(DP) Support Tip: DP SPI prerequisites in a virtual environment - install VEPA module
How does DP SPI works on a VM environment (if your CM is a VM)
It's installed on OM server where it installs OM configuration (policies, tools, groups, etc). OM server is then connected to managed node (Cell Manager) with Operations Agent and DP SPI Agent installed (this is done when you run Add Cell Manager tool). DP SPI Agent then gathers information about the environment, health status, events, etc from DP Cell Manager by reading appropriate files and running DP command line utilities. Everything is executed on Cell Manager. If you are using virtual environment then VEPA module must be installed on Cell Manager so that DP SPI Agent can run vepa_util.exe and query information about the environment.
CR have been created for updating DP SPI documentation with VEPA prerequisites.
Data Protector Smart Plug-in (Data Protector SPI) is an availability and performance management solution that extends the end-to-end service monitoring capabilities ofHP Operations Manager to include the Data Protector infrastructure. It fully integrates topology, health, and performance data into the HP Service Navigator, providing the end-to-end operations overview across the entire Data Protector environment and enabling delivery of effective business service management.
The supported Data Protector versions are: 7.xx, 8.xx, and 9.0x.
