3 Using the Cartridge

This chapter provides instructions for using the Oracle Communications Network Integrity MIB-II UIM Integration cartridge in Network Integrity.

Creating an Import MIB-II from UIM Scan

The Import MIB-II from UIM scan imports and models simple network management protocol (SNMP) logical devices from Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management (UIM).

To create an Import MIB-II from UIM import scan:

  1. In Network Integrity, create an import scan, as described in Network Integrity Online Help.

  2. On the General tab of the Create Scan page, do the following:

    • From the Scan Action list, select Import MIB-II From UIM.

      The Scan Type field displays Import.

    • In the Scan Action Parameters section, leave all the fields with their default values.

  3. Make any other required configurations.

  4. Save and run the scan.

    The logical device model is created for each device and used the deviceGeneric and interfaceGeneric specifications.

Populating UIM with Discovered Data

This procedure describes steps to populate UIM with network data discovered by the MIB-II SNMP Discovery action that is included in the MIB-II SNMP cartridge.

To populate UIM with discovered network data:

  1. In Network Integrity, configure a MIB-II SNMP discovery scan with Discrepancy Detection enabled.

  2. Run the discovery scan.

    The scan generates one entity+ discrepancies for each device.

  3. Right-click on the discrepancies you want to populate into UIM and select Correct in UIM.

  4. Click Submit.

  5. Verify that UIM is populated with the discovered data.

  6. In Network Integrity, configure and run an import scan.

    The import scan imports data from UIM.

  7. Run the discovery scan.

    The scan does not detect any discrepancies and UIM should now contain discovered data.

Performing Ongoing Reconciliation with UIM

Before you perform this procedure, ensure that:

To perform ongoing reconciliation with UIM:

  1. In Network Integrity, run the import scan.

  2. Run the discovery scan.

  3. Select the discrepancies and correct them in UIM.

  4. Submit the discrepancies for resolution.

  5. Run the import scan.

    The import scan imports data from UIM.

  6. Run the discovery scan.

    The scan does not detect any discrepancies.
