17 users require the Normal role for write permission.
What is the purpose of the BufferSize probe property (common to all probes)?
It tells a probe the maximum number of alerts to buffer before flushing them to the destination ObjectServer(s).
IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus V7 4 core components are being installed on a server running 64-bit SUSE Linux. The server hardware consists of 8 CPUs (2.4 GHz), 16 GB RAM, and 2500 GB disks. The software will be installed using the Typical installation option. The IBM Prerequisite Scanner should be run on this system to ensure what is correct on the server?
the correct hardware, operating system, and software

in the tip_home_dir/profiles/TIPProfile/output directory
When configuring a Backup ObjectServer, what are the default property values for ActingPrimary and BackupObjectServer?
ActingPrimary is TRUE and BackupObjectServer FALSE
Which two statements are true about automations? (Choose two.)
Automations enable the ObjectServer to process alerts without requiring an operator to take action.

In the multi-tiered architecture, when an event is reinserted from the collection to the aggregation layer, what is the default deduplication behavior for severity?
The Severity field is always updated on deduplication. The severity from the collection layer will overwrite the severity atthe aggregation layer.
The optional nco_security section of a ProcessAgent config file is used for what?
to configure a whitelist of all hosts that the ProcessAgent will accept incoming connections from
When should the use of ObjectServer table indexes be considered for an IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus deployment?

A company wants to integrate LDAP with the WebGUI server. The system administrator, with the assistance of their LDAP admin, have configured the system to a point where they can view groups in Manage Groups and users in Manage Users. They have assigned ncw* roles to the groups, however, the LDAP users and groups are not synchronized to the ObjectServer. Which two WebGUI files do they need to check to troubleshootthis problem? (Choose two.)
An ObjectServer trigger is configured to locate all critical events related to a very important network component. The trigger generates an event-based Accelerated Event Notification (AEN) The AEN message is sent to all users that are members of the NETWORK group. The trigger updates the event so that it will not send another AEN message for the same event. When the trigger runs and generates the AEN message there are no users that belong to the NETWORK group that have an active AEN client running on their desktops. What happens to the AEN message is this situation?
With no active clients to receive the message, the message is lost.
