Known Issues

The following section contains additional information about this integration pack for IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus.

  • If the target Netcool server is not SSL-enabled, Orchestrator can stop responding when you attempt to test the connection using SSL.

    Once you make a connection attempt, either by clicking Test Connection or by opening the properties of a Netcool/Omnibus activity, the initial configuration settings are used and all subsequent changes have no effect. The JDBC drivers used to communicate with the Netcool/Omnibus ObjectServer do not recognize changes to SSL system properties once initialized.

    Workaround: In order to modify the Trust store path and Trust store password fields, restart the Runbook Designer.

  • When importing runbooks generated in Opalis, you need to open each Netcool activity in the Runbook Designer, and re-select the desired Connection. Enter the data again, and then click OK to update the published data for the activity. Note that the DateTime type properties return data with a long datestamp format.
