Re: Run availability Analyze GUI on local TP

Sumant,

do you have a X-Server running on your laptop (something like eXcursion) ?

First test basic DECwindows display capability using RUN DECW$EXAMPLES:ICO after setting the display (assuming 10.22.164.52 is the IP address of your laptop). If this fails, you need to start and/or configure a XServer on your laptop.

If it works, you should try AVAIL/ANA.

Re: Run availability Analyze GUI on local TP

Sumant,

These errors have nothing to do with the PC, they're errors from the program running on OpenVMS. You don't even need Java on the PC, just a working X server (like Reflection X).

To check your X connectivity, use the same SET DISPLAY command, then:

$ MCR DECW$EXAMPLES:ICO

This should display a bouncing icosahedron on your laptop. If it doesn't work, post any errors you get.

That said, a MUCH better way to display Availability Manager information on a PC is to install the new Availability Manager SERVER on your OpenVMS system, then run the analyzer directly on the PC, pointing to the server to get the data. This takes the (significant!) Java load off your OpeNVMS system. To do this, install HP Availability Manager V3.0-2 or higher on your PC. It will install its own Java JRE.

Install AVAIL_MAN_BASE and AVAIL_MAN_ANA_SRVR on your OpenVMS system.

Re: Run availability Analyze GUI on local TP

I'd echo John's thoughts - Forget AvailMan on the VMS system. Run the server there and install the PC version of AvailMan on the PC. The VMS version (in my experience) runs like a dog.

Hi Steve & Jones,

While downloading AvailMan of windows version its asked for a license.Let me know if any license needed on windows side...if yes then i think i would not be able to install it.

Re: Run availability Analyze GUI on local TP

Hi,

I have installed HP AvailMan and configured vms node in the last -Server Local host and port is 9819 but its throwing error connection refused.

Local host i have given a vms node ip address.

Is this clear to anyone else? To me, it's
like mud.

"connection refused" is the usual text for a
UNIX error, ECONNREFUSED (61), which is
typically caused by trying to talk to a
service which is not running (or configured
to run). On a VMS system, it normally looks
like this:

ALP $ telnet /port = 9819 alp-l
%TELNET-I-TRYING, Trying ... 10.0.0.9
%TELNET-E-CONNFAIL, Failed to connect to remote host
-SYSTEM-F-REJECT, connect to network object rejected

If you're seeing a real "connection refused"
message, then, I assume, it's coming from
some unknown program on some unknown non-VMS
system when you try to do some unknown thing.

> Local host i have given a vms node ip
> address.

To me, that's about as clear as the first
part.

Re: Run availability Analyze GUI on local TP

Sumant,

did your read the Availibility Manager installation manual and user guide ?

If your laptop is not on the same (extended) LAN as your OpenVMS systems to be monitored, you need to set up a data server on the same LAN as your OpenVMS systems. And then you need to set up security keys as described in the user guide.

If your laptop is on the same LAN as the OpenVMS systems, you just select the network card of the laptop and don't specify a nodename to connect to. AMDS uses it's own protocol on the LAN.

Re: Run availability Analyze GUI on local TP

Good Morning Volker,

I have some doubt since we have more 30 VMS nodes in the same n/w and on all the nodes avail server is running.Let me know if i select my laptop lan card then which server will run here.I have few production nodes also so i am bit afriad if anything goes wrong then.

Re: Run availability Analyze GUI on local TP

OpenVMS I64 does require a license for Availability Manager. This license is loaded on OpenVMS. The required license is included with recent OpenVMS Alpha releases, either with the clustering license or with the base OpenVMS Alpha license.

If running Mac OS X as your client, then load X11 off the Mac OS X distribution DVD kit, launch X11 and enable security to allow an incoming connection from the OpenVMS node you want to monitor (this can include dropping some of the firewall rules), issue the SET DISPLAY command on OpenVMS, and then launch ICO.

If you're on Linux or *BSD as your client, configure X11 to allow an incoming connection from the node you want to monitor (including the firewall), then issue the SET DISPLAY command on the OpenVMS system to be monitored, then launch ICO.

If you are on an OpenVMS "client" with DECwindows loaded, configure the DECwindows session manager to allow an incoming connection from the node you want to monitor, then go to the (other) OpenVMS box and issue the SET DISPLAY command, then launch ICO.

ICO is here used as a connectivity test.
