    Installation Notes

    Installation requirements, as well as instructions for installing the Windows OS SPI are documented in the following guides:

    Reporter for WIN OS SPI on a Microsoft Cluster with HP Reporter 3.6 and no HP Operations Manager installation

    You must install the WINOSSPI-Reporter.msi only on the cluster node where the HP Reporter 3.6 resource group is active.

    To uninstall WINOSSPI Reporter, you must make sure that you uninstall WINOSSPI Reporter from the same cluster node on which you installed it. In addition, you must make sure that the HP Reporter 3.6 resource group is active on the cluster node during uninstallation.

    Upgrade information

    The following Windows OS SPI versions can be upgraded or migrated:

    Policies affected during side-by-side migration or in-place upgrade

    During a side-by-side migration or an in-place upgrade:

    If a managed node is not accessible from the management server during an upgrade or migration, you can remove the obsolete policies and the removed policies from the managed node after the managed node becomes accessible. This stops reception of messages from obsolete policies.

    To check for the list of policies removed in this version, see removed policies.

    Services updated after Side-by-Side Migration or In-place Upgrade

    Following are the service instances discovered by the Windows OS SPI and removed from the management server during a side-by-side migration or an in-place upgrade:

    The Windows OS SPI installation process automatically deploys the new versions of the service discovery policies and the Microsoft Windows instrumentation on all Windows nodes.

    If autodeployment is disabled on the management server, you must deploy the following on all Windows nodes after the migration or upgrade is complete:

    1. Microsoft Windows instrumentation
    2. Microsoft Windows >Auto-Discovery >Auto-Deploy policy group

    To enable or disable autodeployment, set the following registry value to 0 or 1 respectively:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Hewlett-Packard\OVEnterprise\Management Server\AutoDeployment\Disable

    NOTE: In HPOM version 8.10, you can also set this registry value by: Configure> Server, Policy Management and Deployment> Disable autodeployment.

    Known Problems, Limitations, and Workarounds

    The following policies are not supported on Windows 2008 server operating system

    When trying to run any of these policies, a warning message will appear in the message browser stating an error occurrence while processing the policy.

    Unknown Severity Messages for x64 Managed Nodes

    When the stopped services and processes are restarted on an x64 managed node, the measurement threshold policies (Windows OS SPI service and process monitoring policies) generate messages with unknown severity in place of the normal acknowledgement messages on the active message browser.

    WINOSSPI-IISCollector fails on Windows 2003 64-bit

    The workaround is to change the default location of the IIS Log files to another directory outside the <systemroot> \system32 folder. This must be done on all the web sites where the WINOSSPI-IISLogFileCollector policy collects data. This also must be done on all the Windows 2003 64-bit managed nodes where the policy is deployed. To modify the default log file path:

    1. Go to the Administrative Tools menu and launch the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
    2. Right-click Web Sites. The Properties page opens.
    3. From the Web Site tab pane, click Properties in the Enable logging frame.
    4. In the Logging Properties dialog box, change the Log file directory to any location that is not under %systemRoot%\system32.
    5. Click OK.

    Stand-alone WINOSSPI Reporter installation requires custom install

    When you install the WINOSSPI Reporter integration outside the HP Operations Installer (by running the .msi file directly), the SPI files are placed in the following directory: <Installation directory>\HP\HP BTO Software\Install\WINOSSPI. If you specified a different installation directory during the HP Reporter installation, select Custom when prompted for Setup Type by the WINOSSPI Reporter installation.

    In the Custom Setup dialog, change the Install to: directory to match the installation directory you specified when installing Reporter. To install WINOSSPI Reporter on a stand-alone Reporter System:

    1. Double-click the WINOSSPI-Reporter.msi file.
    2. Select Custom and ensure that the WINOSSPI Reporter package is installed in the same directory as the stand-alone Reporter installation.
    3. Click Next to start the installation of WINOSSPI Reporter.
    4. Click Finish to complete the installation of WINOSSPI Reporter.

    Changed policy names are not displayed for messages from nodes that have earlier versions of the policy

    Though a policy name might have changed, the node that has an earlier version of the policy displays messages in the message browser with the unchanged policy name in the General tab. This occurs in spite of the server Policy Management and Deployment (PMAD) database displaying the changed policy name. The changed policy name displays in the General tab only after the new version of the policy is deployed on the node.

    This is not a problem and does not affect any functionality including duplicate message suppression.

    Integration with Self-Healing Services client software fails on some systems

    The integration with Self-Healing Services client software fails on managed nodes where Microsoft Windows short paths are disabled. The Microsoft Windows > Self Healing Services > Self Healing Info tool, can be run on the nodes to gather diagnostic data.

    In case of fresh installation, the Windows OS SPI Reporter Package gives the following error messages in the reporter trace file:

    <Date> <Time>: RepLoad Begin removing template file <Installation directory>\HP\HP BTO Software\newconfig\Packages\repload_WINOSSPI_FULL.SRP
    <Date> <Time>: ERROR: RepLoad Unable to open file "<Installation directory>\HP\HP BTO Software\newconfig\Packages\repload_WINOSSPI_FULL.SRP"
    <Date> <Time>: ERROR: RepLoad Unable to remove template information from database
    <Date> <Time>: RepLoad Begin removing template file <Installation directory>\HP\HP BTO Software\newconfig\Packages\repload_WINOSSPI_AD.SRP
    <Date> <Time>: ERROR: RepLoad Unable to open file "<Installation directory>\HP\HP BTO Software\newconfig\Packages\repload_WINOSSPI_AD.SRP"
    <Date> <Time>: ERROR: RepLoad Unable to remove template information from database
    <Date> <Time>: RepLoad Begin removing template file <Installation directory>:\Program Files\HP\HP BTO Software\newconfig\Packages\repload_WINOSSPI_IIS.SRP
    <Date> <Time>: ERROR: RepLoad Unable to open file "<Installation directory>:\Program Files\HP\HP BTO Software\newconfig\Packages\repload_WINOSSPI_IIS.SRP"
    <Date> <Time>: ERROR: RepLoad Unable to remove template information from database

    These messages do not have any impact on the functionality of the product.

    On uninstallation of Windows OS SPI Reporter Package, the configuration for reports provided by Windows OS SPI is not removed from the Reporter database.

    Hence there may be messages in the Reporter trace file that it has failed to generate reports (for all the reports that are shipped with Windows OS SPI).
