By default the DBSPI-3277 looks for all cancelled (3277.1) and failed (3277.2) jobs.  How can I go make filters in dbspicfg to exclude specific jobs from monitoring (and not the entire set of jobs),

Also can someone please provide me the link for DBSPI configuration guide?

Does anybody have an experience using HP Operations Agent 11.15 or agent 12.01. We are currently using agent 11.14, but, we like to stay somewhat up to date on patches.

We're looking to begin the rollout of 11.15 and I was wondering if anybody has run into any pitfalls. We are currently running theagents with OMW 9.20, and we are planning a migration to OMi 10.10.

Series of NodeDown alarms in OM consoleOpen in a New Window

Hi All

We use NNM for network device monitoring and if any device is not reachable NNM generates NodeDown alert which will be sent to OM server.

NNM and OM is installed in one network and the network devices are in another network. There are lot of firewalls between NNM and network devices. If one of the firewall is taken for outage, NNM is not able to reach all devices and it fails thus flooding lot of alarms in OM.

Is there any way we can suppress the alarms in OM when one of the intermediate firewall is taken for outage.

Close event by groovy scriptOpen in a New Window

Hi Gurus,

I wrote a script which takes an event and verify the category. If the category is "Test" the event should be closed/archived/deleted/iqnore. In any case, It should not be seen in the Active Event Browser.

I try to use the remove() function, but that generate a error.  - No signature of methode: com.hp.opr.comon.epi.EpiEventImpl.remove() is applicable for argument types: () values: []

Which command is the best for me to use for not processing the event to the Active Event Browser.

Best regards,

ECA External PERL agent 12.01 opcecaOpen in a New Window

OMU 9.11

Agent 12.01 on RH 6.4


I have loaded a 12.01 agent to support SNMPv3 notifications.  I'm testing a simple eca external perl function.

Everything works ok except opening FileHandle or return values using backticks or qx..  The function returns with a null value.  The same function works loaded on an 11 agent and when run outside of the correlator on the 12 agent server.



Anyone with any ideas?

Thanks Rob

Pattern matching unexpected result on SNMP_InterceptorOpen in a New Window

Hi All

I am working with OML 9.2 , i am facing the issue in the pattern matching when i am working with SNMP_Interceptor.
The server "vm1" send a trap to OML, in a varbind $4 there is this line: "alarm.VmCPUUsageAlarm - Metric CPU Usage = 77%" , now in a template condition $4 i put this "^alarm.<*.text> - <*.metric> = <*.num>".

I expect that in the variable <text> there is only  "VmCPUUsageAlarm", but i see this "VmCPUUsageAlarm - Metric CPU Usage = 77%".

Am i making any error on the pattern filtering for OML9.2 version?

What could be the reason for this?

P.S. On OMU 9.1 everythings works fine

Thanks in advance


Testing oVA to connect to VMwareOpen in a New Window

We have the oVA installed ( based on agent 11.11 ) and all is functional from the agent oVA side.  When I deploy policy such as the VI-VMwareDCDataCollector or VI-VMwareHardwareHealthCollector I get the error 

Scheduled action VI-VMwareHardwareHealthCollector(1111.0)(Perl) for user 'default' failed.

Now.. what is the default user this is speaking about?  Since the scheduled task is using perl I can't change who it runs as on the system.  Is it not using the same account the oVA is configured to connect to the vCenter with?  If not... where do I set this user information?  

The policy looks like it was written with the (VI) Perl Toolkit from VMware but none of the files I can find in the VI instrumentation folders have any reference to a "default" user or any user at all for that mater.  

Thanks for any insight. 


Upgrading to OA 12 changed file permissionsOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

I have a customer who recently upgraded to OA 12 and noticed the following file permissions changed.  Support indicates this is the default behavior of the upgrade. This is a problem now in that the customer has to go to each agent and reset persmission to that file.  Anyone know of way to work around this or make it easier to change 1000+ agents?  Thanks!

the permissions on /var/opt/perf/parm changes as seen here:
xxx-xxx-100# /opt/OV/bin/opcagt -version

xxx-xxx-100# ls -l /var/opt/perf/parm
-rw-rw-rw- 1 oracle dba 8715 Aug 23 08:23 /var/opt/perf/parm

xxx-xxx-100# /opt/OV/bin/opcagt -version

xxx-xxx-100# ls -l /var/opt/perf/parm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root bin 9149 Aug 23 08:36 /var/opt/perf/parm

Installing OpenView Agent as a Non-root UserOpen in a New Window

I need to install the OpenView agent to monitor software on a system where I have no root access.  The host is a securely managed environment in which I am limited to a sandbox where my application will run.

I have read several posts on this subject spanning 10 years and 5 different versions of OpenView.  The answer has always been: it is not possible.  However, I need to use OpenView to monitor 50 hosts and I am compelled to delve into this topic again.

Once the installation is complete, I will run the OpenView agent processes as an unprivileged account.  Ideally, I'd like to use the same account for the installation.  I will run the agent on a port above 1024 so that there is no conflict with network constraints.  I understand that the agent will have a limited view because it is not running as root.

Setting aside the fact that the first thing the installation script does is check to see if you're root, I need to understand *why* root access is required.  What is it that the installation script is doing to the file system and/or operating system that requires this level of access?  Generally speaking, forcing any install script to run as root should be a red flag given the potential for unseen activities going on under the covers.  Is there a detailed accounting of these activities?

The 50 hosts that I need to monitor are RedHat Enterprise Linux RHEL and are essentially identical.  As a potential solution, would it be feasible for me to install the software as root on one of the hosts and then copy files to the other hosts, changing configurations along the way?

Any thoughts and suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks, Brian
