HPE OneView for Azure Log Analytics (v1.4.0) - "ARM Template is not valid"

Hi,

I am attempting to add the above solution to my Azure tenancy but I am receiving the error "ARM Template not valid" after entering the workspace and linked automation account.

I have attempted on two tenancies now as first I thought it might be a lack of permissions on the subscription.

It seems the solution itself is just an ARM template that is deployed using the ARM API, can anyone confirm they receive the same error?

Thanks in advance,

EDIT: For reference, 1::20 onwards in the below video shows how this is done and where I am getting the error:

I believe that we (HPE) have encountered this due to some changes that Microsoft made with how partner ARM templates get deployed.

I am checking with my engineering team to see if there is a workaround. Otherwise, I do know that we are working on an updated release of the ARM template that would fix this issue.

Thanks,

Doug

Thanks Doug,

I assumed it wasn't something specific to our tenant but it's good to have confirmation, I'll wait for your response

If it isn't something to be fixed soon I'll see if I can make some temporary dashboards once I get data flowing through

I just confirmed that there is no workaround for now.

The on-premise HPE PowerShell module will get the raw data into Log Analytics, so you can create your own custom dashboards as a temporary fix.

The next release that will fix this is probably a few months out.

Thanks Doug,

Would the team possibly be able to provide the JSON (or JSONs) for the dashboard by extracting it from the solution itself?

I've found the below but it is 3 years old and I don't trust myself to strip out the relevant parts:

GitHub - HewlettPackard/HPE-PowerShell-for-Log-Analytics-Module: Provides Azure Automation runbooks to drive collection of information from instances of HPE OneView to populate Log Analytics repository with information for on-premise infrastructure.

 

EDIT: An up to date copy of the runbooks would be handy too if possible?

Thanks,

Can you download the ARM template?

The file you are looking for is "HPE-OneView-for-Log-Analytics-Template.json"

That contains the info to create the dashboards (e.g. donuts, lists, etc.) and also contains all of the  Queries and Saved Queries included in the solution.

The runbooks on GitHub might be the old original ones.  I would check for the "HPE PowerShell for Log Analytics Module v. 1.4" at https://www.hpe.com/downloads/ovpartners  which should have the latest runbooks (which are really just PS scripts).  The info in the videos is accurate about using the runbook scripts to automatically generate the data.  The PS module runs on-premise and talks to OneView and Synergy, and then pushes the data into Log Analytics.  Those should still work fine.

The issue we have is that Microsoft changed the way ARM templates work, which broke ours.  So the data can still get into LA, it's just that our predefined dashboards are broken.  But if you create your own dashboard, you can use the queries in the above mentioned json file to capture the same data we were getting in out dashboard.

In case you need the latest docs, here are the links:
