Web Reports and MOM using a CMMDB

Jump to solution

Can anyone suggest why, when using WEBREPORTING, we cannot start web reports using our MOM server?

We can login with a cell manager member of the MOM and then we can "see" the MOM server.  We can even run canned reports that provide info about the MOM server.  

The list of servers once in Webreporting show green on all members of the MOM environment but a red "X" for the actual MOM server.

 

Any clues would be helpful.   Audit folks question why logins dont work using the MOM as the login point.

This login will get you to the webreporting dialog --> https://pbbak11w:7116/webreporting/WebReporting.html

But then when you try to use PBBAK11W or the whole FQDN it says "Cell Manager information not available.  Login Failed.  (See attached image file.)

Hi,

I assume you created a password for the web reporting interface from the MOM GUI as instructed in DP online help:

Configuring a Password for Web Reporting

When you install the Data Protector Cell Manager the main system in the cell where the essential Data Protector software is installed and from which all backup and restore activities are managed. The GUI used for management tasks can be located on a different system. Each cell has one Cell Manager system., the Web reporting user (called java) is automatically created. By default, the Web user password is random. You need to change the password before accessing the Data Protector Web reporting
The Data Protector functionality that allows you to view reports on backup, object copy, and object consolidation status and Data Protector configuration using the Web interface.
functionality.

Steps

  1. In the Context List, click Users.

  2. In the Actions menu, click Set Web User Password.

    A Set Web User Password dialog box is displayed.

  3. In the Set Web User Password page, proceed as follows:

    1. In the New Password text box, enter the password.

    2. In the Confirm New Password text box, re-enter the new password.

    3. Click OK to save the password information.

I think that not being able to access the MOM data when accessing to the webinterface on one of the standalone cells is indeed an expected behavior.
