ovolicense -report -product HPOM

Dear all,

After executing the command

ovolicense -report -product HPOM

From the result obtained, under  categories

 

HP Operations TC OS Instance
---------------------------------------------------------
  Installed Licenses      : 0
  Needed Licenses         : 1
  Available Licenses      : -1

 

We  have a negative value  for type "HP Operations TC OS Instance"

 

How would we going to identify this negative value coming from ?

or How do we going to find out the node name ?

 

Thanks and Regards,

Clarence

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

Hello.

 

There's a dcoument here:

 

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1021909

 

For the previous day this tool will show the info:

 

/opt/OV/bin/OpC/opcremsyschk -show

 

In general, this report will show node names (you will obviously need to discard results for nodes with a used license):

 

/opt/OV/bin/OpC/call_sqlplus.sh msg_statistic

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

After executing  /opt/OV/bin/OpC/opcremsyschk -show

it show two nodes.

But on the ovolicense -report -product HPOM,it reflect as 1 negative.

 

one belong to a windows system and the other is a linux system.

1 Intel/AMD x86(HTTPS) MS Windows

2 Intel/AMD x86(HTTPS) Linux 2.6 (agent not migrated yet)

 

Why being classified under HP Operations TC OS Instance

 

Thanks and Regards,

Clarence

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

The tool shows nodes which have a non-zero license_type column and which are not virtual nodes.

 

You can check what's set for the reported notes like so:

 

echo -e 'set pagesize 100\nset linesize 200\nselect n.node_name, o.license_type from opc_nodes o, opc_node_names n where o.node_id = n.node_id;' | opcdbpwd -e sqlplus

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

Hello,

 

Based on this output

 

HP Operations TC OS Instance

---------------------------------------------------------

  Installed Licenses      : 0

  Needed Licenses         : 1

  Available Licenses      : -1

 

This seems you have installed 1 licenses but do you didn't activated any one licenses so the result for minus operations between 0 - 1 = -1.

 

Or you have the licenses and didn't activated or try to acquire those licenses.

 

Added to what was mentioned please consult the following existing thread:

 

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Systems-Management-OpenView-OP/OML9-Getting-these-critical-messages-about-licenses-but-I-have/td-p/5679653#.Uw9JDk2p2JI

 

For OMU there is a tool can be used for this purpose details as follow:

 

"Requesting a tool for identifying nodes that require Target Connector licenses"

 

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/LID/QCCR1A138584

 

And there is a white paper that explains how to use it:

 

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1021909/binary/OMU8x_9x_TargetConnectCheckUtility_wp.pdf

 

It requires some manual work to determine which nodes require a TCL and which not because there are some exceptions.

 

Hope this information helps.

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

have excute the script

echo -e 'set pagesize 100\nset linesize 200\nselect n.node_name, o.license_type from opc_nodes o, opc_node_names n where o.node_id = n.node_id;' | opcdbpwd -e sqlplus

 

and obtained a result of 546 rows information.

448 rows contain the value 0

98 rows contain the value 3

 

Don't know how to proceed from here.

Clarence

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

Sure, but which value do the nodes you said are mentioned by the 'opcremsyschk' tool have?

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

Hello Clarence,

 

The reason for the discrepancy is probably this.

"opcremsyschk -show" will show you the nodes that are right now considered candidates for a Target Connector License (message nodes that don't have an agent installed).

 

But the number used in the report is the average over the last 30 days. You can see the history of the last 30 days using "opcremsyschk -list".

 

The next question would be, where are the messages come from. That will determine if a target connector license is required (e.g. if a message is from anther HPSW product like NNMi, then no Target Connector License is needed).

 

Best regards,

Tobias

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

Hello.

 

You should check what the select statement I gave you shows for the two nodes that opcremsyschk is also showing.  And as Tobias said, the numbers reported are averaged and if properties for nodes are not correct, the numbers will be off.

 

Regards,

    Goran

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

By putting this statement

opt/OV/bin/ovconfchg -ovrg server -ns tclfilter -set dumpfile /var/opt/OV/share/tmp/OpC/mgmt_sv/dumpfile.txt

We manage to find out the node.

But this node is of windows server and do contain agent.

 

Please advise.

 

Regards

Clarence

Re: ovolicense -report -product HPOM

Hello.

 

If you can provide exact node names, outputs of select statements for affected nodes etc. then it makes sense to look at this further here.  But if you can't, then I would suggest you open a support case to get an exact explanation of the situation.
