8.6 Tivoli Storage Resource Manager event forwarding
After we have prepared the Tivoli Event Console Server (TEC) to receive events from IBM
Tivoli Storage Resource Manager, we must enable IBM Tivoli Storage Resource Manager
428 IBM Tivoli Storage Resource Manager: A Practical Introduction
itself to forward events to TEC. Open the IBM Tivoli Storage Resource Manager Desktop and
navigate to
Administrative Services -> Configuration -> Alert Disposition and enter the
hostname of your TEC server and the port (Windows 5529, UNIX 0) in the TEC section on the
right (Figure 8-23).
Figure 8-23 Setting the TEC server properties
Save your changes by clicking on the Save button under the top menu.
This configuration only defines where TEC events should be sent to - we have not yet actually
enabled any events. To enable events for a specific topic in IBM Tivoli Storage Resource
Manager, you have to select the TEC check box on every Alert properties tab that you want ti
activate. For example, if you want a TEC event sent when the Default Scan fails, navigate to
its properties page and enable it (Figure 8-24).
Chapter 8. Integration with Tivoli Enterprise Console 429
Figure 8-24 Enabling TEC events for the default scan
You can configure IBM Tivoli Storage Resource Manager to send a TEC event for any Alerts.
Another example is to send an event when a new computer is discovered, as shown in
Figure 8-25.
