Error when installing McAfee antivirusOpen in a New Window


We're trying to install the version 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?

DCAA and Re-IP ???Open in a New Window

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.

Is DCAA 2016.1 a fully supported product?Open in a New Window

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?

Kind Regards

DCA - OVA file not prompting for Hostname, IPAddress, etcOpen in a New Window


      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.


Best Regards,
