CDE Settings Report OBR Server Down?Open in a New Window

Ok, after I finally solve the riddle of CDE Server not working, I logged into console as admin/admin and proceed to "Settings" as directed by manual.  I plugged in NetBIOS Name and it reported "OBR Server is Down".  Now clearly it is not down (but is is SSL) as I can reach BI Portal, Admin Portal, CMC.  So I tried FQDN... again OBR Server is down.  So I tried IP Address, LocalHost, httpS://ObrServerName, http://ObrServerName, with and without BI Portal Ports, and on and on and on. but still no joy.  What am I missing with this?  I feel I am getting so far 'down in the weeds' that I will soon forget why I am even trying to install the CDE in the first place.

Best regards,



CDE Server Does Not StartOpen in a New Window

Good day Experts,

I am using OBR 10.02 and attempting to develop my own Content Pack in order to better facilitate Multi-tenancy by possibly leveaging CI Collection Views from our OMi 10.12 Server.  As a means to that end I downloaded and installed HPE OBR CDE 10.01.000.  I ran the "deploy" and saw "node.js" configured successfully.  Now when I got to start the server (http://localhost:3000) via the "Start.bat" file a new cmd window was opened with nothing more.  So I looked at "Start.bat" (Word Wrap is Off) and I saw that it should be creating logs as well.  Those logs never get created so I am assuming there is a problem with this batch file not running/completing correctly.  Mainly just curious if there are any issues being reported with this. 




OBR .connection server is not startingOpen in a New Window


We have OBR 10.02 installed in a distributed setup with OBR + BO on one linux server , and Vertica on another. I was getting this erro - "Illegal access to the viewer, please use a valid URL", while running any WebI reports, so when I look  into the CMC , I see that

1. OBR.Connection server is in "Starting" state

2. OBR.WebIntelligenceProcessing Server is in "Failed" state

3. OBR.InputFIleRepository and OBR.OutputFileRepository show an amber health status

And restart of these servers did not help, I have cleared "Enable Memory Analysis' and "Enable APS Service Monitoring" , to no avail.

Can someone suggest what could be wrong here?

I was unable to deploy SA_CP_10.00.004 on OBR 10.10 server.






Incorrect Availability Data in OBROpen in a New Window

Dear Experts,

We were getting report for one agent based nodes in OBR, for some issue we formatted the node and did not installed OA agent for next 12 hours but here in OBR we see availability data for that node from the point where agent was not reinstalled.

We started complete formatting activity of that server around 2am so after 2am there should be no data in OBR but we are getting data from 7am onwards and we installed agent back to that server around 5 pm.

Many Thanks

Past 7 days or past week reportOpen in a New Window

Hi Experts

We have installed OBR 10.01 on Linux machine. (standalone)

We just want to know whether OBR has a default option for Past 7 days or Past week report. When i take any report (out of the box) i dont see any option for taking past 7 days, i have to take custom range and then manually select the dates. This way we are unable to schedule the reports. How can we achieve this? Is this default behaviour?


Sticky Bit failure?Open in a New Window

Hello! I am trying to install OBR on RHEL 7, Typical install, and all prerequisites pass except for the "Sticky bit for Ping command Check".  I get this:

Executing initialize action : Sticky bit for Ping command Check
[Failed]: #ERROR: Sticky bit is not set for /bin/ping. You must set and run the
installation again.

But I have set it.  Here it is on my system:

[root@scobrp01 OBR]# ll /bin/ping
-rwsr-xr-t. 1 root root 44896 Jun 5 2015 /bin/ping
[root@scobrp01 OBR]#

I never had to deal with the sticky bit before, I set the +t and the +s there, but the test still doesn't pass.  What is the installer checking for?  How can I make it pass?

Configuration Wizard not getting past "Create Vertica Database"Open in a New Window

Hello!  After a successful installation of OBR 10.10, I logged into the Admin Console using the default password, changed it successfully, and now I am stuck at the Configuration Wizard.  I set the Timezone, then fill out all of the fields for the Vertica Configuration - this is a Typical install and the Vertica DB will be on the same server, Redhat 6 - and nothing happens when I click the Next button.  I get a quick flash of the circular wait icon, but nothing happens.

I have tried Chrome and IE, shut down pop-up blockers, and tried it from another machine, no luck.  Nothing happens.  Anybody see this?  i have installed OBR before and this did not happen.
