HPSA Solaris reboot job not completing.Open in a New Window


Need some help with rebooting solaris systems in HPOO through SA. The issue is that the job that does the reboot does not end and will continue to run till it times out and during this time the server is unavailable for any other operations through SA. I've tried both the inbuilt HPOO reboot operator and sending adhoc commands (SA content pack) with same result. This only happens if the server is set to boot to a new boot environment. Has anyone come across this issue or might know why this is happening?

I'm using Solaris 10 and the OS is new to me.

Step connector... How to remove the "auto curve" when connecting multiple results to a step?Open in a New Window

In OO 9.07, when you connect a step with multiple results to another step... there is a way to overlap the lines so when you move the step to a new location, the connectors just follows as one string line "overlapped". In OO 10.70, in the same case as mentioned above, the step connectors automatically separates with 1 straight line and 2 or more curved lines by default... the problem with this is when you move one of the connected steps... then you have to reconnect again to make it look organized... I am using OO 10.70 now and i want the same behavior to happen like in OO 9.07 where I can overlap step connecting lines... Any tips please... thanks in advance :)

Help with scriptletOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

Trying to use a scriplet in the configuration to get the current date and time which is stored as a variable and I run into this error. Have tried to check for the meaning of the error but can't seem to find it. Capture.JPG

For reference, my script is as follows


I'm not sure whether its how I'm trying to call the script or whether its my script itself that's the problem. For now, I'm only trying to debug and will get this error. I couldn't find the flow variable at all which was why I was trying use the debug but got that error.

Just to add on, I have clicked the "Check Script" option which returns me a "No errors found." message.  

Thanks in advance for any help!

Generate email to continue a processOpen in a New Window


I am migrating a process workflow from CA's ITPAM to HP oo and need to configure it. My current process in IT PAM is as follows.
1) Someone submits a url via a form for a self-created application which writes the url into a txt file.
2) This starts the process which branches off into 2 parallel lanes
3) Lane 1 will read the file and generate an email which contains a link to continue the process which is then sent to a list of users.
4) Lane 2 ensures that only approved users (who have logged into ITPAM after clicking the link in the email) can continue the process (as how to continue the process is via the clicking of the link in the email).
5) Steps 3 and 4 join back together to continue the process.


My questions are
1) How do I generate the email which contains a link to continue this specific process pending a users action.

2) How do I set the list of approved users who must log into hp oo to be verified as an approved user who is able to continue the process?

I understand that I am able to accomplish at least part of my questions via a gated transistion but I can't seem to find a working example of a gated transistion. Any help with my questions or with supplying a working example of a gated transisiton would be much appreciated!

Passing inputs to a flow in HP OO CentralOpen in a New Window


i'm trying to call a flow saved in my HP OO Central server. I'm using REST call from my own website through a plugin. This plugin is developped in php. So, when sending a request to HP OO Central, i should specify the uuid in the content body of my request with a json format. I tested a local ping flow and everthing works as i expected.

Now, I want to add inputs needed to run the flow, other than the uuid (exp : url, auth token ..).

How can i pass flow's inputs into a http POST request please?
