1 Overview

This chapter provides an overview of the Oracle Communications Network Integrity MIB-II UIM Integration cartridge.

About MIB-II UIM Integration Cartridge

The MIB-II UIM Integration cartridge provides discrepancy detection, discrepancy resolution and import functionality for integration with Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management (UIM). Using the MIB-II UIM Integration cartridge, you can quickly integrate arbitrarily discovered management information bean (MIB) MIB-II data with UIM.

The cartridge imports MIB-II devices from UIM and supports extensibility where custom scan parameters are required for selective import of data. The import action allows logical device trees in UIM to be imported to Network Integrity for comparison of objects with discovered data.

The cartridge detects discrepancies in MIB-II SNMP discovery results in a UIM context. The discrepancy detection action provides the mechanism to allow a filtered comparison of logical trees between data that is discovered and data that is imported from UIM.

The cartridge resolves MIB-II SNMP discrepancies into UIM. The discrepancy resolution action allows the discovered logical device trees to be created and updated in UIM. For more information about discrepancy detection and discrepancy resolution, see Network Integrity Developer's Guide.

See Network Integrity UIM Integration Cartridge Guide for information about the operation of the Web service and its dependencies.

Opening the Cartridge Files in Design Studio

To review and extend the MIB-II UIM Integration cartridge, you must first download the Oracle Communications MIB-II UIM Integration cartridge media pack from the Oracle software delivery Web site:

The media pack contains the MIB-II UIM Integration cartridge ZIP file, which has the following structure:

The UIM_Cartridge_Projects and Network_Integrity_Cartridge_Projects folders contain the extensible Design Studio files.

See the Design Studio Help and Network Integrity Developer's Guide for information about opening files in Design Studio.
