Get Installed Services from SA on unixOpen in a New Window


I'm trying to get hold of the installed services running on a host via an OO flow call to SA. I'm using flow 'Get Installed Services'  (/SA [1.2.2]/Library/Integrations/Hewlett-Packard/Server Automation/Servers/Get Installed Services) from HPSA content pack v1.2.2.

When I run against a windows box it works fine and returns the service list but against our redhat host I'm getting the error 'Could not find any installed services for the given server' despite services being there and viewable though the inventory in HPSA client.

Looking at the event history for the host in SA it shows the following....

Started shared saved script '' version 'opsware.60.3' as remote user 'root' at remote path ''

When this script is run direclty on the host it returns the running processes, so not sure why the OO flow does not.

Any help appreciated. thanks.


CSA 4.7 and OO 10.60 Password Provider Strange behaviour in debug mode.Open in a New Window


I have an issue that I have double checked, I know, it has not any reason to be, but I have tried on purpose several times.

I have run a CSA flow as normal request, it failed, from Studio I have fixed the problem and run in debug mode of course connected with Central.

It failed for authentication problem of the provider.

Double checked the password in the provider definition, it was ok.

Set the password as static property inside the flow and it worked from Debug

Remove the password from the static property, use the password from get provider properties as usual, create the CP and import into Central and it worked!

So it seems that when you run CSA flows in Debug mode also if you run them in Central the provider password is not managed correctly, but only in Debug.

Any one have the same experience?

Thanks for any suggestion.

HPOO Standard Operation to Run script against Device GroupOpen in a New Window

Is anyone aware of or can point me at a standard operation in HPOO to run a script against a device group?

All the operations we have looked at require server name / id(s) for scripts. But other things like software policies can run against device groups.

|f there isn't one, is there some nuance to HPSA device groups that I am missing which makes this impossible?

Note: OO 10.5 and contents packs I think are these::

  • Cloud 1.4.0
  • Business Applications 1.2.0
  • Databases 1.1.0
  • IT Operations 1.1.0
  • CSA 4.20.0000
  • SM 1.0.1
  • SA 1.2.0
  • Virtualization 1.4.0
  • HP Solutions 1.4.0
  • Cloud Orchestration 1.1.0
  • Middleware 1.1.0
  • Operating Systems 1.2.0
  • Utility Orchestration 1.1.0
  • Base 1.5.10-SNAPSHOT

vmware advanced search to get folder pathOpen in a New Window

Has anyone tried using this to get a full folder path for a vm?

i.e My input is a folder mor and I want to get the full path to pass to a vm operation. 

Right now I'm using a powercli operation which can be a little slow. But when I've tried to use the advanced search it returns child folders. 

e.g propsType - Folder

propsPathset - name,parent

propsRootObjType - Folder

propsRootObj - group-v12345

So it will return the folder name if no children are present but if children are present it will return all of them. It kinda makes sense based on the description on how the operation searches but I'm hoping I've made a mistake and theres an simple way to make it only return the name of the current folder and parent property.


Problem with pageSize in Get Flow Schedules operationOpen in a New Window


I'm trying to use the operation Get Flow Schedules inside the HPE Solutions content pack to access all of the schedules of a flow, but this step is just getting 50 schedules. I saw on the API_Guide.pdf document, that the default value of the page size is 50, but if I add the input pageSize to the operation, still gets just 50 schedules. Does anybody know how to change pageSize in that operation?



Add/Remove Workers RAS by Automation OperationsOpen in a New Window


I'm implementing the automation to execute the restart of services from RAS servers, and I created the logic to verify services running, apply stopping and start and take care for the RAS executing context don't kill your own service (I'm use the variable the Override Group $overrideNRAS for this) , but I need remove this RAS server from the Workers topology before the stop services, for the I don't have none flow executing for this server.

So, how I can to add and remove the RAS server from workers by command line or by operations from OO studio.

note: my infrastructure OO is based Microsoft Windows Server 2012.

thanks for your help.
