Is it possible to setup a rest policy for an OM Agent? Or can this only be used on an OMI Connector?

BSM Connector for OneView Not Collecting Events because of Authentication ErrorOpen in a New Window


We have Installed BSM Connector 10.01 and installed the OneView Connector for BSM "HP BSM Connector for HP OneView, Version 02.00.041"
Installation is succesful and policy activation also successful.
But Its not able to collect any events or topology from the OneView. The reason is its not able to authenticate. We have provided the correct credentials. We are using the same credential with Cloud Optimizer as well as with HP UCMDB. For UCMDB and CO the same credentials are working. Only with this BSM Connnector Its showing authorization failed. I am attaching the logs from the Connnector System.
What we are suspecting is, BSM Connector is not using https protocol for connecting to the oneview API's. Also It doesnt have any mechanism to accept the security certificate from oneview at time of authentication

Let me update here what i am suspecting the root cause of this issue. I can see lua script snippet as shown below.
First of all its using always http request to connect to OneView API. I dont think it will work in that case. Next Is certificate issue, one view is https configured and it always requried certificate that needs to be accepted. Another issue is with api version, i can see its hardcorded in beginign of script as version 3. Is it same for the lates version of Oneview 2.0 which we are using. In UCMDB we have the same user configured and its working and it also works based on API. But in UCMDB it has option to always accept certificate to true and also api version set as 4. please chec these things aswell.

-- Create the login request
local req = http.request()
req.method = http.HTTP_POST
req.path = "/rest/login-sessions"
req.header["X-API-Version"] = _M.apiVersion
req.header["Content-Type"] = "application/json"
req.body = json.encode({
userName = self._settings.username,
password = self._settings.password
req.host = self._settings.hostname

Event forwarding to IPcenterOpen in a New Window


I need to forward events from HPE OMi to IPcenter (by IPsoft). There is more than one way of doing this. E.g. Events can be sent in JSON format.

Does anyone have any experience/solutions on this type of integration ?

Policy parameters in an "Event from Perl Script" type of policyOpen in a New Window


Is it possible to use policy parameters in an embedded perl script source of an "Event from Perl Script" type of policy?

I've tried simple assignments like

my $file = "%%File%%";

and the syntax used in perl based threshold logic of Measurement Threshold policies i.e.

my $file;
$file = $OVOSystem->ParameterGetString("File", "%%File%%");

However, I always get the "The following parameters defined in the parameter list are not used in the template policy editor..." when saving.

Best regards,





BSM Connector - OMi Custom AttributeOpen in a New Window

Hello Support,

i am working on BSM Connector 10.x, integrated with OMi 10.10 and OneView 2.0 in order to monitor HP hardware platform and get related events.

When new event has been received i notice that sometimes (but not always), four specific custom attribute has been

added, in particular:

NAME SourcedFromIaManagementProtocol VALUE http

NAME SourcedFromIaManagementPort VALUE 8081

NAME SourcedFromExternalId VALUE OneView: /rest/alerts/6840

NAME SourcedFromDnsName VALUE http <BSM Connector FQDN>

I confirm these CA has not been defined into BSMC Policy, consider as well that same events has been forwarded to BSM platform.

Do you have any suggestion about it? Could they be created by the OMi<->BSM Integration? I would like to remove them, because they are not needed in my environment.

Can someone please help me to get the correct Related CI, Node and Source CI information? 

Is there any way to see related log files for error?

HP OMi - Time field information for alerts is not shown properly when time zone is set to "[GMT -4]"Open in a New Window


I am using below version of HP OMi and Operation Connector for my Domain Manager.

1. HP OMi - versions 10.12

2. Operations Connector - 10.11.

I have set time zone as mentioned below. 

1. HP OMi Console -> [GMT-4:00] Chile Time (America/Santiago)

2. HP OMi, Operations Connector, and Domain Manager box -> (UTC-04:00) Santiago

I am forwarding an event to OMi through Operation Connector from my Domain Manager. For Alerts received in HPOMi console, the time is not matching for the fields Time created, Time First Received and Time Received value as per the set time zone . Below mismatch is observed.

Time created -> -2 Hrs difference [Ex: Expected:12/19/16 03:26:58AM Actual:12/19/16 01:26:58AM]

Time First Received and Time Received value -> -1 Hrs difference [Ex: Expected:12/19/16 03:28:37AM Actual:12/19/16 02:28:37AM]

Similar behavior is not observed if time zone is set to below values.

1. "[GMT-7:00] Mountain Standard Time (MST)" in HPOMi console and  "(UTC-07:00) Mountain Time (US & Canada)" in HP OMi, Operations Connector, and Domain Manager Box.

Can someone help on this.

Thanks & Regards,

OMI To OBR Topology Sync Not collecting OAgentsOpen in a New Window

The OBR to OMI topology sync is successfully running and in the Topology log I am showing that many of the views are being brought over, However the OAgents are not showing up as data sources. According to:
HPE Operations Bridge Reporter
Software Version: 10.01
Windows® and Linux operating systems

"If you configure HPOM or RTSM as the topology source, you do not have to create new
HP Operations Agent data source connections. Because, by default, all the nodes on
which HP Operations Agent is installed are automatically discovered when the topology
information is collected. These data sources or nodes are listed in the HP Operations
Agent Data Source page of the Administration Console."

This Is not happening, And i cannot find any documentation for troubleshooting this issue.

  • which are the supported configuration?
  • Is there any best practise or configuration guide about it?

How can i solve the problem.

Thanks in advance..
