DATA PROTECTOR: Coexistence with Operations Agent and Server Automation

The SUMA, nor any support matrix, nor technical support can tell me what version of Data Protector, the Operations Agent and the Server Automation agent can coexist on a typical Windows, Linux and UNIX server.

They all leverage the old HP Shared Component (XML), which is why I am asking.

Does anyone happen to know?

Thank you!

Hi Michael, 

Haven't heard of any issue with co existence of DP with SA &/OR OA on same physical server,  however, there could be challenges with respect to resources @ memory, disk space, processor levels, which might need enough boost.

Also, if we are thinking on lines of integrations, Data Protector currently doesn't integrate with OA / SA, however, it does integrate with Operations Orchestration

Hi Mike.

      Which 'XML component' do you have in mind specifically? I'm unable to recall any packages that DP shares with other products and more information will help me understand this better. As an example, DP uses its own Java and OpenSSL components, independent of what is installed on a given server. In that light, I wouldn't expect there to be 'cross-talk' interference but I'm open to surprises. 🙂

Thanks,

Shishir

I am not trying to integrate anything.

DP, OA and SA are all on the same machines and we see issues.

I want to know what versions of these three agents are supported to coexist on Linux, Windows and UNIX.

That's it.

Hi Mike.
I'll double check but I haven't come across any DP dependencies related to this component. With which DP version did you last see an issue in this context? Is it possible that OA and SA have issues but DP is independent of them?
Thanks,

Data Protector v10.60.0.154 and Operations Agent v.12.06.

 

2020-12-04_19-34-50.png

 Server Automation: v2018.08.

Please note the contents of the perl script that ships with the Operations Agent, to check for co-existence issues, and how both Data Protector and Server Automation are not included - I am shocked that Operations Bridge Reporter (OBR) and SiteScope (SiS) are not included, as SiS has to run a certain version of the OA to function, especially regarding integrations, and OBR comes with the OV Certificate Server (ovcs) which allows the remote poller for data collection to function, and most of the time the remote poller is not remote at all. It runs locally on the OBR Admin Server. Installation of the Operations Agent would break both of these tools.

The shared component of the OA, as per the deployment XML:

<package>HPSharedComp.xml</package>

The Cross-Platform Component of the OA, also problematic, regarding co-existence issues, none of which is in the SUMA:

<deployinvpkg>HPOvXpl.xml</deployinvpkg>

Please note that the icon for the DP package is from HP/OpenView, circa 1997.
