Hi Everyone,

     Please advise if with Veritas Operations Manager installed on a windows server can manage Linux/Unix hosts or I need VOM install on a Linux/Unix Server to manage Linux/Unix hosts.

 

Regards.

Ben.

Hi Ben,

Should not be a problem, you can use windows server as a management server & unix /linux hosts can become managed hosts ...

Hey Gaurav,

   Thanks for your response. The issue of adding the hosts is that, the clients should be on the Manager server's Domain while I can't be able to add a solaris system to a Windows domain. Is there a way we can go around the win Domain. Have an x86 system so I can't be able to make the solaris system the manager since sparc is the only supported architecture.

 

Regards.

Ben.

Hi Ben,

 

There isnt need to have the managed host (client) to be on windows domain in this case. All that is required to have a managed host added into VOM's MS (management server) domain is that the host name being used is resolveable (both ways) and port 5634 is also open both ways. 

When you tried addding the x86 solaris managed host - did it fail? 

Thanks,

 Vidyut.

Hi Vidyut,

   Yes it failed with below error

"Failed: Error V-394-4095-805 Could not contact host, Xprtld may be down or host is not part of domain."

The challenge is that the VOM's MS (management server) is a windows server and I anticipate to manage 2 solaris systems from the windows server. Am able to ping all the systems from all the systems.

 

Regards.

Ben.

Hi Ben,

  Please verify that the VRTSsfmh package is installed and running on the managed host, and that you can ping the Management Server, and vice versa:

 

 $ ps -eaf | grep xprtld

    root  4480     1   0   Jun 24 ?           0:44 /opt/VRTSsfmh/bin/xprtld -X 1 /etc/opt/VRTSsfmh/xprtld.conf

 $ netstat -a | grep 5634

localhost.58254      localhost.5634       49152      0 49152      0 TIME_WAIT

localhost.5634       localhost.58254      49152      0 49152      0 TIME_WAIT

      *.5634               *.*                0      0 49152      0 LISTEN

 $ telnet myvomserver 5634

/tmp $ ping myvomserver

The logs from your management server may also help find a solution.  I often get the error message that you got, but another problem exists.
 
If you still feel you need it added to the domain, you may need to speak to the domain administrator.
