Validating the BSM EUM Model


The following steps will navigate you to the EUM model validation JMX bean:

  1. Login to gateway server jmx console http://<Gateway>:8080/jmx-console/
  2. Under Topaz, Click “service=EUM Administration Service” then find “validateEumModel()”

Enter the following:

  • customer id: 1
  • Eum Model: ALL
  • Full Model Scan: "yes"
  • Fix Model If Needed: "yes" ;

Integrating Sitescope to HP Operations Manager (BSM)

  1. Stop Sitescope Service on host
  2. Launch Configuration Tool from Start Menu (run as administrator)
  3. Install the Operations Agent
  4. On the SiteScope server (where the OM agent is running):

    1. Execute "ovconfget sec.core CORE_ID" from command line. Copy the results.
  5. On the BSM DPS machine: (<coreid> is output of step A)

    1. Execute "ovcert -exporttrusted -file \dps" from command line
    2. Execute "ovcm -issue -file \sitescope00 -name:  <sitescope_server_FQDN> -coreid <coreid>" from command line
    3. Copy the created files from DPS to SiteScope server
  6. On SiteScope server:

    1. Execute "ovcert -importtrusted -file \dps" from command line.
    2. Execute "ovcert -importcert -file \sitescope00" from command line.

Note: One reason you might perform this kind of manual integration is if port 383 is not open between the SiS and DPS servers.

Using the JMX console to reassign services between Data Processors

1) In a Web browser, open: http:// :8080/jmx-console
When prompted, enter the JMX Console authentication credentials (if you do not have these credentials, contact your BSM Administrator).

2) In the Topaz section, select service=hac-backup.

3) Invoke listServers()to display the hostname of your src/dst servers. Note these.

4) Return to the previous MBean, locate moveServices() and enter the following values:
– customerId. The default customer ID for a regular HP Business Service Management installation is 1.
– srcServer. The name of the source server from where you are moving services.
– dstServer. The name of the destination server to where you are moving the services.
– groupName. Leave this parameter value blank.

5) Click Invoke. All services running on the source server are moved to the destination server.

Upgrading a BAC 8.x uCMDB Foundation License

When you install Business Availability Center, you receive the Universal CMDB Foundation license. To obtain the file needed to upgrade to the Standard or Advanced license, contact HP Software Support, then perform the following procedure:

To upgrade your license:

1. Obtain the appropriate file (standard or advanced) from HP Software Support.
2. Replace the ucmdb_license.xml file in the \mam_lib\server folder on the Data Processing server machine .

If Business Availability Center is installed in a distributed deployment, replace the file on the Gateway Server machine.

3. Use the JMX console to force a license change:
a. Launch a Web browser and enter the address http://.:8080/jmx-console, where is the name of the machine on which BAC is installed. When prompted, enter the JMX Console authentication credentials (if you do not have these credentials, contact your system administrator).
b. Under MAM, click service=UCMDB UI to open the JMX MBEAN View page.
c. Locate java.lang.String getLicenseForCustomer() and enter the following information:

In the force parameter box, select True.
In the ParamValue box for the parameter customerId, enter 1.
Click Invoke.

Note: To verify the type of license that is installed, select False and enter the customer ID. Details about the license are displayed.
