We had the 400 version of Tivoli.  Spent major dollars in having IBM
consultants on site for months trying to figure it out.  Basically got a
reduced rate because no one there knew how it worked either.  Went a third
of a million dollars over budget that year on consultant fees.  Never
really got it fully implemented.  Now we have the NT version of Tivoli.  I
use the capability to take control of other's PC's all the time.  Some
people compare that function to PC Anywhere.  Let me tell you, it is great.
I don't use the rest of the functions yet.  It may not fall into my job
description.  I think we negotiated a deal because we had the other Tivoli
product.  My boss hit hard and I think he set it up so that others can get
the trade in also.

We are looking to replace Tivoli IT Director with a new product (since
Tivoli have withdrawn IT Director) and are examining our options.  Does
anyone have any recommendations for a product that has similar
functionaility and offers the scope to be able to manage/monitor NT,
AS/400, Netware, routers, SNMP etc?  One of the potential options is SMS
but we are largely unfamiliar with the product.  As as result I have some
questions that I hope somebody may be able to answer.

Does anyone use SMS in an AS/400 and NT environment?  Does anyone know what
SMS can get from an AS/400?  What sort of SNMP trapping can it monitor or
is it just Node Up/Node Down?

Kind Regards & Thanks
