4. Preparing to install the CCER 5.2 RU2 Patch

==============================================

Before you install this RU2 patch, perform these steps:

 

 

1. Log in to the Enterprise Reporter console.

 

2. In the Enterprise Reporter console, click:

Data Management >> Data Rollup Configuration >> Status

 

Verify that no data rollups are in progress. To install this patch,

all data rollup processes must be complete.

a. Click:

Data Management >> Data Sources

 

b. Select the data source.

c. Uncheck the Enabled checkbox.

d. Click Save.

 

4. If the Oracle database is on a remote system, check that the tnsnames.ora

file on the Enterprise Reporter Management Server includes entries for the

host where the Oracle database resides. If entries for the Oracle host are not

present in the tnsnames.ora file, add them. The entries allow the Enterprise

Reporter host to reach the Oracle host by using the tnsping utility.

 

5. NOTE: Delete the GUI work directory, location as follows:

Windows: <InstallDir>\VRTSweb\admin\runtime\work

Solaris: /var/VRTSweb/work

=====================================

 

1. Download the file VRTS_CommandCentral_Enterprise_Reporter_5.2_RU2.tar.gz to a

temporary location on an Enterprise Reporter server.

 

2. Change current working directory to the <CCER_HOME>\hotfix directory.

for eg: <CCER_HOME> is ER install directory

 

3. Copy the VRTS_CommandCentral_Enterprise_Reporter_5.2_RU2.tar.gz from temporary location to the

<CCER_HOME>\hotfix directory

When the installation script prompts you for an Oracle database

user name and password, enter the user name and password for a

user with system administrator privileges.

 

6. After you install the patch, enable all data sources for data rollup.

 

For each data source:

a. Click:

Data Management >> Data Sources

b. Select the data source.

c. Check the Enabled checkbox.

================

Additional Notes

================

This patch includes the following fixed features and enhancements:

 

* ETL Changes

- The Ability to merge duplicate data in multi-site environment

 

Enterprise Reporter now supports the ability to roll up data about

the same storage array or LUN from multiple data sources. For

example, two CommandCentral Storage Management Servers might discover

the same storage array. If you roll up data from

both of the Management Servers, Enterprise Reporter provides

accurate information about the storage array.

 

- Chargeback for file systems and volumes on virtual machines

You can now use the metrics in the Chargeback Analysis package

to retrieve usage data for file systems and volumes on virtual

machines.

- Support rollup of vmx hosts that has commas in the file name which is legal in vmware

 

- Enhance support for non-array luns rollups

 

 

 

 

* GUI Changes

- Correctly detect CCS 5.2 sources.

- Detect ‘CCS esmweb HF’ sources and also correct for any existing sources.

- Provide ability for a non-admin user to manage Business Views.

 

- Log additional details for each ER GUI login request.

 

 

 

* Metamodel Changes

 

- Corrected Exclude duplicate cluster file system filter.

 

- Detect ‘CCS esmweb HF’ sources and also correct for any existing sources.

 

- Categorization in the host Consumption package for storage given from NFS Storage pool

 

Added Allocated_NFS and Claimed_NFS as new facts in host consumption package.

 

 

 

 

* Report Changes

- Modified SAN Chargeback summary report

The report is now using 'Adjusted Allocated Capcity' instead of 'capacity

 

allocated to host directly'. Also corrected the total cost and physical

 

capacity using same formula to calculate Adjusted Cost and Adjusted Physical

 

Capacity.

- Corrected "File System/Volume Consumption" Report

.

The report now works without any exceptions.
