Table A-22 NetIQ AppManager Adapter Properties




A comma-separated list that determines which alarm columns display and the order in which the alarm items display (date/time, rule, etc.) in the Alarms view. Available alarm columns include: EventID, ParentEventID, JobID, Status, FirstOccurConsoleTime, LastOccurConsoleTime, FirstOccurTimeString, LastOccurTimeString, ObjID, MachineName, KPName, Severity, EventMsg, Occurrence, ChildComment, and ModificationTime.


Enables special extensions used with AppManager Control Center and enables the SCM job to communicate with the adapter. Default is false. Set this property to true only if you are running the NetIQ AppManager Operations Portal integration.

For more information, see the NetIQ AppManager Operations 5.6 Portal Getting Started Guide.


The name of the host on which the NetIQ data repository resides.


The NetIQ database name. The default is QDB.

If the NetIQ database is located on a named instance of a database, declare the instance name after the database name, and separated by a semi-colon:


For example, QDB;instance=SQL208R2


The DbUser password.


The port on which the NetIQ database server listens. The default is 1433 which is the standard SQL Server port configuration.


Enter a value when it is necessary to override a database connection property.

For example, some versions of SQL Server require setting AutoCommit to False, but the default setting in DbProperties is AutoCommit=true. Use DbProperties to set it to false.

To specify multiple properties, comma-delimit the name-value pairs.


The database user ID with unrestricted access to the database identified in the DbName property. The default ID is sa.


A list of views to discover at adapter startup. The default is Master, which allows the discovery of all views listed in the master. Add any additional custom views separated by a comma.


The NetIQ adapter schedules reconciliation events every x number of minutes following the completion of the previous reconciliation event. Use the Reconciliation Time property to specify the number of minutes for the time interval.

For example, if it takes 30 minutes to reconcile the differences each time and the schedule for the ReconTimer is 15 minutes, the entire reconciliation event actually takes 45 minutes. The default is 0.


Alarm column names that require Operations Center to truncate leading characters. For example, if the KPName column contains ###:NT_CPU but only NT_CPU should display, the entry is:


Use any characters as the truncation delimiter. If more then one alarm column requires truncation, use a comma to separate the field name and delimiter value pairs. For example:



A script that executes if the adapter fails for any reason. For example, the script can print the reason for the failure as msg using log.info(msg).


A script that executes when the adapter initializes.


A script that executes when the adapter starts, either manually or automatically when the Operations Center server starts.


A script that executes after stopping the adapter.
