Can SSSU be installed on any remote computer other than management server?


Hi everyone,
I'm building a tool wherein i can add the hosts to HP EVA(add host/ add port)using the SSSU. But for testing i want to know if i can install the HP-EVA's SSSU utitlity on my remote machine or it can only be run on the management server..
1)can i take the sssu exe and install on any m/c.
2)Also are there any License issues?

Regards
Vineet

Re: Can SSSU be installed on any remote computer other than management server?

SSSU can be installed on any remote machine which can talk to the SMA (EVA Management Station). There shouldn't be any license implications in using SSSU on a remote machine. Let me know in case you need any further details.

Thanks & regards

SSSU can be installed on each other hosts.
It works over an IP connection

SSSU > select manager (IP of Manager) ...

First of all...Thanks for the response guys..

Now what i want to know is once SSSu is installed how can i make it contact with the actaul array and start running the commands..
Like if its on the Mgmt sserver then i can directly issue commands( "Addhost", "add folder") etx but now what all settings i need to do for this kind of set up when SSSU is on some remote computer..?

Hi Vineet,

before adding the host, you will need to select the management station which is managing the EVA. For eg from SSU prompt, first you will need to type:

SSSU:>select manager

Once the system is selected, select the EVA and then proceed to add the hosts.

Thanks Rajeev
So in my tool first i can ask the user to enter the
1)ip of the mgmt server
2)username
3)password

Second i need to select the EVA (is it by using the EVA's Ip Address or how can we do using the SSSU commands for my tool)?

B'coz then only i can formulate my command and execute it.. :)
Then i can actually formulate the command, which wud be in the form like i wud like to run it as .BAT file.As my tool will be in VB

Vinni,

Each eva has o unique name on the management server of you can see it on the display of the EVA.

After you are connected to the management server with SSSU, you can select the eva based on the EVA name

Here is the manual

Ps : points are always appreciated

Re: Can SSSU be installed on any remote computer other than management server?

Hi,

The commands syntax would be:

1> To select the SMA (or Management Station)
SELECT MANAGER USERNAME=
PASSWORD=

2> To select EVA from mgmt station

SELECT SYSTEM

Where is EVA name provided during initialization

EVA doesn't have any IP address as it doesn't have an ethernet interface.

Re: Can SSSU be installed on any remote computer other than management server?

hi Rajeev and everyone

See now once i have installed SSSU on my remote computer.. now i want to run the commands here on SSSU to add host now...
wat all should be the set of commands in sequence that i should run so that i m able to add the host to HP- EVA.
im asking these questions because as of now i dont have access to the HP EVA but wud get in next week.
till that time i have to create a batch file which wud consist of those commands(in sequence) so that i can add my host once i have access to HP_EVA
Thanks

Re: Can SSSU be installed on any remote computer other than management server?

Hi Vineet,

As mentioned in my earlier posts, the sequence of commands would be:

1. To establish connection with SMA

2. Select EVA from SMA incase multiple EVA's are managed on SMA

3. After selecting the EVA, use the PWWN and NWWN of hosts to add the host to EVA.

The user guide sent earlier should help you to structure the commands.

Thanks
Rajiv
