vPV appliance monitoring

We cannot install HPOA agent on vPV appliance.

For OA agent deployment there are 3 prerequisites :

- DNS OK

- Ping OK

- Port 383 open

We checked, DNS is ok and port 383 is open.

We found out that a ping is not possible because it is blocked.

 

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)

target     prot opt source               destination

ACCEPT     all  --  anywhere             192.168.122.0/24    state RELATED,ESTABLISHED

ACCEPT     all  --  192.168.122.0/24     anywhere

ACCEPT     all  --  anywhere             anywhere

REJECT     all  --  anywhere             anywhere            reject-with icmp-port-unreachable

REJECT     all  --  anywhere             anywhere            reject-with icmp-port-unreachable

 

Is it allowed to remove this rejection?

If not it there another solution to monitor this vPV appliance?

Hi, you do not need to have ping necessarily open since port 383 is open.

So it would be possible to install the OA agent and do all the monitoring without ping working?

Yes it is quite common to have the OM agent configured and running in environments where ping (ICMP) is disabled. the only limitation of this is that the alive-packets from the managed node cannot be sent. however the OM server will still be able to monitor the heart beat from the managed nodes.
