Error description

  • ITNM 3.8 FP5
    Solaris OS
    
    HopView URL are not working in multidomain.
    Error: Hop View URLs are not working in multidomain
    
    Customer is using multiple domains on the same itnm
    instance.Customer
    want to save the links from different hopviews in order to be
    accessed by different users via browsers.
     If the user specifies the
    seed using hostname, the first found in database, regardless of
    domain, is picked up.  If seed
    is entity ID, then it is fine because the ID is unique in each
    domain.
    
    as documented in 'Hop View URL parameters':
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v8r1/topic/com
    .ibm.networkmanagerip.doc_3.8/itnm/ip/wip/admin/reference/nmip_a
    dm_connmaphopview.html
    
    Problem: Hop View ignores the 'domain' parameter and so it does
    not work in multidomain
    environments, where the 'domain' parameter is required.
    
    To replicate try the URL in multidomain:
    https://tip.company.net/ibm/console/ncp_topoviz/HopView.do?domai
    n=NCOMS2&type=layer2&layout=hierarchical&seed=a.b.c.d&hops=2&end
    Nodes=true
    
    and you get the 'Unable to find seed' error and the Hop View
    opens for wrong domain.

Problem conclusion

  • Domain param was read in as domainMgrId, if there was no match,
    default to the first domain in the domain list.
    Change is to assume domain param is domain name, if it's not an
    integer (domain ID), and try to find the domain ID for this name
    

Temporary fix
