Technical advances in multivendor network management capabilities allow customers to effectively manage their networks. Packaged offerings such as NetView® Extra simplify the ability to take advantage of these new capabilities. This paper describes the multivendor environment, customer network management requirements, IBM's initial approach to responding to these requirements, and enhancements needed to provide additional management offerings that automatically handle failures, including detection, bypass and recovery, vendor notification, and restoration of the repaired resource into service.
