Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

Hi Experts,

I would like to know how to configure the EVA management server if the OS had been reloaded.

My windows administrator had re-loaded windows 2003 on this system and am not sure what other software are to be loaded.

I have command view EVA 3.3 for this system. Is there a checklist to configure the generic management server on windows 2003 for EVA? if so, I would like to read the same.

I am worried about the WBEM, is there anything specific to be loaded for enabling the Web based element manager.

I tried searching at HP site, but am not able to find any conclusive information. Hence I am relying on your experience to guide me.

As usual, you will be rewarded with points.

With regards,
Mohan.

Re: Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

There is a manual with instructions on the CV-EVA V3.3 CD-ROM. I don't have it handy, but if I recall correctly, it's in a subdirectory.

Re: Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

No, Alisgar,
this is about a non-SMA management server. There is not restore CD available for a stock server. You don't have the OSM framework on such a system.

The SMA has never been a 'standard' DL380 server. SMA I and II have been DL380, SMA III a DL360, but they had a different serial number range so that the restore CD does not work with a stock server. That is for warranty control. And the OS is a stripped-down Windows 2000 Advanced Server, not 2003.

Re: Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

Hello Aliasgar,
it is my understanding that you need to set up the server with SmartStart or put the Management Environment onto it before you install CV-EVA, but the second one I have never tried. Perhaps somebody else can add his/her experience.

Re: Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

Hi Uwe and Ali,

Thanks for your response. As UWE said, this is about non-SMA system. Since my windows admin saw that it come with windows 2000, he took it upon himself to load windows 2003 :-)

Now for the more specific problem, I have installed the command view. But when I try to connect to the EVA through SSSU, I get the below message

EMCLIENTAPI_PERMISSIONDENIED_ERROR : Invalid username or password

The username/password I use is administrator/administrator.

these are the steps I am doing,

1) invoke sssu
2) select manager username=administrator password=administrator
3) select system eva

after the third step I get the error indicated earlier.

The array is visible from Commandview but I need to use this sssu as well.

With regards,
Mohan.

Mohan,

which version of the management agents is installed? Beginning with V7.20 it uses the Windows Administrator's password.

Re: Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

Hi Uwe,

It is 7.20. I have tried the administrators password as well. It does not seem to work.

meanwhile I found that the windows 2003 standard edition is loaded. The pre-requisite says it has to be windows 2003 Enterprise edition SP1.

I guess, I will start all over again with the windows 2003 Enterprise Edition and check.

BTW, is there any steps to reset this password used in sssu, if it is different from administrator password?

I found the prerequisites in the CV-EVA 3.3 CD under the directory "documentation". The information is available in installation and configuration guide.

Meanwhile if there is any other information is available, I welcome them.

With regards,
Mohan.

Re: Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

You could try a fix that is described in the "HP StorageWorks Command View EVA V4 installation guide" on page 17:

Re: Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

Hi Mohan,

one more hint ,the versions of sssu and command view eva are matching.

Re: Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

Hi Uwe,

Thanks a billion for the timely help. The fix you indicated in the installation manual was the solution.

I had installed windows 2003 EE and command view 3.3. The same problem was coming as the smartstart 7.20 was in picture.

Once the elmsetup was run to reset the password, I am now able to access the sssu.

I could assign 100 points to UWE, if possible.

Ali, Thanks for your time as well.

With regards,
Mohan.

Re: Requirements for EVA management server on windows 2003

That's good to know, thanks for the update, Mohan.

I have set up a system with W2003 (no EE) earlier this year and ran into similar problems: could not properly initialize the EVA, so I never tested SSSU. The document wasn't available then and I was a bit in a hurry, so I set everything up using 7.10.

Glad I could save you some time, so my problem was at least good for something ;-)
