Custom driver - donwloading device configuration via scpOpen in a New Window

Hello everybody,

we have devoloped a custom driver that makes use of scp to download configuration to NA; actually the scp command is run over the device specifing NA as destination.

This used to work on windows; now we moved to Linux where SSH server is builtin and the scp transfer fails.

The user being used to connect to NA is the one configured in "FTP and SSH Device Access" section under

     Administrative Settings -->Device Acccess

That user is "not" configured as a user on the Linux box.

What should be done in order to have this feature work on linux?





Can non-defaut be used in HPNA for SSH serverOpen in a New Window

Hi NA Experts,

Need your help. In HPNA, Is there a way we can set non-default/alternate port for SSH server so that thiere is no impact on SCP copy and scp copy should work on 22 port. I tried changing the ssh server port to 8022 in Administrative settings->telnet/SSH - SSH server section. but when I change the ssh server port then scp copy via scp is failing.

Appreciate your  quick response.





HPNA Custom Telnet Connected StringOpen in a New Window

I am trying to create access to a device a connected to a console server. I have everything figured out but the telnet connection requires us to press enter in order to connect to the device. There is an informational message I wanted to use as a prompt to let HPNA know the device is connected and to run the command script I have setup. The first line in the script is a carriage return.  Anyone know how to change the telnet connected string for device access? I tried using the field in the Bastion Host configuration but that isn't working. I believe I need to use one of the custom setting fields in the Device Access Settings but I need to know what the name of the setting is. (The setting from the Bastion Host "Telnet Connected String" doesn't work I tried it ;-)


Any help would be greately appreciated!


Network devices interfaces count in UP/DOWN stateOpen in a New Window

Hello All,

We are currently looking into a way to provide a report for support team to output a small table containing:

1. Device Name;

2. Device IP;

3. Number of interfaces UP;

4. Number of interfaces DOWN.

After a first look we are able to use only 'sh ip int br | count up/sh ip int br | count down' command and its output, which is ONLY available on IOS versions > 15.0 (Cisco). 

Is thee any way to create same report for any Cisco devices in HPNA out-of-the-box or the only way is to run some custom script only (e.g. Perl)?

HPNA policy compliance check for port security enabledOpen in a New Window

Will HPNA will report on which interfaces on a switch fail the policy compliance check?
We wrote policy compliance checks that test for port security and got numerous failures on numerous switches.
From what we can tell, it tells us what switches failed but not which interfaces on these switches failed.

HPNA drivers editOpen in a New Window


We all know that there is updated driver packages available on HP website for HPNA. Drivers for each vendor come in *.rdp files, possibly some JS scripts, combined in one file. Also, there is a NDS tool available to create own driver.

The question I have - is there a way to open (decompile) HP-provided driver file? I need to re-build new driver for F5 based on current one HP provided.

Any instruction if this possible - much appreciated.

I have written a policy that matches correctly when tested but when it use the auto-remediaton script, it applies it to all interfaces and not just the ones that failed.  I tried modifying the script and checking variables and it appears all right but maybe I am calling the config block that failed incorrectly?

Has anyone been able to get synchronous mode working for things like discover driver?Open in a New Window


I've recently started experimenting with NA's different run modes in the cli/api, but I'm not having any success with the synchronous run mode. Upon attempting to use this run mode, the task will just immediately fail with HPNA saying that the task did not complete. Has anyone else had any luck with using this feature?

NA>discover driver -ip -runmode synchronous
GEN_FAILURE: Task with ID 640911 failed. This task did not complete.


HPNA 9.22Open in a New Window

Hello All,

We are running HPNA on 9.22.02 64-bit version and often see following:


Admin->Task_Load shows we have 2 tasks running;

Tasks->Running_Tasks we have 0 tasks running at the same time.

If someone has crossed the same issue, Is it possible to see which tasks keep HPNA occupied or is it just a cosmetic bug of this current version?

HPNA overrides host nameOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

I have a issue with my NA 10.20.

I added some devices with an import, all the devices are referenced in th /etc/hosts file and when I launch the Resolve FQDN Task I get the right host name.

But when I run a Take Snapshot task (or an other similar task), the hosts name is often changed even with the adjustable_option.rcx file modified with the "<option name="FastLookup/Hostname"></option>" line.

Does someone understand where does this behaviour might come ?


Thanks in advance.

Cisco devices port-channel statusOpen in a New Window

Hello All,


We have a basic goal - to create a report in HPNA on annual basis of port-channel statuses on CIsco devices and send it to a interested parties via email. We are mostly interested in port-channles, which have interfaces in DOWN/SUSPENDED/INCONSISTENT states, which should be outlined in report. 

Is it possible to provide such information automatically upon generation of a report?

Can you please point me to a documentation how to create it and run on annual basis?
