2.3 Summary of the Enhancements included in this Fix Pack.


  • • Significant improvements have been made to reduce report run times, as well as, reduce memory consumption; on the Impact
    Netcool Operations Insight (NOI) processing logic.

    • Two new commands have been introduced in nci_policy:

    show - Is used to show all currently running policies in the Impact server

    kill - Is used to kill an out of control running policy in the Impact server

     


    • New “maxloopsize” property is now available in the <NCI>_server.props. This property limits the number of times a policy can loop
    to avoid Out Of Memory conditions with rogue Impact policies.
    • impact.policy.maxloopsize=50

    • Support for Windows 2016 is now available.

    • Note 1: Before installing FP, the user that is installing impact must be given full Administrative rights to the impact directory. Right click on impact directory and select Properties. Select Security Tab, select the user and give them Full Control, Modify, Read & Write permissions. Otherwise the health checker may fail.

      Note 2 : The install should be run from the Administrator Command Window, otherwise the install will not run.

      Note 3: Scripts under the impact/bin directory, need to be executed from an Administrator Command window; otherwise, an “Access
      denied” message will be displayed.

      • Support of Multi-tenant for UI Data Provider

Prerequisites

Installation Instructions

  • IBM Tivoli Netcool/Impact 7.1.0.12 can be installed on all previously installed fix packs, including 7.1.0.4 refresh.

    For those migrating from previous releases (5.1.1 or 6.1/6.1.1), you can install Impact 7.1.0.4 Refresh, apply this Fix Pack and then migrate directly to 7.1.0.12.
    The following table contains a list of files included in this Fix Pack and operating systems associated with these files:
    Platform File
    AIX 7.1.0-TIV-NCI-AIX-FP0012.zip
    Linux 7.1.0-TIV-NCI-LINUX-FP0012.zip
    Solaris 7.1.0-TIV-NCI-SOLARIS-FP0012.zip
    Windows 7.1.0-TIV-NCI-WINDOWS-FP0012.zip
    zLinux 7.1.0-TIV-NCI-ZLINUX-FP0012.zip

    all platforms * 7.1.0-TIV-NCI-FP0012.README

    Note: The installer only works for 64 bit architectures.

    Note 1: If you plan to install 7.1.0.12 from Passport Advantage, the version of Installation Manager on your machine should be 1.8.3 or higher. Older versions of Installation Manager (1.7.3 for example) will not work, as they do not support the TLS protocol.

    Note 2: Starting with Impact 7.1.0 Fix Pack 10, a new utility is now available (and run automatically right before the update; unless the update is done via the Passport Advantage repository!). This new utility is the Impact server Health Check utility! This utility will perform an overall Health Check of Impact, prior to allowing the update installer to continue with the update. The utility is also available as a standalone utility; which can be retrieved via the following url:
