Error Connecting to LDAPOpen in a New Window

Hi

Trying to set up a new install and integrate with my AD for LDAP.  When i click "Look Up User" i get the following in my trace file:

java.security.AccessControlException: Validate LDAP information operation is for admins only!

Is this an issue with the admin user specified  (AD throwing the error) or is this a misconfiguration in my LDAP Properties in CO?

 

Thanks

Enabling AuthenticationOpen in a New Window

The HPCO installation guide for the virtual appliance on Page 26 states ..

"If authentication is enabled, log in using the user name and password. The Admin page
opens for the first time."

I have always installed with the "default" settings, and not aware of an option to enable "authentication".

Question 1. Is there an option to enable authentication as part of the install ?

Question 2. How does one enable authentication when HPCO is installed WITHOUT authentication enabled ?

OpenStack Instance NamesOpen in a New Window

I've deployed a Cloud Optimizer 3.00 virtual appliance to see how the product works with OpenStack (Liberty), and I'm wondering if what I'm seeing in the interface is correct.  I've added the KVM compute nodes (Ubuntu 14.04) as datasources, and have also added an OpenStack data source.  Something that I noticed though is that all of the OpenStack instance names are showing up as their name in KVM - like instance-0000005d.  I guess I would have expected a rationalization of the name to take place once the OpenStack datasource was added so that instance name was more intelligible, and I'm not sure if maybe I just have a configuration issue with Cloud Optimizer, or this is how its supposed to be?

I've also noticed that even though the OpenStack user that I've given to CloudOptimizer has access to several projects, I'm only seeing one project's worth data showing up.  I'm using Keystone v3.0, and I'm not sure specifically what CloudOptimizer is expecting.

Is there anyone that could say whether the data that I'm seeing in Cloud Optimizer is what I should expect, or should it be presenting instance names more appropriately as well as pulling data from all tenants that the user account has access to?

vPV Monitoring DataStore SensitivityOpen in a New Window

Hi

Regarding vPV monitoring of vmware... 

As i understand it I can alter the datastore threshold that vPV raises an alert to HPOV by editing the vPV_Alerts_Custom_Configuration.ini:

a. Edit the vPV-CustomAlertSensitivityDefinition policy.

b. Update RIGHTSIZE_DISK_HEADROOM as follows:

But can i apply different thresholds to different datastores ? Eg. by cluster or datastore folder, or by datastore name ?

Any help greatly appreciated

Cloud Optimizer 3.0 - unable to get stats from KVM HostOpen in a New Window

Hello,

Wondering if anyone could assist. I've installed CO 3.0 on a linux box successfully. I have been able to add two KVM Compute hosts (part of a helion openstack install) successfully. However, in the web UI the messages for these two servers never progress past "Data collection in progress".

If i check the status.kvm log file I see it make a connection, get some basic guest info and then fail due to a cAdvisor error.

I've just installed the Cloud Optimiser appliance and completed the OV integration, I have deployed three policies to the appliance 

vPV-EventMonitor

vPv-NodesDiscovery

vPV-TopologyDiscovery

Documentation states to wait until nodes are discovered before deploying

vPV-OMIntegration

vPV-AlertSensitivity

But how do I kow when the nodes have been discovered ? Should I see a populated node group in OV ?

Any help greatly appreciated

Cloud Optimizer - Linux installation issue (LVM related)Open in a New Window

Hi all,

For POC purpose I am trying to install HPE Cloud Optimizer, but the issue is that installation fails:

[Failed]: Install aborted as LVM present.

But it's not an LVM filesystem: /dev/md0 on /var/opt/OV type ext3 (rw)

 

Also, there is a similar topic on this forum, but no solution provided (advice is to raise a ticket and then get a knowledge document and a workaround script):

http://community.hpe.com/t5/Cloud-Optimizer-Practitioners/VPV-Virtual-Appliance-on-Oracle-VirtualBox/m-p/6852457#M566

Maybe since that time something changed.

 

Need your help !

Thanks in advance.
