Adding Landscapes (SpectroSERVER) to existing ReportManager install

    Dear all, 

     

    in case an existing CA Spectrum Distributed Install is extended by one Landscape(SpectroSERVER) this is at SpectroSERVER level implemented via reference to the existing "MLS"/MainLocationServer. Here most important is the entry in configuration file $SPECROOT/LS/.locrc covering the MLS server configured. 

     

    Sample:    $SPECROOT/LS/.locrc covers  MAIN_LOCATION_HOST_NAME=specmls

     

    This new SpectroSERVER startup now will register via LocationService "into the DSS" - so doing a $SPECROOT/SS-Tools/MapUpdate -view - will show you this SpectroSERVER as part of the DSS context (ensure to have $SPECROOT/.hostrc updated to cover all other DSS members (SpectroSERVERs and OC-Severs)).

     

    Now - by updated LandscapeMap - the OC-Server with enabled ReportManager - will "see" this additional landscape. So doing a logon to the OC-webpage - then going to Administration - here then select dialog "Landscapes" you will see this new Landscape being part of the DSS. 

     

    To now enable this OC/SRM service to start logging this new Landscape data you have to enable this via OC-webpage - then going to Administration -> ReportManager -> SPECTRUM Status. This enables the monitoring "per now". 

     

    One more option is then - once enabled - to reset the sync date/time back so the OC/SRM will collect historical data - is the use of tool "./bin/RpmgrInitializeLandscape.sh". 

     

    Usage is (please stop OC/SRM tomcat when using this tool):

    Usage: RpmgrInitializeLandscape <username> <password>

                   [-skipInitialHistory]  [-initHist <# of days>]  [-slm]  [-all]  [<landscape1> <landscape2> ...]

     

    So - doing a  ./RpmgrInitializeLandscape.sh root root -initHist 45 <new_landscape/spectroSERVER> 

    will set the sync date back to "today - 45 days". This then allows Oc/SRSM to also retrieve historical data up to the depth of data stored in the Spectrum ArchiveManager (see parameter ./SS/DDM/.configrc -> MAX_EVENT_DAYS)

    Kind regards, Joerg
