Adding a second DataSource to a TIP or WebGUI Configuration

by Simon Barnes

To allow data from multiple ObjectServers to be visible from a single TIP add the following lines to be added to the /opt/IBM/tivoli/tip/profiles/TIPProfile/etc/webtop/datasources/ncwDataSourceDefinitions.xml file.

Note the parts in red will need to be modified.

Add the following section before the line </ncwDataSourceDefinition>at the end of the file and make a copy before starting.

<ncwDataSourceDefinition type=”singleServerOSDataSource” name=”ObjectServer” enabled=”true”>

<!–Datasource data caching –>
