    Hi Guys

     

    We are testing the communication between CCC/DM and UIM.

    David T.,

       I think this is what they are asking about...

    One of the Post install Steps talks about configuring the Thrift Services for Data Manager.

     

    ---------

    To use the CA UIM (Unified Infrastructure Management) capman_da probe
    to collect data, you first configure thrift services on the Data
    Manager through the config.txt file.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Access the config.txt file at:
      Capacity Command Center <x.x>\ApacheTomcat\webapps\DM\WEB-INF\classes\config.txt
    2. Open config.txt in a text editor and add the following thrift parameters:
         
      • dm_thrift_timeout_port
        The port number used by the thrift server.
      • dm_thrift_timeout_minutes
        The timeout value, in minutes, for connecting to the thrift server. Set to zero for no timeout.
      • dm_thrift_is_secure
        Manages the SSL communication to the capman_da probe. Set to true to enable secure communication.
      • dm_thrift_keystore
        The complete path to the
        key store that contains the certificate used for SSL communication.
        Only required if secure communication is enabled.
      • dm_thrift_keystorepass
        The encrypted
        password string for the key store that contains the certificate used for
        SSL communication. You must use the CCC EncryptPassword utility to
        generate the encrypted password string. Only required if secure
        communication is enabled.
    3. Save the file.
    4. Restart the Tomcat service.

    The Source URL for this is here:

    I hope this is helpful,

    David D.

    Hi David

     

    Thanks for your response,

     

    I found the congis. I just have a question though. One more question though. On the config file residing on the ccc servers. The dm_thrift_hostname=localhost. When configuring this on UIM, must we specify the hostname of the ccc server?

     

    Regards

    Yes, you must use the hostname or IP of the CCC server when configuring on UIM side.

     

    There is a change...check the documentation, that setting "localhost" on the CCC config might limit connections from localhost only...

     

    Could be that you need to specify the HOSTname or IP (of CCC server) in the CCC config to make it listen on more than just localhost.
