1 Introduction to Connector

The IBM Tivoli Enterprise Console (TEC) Connector (version integrates Oracle Enterprise Manager with IBM TEC through web services, enabling you to forward Enterprise Manager events to TEC system. Using this connector you can create, update or close events on TEC system for any event generated in Enterprise Manager, which ensures an active synchronization between TEC and Enterprise Manager.

1.1 Event Templates

Event templates are XML transformation style sheets that map Enterprise Manager event attributes to TEC event attributes.

The TEC event connector contains predefined event templates for create and update event operations on the TEC system. These templates can be customized further to accommodate more requirements. Oracle recommends that you back up these factory-built templates before customizing them.

Refer to Chapter 5, "Working With Event Templates" for more details

1.2 Retry

The Retry section, available on the connector configuration page, allows users to specify whether failed operations need to be retried within a configurable expiration time.

Enabling the Retry option gives users the option to specify whether they want to resend an event request if the request fails the first time and the time period after which they want to give up the retry. Enterprise Manager retries every five minutes until the request is successful or the retry interval expires.
