I am installing OVOU 8.1 on a solaris 5.9 box
and am having extreme difficulties. I have done a clean install of Oracle 9i. and after several attempts I have gotten to the point that I can't figure out.
I have been able to make it through to the install of the local agent and it fails. in phase 3 it comes up with the warning "update of agent installation time for node <node_name> failed Error opc_dflt_lang (### *different each time*) No according data found in the database. (OpC50-3)" from running "ovconfget -ovrg server" I can see that there was no parameter named that in [opc]. then from running "ovconfget ... OPC_DFLT_LANG iso885915" and running ovconfget I verified that it was in there. running the installer again and it still picks up the error. although I doubt this is the reason of the failure, just an annoyance...

I think the real problem is:

looking in the install.log I see "Node <node_name>: this node is not contained in the domain (OpC40-712)" looking at this error in "opcerr" it says to "check the managed node configuration in the HPOM using the administrator's GUI"

I have found no way to check this. I can log into the java GUI as the opc_adm but do not see "managed node configuration" anywhere.

But the node is visible in the node pane.

Have you mentioned?


in opcinfo file.. Most of the time this could be a reason for such problems.

try to stop all ov processes (ovstop -c;ovc -kill) and install local agent manually: run opc_inst script in /var/opt/OV/share/databases/OpC/mgd_node/vendor/sun/sparc/solaris7/A.08.10.160/R
PC_BBC directory.
When you manage to start the processes, check the state of certificates (ovcert -list/check,...). Check for pending certificates.

I guess the HPOM was previously installed for several times, and the database wasn't really cleaned up.

PS: HPOM > 8.X does not have opcinfo for local agent (nor remote), you can get info by ovconfget. Nor the opcsvinfo exists on HPOM servers > 8.X.

That helped immensely and let me install the local agent. thank you! the cetificates check are all fine and the manual install completed without error.

but I've run into another problem... when I run "/opt/OV/bin/OpC/utils/opcagt -status" I get:

opcmsga HPOM Message Agent AGENT,EA Aborted
opcacta HPOM Action Agent AGENT,EA (1151) Running
coda OV Performance Core AGENT,CODA (1152) Running
opcmsgi HPOM Message Interceptor AGENT,EA (1153) Running

I try to run "opcagt -start" and no more start

and the script produces:

- testing the HPOM Message Interceptor
* submitting first HPOM message via opcmsg(1)
The HPOM Message Command is not configured on this system.
Contact your HPOM Administrator to configure it. (OpC30-913)

WARNING: OpC Trap Interceptor (opctrapi) not running
WARNING: OpC Logfile Encapsulator (opcle) not running
WARNING: OpC Monitoring Agent (opcmona) not running
that's all; exit

where do I go from here?

That‚??s really great‚?¶!

Running of opcmsg subagent is not an issue as it is clear from output error, that you have not applied any message template to the node.

You just need to configure a message template with a simple condition to grab any message pattern and apply that to the node and push the template. It will automatically let the agent to start opcmsg subagent.

yes, I hope previous post will help. The next step is even more easy. Now you have to update your HPOM server with server consolidated patch, unless you have a strong reason not to do it. Latest HPOM server patch for solaris is 8.23 (ITOSOL_00518). If you need java UI, install ITOSOL_00527.

Also, you should update a server with client pathces. For solaris agent you should install the following patches, and reinstall local agent via HPOM UI (DO NOT deinstall local agent, just reinstall it):
- agents Core, solaris client A.08.14 for Solaris HPOM server: ITOSOL_00462
- agents Event Action solaris client A.08.14 for Solaris HPOM server: ITOSOL_00471
- agents Perl, solaris client for Solaris HPOM server: ITOSOL_00443

When installing patches follow readme files, which come with patches (or close HPOM ui, ovstop -c; ovc -kill; install all mentioned patches; ovstart -c; ovc -start; open HPOM UI, reinstall local agent, and agent should be up and running).

Additionaly, if you want subagent on your local solaris agent, you should install OVPA (subagent) packages:

Thank you both for extremely helpful answers! I have 2 final questions for this thread...

1) where do I find and how do I install those solaris subagent packages?

2) the script now is working and I am recieving messages, but all of the messages from the SNMPTraps application are not working. all of these messages come as "OpC internal error: Cannot generate message 10 of set 80" how can I fix this?

as always the rught answer maybe just a step away :). I've searched on ITRC and foudn this, so I suggest you to try, as it worked for another ITRC user:
- thread:
- possible solution: michaelw: Installing the patch ITOSOL_00318 created the OVPA deployable directories. Did the trick!

In this case use recent patch, which can be found with this link:
(NOTE that OVPA is installable only on HPOM 7.X servers, not on HPOM 8.X, as in your case).
But you don't have a problem with subagent, you just need to install opcmsg template, in order to handle sending messages from an HPOM agent. Sorry, I didn't check the last part of the's output. So you only need to assign and distribute an opcmsg template to that agent and you can start sending messages with an opcmsg binary (man opcmsg).

For second question use info on this thread:
Check what Dan Allbritton writes.
