Re: Installing HP OM Agent on OpenVMS Systems / How to Install OM Agents on OpenVMS systems

Hi Rajesh,

 

The second link Sekar sent you contains a chapter about how to install the agent on OpenVMS: "Installation of HTTPS Managed Nodes".

 

To manage an OpenVMS system from an Operations Manager Server, complete the following tasks on both the Operations Manager Server system and on the OpenVMS systems before you install the software:

 

• Verifying the Prerequisites on an OpenVMS System

• Configuring the Operations Manager Server

 

Then, you can install the agent following these steps:

 

1. Log in to the SYSTEM account on the OpenVMS managed node.
2. Uninstall OpenVMS DCE agents and OSSPI on the OpenVMS managed node if you have installed the software previously.
3. Create a temporary directory on an ODS-5 disk to copy the installation files.
4. FTP the OVO8-V0800-x-AXP.EXE or OVO8-V0800-x-I64.EXE installation file from Operations Manager Server on UNIX to the temporary directory.
5. To extract the installation files, run OVO8-V0800-x-AXP.EXE (for Alpha) or OVO8-V0800-x-I64.EXE (for Integrity servers).
6. Start the installation by entering the following command: $ @opc_inst -srv <management-server-name> -cert_srv <certificate-server-name>
7. Add the following line to the LOGIN.COM script: $ @SYS$STARTUP:OVO8$DEFINE.COM
8. To install the certificates manually, follow these steps:


a. Set the installation type to MANUAL by entering the following command: $ ovconfchg -ns sec.cm.client -set "CERTIFICATE_DEPLOYMENT_TYPE" "MANUAL"
b. Check if ovcoreid is set by entering the following command: $ ovcoreid -show.If ovcoreid is not set, the following message will be displayed: INFO: No OvCoreId is set.
c. If ovcoreid is not set, create the ovcoreid by entering the following command: $ ovcoreid -create.An error message "ERROR: No input stream" will be displayed that can be ignored.
d. To check whether the settings are correct, run ovconfget certificate.
e. Log in to the Operations Manager Server on UNIX as a root user and add the "coreid" of OpenVMS managed node manually to the Operations Manager Server by entering the following command: #/opt/OV/bin/OpC/utils/opcnode -chg_id node_name= <OpenVMS_managed_node> id=<coreid_of_the_managed_node>
To obtain the coreid enter the following command on the OpenVMS managed node: $ ovcoreid -show
f. Create a signed certificate and the corresponding private key for a specific managed node manually using the opccsacm command line tool. You must provide a password to encrypt the created data. Password length must be 8 characters only: #/opt/OV/bin/OpC/opccsacm -issue -file <cert_file_name> -name <managed_node_name> -coreid <coreid_of_managed_node>
g. Transfer the certificate file in a secure mode that is created to the OpenVMS managed node.
h. On the OpenVMS managed node, import the certificate using the ovcert command line tool. Specify the same password used in step e when requested. To import the certificate, enter the following command: $ ovcert -importcert -file cert_mgd_node
i. Run ovconfchg by entering the following command: $ OVCONFCHG
j. After installation, delete the certificate file from the managed node and the Operations Manager Server on UNIX.
