|Cabletron SPECTRUM Appendix 5: Editing Model Types for SPECTRUM|
To edit models in SPECTRUM, you will need to stop SpectroSERVER.
Using the SPECTRUM Control Panel, stop the SpectroSERVER by selecting Stop SERVER. Select OK to confirm that you want to shut the server down. The server is stopped when messages similar to the following appear in the message window of the Control Panel
Closing /usr/spectrum/SS/SpectroSERVER database... /usr/spectrum/SS/SpectroSERVER database has successfully shut down.
Status field is set to
To determine which attributes have been defined for a particular model type (in the IT Service Vision table that corresponds to that model type), from the IT Service Vision main window follow this path:
Administration ->Explore Tables/Variables -> Collector: Selected -> SPECTRUM -> OK -> select the table of interest -> Variables -> OK
Follow this path
select the variable of interest -> click right mouse button -> View Variable Properties
Check that the Kept status is
Yes for any
variable whose data you want to analyze. If it is not,
change it to
Yes. If there are attributes that you want to keep
in your PDB that do not appear in the IT Service Vision
supplied table definition, you will need to add a
variable to your PDB for that attribute.
After you stop the server, from the SPECTRUM Control Panel start the Model Type Editor by selecting
Configure -> Model Type Editor
To select the model type to be changed, in the editor select
File -> File Model Type...
SPECTRUM displays the Find Model Type window.
Type the model type name (or a string
that contains part of the name of the model type) in the
Name or Handle
field and then select Apply. SPECTRUM
displays a list of all model types that contain a match
to the string that you entered. Select the correct model
type name from the list and then select OK.
Follow this path:
File -> Examine Attributes
SPECTRUM displays the Attribute View window. The window lists all available attributes for this model type.
File -> Open Attribute...
SPECTRUM displays the Attribute Edit View window.
Loggedradio button in the
Extended Flagssection of the window.
File -> Save & Close Attr Edit.
SPECTRUM displays a warning similar to the following:
You are not the owner of this attribute. You will not be able to export this model type and this attribute later. Are you sure you want to save these changes?
This message indicates that the changes to the model type will not be saved if SPECTRUM is upgraded. The changes are only valid for this instance of SPECTRUM and its associated database. Therefore, remember which model types and attributes that you changed so that you can make these changes again if SPECTRUM updates the model type definitions.
Repeat for each attribute that you want to use from the IT Service Vision table and is not enabled for logging in SPECTRUM.
When you are finished, select
File -> Save All Changes
The editor returns you to the Model Type View window.
File -> Save to Permanent Catalog -> File -> Exit MTE
To restart the SpectroSERVER, select Start SERVER in the SPECTRUM Control Panel. Check to see that these new attributes are being logged for a model of this particular model type.
