The new IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Virtual Environments Agent for Citrix XenApp includes a optional TEP-based logical navigator that can installed to provide greater visibility of metrics across multiple XenApp servers.
As seen below, the default Navigator View (Physical) represents the physical hierarchy of the managed systems being monitored in the ITM environment. Since the new Citrix XenApp agent is installed locally on a per XenApp Server basis, monitoring many XenApp servers can provide some challenges:
Importing the new optional Logical Navigator views allow managed system data to be displayed and aggregated together in other, more business-relevant ways.
Importing the logical navigator
C:\Users\Administrator>tacmd login -s localhost -u sysadmin -p password Validating user... KUIC00007I: User sysadmin logged into server on https://localhost:3661.
T:\agents\kxaagent\kxaagent_710\ga_refresh\ITMfVE_XenApp_Application_Support \Logical_Navigator>tacmd importnavigator -x kxa_logicalnav.xml -s localhost -u sysadmin -p password KUICIN001I Validating user credentials... KUICIN003I Reading XML and converting to custom navigator view... KUICIN012I The custom navigator view "XenApp_Details" already exists on the server. Do you want to delete the existing child nodes for the custom navigator view, and import the custom navigator view "XenApp_Details" to the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server on http://localhost:1920? Existing user assignments for the custom navigator view will be maintained. Enter Y for yes or N for no: Y KUICIN013I Deleting child nodes for navigator "XenApp_Details"... KUICIN004I Writing custom navigator view to the server... KUICIN005I Writing queries to the server... KUICIN021I The queries for the custom navigator view were successfully imported. KUICIN006I Writing workspaces to the server... KUICIN022I The workspaces for the custom navigator view were successfully imported. KUICIN020I The custom navigator view "XenApp_Details" was successfully imported from the file T:\agents\kxaagent\kxaagent_710\ga_refresh \ITMfVE_XenApp_Application_Support\Logical_Navigator\kxa_logicalnav.xml to the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server on http://localhost:1920. The navigator view import operation did not assign the imported navigator view to any users. If the navigator view already existed, the existing user assignments were preserved. The tacmd editUser command or the Administer Users dialog can be used to assign the navigator view to a user.
tacmd edituser -u sysadmin -w password -i sysadmin -p NavigatorViews=physical,logical,XenApp_Details
After running these commands, refresh the TEPD or TEPW to view XenApp details in the logical navigator window.
