I have a custom Perl probe creating alarms. This works fine running on a modern 6.x Nimsoft. The client has deployed it to a version 5 NMS with nas 3.72, now all the created alarms are invisible. This is not what they want.
Does anyone know of a significant change from nas 3.72 to the 4 series that could do this? Did the visible slot move from the full data to the udata somehwere along the line, or does the alarm pre-processor add in visible by magic if it is not yet there?
all inspiration welcome.
