinstal.exe and download the file.
This is a Windows install image which you can install on the target workstation.
Note: With the current implementation of the NetView IBM Tivoli Business
Systems Manager adapter, a launch of the NetView Web Console from the
IBM Tivoli Business Systems Manager Java console will not work with the
default path the Web Console installer suggests. One component installed on
the IBM Tivoli Business Systems Manager side, nvlaunch.jar, only supports
file paths in the classic 8.3 notation. We recommend that you change the
install directory during the NetView Web Console install to something like
c:\NVWC, as shown in Figure 4-23.

The install procedure creates an object on your Windows desktop. Double-click
that icon to launch the Web Console and open the login window as shown in
Figure 4-24.
