I have a question relating to DCAA that needs your help.
After changing the host entry, DCAA web console was not opening. Customer is able to get the web console of CSA, and they are able to access SA via OO.
How to change the Hostname?
Appreciate your prompt response.
Thank you and Best regards.

This year, we’re completely revolutionizing HPE’s Data Center Automation (DCA) suite!
DCA 2017.01 is part of a continuous evolution towards a suite solution that unifies infrastructure management across infrastructure tiers and simplifies the consumption experience. We’ve brought infrastructure management under a single entitlement framework. Customers now have the flexibility of consuming and scaling the suite solution across different infrastructure tiers, without the need to manage licensing for individual infrastructure ecosystems. We’ve also introduced stand-alone compliance. Customers can run compliance independently, without having to coordinate complex scheduling with resource-heavy data center tasks such as provisioning and patching. This is the advantage of modularization - capability consumed freely, by itself, and scaled on demand. Lastly, in the theme of efficient infrastructure management, we’ve added an analytics pillar, starting with analytics-driven capacity and performance optimization for virtualized environments. Based on near real-time data, customers can right-size their VM environment, forecast capacity needs and intuitively identify any bottlenecks.
In short, the DCA suite is a unified infrastructure management solution to automate tasks, orchestrate IT processes, enforce compliance and optimize infrastructure.
Register for our upcoming webinar – “Data Center Automation: A new year, a new suite” here and learn more about how this new offering will revolutionize infrastructure management.
Is there any documentation describing how to upgrade the 2016.01 version of DCA to the new 2016.10 ?
Thanks a lot,
I have just installed DCA express edititon as a VMware image. When I installed it, I got the usuall questions (IP address, root password and such), but not for the admin password. I even deleted the install and ran it again, but the admin password question is still missing. And now I'm unable to log on.
Any ideas as to how to fix it?
When the next DCAA version will be released ?
we are facing a serious issue in the DCA 2016.1 Premium solution.
The following environment:
1. We cannot use dhcp, since this is filtered on the customers network
2. We have to use the (in the DCA) build-in SA version 10.21 for the ESXi Installation
Due to the network restrictions we have to use the following parameter:
with a content like this:
This one is attached to the iLO Object we setup in the unprovisioned server section in the SA Client.
Now we are starting the deplyment process and the iLO restarts the Server (Step 3 in the ProLiant OS - ESXi 5.5 U2 Scripted Install Buildplan).
The Proliant starts into the Intelligent Provisioning and thent it times out after the 20 minutes preconfigured delay.
I assume that the Intelligent Provisioning 2.4 and 2.5 are not supported from SA 10.21
Here is the output of the error message in the Job Log:
Step 1 of 20: Run OGFS Script 'Validate Gateway Setting for Static Network Configuration'
/opt/hp/hp-phoenix/scripts/ae.xml: loaded successfully
Does anybody seen a similiar issue in the past or does someone know what the error code means?
I already configured the Intelligent Provisiong by hand with the above mentioned IP Address and i can ping it from the SA Core. But during the SA Deployment i cannot ping it!
We have alreday opened a service call at HPE, but we are trying and trying since three months anround that without any remarkable step forward!
Many thanks for your support and ideas in advance.
Innovators keep their fingers on the pulse of what’s next and for some time now they have had their sights on containers as the “next big thing”. Skeptics have been on the fence about this technology for a few years now. They have been saying things like, “it’s only for developers” and “it’s just a sandbox tool”. However, as a result of more and more production use cases coming up this year, containers are really getting out of the sandbox and into the building.
Players like Netflix™ and Uber™ have been pioneering this new technology, which makes sense because both are not only trend setters but also have created very disruptive technologies. If you’re looking for scale, fluid delivery, extremely fast upgrades and the ability to re-use effort throughout your organization—Containerization and Microservices are likely something you are looking at utilizing. Hewlett Packard Enterprise has been working very closely with Docker to help create our next generation of products. Not only can you use our HPE IT Operations Management Software tools to design and deploy containers-based services and their infrastructure for day one deployment, we also empower you to monitor the health and compliance for those applications once placed out in the real world in day two and beyond.
If by any chance you were not able to attend Discover this time, you can also watch the live stream of the The future belongs to the fast, transform your business with IT Operations Management session from anywhere in the world.
So let’s all grab our shovels and get to work.

we have DCAA 16.10 that has CSA 4.7 in the appliance , we have Vcenter Compute Capsule there we have edited it with some of our options there and renamed the flows .
These Steps i have followed ,
The problem is that when checking the recourse offering again after i configure with the new flows it shows the path to old flows !! for example below i have configure the resource offering to point to that workflow
That's the new Workflow: [/Library/CSA Content Pack/CSA3.2/Providers/Infrastructure/vCenter/MDD/MDD-vCenter Simple Compute - Validate Input Properties.xml]
checked Recourse offereing it change automatically to old one
Old workflow [/Library/CSA Content Pack/CSA3.2/Providers/Infrastructure/vCenter/vCenter Clone Server/Validation/vCenter Simple Compute - Validate Input Properties]
My point how PDT working in DCAA!!
so after traking CSA.logs it showing that design trying to initi the old wworkflow which is not there as different UUID in OO central showing that error as following :
15 Nov 2016 08:28:39,614 [pool-21-thread-20] ERROR  ExecutorImpl : Error when executing process instance fc68a69aa69449dc996c97d93cdaf27f
We're trying to install the version 126.96.36.199107 of McAfee Antivirus For Linux, but when we make the installation, the system starts to use 100% of the CPU and then the whole system is unavailable.
In the General Notes, I read that "Antivirus software is not supported on SA cores", but I don't know if that is the cause of the problem.
We are using the Express Version.
Do you have any idea why is this happening?

Any Ideas....? Kindly help me on this issue
It's been a while since I've touched HPSA in general but really haven't dealt with DCAA yet.
I know that re-ip'ing a typical HPSA core is thin ice terriority and HPE PS and all that comes into play. HOWEVER,:
1) Does using DCAA change this in any way ?
2) Is re-ip'ing a DCAA VM doable or do the same issue/restrictions still apply ?
Thanks any for information/direction on this question.
We’re excited to share a new on-demand webinar introducing HPE’s Data Center Automation solution, and we think there’s something in it for everyone.
Are you “everyone”?
Well, if you’re in a bit of frenzy about your data center, and you wish your IT operation costs were lower (or simply not spiraling out of control) or think it would be amazing if service requests didn’t take ages to fulfill, this webinar is for you. If you wish staying compliant didn’t have to be so difficult or you’d love if shadow IT could become a nonentity, this webinar is for you. And if you dream of the clouds, but have to deal with humdrum tasks instead, this webinar is for you!
In this webinar, you’ll hear about:

After playing around with dcaa 2016.1 and browsing the forums, I got the impression that nobody is using DCAA 2016 in mission critical environments.
The OVA as downloaded from hp does not install correctly, some strange iptable rules from hp are left on the device that prevent it from starting SA properly. This leaves the impression that nobody ever tested the release.
In our testenvironment the DCAA does strange DNS lookups to nonexisting domains that probably stem from the development environment.
6 months after release of 2016.1 I still cannot select the version when opening an SR.
DCAA 2016.1 is on SA 10.20 while the standalone product is on 10.23 with many rollup hotfixes. No hotfixes are available for DCAA(?). There is still no documented upgrade procedure from DCAA 1.0 to 2016.1 available.
Is anybody using DCAA in a missioncritical environment and if yes, what experience did you make?
When installing DCAA that a trial version. When I preform the command that "/etc/init.d/opsware-sas status ",I meet a problem that " failed to peroform "startsync " operation on Opsware SAS components
I have downloaded the ova file and reassembled it as DCAA-1-0.OVA file.
When importing the OVA file in the VCenter client, it is not prompting for hostname, ipaddress, gateway, subnet-mask, etc.
I continue with this but after powering on it says hostname set as localhost.localdomain.
Am I doing anything wrong.
Breaking my head over this.
Appreciate your help.
