Netapp Operations Manager 4.0.0 - Not reporting on two filers

sequeirad

Have setup two new filers.

Added them to Operations Manager 4.0.0. running on a Windows 2003 server machine.

Operations Manager found them but it is not reporting on volumes or any other data under File Systems.

It does show the Aggrs under Aggreagtes but I need to collect volume info and that does not show up under File Systems.

Any ideas?

sequeirad

resolved the issue finally WITHOUT upgrading to newest version of DFM...

Here is what I did...

Dfm service stop

Dfm service start sql

Dfm host delete -f <object_id_associated_with the filer>

Dfm service start

Dfm host add <filer_name_or_ip>

Both filers are reporting volume level info now.

What does the "dfm host diag <controller>" show?  Did you also set the login and password for the new filers?

sequeirad

mmm..correct me if I am wrong but if the login and apsswrd was wrong how would it know about the aggrs on the two filers?

niels

That's because for descovery of basic objects OM uses SNMP. Only for specific objects/functionalities OM requires API calls with username and password.

Niels..

Thanks. Did not know that.

Can you please tell me where I supply these credentials?

pradeepl

Hi,

You can use the CLI,

dfm host set , the column XML should be “Passed”

Pradeep..

Sorry but as you can well imagine total newbie here.

what do u mean by column XML should be "passed" ?

pradeepl

You can use the CLI, dfm host set host-id/host-ip/host-name hostlogin=username hostpassword=password.

And make sure in the output of dfm host diag host-id/host-ip/host-name, the column XML should be “Passed”

sequeirad

OK...that didn't work.

Anyone else has any other ideas?

Please share the exact version of DFM you are running.

Example:

C:\>dfm about |findstr -i version

Version                          4.0.1.7545 (4.0.1D2)

sequeirad

C:\Documents and Settings>dfm about |findstr -i version

Version                          4.0.0.6953 (4.0)

kryan

You will benefit from an upgrade to a version of DFM fixed for bug 367643, to ensure relaible SNMP monitoring of ONTAP 7.3.x and higher.

http://now.netapp.com/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Quick&bugs=367643

Backup DFM (dfm backup create) and then upgrade to 4.0.2D5, refresh the monitors against the host using the "dfm host discover FILER" command, and wait for new data to arrive.

http://now.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/dfm_win/4.0.2D5/

sequeirad

Oh I am sure there will be benefits but upgrading is not an option for me currently.

kryan

The only way to guarantee that you will get reliable data via SNMP is to use a DFM version fixed for bug 367643. 

If that is not an option then you will have to wait to see if DFM can ever get that data from the affected filer.

Of course, this bug and information is not applicable if the ONTAP verison is  older than 7.3.

sequeirad

All filers are running 8.02P2 OnTap

Pls do reset all monitoring to default value instead of the low values that you currently have.Also can get the output of dfm about to make sure that monitor is still running and dfm dint stop monitoring .

Adaikkappan

how do you reset to default values?

and I did not understand the second part of your reply....

"Also can get the output of dfm about to make sure that monitor is still running and dfm dint stop monitoring ."

????

pradeepl

Execute the CLI Command “dfm about”, which gives details about the DFM . Also paste the output of “dfm service list”.

DFM needs 20% free space in the installation directory for monitoring, which we can get from dfm about.
