BSM OMi Question about BSM Connectors
Made a purchase of 100 HP Ops Target Connector LTU and 4 HP OM/OMi Target Connector 1000 pack LTU.
Do these contain the OA Agent software also and licenses to use them on remote servers?
Any details on these two products greatly appreciated, as I cna find no information about them on HP Web site or manuals that I can find.
While I have no clue how HP Ops Target Connector LTU is different from HP OM/OMi Target Connector LTU, neither of them gives entitlement for OM Agent. TC licenses are specifically designed for 3rd party nodes NOT having OM Agents on them.
So, the TC licenses go on the 3rd party device nodes that don't have OM Agents, but does that mean they don't need an OM agent if those 3rd party devices are sending snmp traps to BSM OMi using the BSMC on the DPS?
or does the 3rd party device node need the TC license and OM agent license both for this task?
Any help appreciated Dmitry.
TC licenses and OM Agent licenses are mutually exclusive. That means if a node is covered by an OM Agent license it doesn't need any TC license.
TC licenses were designed to cover licensing for such nodes that:
1. Don't have OM Agent running on them, so not covered by OM Agent license
2. Are not monitored by any HP Software product, hence not covered by corresponding license from HPSW product
3. Are configured to generate messages/alerts/alarms/whatever that eventually reach OMi as events (even via HPSW product like BSMC).
In a nutshell, all 3rd party nodes NOT monitored by any HPSW products, but making their events available in OMi for processing, must be licensed with TC licenses. The only exception from this rule would be so called single purpose devices (mainly various network devices) - routers, switches, printers etc. Such devices don't require TC licenses.
So for clarification.
The BSMC is installed and licensed on the BSM OMi DPS/GW servers and the TC license and BSMC (along with policy deployed) also get installed on the 3rd party nodes correct?
the target connector will be utilized based on Third party events ex: SCOM. But in our environment we are using SCOM which is the only third party integration via connector. In our RTSM only 634 is discovered as windows which came via SCOM. But we have applied 943 Target connector license so far, but still its showing license exceed.
Can you please specify how the count is calculated.
