Customizing the Netcool/Impact instance name

Learn how to customize the IBM® Tivoli® Netcool®/Impact instance name.

The instance name for the Netcool/Impact cluster defaults to NCI_<number>, where <number> is the pod ordinal when Netcool/Impact is scaled in a cluster. If clustering is not configured, <number> is set to 0. You can change the instance name.

To configure Netcool/Impact in the cloud as a cluster, use the following steps:

  1. Edit the custom resource (CR) YAML file. Add the following lines to the spec section.
        nciserver.impactcore.instancesNamePrefix : <your instance name>
When the cluster starts, the instance is named <your instance name>_<number>. The <number> cannot be altered.
