Error description

  • * ENVIRONMENT     :
    AIX 6.1
        ITNM 3.8 FP04 ---- failover with NCIM replication
    While deleting active polling policy on the primary, the
    MonitorPolicies.<DomainName>.xml synchronized OK on the backup,
    but not synchronized in backup ncmonitor database, where
    the active polling policy remains and could generate polldata
    if primary server down.
    

Local fix

  • Disable the active policy on the primary first and then delete
    it. But the disabled policy remains in the backup NCIM database,
    which has to be deleted manually.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When a poll policy on Primary domain is deleted, it still    *
    * stays on the Backup domain, so when the Primary domain goes  *
    * down, the policy might become active on Backup causing wrong *
    * polls                                                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * as a workaround, delete the policy manually on Backup when   *
    * it is deleted on Primary or install APAR IZ99325             *
