CVSDM 1.07 arm commands password

Hi,

I have installed Command View SDM 1.07 on one of the Windows boxes. GUI is just working fine with the default username and password. But when I use the arm commands it throws an error message as follows,


C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>armdiscover
This could take several minutes ...
HP 18.2G-ST318452LC \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0 3EV00PLD hero102my.com
HP-A6189A \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE5 00SG10900421 hero102my.com siva1
HP-A6218A \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE1 00SGR0005086 hero102my.com siva2

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>armdsp -s siva1

Login failed, you are not authorized to access this system.


C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>

Is there any switch/parameter using which we can specify the username/password in the command line?

Pl. help.

Thanks,
Karthik S S

Re: CVSDM 1.07 arm commands password

Karthik,

the -p option specifies password on many of the arm commands (IE '-p AUTORAID' if the password is AUTORAID [the default])

Do you have commandview setup on any other systems on site?

I went through a long support session with HP on a VA7410 with commandview 1.07 when I tried to set up CV on both partitions of an rp7410 to manage the array, and they walked me through some steps, but in the end the engineer said that I shouldn't try to manage the array from two different servers, as the event logs may get sent to either one at random.

What are the chances...

Joshua,

Thanks for the Info. But the command still doesn't work with the -p option. I believe -p is used to specify FRU location.


C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>armdsp -s siva1 -p administrator

Login failed, you are not authorized to access this system.


C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>armdsp -s siva1 -p AUTORAID

Login failed, you are not authorized to access this system.

Also CVSDM is installed on one of the HP-UX box as well. But since these are test arrays I dont bother about the events being redirected randomly to either of these boxes.

Re: CVSDM 1.07 arm commands password

Hi Karthik,

In a command View installed on a HP9000 box, i do have a file called /opt/sanmgr/commandview/server/config/PanConfigParams.txt

and got something like SECURITY_ENABLED=false means you needn't supply the password.

Had to restart the diald daemon in HPUX for this to take effect. I think something definitely corelates in NT/2000 too.

with best wishes
