About the Probe Extension Package installation

The Probe Extension Package installation incorporates a series of automatic and manual processes to add enhanced functionality to your existing IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus installation.

Some target systems require new columns in the alerts.status table. Some target systems may also require additional triggers, or modifications to existing triggers.

You must configure the relevant probes to use these updated rules files. The Probe Extension Package provides the necessary SQL files to perform these changes. If you do not use the SQL files provided you must manually carry out the changes using the Administrator GUI. The updated rules files enhance the ability of the probe to identify and flag events according to their causal relevance.
