Hi All,


We have a prospect that is interested in, or curious about the potential for creating a NMS gateway that will forward NMS events upstream to Netcool console.   The prospect's preferred approach is to use the Tivoli Event Integration Facility (EIF), which would likely mean that NMS would need to re-format the NMS alert structure into Tivoli slot-oriented reception log format so that the EIF could conveyor-belt it into Netcool.


If anyone has any relevant annecdotes or experience in this area, please let myself and Kevin Lambert know.
