NA Task Schedule optionOpen in a New Window

We have a task that needs to run on the last day of every month. Is there a way to schedule  any NA task to  run on the last day of every month.

Looking at the Task Recurring Options, I see Monthly but am unsure how to properly schedule it since the last day of the month varies.




NA_log.ldf (MS SQL NA Transactional Log) Growing Too BigOpen in a New Window

This question may not be found here, but I have been reading online that the SQL transactional log should not be so big as 140 GB - recently I've run into issues with the DB server because the log file is hitting the upper limits of the drive space and simply "adding more GB's, duh" is not that simple. 

So why is it that, out of the box, the NA_log.ldf is allowed to grow to a limit of 2 TB?

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light. Perhaps that HDD requirement should be made more public.


NA movementOpen in a New Window


I am required to upgrade my NNMi and NA from 9 to 10.2. Is an direct update possible? Which one should be done first? Would NA 9x work with a later NNMi? Thanks for any answers.


EOL timeline for NA versions?Open in a New Window

Does anyone know where / if there is a doc that shows when particular versions of NA are considered EOL?  

9.x of course is, but was curious what the date is for say 10.0?  Just be nice to be able to have a target to ensure that folks know "hey, we've got to move before this date" as soon as possible.  :-)

HPNA 10.21 Command Lines ScriptsOpen in a New Window

We have a HPOO Script that creates a task in HPNA.  It worked fine in 9.07, but when we upgraded to NA 10.21 the tasks now require approval.  It did not require this approval step in 9.07.   Is there a way to auto approve a task with a script or HPOO?   Thank you.


Has anyone experimented with HP NA diagraming capabilities?Open in a New Window

Has anyone experimented with HP NA diagraming capabilities on a large network scale? I am looking to create automated Visio network topologies based on Layer 3 and Layer 2 device connections. Based on the information stored in HP NA it certainly seems capable to produce these diagrams, but every time i try to run it (based on a device) it takes upwards of 20 min to generate a Layer 3 diagram. And when it is done, it still have to use “tribal knowledge” to make sense of it all. I know there are other tools in the space that can do this task, but it seems redundant to purchase a tool that will just put a Visio wrap on the data that HP NA already collects.


Any success stories out there?


Permission ChangesOpen in a New Window

I'm trying to identify where I can update the Security Partitions permissions. I see when I look at the groups page and try to edit a partition it states that I need the permission "Manage Partition" but via the UI I have provided all possible permisisons and this still is not granted. 

Has anyone updated this and if so, where did you do it?


HPNA 10.21 SSLhandshake error to HPOO 9.07 - SSLHandshakeException: Recieved fatal alert: handshakeOpen in a New Window

We just went through a very painful upgrade to HPNA 10.21.  We will be upgrading HPOO later.

We have one oustanding issue - we are getting the following handshake error between NA and OO

SSLHandshakeException: Recieved fatal alert: handshake_failure

Any idea what needs to be changed to fix this?  is it TLS or SSL - we opened everything up for TLS 1.0, 1.2  etc..

Thank you in advance for any help!

Devices in Device Groups Enforcement Report QuestionOpen in a New Window

Is it feasible to run a SQL query or report directly in NA that would show membership of device groups?

I want to show devices that have only been added to a partition but not added to two other device groups that are necessary for organizing the infrastructure.  For an example, feel free to make up site/device group names.

Network Automation 10.2 - Configuring a Bastion HostOpen in a New Window

I am doing an evaluation of NA and am trying to set up a connection to the console port of a device via an Opengear terminal server.  The connection must use SSH.  So far I have tried several different settings, based on the information in the help documentation, but have been unsuccessful.

From a separate server, if we send a command in the following format, we can connect to the console port of the desired device after we enter the users password for the terminal server:

ssh <username>:port<port number>@<terminal server ip>

For example:  ssh user:port09@

When defining the Bastion Host, I put the IP of the terminal server, the username and password.  Then I tried to put in some of the SSH commands for host and port.  Looking at the session log, NA first connected to the terminal server using SSH (port 22), but from there it fails.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to configure this?  Thanks in advance.

Configuration Text is not fully displayed in HPNAOpen in a New Window


I have developed a drvier using NDS. i am able to successfully excute the script and take a snapshot from NDS which displays 930 lines of configuration. When i upload the same driver in HPNA, and if take a snapshot i am not able to see the entire configurations under "Configuration Text" of a device, only 238 lines are displayed for every snapshot i take from HPNA.

Previously with the same script in HPNA , i can see the complete configuration but after upgrading the HPNA to 10.20 verison the same script is not working.

Is there a change or settings done in the version of HPNA 10.20?


TFTP issue on HPNA 9.22Open in a New Window


We have an issue when binary configuration files are not saved in /tftpdroot/ folder, although it looks fine from HPNA and Linux side:


Retrieving binary configuration via TFTP

TFTP wrapper is running normally, when I am doing basic connectivity test from another Linux server via TFTP_PUT, file is normally transfered and seen in /tftpdroot/ folder as configured in HPNA settings. Also, HPNA is able to monitor TFTP server (e.g. read/write file TFTP_MONITOR), that is why status is OK in HPNA GUI.

According to TFTP wrapper transfer is OK as well:

INFO | jvm 1 | 2017/03/03 02:51:29 | {external/tftpserver} [Thread-689] 75 TftpServerConnection: WRQ Transfer Successfully Completed -

If we search for the filename - we are not able to find it anywhere on Linux filesystem. 

We have recently restarted server for patches installation, also I have tried to stop/start HPNA itself - no effect.

Did anyone seen such issue previously?
