About the .view structure file in Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server 5.0

You must know about the Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server .view structure file if you update business views using the command line interface.

If you update business views using the command line interface, you update the structure of a business view by modifying the .view structure file.

The .view structure file defines the structure of your business view. It specifies the name of your business view and the name of each level in the business view hierarchy. It also specifies the object types that the view supports. It uses the .ini file format. Comment lines start with either the ';' or '#' characters.

The business .view file requires the following sections:

[Business View] section

The [Business View] section specifies the name and description for the business view. The section requires the following parameters:

  • Name

  • Description

[Level] sections

The .view file includes a series of required [Level#] sections. A unique section in the business view definition file represents each level in the hierarchy. [Level1] defines the top level. [Level2] defines the next level in the hierarchy, and so on. Level numbers must be consecutive.

Each Level section requires the following parameters:

  • Name

  • Description

[Object types] section

The [Object types] section is required and a single required parameter named "Types." This parameter is a comma-separated list of the object types that the view supports. You can only import the following types of objects; all others are ignored.

  • Array

  • Cluster

  • File System

  • Host

  • NAS File System

  • NAS Share
