linux version control agent not working


On our linux servers we have this error in the system management homepage log:

The mapping from /vcrepository/autoupdate to /cgi-bin/vcagent/cgi?legacyuri=/vcrepository/autoupdate for webapp vcagent is for a URL not in the webapp's purview

In the "installed software section" off the version control agent, we only see HP Version Control Agent for Linux 6.1.0-5 installed. However also hp-health and hp-snmp-agents are installed.

:#; rpm -qa | grep hp

In hpsim, these servers are displayed with a minimum of information. No information like Firmware And Software Revision is displayed.

hp-healt, hp-snmp-agents and hpsmhd are running...

Can anyone help me with this?

Re: linux version control agent not working


check VCA (version control agent) log for any message for failed inventory, and what is the Linux target systems, are they Virtual Machines?

Dose SMH (system management homepage) show hardware and software information status properly with SNMP data source?

Re: linux version control agent not working

Check the footer of the system management homepage for detail instruction to be sure that your agent could work. I just saw a system which had only some document like icons in the SMh after an upgrade. But you should see One big green Icon and depending on the hardware configuration a bigger number of small green Icons. The error was in the /etc/snmpd.conf file which had missing entries for the hp-snmp-agents. After recreating the snmpd.conf file we saw the green normal icons.

From the error message I also guess that the repository server is not set in the vca on the SMH. We saw significant delays in SMH page display under Windows system if sombody changed the repository server or his dns entry without adapting the agent settings.

Re: linux version control agent not working

Thanks for your help. Finally, the solution appeared to be an error in /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf:

"dlmod cmaX /usr/lib/"

must be

"dlmod cmaX /usr/lib64/"

on 64 bit systems.

We missed the fact that we were trying to copy an existing configuration from a 32bit system to a 64bit system.
