Has anyone ever experienced false messages being generated?  For example, we are seeing messages arriving through the policy OSSPI-Linux-BadLogins: Failed Local login by user UserName @ HH:MM from machine HostName.  Just curious if anyone has seen or experienced this in the past and if so, why it occurs and how to resolve it.  Thank in advance!

OVepmessageactionserver restarting unexpectedlyOpen in a New Window

HPOM Windows 8.16

when we stop or restart all OV services using vpstat , the ovepmessageaction server will go down , making the status of service as stopped , however will come up again in seconds. this causes service accessmanager to keep on waiting .

My understanding is that , as the dependent service/process ovepmessageaction server is still running, access manager will fail.

How we can check the same .

Log file monitoring using OVOA 8.x agent in AIX 5.x machineOpen in a New Window

I have OMU 8.35 on Solaris SunSparc machine. One of the machines I am managing is an AIX 5.x machine. I have deployed a log file policy to read a logfile for certai strings. But I am getting an unpredictable behaviour. I have set it as "Read from last file position". But an alert comes even when there is no new entry in the logfile. The only difference here is, the logfile is appended on the top. Can this be a problem. Just fyi, we have hundreds on logile policies on the other machines and we have no problem. This is a new problem for us. Support would be appreciated.

Possible to not report an event based on time in HPOM?Open in a New Window

In OpenVMS, we have three disk member Shadow sets. At midnight each night, one member is removed from the shadow set as it will be backed up to tape later in the morning with HP Data Protector. The post execution procedure of the DP backup will add the member back into the shadow set ... rinse ... repeat ... every day.

The HPOM policy VMSSPI_MissingMember flags this disk removal from the shadow set as a "Critical event" when really it isn't in this expected circumstance.

Is it possible to not fire the policy based on time of day? ie. if this event happens between midnight and 9am, don't notify?

RIM Server IssueOpen in a New Window

Hi there,

I have a RIM server working fine in my environment and I'm using the web front end to view data from my SQL database via port 3466.

I've copied the attached SQL file to the E:\RADIA\RIS\etc\sql\wbem folder, restarted the RIS and SQL services and then run a Radia connect on a machine. There is an AUDIT package assigned to the machine and so the WBEM info is collected and then sent to the RIM server and can now be seen in the rWin32_OperatingSystem table in my RIM database.

My problem is that if I now go to the web front end on the RIM server under Detail and view the drop down 'Configuration - Summary' for that specific machine I get this:

Server Error
Tue Jun 30 16:20:31 GMT Daylight Time 2009
The server encountered an internal error when handling your page.

Radia Integration Server2.1.7+ 13/6/1999
Tcl version 8.2.2+

Send email to support@novadigm.com.


If I click on the link then I can see the info I have included in the attached error log.

I'm assuming that this is down to a calculation error and something to do with the data collated about the paging file. Other than that I am at a loss.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
