The network operation center has two groups of users that use the native desktop. One group, OPERATIONS, requires access to the standard event management tools like acknowledge and delete. They also require access to some custom tools for things like basic troubleshooting (ping and telnet) and ticket creation. The second group, NETWORK, requires access to the same tools used by the OPERATIONS group users In addition, there are a few tools used for advanced router diagnostics that they use. These tools are not to be available to the OPERATIONS group users. To minimize administration efforts a common desktop menu is used for both groups of users. The users in the OPERATIONS group use Windows desktops to run the native desktop application. What is the technique used to ensure that they only run tools supported on Windows?
all of the tools used by the OPERATIONS group are configured to limit access to only Windows systems
Which two directories should be backed up before the upgrade in place from IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus (Netcool/OMNIbus) V7.3.1 and TIP V2.2 to Netcool/OMNIbus V7.4 on a Redhat Linux system? (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.
Which statement is true if an ObjectServer work time exceeds its granularity?
The ObjectServer is overloaded and may fall behind in some of its tasks.
If UNIX authentication is used by a ProcessAgent, which check is made for any incoming connection to be accepted?
The user must be a member of the ncoadmin group (or whatever the -admingroup property is set to).
Which utility can be used to export ObjectServer event data?
Which two actions are required when configuring a CGI script to use via a WebGUI tool? (Choose two.)
ensure the script is executable
save the CGI script on the Web GUI server in the $NCHOME/omnibus_webgui/etc/cgi-bin directory
When an Accelerated Event Notification (AEN) is received by the AEN client, a message is displayed on the user desktop. That message contains data from several columns in the event record used to generate the notification. How are the column names used in the pop-up message configured within the AEN client properties?
The Column data settings in the Channels tab defines how the columns appear in the message.
A company has a virtual pair of ObjectServers with the primary located in New York (ny.fqdn.com 4100), the backup in Sacramento (sac.fqdn.com 4100), and the WebGUI is in San Francisco (sf.fqdn.com 16311). The administrator has these requirements: The administrator has created the SmartPage in <TIPHOME>/profiles/TIPProfile/installedApps/TIPCell/isc.ear/OMNIbusWebGUI war/SmartPages/index html.

An ObjectServer has been set up to create checkpoint files, and a utility is available to check the validity of the checkpoint files. Which command checks the files?
Which two statements are true about automations? (Choose two.)
Automations enable the ObjectServer to process alerts without requiring an operator to take action.
Automations can be used to detect changes in the ObjectServer and to run automated responses to these changes.
When configuring a Backup ObjectServer, what are the default property values for ActingPrimary and BackupObjectServer?
ActingPrimary is TRUE and BackupObjectServer FALSE

What is the difference between the hash and tree database index structure?

WHERE Severity=3 and (Summary like`link down'or Summary like`Link Down');
What is the only environment variable that has to be set to start the Display ObjectServer?
Which action informs an end user when an event flood situation is detected?
implement Accelerated Event Notification to ensure that the detected event flood situation is displayed to operators asquickly as possible
Which indexes exist on the ObjectServer alerts.status table by default?
two indexes; one consisting of the Serial and one consisting of the primary key ServerName and ServerSerial
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
Which properties must be available in the probe to configure peer-to-peer failover?
Mode, PeerHost, PeerPort
A company has a requirement to archive events to their historical archive IBM DB2 database Which IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus gateway should be used for this purpose?
What is the recommended solution delivery mechanism for Native Event List tools, prompts, and menus?
They should be packaged up using nco_conf pack.
Which statement is true about a temporal trigger?
It is executed repeatedly based on a specified frequency.
ViewWidgetcom has deployed this 3-tier standard multi-tier architecture deployment of IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus V7.4 (Netcool/OMNIbus) using the best practice configuration that ships with the product: WebGUI is to be deployed into the environment. The Aggregation and Display layer ObjectServer details are added to the WebGUI server's data source definition file as a single data source In order to implement automatic load-balancing for connecting WebGUI Active Event List clients, into which ObjectServer table should rows be inserted?
no rows need to be added to any ObjectServer table

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.
