Configure OMW to forward all events to OMi

1- Configure OMW to forward all events to OMi

a- Create Server-Flexible Management Policy

replace dxb-bsm-01.mahmoudthoughts.com with your OMi server.

b- Deploy the newly created policy to your OMW server and ensure it is enabled.


2- Configure HPOM Topology Sync


On BSM Console


Click Admin > Platform > Setup and Maintenance > Infrastructure Settings 


Under Select Context select Operations Management from Applications


image


Browse to Operations Management - HPOM Topology Synchronization Connection Settings Section


Type your OM Server Hostname, User, password and change other options as needed.


image


Run opr-startTopologySync.bat from BSM bin directory


%TOPAZ_HOME%\bin\opr-startTopologySync.bat



image


Check the result on Modeling Studio


Admin > ODB Administration > Modeling > Modeling Studio 


Select Views from Resource Type list


Select OM CI Collections  from Root > Operations Management


image


Click on Preview Icon


 


image


The Result should be the Node, Node Groups and Service Hierarchy

3- list the events forwarded by OMW


Click on Application > Operations Management


The list of events should be displayed under Event Perspective

In the video below I captured 30 seconds on generating test messages from OMW and how fast it shows in OMi

Hi, Thanks for your womderfull information...

am new on this technology .... I have got fdew chalange while migrating HP-OMU to HP-OMW ..

I have 10 hpux and linux servers which are currently monitored by outsourced HP-OMU and now I want same to be monitored by my new HP-OMW..without breaking any communication with my HP-OMU

Have tried with below command
# ./opcactivate -srv HP-OMW

But this says me warning as below
---
Warning: CERTIFICATE_SERVER already set to
To change use -f or -force_config_mode
Setting OV Control boot entry to true
-------
So as I understand this will re-create certificate and will break connection with my old OM .

So please let me know how I can stablish the certificate relation with my new OM without breaking any any connection with my old OM .

Even I don't want to re-create certificate and ask old OM to update .

Please Help !!!

Await for your reply

Thanks,

Mahmood,

Great Job. I always visit your pages before HP tools deployment. Can you post videos for other tools integration with Omi ? i.e Sitescope..NNMi..NagioS , SCOM..etc
