HPE EVA P6000 Data Warehouse without Adobe Flash

Hello.

According to the notice from HPE (https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=a00098979en_us&docLocale=en_US), work with the HPE EVA P6000 Data Warehouse is possible only through the Firefox browser. But support for the Adobe Flash technology used when working with this repository has ended (https://www.adobe.com/ru/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html).

How can you work with HPE EVA P6000 Data Warehouse now?

Yes, I've tried using ruffle, but it doesn't support ActionScript 3, which is required when the P6000 Command View starts. I also tried the Lightspark project (https://github.com/lightspark/lightspark) but the result is the same, the Command View hangs when I run it.

Re: HPE EVA P6000 Data Warehouse without Adobe Flash

I'm in the same boat. Ruffle doesn't support ActionScript 3 yet.

I've managed to get partway by creating an mms.cfg file, and placing it in C:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash, as described in
https://blogs.sap.com/2020/12/10/how-to-keep-enterprise-flash-applications-accessible-in-2021/

 

EOLUninstallDisable=1
SilentAutoUpdateEnable=0
EnableAllowList=1
AutoUpdateDisable=1
ErrorReportingEnable=1
AllowListUrlPattern=https://<ip address>:2374/

 

 

CV now loads the flash content, but the login prompt is shifted way over to the right, almost entirely off the screen. The usual login button is disabled, and there's a message in bold red text underneath that begins "Conne"

I seem to recall having a similar issue before, which I'd usually circumvent by logging in to port 2373 first then launching CV from there, but that trick doesn't seem to be working either.

Any suggestions?

This is some serious BS HP for what is still supposed to be a supported system.....

I'm going to log a ticket and see what comes back as the official answer.....probably pony up for a $25k Harmon license but until then I've managed to get this working by using a combination of:

- the mms.cfg file highlighted here and on the SAP blog

- Firefox ESR

- an old NPAPI Flash plugin - v21

I've allowed ESR to patch itself up to 78.6.1esr to see if that broke anything and so far its OK.  It's latest ESR and for now I've killed any further auto-updating.

The old plugin would be harder to find as I happened to have it lying around from a legacy SCCM deployment.....I doubt there are any official sources to get that from anymore.

Anyway I hope that helps somebody else as the mmc.cfg stuff did me

Last part is you have to untick the plug-in option:

"Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content"

Ancient Command View EVA is now accesible again

if you have a contract for P6000 HPE can give you the Harman solution. Ask HPE support.

Hope this helps!

Re: HPE EVA P6000 Data Warehouse without Adobe Flash

Hi,

I got it to work using the following software:
Firefox 84.0.2
Adobe Flash Player 32.0.0.465

First, I added TraceOutputEcho=1 to mms.cfg to see which URLs were blocked.
Then I navigated to https://<ip address>:2374/SPoG and looked for blocked URLs in the Firefox web console.
When I found a blocked URL, I added it to mms.cfg and restarted Firefox.
After this, everything worked fine until I restarted the server.
It turned out that 2 of the TCP ports were assigned at startup.
So I navigated to https://<ip address>:2374/Configuration and entered static ports for Unsecured Web Service Port and Secure Web Service Port, saved the changes and restarted the service.
I used 8080 and 8443, make sure the TCP ports are not used by anything else.

My mms.cfg looks something like this:

EOLUninstallDisable=1
SilentAutoUpdateEnable=0
AutoUpdateDisable=1
EnableAllowList=1
ErrorReportingEnable=1
TraceOutputEcho=1
AllowListUrlPattern=http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/
AllowListUrlPattern=https://<ip address>:2372/
AllowListUrlPattern=https://<ip address>:2374/
AllowListUrlPattern=https://<ip address>:2376/
AllowListUrlPattern=https://<ip address>:2386/
AllowListUrlPattern=http://<ip address>:8080/
AllowListUrlPattern=https://<ip address>:8443/

 

Regards,
Nicklas

Looks like....and the answer for those still using this product that hasn't reached EOSL who aren't paying for support.....

"

Any customers with inactive contract coverage requesting this package will need to consult with an HPE Pointnext Services sales representative about resuming contract coverage and required Return to Support coverage.
