- Copy the subordinate rules file from the $NCHOME/omnibus/extensions directory to the following probe directory:
$OMNIHOME/probes/arch/Note: Additional rules are available in the Probe Extension Package. For more information about downloading and using these additional rules, see the IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Probe Extension Package (SC27-5682-00).
