Netfinity Manager database support
Netfinity Manager supports the collection and export of a
vast amount of system-specific data to a Netfinity Manager
Netfinity Manager databases can be created on database
management systems using DB2®, Lotus Notes®, or
Microsoft SQL. Microsoft SQL is supported through open
database connectivity (ODBC), and is available on systems
running Netfinity Manager for OS/2, Windows 95, or Win-
dows NT. If the system supports ODBC, the user can access
and export DB2 data through ODBC as well. Once support
for one or more of these databases has been installed along
with Netfinity Manager, data can be exported from these
Netfinity Manager services:
• Alert Manager
• Software Inventory
• System Information Tool
• System Profile
• System Monitor
Information on how to install and configure support for data-
base export follows.
• If support for DB2 database export is being installed,
see “DB2 database support”.
• If support for Lotus Notes database export is being
installed, see “Lotus Notes database support” on page
• If support for ODBC database export is being installed,
see “ODBC database support” on page 93.
DB2 database support
Support for DB2 database export is automatically configured
during installation of the Netfinity Manager. However, the
database system itself must be configured. Instructions for
configuring the database follow.
A raw data dump to a file is also available and will run with-
out a database.
