Modifying the value of the opensafImmSyncBatchSize attribute in the OpenSAF IMM
service object 'opensafImm=opensafImm,safApp=safImmService' currently requires
the PBE to be disabled. While this is not a big problem, since changes to this
value would be rare, it is a problem that should be easy to fix.
The IMM service implements its own "OI" in a way that is not quite normal.
some logic resides in the IMMND server while some logic resides in the PBE
process and only gets executed if the PBE is enabled. The latter follows
the normal OI communication paths (the main task of the PBE process is not
that of handling OI requestsdirected at the IMM service).
Currently the OI implementation for the IMM in the PBE is simplistic, rejecting
any and all updates to the OpensAF IMM service object.
This needs to be done:
1) The PBE based IMM OI should perform validation and accept modifications
that make sense.
2) When PBE is disabled, the IMM server should catch updates that would
normally have reached the PBE and at least perform sanity checks.
