The Oracle ASR Manager Release 5.2.1 software upgrade is quick to install and is available for download from http://oracle.com/asr

.

All customers are urged to upgrade to this release at their earliest convenience. See

Using Auto Update to Upgrade Oracle ASR for instructions on how to upgrade to the

latest version of the ASR Manager.

Note:

Support for Oracle Auto Service Request is limited to the current release and the two previous releases. Oracle now supports

ASR 5.2.1, 5.2, and 5.0.3. It is recommended that you upgrade to the latest version. See

Using Auto Update to Upgrade Oracle ASR

for more information.

Features and Enhancements for Oracle ASR Release 5.2.1

The Oracle Auto Service Request Release 5.2.1 includes the following features:

Corrects an issue for Solaris sites auto updated from ASR Manager 5.0.3 to ASR

Manager 5.2 where the activate_asset

and activate_blade

commands are not working.

Corrects an issue where some sites auto updated to ASR Manager 5.2 incorrectly received a warning notification that the auto update process did not complete.

This incorrect warning notification will not be received for future auto updates.

Corrects an issue where for some ASR Manager 5.2 sites the show_version command is resulting in log4j errors being written to the console.

Features and Enhancements for Oracle ASR Release 5.2

The Oracle Auto Service Request Release 5.2 includes the following features:

Corrects issues ASR Manager 5.0.x versions have working with NTLM proxies, including Auto Update and the ASR send_diag

command.

Improvements to ASR command line text.

Numerous fixes and improvements to the ASR Auto Update process including better failure messaging and information.

xi

Corrects an issue where "?" is not displaying the list of ASR commands at the asr> prompt.

Corrects an issue where ASR heartbeat events are not properly processing serial numbers that have "+" in them.

Features and Enhancements for Oracle ASR Release 5.0.3

Starting with ASR 5.0.3, the default Oracle ASR infrastructure end point, if available, is changed to transport.oracle.com

(141.146.1.169), if not already set. The following two ASR end points are eventually going to be terminated: transport.sun.com

(141.146.156.47) and transport.sun.co.uk

(141.146.156.48). Additionally, ASR Auto

Update will not work for sites using these end points.

The following known issues for ASR Manager 5.0.0, 5.0.1, and 5.0.2 have been corrected with the release of ASR Manager 5.0.3, including:

Corrects an issue where ASR Managers are running in a multi-network interface environment and are not properly binding to SNMP trap receivers, and as a result, traps are not being received from these assets.

Corrects an issue where sites using a proxy with authentication enabled are having connecting to the Oracle ASR infrastructure.

Corrects an issue where sites using a general proxy are having with ASR Auto

Update not working.

Corrects an issue with some Solaris ASR Auto Update enabled sites where ASR

Manager 5.0.0, 5.0.1, and 5.0.2 sites are not or will not Auto Update. These sites have Auto Update enabled but are not Auto Updating as a result of the issue.

Corrects an issue where diagnostic log file send is not working for sites using a proxy (with or without authentication).

Corrects an issue where some Solaris ASR Manager 4.9 sites with Auto Update enabled are not auto updating. These 4.9 sites have Auto Update enabled but are not able to Auto Update.

Corrects an issue where the test_connection

and show_version

commands are intermittently not responding.

Corrects an issue where there is an SNMP port conflict resulting from running

OASM for SFT on the same server as ASR Manager.

Corrects an issue where the ASR Manager local SR notification trap is not including the default OID.

Corrects an issue where if the ASR Manager local SR notification trap is enabled, duplicate traps are being sent.

Corrects an issue where the test SNMP get

command ( test_snmp_get

) is not working if using a non public

community string.

Known Issues for ASR Manager

Auto Service Request (ASR) Overview

[2]

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) is a secure, scalable, customer-installable software feature of Oracle Premier Support for Systems and Oracle/Sun Limited Warranty support that provides auto-case generation when specific hardware faults occur. The

ASR Manager software and system, which is an implementation of ASR for Oracle, accepts fault telemetry data sent from one or more assets.

Visit the Oracle ASR product page ( http://www.oracle.com/asr

) for details on the features and benefits of ASR. For a list of products supported by ASR Manager, see: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/nav/products.htm

Note:

ASR is not a monitoring solution and is not a substitute for the normal monitoring processes/services that customers have.

The following chapters provide installation, configuration, and troubleshooting information for the ASR Manager software:

Chapter 2, "Installing and Registering ASR Manager Software."

Chapter 3, "Configuring and Activating Oracle ASR Assets."

Chapter 4, "Managing Your Oracle ASR Environment."

Understanding ASR Architectural Components

ASR Assets

Oracle/ASR Backend Infrastructure

Oracle Support Interaction

ASR Manager

The ASR Manager is a system that centrally accepts hardware telemetry data sent from a group of ASR Assets. The ASR Manager filters the incoming data and forwards potential fault telemetry to Oracle/ASR Backend systems. For the ASR Manager, you should also know:

The ASR Manager is always installed first, followed by ASR Assets.

You have the option to install more than one instance of an ASR Manager. The reasons to do this may be to support a large amount of ASR Assets and/or for organizational reasons, such as grouping ASR Assets by data center, support group, subnet, or other grouping scheme as needed.

Note:

Even though an ASR Asset communicates its telemetry to one

ASR Manager only, an ASR Manager can serve as a relay for other

ASR Managers by sharing a common network connection to Oracle

Support.

The ASR Manager system can be installed as an ASR Asset. This way, the ASR

Manager system can report its own hardware telemetry, as does an ASR Asset.

The telemetry data that is sent from the ASR Manager to the Oracle /ASR Backend

Systems is encrypted.

ASR Assets

ASR Assets are qualified systems that are configured to report its hardware telemetry to an ASR Manager. For a complete list of hardware qualified for ASR, see: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/nav/products.htm

Oracle/ASR Backend Infrastructure

The ASR backend infrastructure at Oracle collects all telemetry data forwarded to it from the ASR Manager, or ASR Managers if multiple instances are installed. The fault-rule technology on these backend systems ascertains the reality of the fault telemetry, and forwards recognized faults to Oracle's Service Request system. From there, the following actions occur:

A Service Request, also called a case, is created and assigned to an Oracle Support

Engineer. At the same time, an e-mail notification of the Service Request is sent to your support contact on record associated with the system reporting a fault.

The Service Request is handled in accordance with the asset’s Support or Warranty contract.

Oracle Support Interaction

Once an Oracle Support Engineer begins working on the Service Request, the engineer may collect additional information from you to better determine resolution to the hardware issue. Resolution to the issue may involve system configuration or the following possibilities:

Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs)

.

Order and ship a replacement part to the customer site to be installed by an Oracle

Field Engineer. These are called

Field Replaceable Units (FRUs)

.

Note:

See the ASR Security White Paper for more information about the architectural flow.

1.2 Verifying Oracle ASR Assets

The ASR assets send hardware telemetry data to your selected ASR Manager. The hardware you select for ASR coverage must be qualified. Qualified ASR assets have been tested and verified to be supported by the ASR backend infrastructure.

Qualified ASR asset hardware must be associated with a valid support identifier in My

Oracle Support ( https://support.oracle.com

).

To verify that your hardware is qualified for ASR (including any operating system restrictions), check the list of qualified ASR products at: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/nav/products.htm

After you have verified your ASR asset system(s), record the host name(s) and hardware type of each.

1.5 Verifying Your Network Connection

The ASR Manager system must have an internet connection – either a direct connection or through a proxy. If you access the internet through a proxy, check with your network administrator to collect information needed to configure the ASR

Manager system. You will need to know:

Proxy server name

Proxy port number

Proxy user name

Proxy password

ASR Manager Network Connectivity

Check and make note of the ASR Manager IP address. To obtain the IP address, run the following command from the ASR Manager: ifconfig -a

To test the connection to Oracle, in a browser, go to: https://transport.oracle.com/v1/

/usr/sfw/bin/wget https://transport.oracle.com/v1/

For Linux: telnet transport.oracle.com 443

/usr/bin/wget https://transport.oracle.com/v1/

If you receive a "connected" message, the connectivity is successful.

ASR Assets Network Connectivity

For ASR assets, contact your network administrator to confirm or enable the following:

1.

Set-up firewall rules to allow bi-directional SNMP/UDP traffic to traverse between ASR Assets and the ASR Manager.

Notes:

If your asset is running Solaris 11 and if you are planning to use the ASR Manager Relay function, then ensure the designated

HTTP(S) port is open to the ASR Manager.

If your asset is running Solaris 11 and if you are planning on a direct connect back to Oracle, then ensure connectivity with the following command: telnet transport.oracle.com 443

2.

Ensure that ASR assets can send SNMP telemetry data out on port

162

to the ASR

Manager.

Note:

If your asset is running Solaris 11, then ensure it can send

HTTP(S) telemetry data to the ASR Manager port configured.

3.

Ensure that the ASR Manager can communicate with Service Tags on ASR asset, via http, using port

6481

.

1-6

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

Verifying Telemetry

Check and make note of the ASR Asset IP address. To obtain the IP address, run the following command: ifconfig -a

If working with a system that has a service processor, such as a Blade system and some

T and X-series systems, obtain the service processor and/or the chassis IP address.

These will be required for ASR installation.

1.6 Verifying Telemetry

An integral component to ASR functionality is the hardware telemetry sources resident on your ASR assets. Depending upon your hardware type, you will have one or more hardware telemetry sources resident on your system. To determine the telemetry source for your ASR Asset, see the list of qualified hardware at: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/nav/products.htm

Once you find your specific hardware in the list:

1.

2.

In the columns titled

Telemetry Source on: SERVICE PROCESSOR

and

Telemetry Source on: HOST

, you will see the telemetry sources that are on your system. As indicated, some telemetry sources reside on a service processor

(dedicated hardware), and others reside on the host itself. It is also common for some systems to have multiple telemetry sources.

Make a note of the telemetry sources on your system for later use in the installation process (for example, ILOM, FMA, XSCF, etc.).

3.

If the telemetry sources have a

Note

indicator, review the note at the bottom of the table and make note of the requirements for that telemetry source. Keep the following in mind:

Any Solaris operating system or patch requirements should have been

completed. Refer to Verifying Operating System Requirements , if necessary.

In some cases, the telemetry software must be upgraded for ASR. In other cases, the telemetry source requires a dedicated network connection.

In some cases, multiple telemetry sources cannot run together on the same system.

1.6.1 Telemetry Sources Overview

Oracle ASR supports a variety of telemetry sources for a wide range of hardware types. The types of hardware telemetry supported by Oracle ASR include:

Fault Management Architecture (FMA)

Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM)

M-Series Extended System Control Facility (XSCF)

Oracle Hardware Management Pack (OHMP)

Fault Management Architecture (FMA)

FMA is a capability in Solaris 10 and 11 that automatically diagnoses, isolates, and recovers from many hardware and application faults. As a result, business-critical applications and essential system services can continue uninterrupted in the event of software failures, major hardware component failures, and even software misconfiguration problems.

Auto Service Request (ASR) Overview

1-7

Verifying My Oracle Support Requirements

Solaris 10 can be configured to send SNMP traps to the ASR Manager.

Solaris 11 can be configured to send events to the ASR Manager via http(s) using the Solaris asradm

command via the asr-notify service.

Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM)

ILOM is embedded into some platforms and comes with dedicated network and serial ports to provide remote management, configuration, and telemetry reporting. ILOM reports power and environmental problems as well as CPU and memory faults on certain servers.

Note:

Beginning with ASR 4.1, ILOM telemetry supports the SNMP v3 security protocol. SNMP v3 provides security (encryption and authentication) for any communication to an ASR asset.

If your environment requires SNMP v3 to use the Oracle ASR service, you will need to configure both ASR Manager and any ASR Assets.

See

Configuring ASR Manager for SNMP v3 and

Optional ILOM

Setup: SNMP v3 for ASR Assets for more information.

M-Series Extended System Control Facility (XSCF)

XSCF incorporates a service processor separate from all other processors. XSCF regularly monitors server components including CPU, memory, disks, fan rotation and device temperatures.

Oracle Hardware Management Pack (OHMP)

OHMP allows ILOM events to be captured by the Host and forwarded through the

Host network connection. OHMP is a telemetry source for T5xxx and some x64 servers.

1.7 Verifying My Oracle Support Requirements

My Oracle Support (MOS) is the primary online support site for Oracle Premier

Support Customers. From MOS, you can search the solutions knowledgebase, download patches and software, and create service requests (SRs). You can access

more details.

2.2.1 ASR Manager as an ASR Asset (Solaris Only)

An ASR Manager can be activated as an ASR asset, if it is qualified for ASR and entitled to service. In this case, you must select your ASR Manager from the list of qualified hardware. Once you install and register the ASR Manager as described in this chapter, complete the instructions in the

Configuring and Activating Oracle ASR

Assets chapter.

2.2.2 ASR Manager Support for Other Platforms

Because the ASR Manager no longer requires being installed on a device that is currently under an Oracle Service Contract and that the server has been qualified for

ASR, you now have more flexibility regarding how you can install ASR. Some of the possibilities include:

Local zone: for SPARC or x86 server running Solaris 10u6 or later

Note:

If the ASR Manager is installed on a local zone, it is not possible to activate the ASR Manager as an ASR asset. If this is attempted, an error will be returned:

Asset cannot be activated due to unknown product name or serial number.

Instead, activate the global zone of the asset, for example: asr> activate_asset -i <IP_address_of_the_global_zone>

Logical domains: for SPARC servers running Solaris 10u6 or later x86 Server running Linux (see

Linux (ASR Manager Only) for Linux versions

supported)

2-4

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

Enabling HTTP Receiver for ASR Manager Relay, Solaris 11, and VOP

Note:

Linux runs on x86 servers, and logical domains are specific to

Solaris SPARC servers.

Virtual environments: ASR Manager is supported in virtual environments (such as

Oracle VirtualBox, VMWare, and others) that meet the operating system, software, and network requirements.

Installation on blade servers:

Before installing ASR Manager on a blade system, make sure the service svc:/milestone/multi-user-server

status is online.

To check the status of this service, run: svcs svc:/milestone/multi-user-server

If the state indicates maintenance, run: svcadm clear svc:/milestone/multi-user-server svcadm enable svc:/milestone/multi-user-server

If the state indicates disabled, run: svcadm enable svc:/milestone/multi-user-server

The ASR Manager can be configured as a relay for other ASR Managers, Solaris 11 servers, and Virtual Operator Panel (VOP) for tape library products:

Solaris 11 includes the ability to send ASR fault events and telemetry to Oracle using xml over HTTP to the ASR Manager.

To enable this capability, use the asr enable_http_receiver

command. Select a port for the HTTP receiver that is appropriate for your network environment and does not conflict with other network services. To show the current HTTP receiver configuration port and status, run:

Installing and Registering ASR Manager Software

2-5

Enabling HTTP Receiver for ASR Manager Relay, Solaris 11, and VOP asr> show_http_receiver

Follow the procedure below to configure the ASR Manager as a relay for other ASR

Managers and Solaris 11 ASR Assets. Make sure you are logged in to the ASR Manager system as root.

1.

After installing the ASR Manager, enable the HTTP receiver: asr> enable_http_receiver -p <port_number>

Note:

If the following error message appears:

Unable to determine the fully qualified domain name for this ASR

Manager via DNS. Please refer to the Oracle ASR Installation and

Operations Guide for troubleshooting information.

If DNS is not available, then set up the HTTP receiver manually. Run the following commands:

/opt/asrmanager/bin/asr set_property org.osgi.service.http.host

<IP_address_of_ASR_manager>

/opt/asrmanager/bin/asr set_property org.osgi.service.http.port

<http_port>

/opt/asrmanager/bin/asr set_property org.apache.felix.http.enable true

Restart the ASR Manager and test the HTTP receiver as described in step 2.

2.

Verify the HTTP receiver is up and running. In a browser, go to: http://<asr_manager_host>:<port_number>/asr

A message will display indicating that the HTTP receiver is up and running.

Note:

If you need to disable the HTTP receiver, run: asr> disable_http_receiver

If you need to use HTTPS for security purposes, you can set up HTTPS/SSL for the

ASR Manager HTTP receiver:

Screen output should look like this:

NTLM Domain: ? <NTLM domain name>

NTLM Host: ? <hostname of the ASR Manager server>

2.5 Configuring ASR Manager for SNMP v3

ASR Manager supports two SNMP v3 telemetry sources: ILOM 3.0.16 and later (see

Enabling ILOM Telemetry

for details to enable ILOM telemetry for your ASR assets)

and M-Series XSCF (see Enabling M-Series XSCF Telemetry for details to enable XSCF

telemetry for your ASR assets).

Note:

If ILOM or M-Series XSCF is not your telemetry source, then skip this section.

SNMP v3 provides security (encryption and authentication) for any communication between an ASR asset.

To configure your designated ASR Manager to allow ASR assets to use SNMP v3 through ILOM or M-Series XSCF, you must create an SNMP v3 user:

1.

Create an SNMP v3 user: asr> add_snmpv3_user -u userName -e engineId[,engineId2, ...] -pp privacyProtocol

Notes:

ASR Manager only supports the SHA protocol for authentication.

It supports AES (ILOM) and DES (M-Series XSCF) for privacy and encryption.

The authentication password is case-sensitive and must contain 8 to 16 characters, with no colons or space characters.

ASR Manager supports only two SNMP v3 users at this time.

To enable the proper telemetry for your ASR assets, see:

Enabling ILOM Telemetry

Enabling M-Series XSCF Telemetry

2-8

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

ASR Manager and High Availability

Note:

ILOM only:

ASR Manager supports adding multiple engine

IDs (separated by comma) to the SNMP v3 user. The engine ID must match with the ILOM engine ID from ILOM Service processor. To view the ILOM engine id, run the following command from the ILOM

Service Processor: show /SP/services/snmp

For more information, see the

Optional ILOM Setup: SNMP v3 for

ASR Assets

section.

2.

You will be prompted to create both authentication and privacy passwords.

Show the SNMP v3 user: asr> show_snmpv3_user

Running this command displays the SNMP v3 user name, engine IDs, and authentication and privacy protocols (algorithms). Passwords are not displayed.

Notes:

ASR Manager only supports the SHA protocol for authentication and the AES (ILOM) and DES (M-Series XSCF) protocols for privacy and encryption.

ASR Manager supports only two SNMP v3 users at this time.

Once you have created the SNMP v3 user, you must configure the ASR Assets that use

ILOM for a telemetry source to use SNMP v3. See

Optional ILOM Setup: SNMP v3 for

ASR Assets

for more information.

Other options for managing the SNMP v3 user on the ASR Manager include:

Validate the authentication and privacy passwords of the SNMP v3 user: asr> validate_snmpv3_user

You will be prompted to enter both authentication and privacy passwords.

Delete the SNMP v3 user: asr> delete_snmpv3_user

You will be prompted to continue with the deletion. Enter

Y

to delete.

Add/delete the engine ID: asr> add_engine_id -e engineId[,engineId2, ...] asr> delete_engine_id -e engineId[,engineId2, ...]

Enable/disable SNMP v1 and v2c: asr> enable_snmpv1v2c : enable SNMPv1/v2c asr> disable_snmpv1v2c : disable SNMPv1/v2c

3.1.1 Accessing ASR Assets With My Oracle Support Message Center

My Oracle Support includes a Message Center to show when a user action is required.

If you have the correct association to a support identifier, then you will receive a message when the following ASR actions are required:

Show Assets with ASR 'No Heartbeat' Issue

This message indicates a network or connection problem with the ASR asset.

Approve ASR Assets

As new qualified hardware is associated with a support identifier, they need to be approved to be ASR assets. This message shows when an ASR asset is awaiting approval.

The ASR service will not be enabled for the asset until it is approved in

My Oracle Support.

3.2 Installing Software - Solaris 10 Only

If your ASR assets are running Solaris 10, then you will need to install Services Tools

Bundle (STB) to enable ASR telemetry. Also, if your ASR Asset does not use ILOM for telemetry, you will need to use the asrassetmenu.sh

script, which is included in the

ASR Asset Bundle, to configure the asset.

.

3.2.1 Installing Services Tools Bundle (STB) - Solaris 10 Only

STB is a tool set that helps ASR obtain required information from each ASR system before you can activate them, such as obtaining the system’s serial number from firmware. Follow the instructions below to install STB.

Note:

If your ASR Asset system is running Solaris 11, then STB is not required to enable ASR telemetry. However, STB is required to enable

Oracle Proactive Services.

1.

Download and untar the STB bundle that is appropriate for your platform. See

Oracle Services Tools Bundle (STB) - RDA/Explorer, SNEEP, ACT

(Doc ID 1153444.1) to download the latest Oracle Service Tool Bundle (STB) software from My Oracle

Support: https://support.oracle.com/rs?type=doc&id=1153444.1

2.

3.

On the system where ASR is to be installed, open a terminal window and log in as root

.

Run the install_stb.sh

script. You may have to change shells to sh

if the file does not execute. Also, you may have to set execute permissions on the file, as shown below: sh chmod +x install_stb.sh

./install_stb.sh

Note:

STB will install all applications bundles by default. You can downgrade applications when invoked with the

-force

option in non-interactive mode. Run install_stb.sh -?

to view all installation options.

4.

5.

6.

STB version 6.0 and higher defaults to installing all tools, a "yes" (y) response is already selected for you. As the installation progresses, you will be prompted for confirmation that you wish to install the tools.

When prompted: “Would you like to (I)nstall, (X)tract component selections, or

(E)xit,” press

[Enter]

.

To confirm that STB is installed correctly, and that it is reporting your system’s serial number correctly, run: sneep -a

If the serial number for your system is incorrect, contact Oracle Support to resolve this problem.

Run the following command to be sure that STB is reporting your system attributes correctly: stclient -Ex

3.2.2 Installing the ASR Asset Bundle - Solaris 10 Only

Note:

If your ASR Asset does not require Solaris 10 FMA fault

telemetry or uses XSCF (see Enabling M-Series XSCF Telemetry

), then skip this section.

The ASR Asset Bundle includes the asrassetmenu.sh

script used to configure an

SNMP trap host for Solaris 10 FMA on assets requiring this fault telemetry. If your asset does not require this fault source, then it does not need to be installed.

To access and install the ASR asset bundle:

1.

Open a terminal window and log in as root

on the system where the ASR

Manager is installed.

2.

3.

4.

Go to

/opt/asrmanager/asrassetbundle

directory and copy the

ASRAssetBundle.<version_num-timestamp>.tar.gz

file to all systems that you have identified as ASR assets.

You can copy the file to an NFS location or use a provisioning tool to distribute the file to a group of assets. Copy the ASR Asset Bundle file to any directory on the system, such as

/opt

or

/tmp

.

On

each

ASR asset, open a terminal window and log in as root

.

Go to the directory where you copied the ASR Asset Bundle file and unzip and untar the file: tar -xvf ASRAssetBundle.<version_num-timestamp>.tar

3.3 Enabling Telemetry Sources

These procedures enable telemetry sources on your ASR assets to send hardware telemetry data to Oracle through the ASR Manager. You should have already verified what telemetry sources reside on the system, as explained in

Verifying Telemetry .

Depending upon what telemetry sources reside on your system, complete one or more of the following procedures:

3.3.1.2 Change Default FMA

SNMPget

Port and community

String

FMA telemetry sources (including Solaris 10) are configured to send SNMP traps to the ASR Manager when faults occur. The ASR Manager then queries the asset for fault event details using

SNMPget

using default port and SNMP community

string. The port and community

string can be changed

for all assets

:

1.

Change the port number:

To show the existing FMA enrichment port: asr> get_property snmp.request.port

To change the port: asr> set_property snmp.request.port <port_number>

2.

Change the community string:

To show the community

string: asr> get_property snmp.request.community

To change the community

string: asr> set_property snmp.request.community <community_string>

3.

Optional ILOM Setup: OHMP

Confirm ILOM

Enable ILOM: GUI Interface

Enable ILOM: Command Line Interface

3.3.3.1 Set Up ILOM

For complete details on configuring ILOM to send telemetry information, refer to your

ILOM documentation.

ILOM requires a network connection/route to the ASR Manager system. If you know that ILOM is already set-up and connected to the network, continue to the next step.

Otherwise, continue with the tasks below.

1.

2.

A network connection must be made from the Net Management port on the system’s service processor (SP) to the network.

An IP address must be assigned to the Net Management port. Obtain and make note of this IP address for later use in the installation.

3.

4.

For some systems, ILOM can be connected using Sideband Management. ILOM

Sideband Management allows the same ILOM IP address to be used, but it is routed through one of the host Ethernet ports, thus eliminating the need for the physical connection to the ILOM Net Management ports. If you want to configure

your ILOM system for Sideband Management, go to Optional ILOM Setup: ILOM

Sideband Management

. When complete, return and continue with the following instructions.

If it is not possible to connect to the ILOM network port and your system does not support Sideband Management, OHMP telemetry can be configured on the host to generate telemetry for ILOM-diagnosed faults.

3.3.3.2 Optional ILOM Setup: SNMP v3 for ASR Assets

ILOM telemetry supports the SNMP v3 security protocol. SNMP v3 provides security

(encryption and authentication) for any communication to an ASR asset.

The minimum version of ILOM that supports the AES privacy protocol for SNMP v3 is

ILOM 3.0.16 and later.

1.

Log in to the ILOM service processor as root

and change to the snmp

directory: cd /SP/services/snmp

2.

Set a value for the engine ID: set engineid=<engineId>

For example: set engineid=engineid1234

Note:

The value of engineid

must be 25 characters or less.

To configure your qualified ASR assets to use SNMP v3 with ILOM telemetry:

Configuring and Activating Oracle ASR Assets

3-7

Enabling Telemetry Sources

1.

2.

Verify your ILOM service processor can support SNMP v3. Log in to the ILOM service processor IP as root

. Run the version

command.

The ILOM version must be

3.0.16

or later to use SNMP v3.

Create an SNMP v3 user: cd /SP/services/snmp/users create <UserName> authenticationprotocol=SHA authenticationpassword=<password> privacyprotocol=AES privacypassword=<password>

3.

This user is the same created earlier in

Configuring ASR Manager for SNMP v3 .

Set SNMP v3 to send telemetry to the ASR Manager: cd /SP/alertmgmt/rules/<x>

Where

<x>

is the alert rule slot. Refer to Enable ILOM: Command Line Interface to

find the specific alert rule slot of your ILOM.

set type=snmptrap level=minor destination=<ASR Manager IP address> destination_ port=162 community_or_username=<SNMP v3 user name> snmp_version=3

4.

5.

See

Create Test Alert - ILOM

to test the configuration.

Verify that the test alert is received to the ASR Manager. Check for the test alert in the ASR Manager log file:

/var/opt/asrmanager/log

Check that you have received the test Service Request confirmation e-mail. For examples of Service Request e-mail, see

Auto Service Request (ASR) Email Examples

(Doc ID 1963725.1) available in My Oracle Support

( https://support.oracle.com

): https://support.oracle.com/rs?type=doc&id=1963725.1

3.3.3.3 Optional ILOM Setup: ILOM Sideband Management

ILOM Sideband Management allows ILOM telemetry to be routed through a Host

Ethernet port. This shared connection using the Host Ethernet port eliminates the physical connection required for the ILOM Net Management port.

Note:

Connection to the service processor using ssh

or the web interface may be lost during configuration of Sideband Management.

The default ILOM network connection is through the Service Processor's dedicated network port.

Note:

ILOM Sideband Management is currently available for specific

Oracle x64 and CoolThreads servers. See the list of hardware qualified for ASR for more information: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/systems/asr/documentation/ index.html

1.

Log in to the host and confirm the mac address:

# ifconfig -a

Click

Save

for the changes to take effect.

3.3.3.4 Optional ILOM Setup: OHMP

The Oracle Hardware Management Pack (OHMP) allows ILOM events to be captured by the Host and forwarded through the Host network connection. This eliminates the need to network the Service Processor. The host must be configured and activated for

ASR to properly forward ILOM telemetry.

Note:

The OHMP for ASR is only available for certain systems using

Solaris 10. For more information about specific systems visit the

Oracle ASR product page ( http://www.oracle.com/asr

).

The host must be activated for ASR and trap destinations configured.

.

Before enabling ILOM telemetry, it is important to understand that ILOM supports up to 15 user-configurable alert rules. It is one of these rules you must set to enable

ILOM telemetry. Therefore, you must first choose one of these rules (1 to 15) to set.

Before choosing, however, you must determine that the rule you select is not currently being used. You can use the web-based GUI method to determine this

quickly, as discussed in Enable ILOM: GUI Interface . Otherwise, run the following

command to determine an available alert rule slot.

Configuring and Activating Oracle ASR Assets

3-11

Enabling Telemetry Sources

For Rack Mount Servers and Blades:

-> show /SP/alertmgmt/rules/x

For the Sun Blade 6000 Chassis:

-> show /CMM/alertmgmt/rules/x

Important:

Substitute

x

for a rule number (1 to 15). If you see that a rule level is set to anything else but disabled, the alert rule slot is occupied. Rerun the command above and substitute the rule number with the next number in sequence (for example, 2, then 3, etc.) until you find an available alert rule slot.

4.

Once an alert rule slot is determined, run one of the following commands. Pay close attention to the following data entry points before running the command:

3.3.4 Enabling M-Series XSCF Telemetry

Follow the procedures below to enable M-Series XSCF telemetry. It is assumed that a network connection to the platform’s dedicated service processor (SP) is connected and configured. Do not continue with the installation unless you have confirmed the initial XSCF set-up.

3-12

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

Enabling Telemetry Sources

Note:

Both of the M-Series XSCF service processors should be activated for ASR with their individual IP addresses used to send

SNMP traps to the ASR Manager, not the failover address shared by both XSCFs.

Also, as SNMP is running only on the active XSCF, a switch of the standby XSCF to the Active role is required to activate both service processors for ASR.

This procedure can also be used to remove XSCF trap destinations.

For more information on XSCF, refer to the

XSCF User Guide for

SPARC Enterprise M3000/M4000/M5000/M8000/M9000 Servers.

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

Activating ASR Assets

Unlike other qualified ASR Assets, the setup and configuration of VSM assets requires the involvement of an Oracle Customer Support Engineer (CSE).

To set up and activate the VSM asset for Oracle ASR:

Collect VSM Information

Before configuring the VSM to use the ASR service, collect the following information:

1.

2.

3.

Identify the VSM asset’s IP address.

Identify the VSM asset’s serial number.

Verify that the VSM asset and the ASR Manager are in the same subnet.

Create a Service Request (SR)

To engage an Oracle CSE to configure the VSM asset, you must submit a Service

Request (SR):

1.

Log in to My Oracle Support and submit an SR for an Oracle CSE to configure the

VSM for ASR: https://support.oracle.com

2.

When you submit the SR, include the following information:

Service Identifier (SI).

Request the CSE reference MOS note ID 1523811.1.

When the Oracle CSE arrives to configure VSM for ASR, be prepared to provide the following VSM asset information:

IP address.

Subnet.

Netmask.

Complete ASR Activation and Verify VSM Configuration

Once the Oracle CSE has configured your VSM asset for ASR, complete ASR activation for VSM devices by running the following commands:

1.

On the ASR Manager, activate the VSM asset with the activate_storage -d command:

a.

To activate a single VSM asset: asr> activate_storage -d VSM_SVA -i <IP address>

For a successful ASR Asset activation, output should look like this:

Successfully submitted activation for the asset

IP Address: <IP address>

Serial Number: <serial number>

The e-mail address associated with the registration id for this asset's ASR

Manager will receive an e-mail highlighting the asset activation status and any additional instructions for completing activation.

Sample 3

This ASR Manager is registered with ASR Manager relay http://host123.test.com:8928/asr

4.4 ASR Audit Logging

When the ASR Manager sends or attempts to send a message about an ASR Asset, that message and its corresponding status is included in an audit log in the following directory:

/var/opt/asrmanager/log/auditlog

Each day, a new audit log file is created to collect all unique activity from the ASR

Manager. By default, a maximum of

30 days

of log files are maintained. After 30 days, the oldest log file is deleted.

You can use these logs to perform troubleshooting analysis on your qualified ASR

Assets. A typical log file summarizes all ASR activity for any ASR Asset associated with the ASR Manager. Duplicate activity for a single asset is not recorded. For example, if a message from the ASR Manager fails to be sent to the Oracle ASR

Infrastructure, then each retry attempt will not be recorded in the log.

For example, an ASR Audit Log file will look like this:

<sample log file showing two or three monitored assets>

By default, ASR Audit Logging is

enabled

. Use the following commands from the ASR

Manager to configure and modify the ASR Audit Logging feature:

ASR Command

asr> enable_audit_log asr> disable_audit_log asr> set_audit_log_days

[1-30] asr> get_audit_log_days asr> enable_asr_manager asr> disable_asr_manager

Description

.

Whether you are on an ASR Asset or the ASR Manager, enter the IP address of the

ASR Manager.

Enter the SNMP port used to send hardware telemetry to the ASR Manager. The default port is

162

.

When the test alert is sent, check the e-mail contact of the My Oracle Support account associated with the ASR installation.

Note:

If this test fails on Solaris 10, be sure that the

/usr/sfw/bin/snmptrap

exists and Solaris netsnmp

library is installed on the asset.

4.7 Add/Remove Telemetry Traps from ASR Asset(s)

The procedures in this section explain how to enable or disable telemetry trap destinations on ASR Asset(s). A trap destination is where the telemetry data is sent.

During ASR installation, each asset is configured by setting trap destinations from the asset system. In all cases, the trap destination specified is the ASR Manager system, which centrally collects the telemetry data sent from ASR Asset(s). Even if the ASR

Manager itself is configured to send telemetry data, its trap destination must be this same ASR Manager.

4-12

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

Add/Remove Telemetry Traps from ASR Asset(s)

Reasons for enabling traps include:

Traps were not enabled during installation.

Traps need to be enabled as part of troubleshooting tasks.

Reasons for disabling traps include:

IP address of ASR Manager changed. If this situation occurs, you need to disable the traps, then re-enable the traps with the new IP information.

Stopping the use of ASR and/or you want to minimize telemetry traffic.

Before continuing, be mindful of the following:

You should know what telemetry sources exist on any particular ASR system.

Refer to

"Verifying Telemetry" on page 1-7.

An active ASR Manager should already be fully installed. Refer to

Chapter 2,

"Installing and Registering ASR Manager Software."

4.7.1 Add/Remove Telemetry Traps from Solaris 10 FMA Systems

Follow the procedure below to add or remove a trap destination for systems using

Solaris 10 FMA telemetry.

1.

2.

3.

To add a Solaris FMA telemetry trap, go to

"Enabling FMA Telemetry for Solaris 10

ASR Assets" on page 3-5.

To remove a trap destination, make sure you are logged in as root on the system whose telemetry trap you wish to remove. This could be either an ASR Manager or an ASR Asset system. Keep in mind that this process stops telemetry from being sent to the ASR Manager. It does not remove the telemetry software itself nor disables its operation (for example, FMA).

Go to the directory where you previously untarred the ASR Asset Bundle file, and then go to the specific ASR Asset Bundle directory, if needed. For example:

If on an ASR Asset: cd /

file_copy_location

/asrassetbundle

If on the ASR Manager system: cd /opt/asrmanager/asrassetbundle/asrassetbundle

Note:

Refer to "Installing the ASR Asset Bundle - Solaris 10 Only" on page 3-4 if you have issues locating the

asrassetbundle

directory and/or asrassetmenu.sh

script (below).

4.

Launch the ASR Asset Menu:

./asrassetmenu.sh

Welcome to the ASR asset menu

----------------------------------------------

1) Add a trap-destination to FMA agent

4.9 Unregister ASR

When you installed ASR, you registered it with the transport server

(transport.oracle.com) using your My Oracle Support username. The registration is performed on the ASR Manager system, as is an unregister if required. Reasons for unregistering ASR can include the following:

1.

If your current My Oracle Support account is no longer valid, as in a case when the e-mail contact is no longer associated with the company. The e-mail address associated with the My Oracle Support login is used by ASR to send a variety of

ASR notifications, such as status reports. In this case, ASR should be unregistered and then re-registered with the new account information.

If the server and ASR handshake becomes corrupted.

To unregister ASR:

From the ASR Manager system, run: asr> unregister

2.

Once unregistered, ASR cannot send hardware fault telemetry to Oracle’s backend systems.

To register ASR, refer to "Registering the ASR Manager" on page 2-3 for instructions.

4.10 Starting and Stopping ASR Manager

This section explains how to stop and start your complete ASR environment. There are several reasons why you may want to do this, as listed below:

Telemetry rules or other image upgrade to ASR.

4.10.1 Stop ASR Manager

Follow the procedure below to stop ASR Manager:

1.

2.

Open a terminal window and log in as root on the ASR Manager system.

Run the following commands:

For Solaris: svcadm disable asrm

(stops ASR Manager)

4-16

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

Enable/Disable ASR Assets

For Linux: service asrm stop

(stops ASR Manager)

3.

Once ASR is stopped, you can perform the desired maintenance tasks. Once complete, continue to the next section to restart ASR.

4.10.2 Start ASR Manager

Follow the procedure below to restart ASR Manager:

1.

2.

Open a terminal window and log in as root on the ASR Manager system.

Run the following commands:

For Solaris: svcadm enable asrm

(starts ASR Manager)

For Linux: service asrm start

(starts ASR Manager)

3.

Be sure that ASR can send information to the transport.oracle.com

servers by running the following command: asr> test_connection

4.11 Enable/Disable ASR Assets

Follow the procedures below to enable or disable ASR Asset(s). Regardless of which asset you wish to enable or disable, this action is always performed on the ASR

Manager system. The most common reasons to disable ASR Asset(s) are for system maintenance or if an asset is "noisy" in terms of sending an excess of telemetry data.

Disabling an ASR Asset stops the ASR Manager from sending fault telemetry to Oracle for that asset.

4.11.1 Disable ASR Assets

1.

Open a terminal window and log in to the ASR Manager system as root.

2.

Run any one of the following commands depending on your circumstance. Use the IP address or the host name of the asset you wish to disable. If you disable the

ASR Manager itself, only its telemetry will be stopped.

All enabled ASR Asset(s) that send telemetry to this ASR Manager will continue

, and the ASR Manager will continue to forward fault telemetry to Oracle’s backend systems.

■ asr> disable_asset -i

IP_address

asr> disable_asset -h

host name

asr> disable_asset -s

subnet

(used to disable a group of assets within the subnet)

4.11.2 Enable ASR Assets

After you have disabled an ASR asset, you can re-enable it when you are ready for

ASR to begin transmitting telemetry data.

1.

Open a terminal window and log in to the ASR Manager system as root.

Managing Your Oracle ASR Environment

4-17

Deactivate/Activate ASR Assets

3.

4.

2.

Run any one of the following commands depending on your circumstance. Use the IP address or the host name of the asset you wish to enable. Once enabled, the asset will send hardware telemetry data to the ASR Manager and faults will be sent to Oracle’s backend systems.

■ asr> enable_asset -i

IP_address

asr> enable_asset -h

host name

■ asr> enable_asset -s

subnet

(used to enable a group of assets within the subnet)

Once complete, a successfully enabled message is displayed.

To confirm the asset is enabled, you can generate a test event using either one of the following command options:

■ asr> send_test -i

IP_address

asr> send_test -h

host name

Note:

The send_test

command validates the ASR Manager connection to Oracle and the ASR activation status of the asset.

It does not validate the network connection from the asset to the ASR

Manager.

5.

The status of the test event is sent to the e-mail address of the My Oracle Support account associated with the ASR installation.

4.12 Deactivate/Activate ASR Assets

Deactivating an ASR Asset is done when you are replacing the asset or removing it entirely from the ASR system. When you deactivate an ASR Asset, ASR can no longer transmit telemetry data from this asset to Oracle.

Note:

If you need to unregister your ASR Asset for Solaris 11, run: asradm unregister

This command unregisters and disables your ASR Asset.

The following topics are described:

Deactivate/Activate ASR Assets from My Oracle Support

Deactivate/Activate ASR Assets from the ASR Manager

Reactivate/Deactivate All ASR Assets Associated with an ASR Manager

4.12.1 Deactivate/Activate ASR Assets from My Oracle Support

1.

4.12.2 Deactivate/Activate ASR Assets from the ASR Manager

Follow these instructions to deactivate/activate an ASR Asset from the ASR Manager:

1.

2.

Open a terminal window and log in to the ASR Manager system as root.

Run any one of the following commands depending on your circumstance. Use the IP address or the host name of the asset you wish to deactivate.

■ asr> deactivate_asset -i

IP_address

asr> deactivate_asset -h

host name

asr> deactivate_asset -s

subnet

(used to enable a group of assets within the subnet)

Note:

When you deactivate an ASR Asset, you cannot re-enable it. If you want to enable it again for ASR, you must re-activate it. Refer to

"Activating ASR Assets" on page 3-16.

3.

Once an asset is deactivated, you should also stop the hardware telemetry from being sent from the asset (even though the telemetry data is ignored by ASR once sent).

4.12.3 Reactivate/Deactivate All ASR Assets Associated with an ASR Manager

If you have multiple ASR Assets reporting to an ASR Manager, you can activate them all with one command: asr> send_activations -a

Uninstalling ASR Manager

Will you be upgrading to a newer version of ASR Manager [y,n,q]:

2.

Enter

y

to continue the process.

Remove the Oracle Automated Service Manager (OASM) package from the ASR

Manager system. Removing this package is optional and is often done to reduce system overhead. If you have other applications (for example, Secure File

Transport) running under OASM, then do not remove it.

For Solaris:

pkgrm SUNWsasm

For Linux with OASM 1.5 or later:

rpm -e SUNWsasm

For Linux with OASM 1.4.2 or earlier:

rpm -e --noscripts SUNWsasm

Note:

There is a known issue when uninstalling OASM 1.4.2 (or earlier) on Linux using the rpm -e SUNWsasm

command. Using this command to remove OASM 1.4.2 (or earlier) completely removes the crontab

entries for OASM.

This uninstallation issue has been resolved with OASM 1.5. To prevent losing any crontab entries, you can uninstall OASM 1.4.2 (or earlier) with the following command: rpm -e --noscripts SUNWsasm

4.13.3 ASR 5.0 and Later: Removing ASR Completely

1.

For all ASR Asset systems, remove telemetry traps that send hardware telemetry to the ASR Manager. Follow these steps:

2.

3.

Identify what telemetry sources reside on the systems. If uncertain, refer to

Verifying Telemetry

.

Remove the telemetry traps. Refer to

Add/Remove Telemetry Traps from ASR

Asset(s) . If you are collecting telemetry from the ASR Manager itself, be sure

to remove those traps as well.

2.

If the results of the above commands do not indicate the Data Transport Service is operating, you must resolve your network connection issue. Listed below are possible resolutions:

Determine if your network's DNS configuration is able to resolve transport.oracle.com

. You may need to configure your firewall to enable outbound Internet access to transport.oracle.com.

If DNS is not available on the ASR Manager host, you may need to manually add an entry for transport.oracle.com

and its IP address to the

/etc/hosts file. Use any DNS lookup service on the Internet to determine the IP address for transport.oracle.com

.

You may need to contact your network administrator for assistance. Refer to

Verifying Your Network Connection

for the specific ASR network requirements.

If you use a proxy server, the issue could be that the proxy information has not yet been configured to ASR. This is done by registering ASR, as discussed in the following procedure.

4.15 ASR Integration with Enterprise Monitoring Systems

Other environments are set up to use different enterprise monitoring systems (e.g.,

IBM Tivoli, HP OpenView, etc.). Beginning with ASR 3.0, integration with My Oracle

Support allows sending ASR service-request information to these systems. Once installed and properly configured, ASR provides the following integration features with enterprise monitoring systems:

Ability to configure SNMP trap destination from ASR Manager to enterprise monitoring systems.

Send case creation and test alert messages to enterprise monitoring systems.

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

ASR Integration with Enterprise Monitoring Systems

■ xVM Ops Center

Any monitoring tool that can receive an SNMP v2c trap

During installation of the ASR software package, the SNMP trap destination can be configured from the ASR Manager host to monitoring systems. Once the ASR-capable assets are activated, ASR is designed to generate a service request after specific fault events are detected. Once the service request is opened, the Oracle Support coverage and response times are delivered in accordance with your Oracle Premier Support or

Warranty Contract.

Note:

Because of ASR 3.0 integration with My Oracle Support, there are changes in the Service Request format. The service request number format in the notification trap is not correct if you are using any version older than ASR 3.0 manager. See

"Using Auto Update to

Manually Upgrade ASR Manager Software" for instructions on

upgrading to the latest version of ASR.

The ASR Manager polls the ASR backend whenever a fault event or test alert occurred and updates its local database with service request or test alert information. Once the service request/test alert information is available to the ASR Manager, it sends an

SNMP v2c trap to the enterprise monitoring systems and include the following service request/test alert data defined in the ASR MIB:

Host name

IP address

Serial number

Platform type

Fault information (one line description)

Fault information knowledge link

Service Request number

Link to Service Request number

Service Request status information

(for "unable to create SR" problems)

Severity of Service Request

SR creation time

Fault detection time

Customer Contact information

4.15.1 Managing SNMP Trap Destinations for Service Request Notifications

Follow the procedure below to configure SNMP trap destinations for ASR Service

Request notifications. You can create up to 10 notification trap destinations.

1.

Set ASR notification trap destination: asr> set_notification_trap [-i ipAddress -p port -c community] [-h hostname -p port -c community]

For example: asr> set_notification_trap -i 127.0.0.1 -p 162 -c public

Note:

Port "162" in the example is the destination port on your monitoring system. The notification trap will be sent

only

when a new service request (SR) is created successfully, and also when the test SR

(test SNMP alert from the ASR asset menu) is successful

5.3 ASR Manager Crash Recovery

In cases where an ASR Manager experiences a critical failure, you can set up a new

ASR Manager and reconfigure ASR Assets to report to the new host. The following steps describe a sample scenario:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

An ASR Manager is set up (e.g., host name:

ASRHOST01

, IP address:

10.10.10.1

) and configured on the network. This ASR host is registered and activated to itself.

All ASR assets are configured to report failures to the ASR Manager host

(

ASRHOST01

), and all ASR assets are activated on the host.

A critical failure occurs in the cabinet of

ASRHOST01

(for example: a fire destroys the system and its data). The assets need to be attached to a different ASR

Manager host (e.g., host name:

ASRHOST02

).

A new ASR Manager is set up (e.g., host name:

ASRHOST02

, IP address:

10.10.10.2

) and configured on the network. The new ASR host is registered and activated to itself.

All ASR assets are now re-configured to report failures to the new ASR Manager host

ASRHOST02

, and the trap destination is changed to report failures to

ASRHOST02

.

All ASR assets are now activated on

ASRHOST02

Note:

In order to reduce the additional work with moving the ASR

Manager to a different location (e.g., from

ASRHOST1

to

ASRHOST2

), you can create an ASR backup on another host or on the existing host. Creating a backup is crucial when recovering from a

crash (see "ASR Backup and Restore" on page 4-14 for a details on

creating an ASR backup).

5.4 ASR - No Heartbeat

Heartbeat is configured to run once every day via an internal timer thread. If there is no response after approximately 48 hours, the unit will be marked as a 'Heartbeat

Failure' unit.

You can check to see if any ASR Manager or ASR Asset are in

Heartbeat Failure

by reviewing the ASR status in My Oracle Support.

If you feel that ASR Manager is configured correctly, then you can troubleshoot your

ASR Manager hardware to resolve the problem. See MOS knowledge article 1346328.1 for the instructions to your particular hardware: https://support.oracle.com/rs?type=doc&id=1346328.1

5.5 ASR Assets for Solaris 11 Troubleshooting

In cases where you are having issues with configuring ASR on Solaris 11 assets using the asradm

command, then review the status of the following asr-notify

SMF service: svcs asr-notify

Output should look like this:

Note:

If the asr-notify

service status is in maintenance mode, then clear the maintenance mode: svcadm clear asr-notify re-register the Solaris 11 asset with ASR manager

5.6 Resolve ASR Manager Java Path Location in asr.conf

File

If you have an incorrect or old version of Java installed, the ASR Manager will not

start. The command to start ASR Manager will report the following message (see Start

ASR Manager for Solaris and Linux command samples):

*************************************************************************

Warning! An old Java version ( 1.5 ) was detected (tried

'/usr/jdk/jdk1.5.0_16/bin/java').

Oracle Automated Service Manager requires a Java version of 1.6 or higher to run correctly.

You can set 'java.exec' property in file

/var/opt/asrmanager/configuration/asr.conf

to point to JAVA 1.7 or later

Java can be downloaded from http://www.java.com

*************************************************************************

1.

Check the Java version you have installed. From the ASR Manager, run: java -version

2.

See

Verifying Java Requirements for details of the Java version requirements for

ASR. ASR requires Java 7 (1.7.0_13) or later or Oracle Java 8 (1.8.0_25 or later).

Get the current Java path location. From the ASR Manager, run: cat /var/opt/asrmanager/configuration/asr.conf | grep ^java.exec

5.7.5 Unable to Contact Service Tags on Asset

This message indicates that the activation failed during Service Tags discovery. The issue can be either Service Tags is not installed on the ASR Asset or is installed but not running. Also the issue can be network connectivity between ASR Manager and the

ASR Asset. Complete the following checks:

1.

Check if Service Tags is installed and running on an ASR Asset. Run: stclient -x

2.

If you cannot run this command, either Service Tags is not installed or not online.

Check if the Service Tags services are installed and online using the following command: svcs | grep reg

3.

The results should be similar to the following example: online Aug_23 svc:/application/stosreg:default online Aug_23 svc:/application/sthwreg:default

4.

5.

If you cannot find these services, it means Service Tags is not installed on the ASR asset.

If the Service Tags services are online, check if psncollector

is online. Run: svcs | grep psncollector

6.

The results should be similar to the following example: online Sep_09 svc:/application/psncollector:default

7.

Make sure that there are no TCP Wrappers installed on the ASR asset to prevent any service tags discovery issues. Run the following command from the ASR

Manager system: wget http://

[assetHostNameOrIPaddress]

:6481/stv1/agent/

8.

If there are TCP wrappers installed on the ASR asset, edit

/etc/hosts.allow

on the asset by adding: in.stlisten:

[ASR Manager host name]

5.7.6 Unknown or Empty Service Tags on Asset

1.

View the ASR Asset’s serial number using the following URL: http://

[AgentipAddress]

:6481/stv1/agent/

2.

If product name is empty or "unknown," then check if the Hardware Service Tags are installed and online. Run: svcs | grep sthwreg

The results should look like this: online Aug_23 svc:/application/sthwreg:default

3.

If the serial number is incorrect, contact Oracle Support to resolve the problem.

ASR Manager and High Availability

Allow a Non-root User to Manage an ASR Manager Service

A.1 ASR Manager and High Availability

The following are steps that were used for a more recoverable ASR Manager setup than a single server. This setup shows one way without using complex cluster software but there are many other ways.

Using Solaris 10 Local/Nonglobal Zone

Using Linux and IP Route Package

A.1.1 Using Solaris 10 Local/Nonglobal Zone

The concept is to select 2 servers that are identical and has shared storage. A local/non-global zone path/location is setup on the shared storage where the ASR

Manager software is installed. The local/non-global zone can then be moved from primary server in the event that the primary server fails and cannot be brought back on-line in a timely manner, to the secondary server where the local/non-global zone and can be brought up. ASR Manager is installed on the local/non-global zone and allows the application to be moved between primary and secondary server.

The shared storage can be direct fiber attached, SAN, iSCSI etc. In this example we use direct fiber attached storage and ZFS. The basics apply no matter what the shared storage is.

The basic concept for moving the local/non-global zone is shutdown ASR local/non-global zone on primary server, export the ZFS zpool on primary server.

Then on secondary server, import zpool and boot local/nonglobal zone.

Several things to keep in mind when preparing the setup and process used for fail-over.

It is preferred to use identical servers for primary and secondary host. This allows you to move the local/non-global zone from one server without having to run zonecfg to change network interface device or storage device.

Both primary and secondary server must have the same Solaris 10 revision and same patches installed.

Other ASR Manager Administration

ASR Manager and High Availability

Set zone autoboot to false. This avoids situations of the local zone/non-global zone trying to be booted on both servers.

If using ZFS, be sure to only import the zpool to one server. ZFS does not support a zpool being imported to 2 separate hosts at the same time.

In this example we setup the local/non-global zone manually on the secondary server. One can use the zone detach and attach within a script if preferred.

Required hardware setup:

Two Sun Servers that are the same and support ASR Manager requirements. See

Verifying Oracle ASR Assets

for more details.

Share storage that has a file system that can be moved between primary and secondary server or supports the ability to have file system mounted on both hosts at the same time such as a cluster supported file system.

ASR Manager software.

A.1.1.1 Setup and Overview

Initial setup and overview process of primary and secondary hosts:

1.

2.

3.

4.

Build two Sun servers with Solaris 10 Update 6 (10u6) and later.

Attach shared storage to both primary and secondary host.

Create file system on shared storage and test the move (export/import) between primary and secondary host.

Create ASR local/non-global zone for ASR Manager

5.

6.

Copy the zone cfg.xml

file and the zone index file entry from primary host to secondary host

Verify you can shut down ASR Manager local/non-global zone on primary host and bring up the ASR Manager on secondary host.

7.

8.

Install and verify ASR Manager (see

Installing ASR Manager Software ).

Finally configure ASR Manager to monitor systems.

The following is an example of moving zone and ZFS file system from primary host to secondary host:

In this example we will use the following labels:

Local/non-global host name: asrmanager

Primary server: asrprd-01

Secondary server: asrprd-02

Zpool name for ZFS:

/asr-zones

Path to ASR zone:

/asr-zones/asrmanager

At this point the primary host has the ZFX zpool imported and asrmanager local/non-global zone is booted:

Show running asrmanager local/non-global zone: asrprd-01# zoneadm list -vc

A.1.1.2 Moving from Primary Host to Secondary Host

Note:

This step is required in case of any issues or maintenance work with the primary server.

Steps used to move from primary host to secondary host:

1.

Shut down asrmanager local/non-global zone: asrprd-01# zoneadm -z asrmanager halt

2.

Verify zone is shut down: asrprd-01# zoneadm list -vc

Command output should look like this:

ID NAME STATUS PATH BRAND IP

0 global running / native shared

- asrmanager installed /asr-zones/asrmanager native shared

3.

Export ZFS zpool: asrprd-01# zpool export asr-zones

4.

Verify ZFS zpool has been exported: asrprd-01# zpool list

Expected command output should be: no pools available

Now that the asrmanager local/non-global zone has been shut down and the ZFS zpool exported, log in to the secondary host and import the zpool and boot the local/non-global zone:

1.

To show that ZFS zpool is not imported: asrprd-02# zpool list

2.

Import the zone ZFS zpool where asrmanager zone resides: asrprd-02# zpool import asr-zones

3.

Verify ZFS zpool has been imported:

5.

Boot asrmanager local/non-global zone: asrprd-02# zoneadm -z asrmanager boot

6.

Verify asrmanager

local/non-global zone has booted: asrprd-02# zoneadm list -vc

ID NAME STATUS PATH BRAND IP

0 global running / native shared

1 asrmanager running /asr-zones/asrmanager native shared

ASR Manager is now running in a local/non-global zone on the secondary host.

A.1.2 Using Linux and IP Route Package

The concept is to select two servers that are identical and have shared storage. A virtual IP address is set up using the IP Route utility to send ASR traffic to and from the source IP using the virtual IP. Shared storage is mounted between each host where the ASR Manager software is installed.

Using the IP Route utility, the virtual IP that ASR Manager uses can be moved from the primary server (for example, in the event that the primary server fails and cannot be brought back on-line in a timely manner) to the secondary server where the

VIP/source route can be brought up. Finally, the shared storage file systems are mounted, and ASR Manager can be started.

The shared storage can be direct fiber attached, SAN, iSCSI etc. The example below uses direct fiber attached storage and ext3 file systems. The basics apply no matter what shared storage is used.

The basic concept for moving from the primary server to the secondary server is:

On the primary server:

1.

2.

Shut down ASR Manager on the primary host (if primary host is up).

Run the ip route

command to remove source route.

3.

4.

Unplumb VIP.

Unmount file systems that ASR Manager uses.

On the secondary server:

1.

Plumb the VIP.

2.

3.

4.

Run ip route

to add source routing.

Mount file systems.

Start ASR Manager.

A-4

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

ASR Manager and High Availability

Several things to keep in mind when preparing the setup and process used for fail-over.

It is preferred to use identical servers for the primary and secondary host.

Both primary and secondary servers must have the same Linux revision and same patches installed.

Do not start ASR Manager on boot.

If using ext3, do not mount file systems on both hosts at the same time.

Required hardware setup:

Two servers that are the same and support ASR Manager requirements. See

Verifying Oracle ASR Assets

for more details.

Shared storage that has a file system that can be moved between primary and secondary server or supports the ability to have file system mounted on both hosts at the same time (for example, a cluster supported file system).

ASR Manager software.

A.1.2.1 Setup and Overview

Initial setup and overview process of primary and secondary hosts:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

Build two Linux servers with versions such as Oracle Linux update7 and later.

Add IP Route package. The iproute-2.6.18-11.el5.i386.rpm

file was used in the example below. This rpm file is located in the “Server” directory on the Oracle

Linux DVD.

Attach shared storage to both primary and secondary hosts.

Create file systems

/opt

and

/var/opt

on shared storage and test the move of file system between primary and secondary host.

Plumb VIP interface and install/test IP Route source routing using the VIP's IP.

(Read IP Route documentation)

Install and verify ASR Manager (see

Installing ASR Manager Software ).

The example below shows how to move the ASR Manager from a primary host to a secondary host.

In this example we will use the following labels:

Virtual IP: asrmanager / 10.10.0.20

Primary server: asrprd-01 / 10.10.0.10

Secondary server: asrprd-02 / 10.10.0.11

1.

File system mounts for ASR manager:

/opt

and

/var/opt

On the primary host, create the virtual IP, using the IP Route utility for source route and file system mount:

Verify file systems

/opt

and

/var/opt

are mounted:

[[email protected]]# df | grep opt

/dev/sdc 281722700 243924 267168072 1% /opt

/dev/sdb 281722700 243776 267168220 1% /var/opt

2.

Show the source IP:

Other ASR Manager Administration

[[email protected]]# ip route show

10.79.208.0/24 dev eth0 scope link src 10.10.0.20 default via 10.10.0.1 dev eth0

3.

Plumb the virtual IP interface:

[[email protected]]# /sbin/ifconfig eth0:0 10.10.0.20/24 broadcast 10.79.208.255

4.

Change the source IP:

[[email protected]]# ip route change 10.79.208.0/24 dev eth0 src 10.10.0.20

5.

Verify the source IP is set to a virtual IP:

[[email protected]]# ip route

10.79.208.0/24 dev eth0 scope link src 10.10.0.20

default via 10.10.0.1 dev eth0

After source IP is set to the virtual IP, you can ping another host from the primary server and should see source IP of the virtual IP on that host and no longer the IP of the primary server.

At this point, install the ASR Manager software which should install in

/opt

and

/var/opt

(see Installing ASR Manager Software ).

To move the ASR Manager and the virtual IP to a secondary host:

1.

Log in to the primary server.

2.

Shut down ASR Manager: service asrm stop

3.

Change source IP route back:

[[email protected]]# ip route change 10.79.208.0/24 dev eth0 src 10.10.0.10

4.

Verify the source IP is back to the primary server IP address:

[[email protected]]# ip route show

10.79.208.0/24 dev eth0 scope link src 10.10.0.10 default via 10.10.0.1 dev eth0

5.

Unplumb the virtual IP interface:

[[email protected]]# /sbin/ifconfig eth0:0 down

6.

7.

8.

Unmount the

/opt

and

/var/opt

file systems from shared storage.

Log in into secondary server.

If you are running JRE 1.6._04 or above (instead of JDK 1.6._04 or above), then ASR Auto Update will fail because of a missing Java jar utility. This Java jar utility that ASR Auto Update uses is not available with JRE. This issue can be corrected by using the JDK instead of the JRE.

Note:

If you have any issues with using the JDK instead of the JRE, you can manually download and upgrade to ASR Manager 4.5 from: http://oracle.com/asr

ASR Manager Release 4.5 corrects the Java jar utility issue, which will allow ASR Auto Update to work with the JRE.

Resolution:

To check for the Java jar utility, run the following command as root on the

ASR Manager server:

# jar

If the Java jar utility is not available, the following output will be shown: jar: command not found

If you receive this error message, then run the following command to check the JRE location:

# ls -al /usr/java

Output should look like this:

C-6

ASR_INSTALL_FAILED_JAR_TOOL_MISSING lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Dec 15 09:14 /usr/java -> /usr/j2se/jre1.6.0_xx

To resolve this missing Java jar utility issue:

1.

Update Java to JDK (from JRE):

a.

Change the Java pointing to JDK instead of JRE:

# rm /usr/java

b.

Add a link with the JDK version (instead of JRE). For example:

# ln -s /usr/jdk/jdk1.6.0_xx /usr/java

c.

Test the link:

# ls -al /usr/java

d.

Output should look like this: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Apr 16 14:52 /usr/java -> /usr/ jdk/jdk1.6.0_xx

Note:

Replace

_xx

in the above example with the specific JDK version running on the ASR Manager server.

Also, ensure that you are using the same Java version in the

/var/opt/SUNWsasm/configuration/config.ini

file for the java.exec

property.

e.

Verify the Java jar utility is available. As root on the ASR Manager, run:

# jar

Note:

You may need to manually create the symbolic link for jar. For example: ln -s /usr/java/bin/jar /usr/bin

2.

Get the Auto Update status after fixing the Java issue. From the ASR Manager, run: asr> show_version

3.

You should now see a message that newer version of ASR Manager is available for download.

Run Auto Update. From the ASR Manager, run: asr> autoupdate

4.

Once the Auto Update process is complete, run the following commands to verify the Auto Update and Connectivity status: asr> show_version asr> test_connection asr> heartbeat

ASR Auto Update Error Codes

C-7

ASR_PREP_FAILED_RPM-BUILD_MISSING

C.14 ASR_PREP_FAILED_RPM-BUILD_MISSING

Problem:

ASR Auto Update will not work on Linux, if the Linux server is missing the rpm-build package. If the rpm-build package is missing you will see the following message during ASR rpm install:

Warning: rpm-build package is not installed on this server. ASR Manager Auto

Update functionality will not work unless the rpm-build package is installed.

Auto Update functionality will be disabled until rpm-build package is installed.

Please install the rpm-build package and then enable Auto Update by running \"asr enable_autoupdate\".

This error message will also appear in a log file if the Auto Update fails because of the missing rpm-build package. The log file is located at:

If Auto Update is running from ASR Manager is 4.9 to 5.x, then the log file is located at:

/var/opt/SUNWsasm/log/sw-asr-autoupdate.log

If Auto Update is running from 5.x to 5.x, then the log file is located at:

/var/opt/asrmanager/log/autoupdate.log

Resolution:

To install the rpm-build package, run either of the following commands on the Linux server: yum install rpm-build or: sudo yum install rpm-build

After the rpm-build package is installed, enable ASR Auto Update. From the ASR

Manager, run: asr> enable_autoupdate

C.15 ASR_PREP_FAILED_SELINUX_ENFORCING

Problem:

ASR Auto Update will not work on Linux if the Linux server has the seLinux

variable is not set in "permissive" mode. If the

SELinux

variable is set in

enforcing

mode, then the following message will be displayed on the command line if the autoupdate

command is executed manually.

If the autoupdate

command is started via timer, then the following message will be displayed in following log file:

SELINUX is set in \"enforcing\" mode. Cannot continue with autoupdate. Please refer to the troubleshooting section of ASR Installation guide to resolve this issue.

/var/opt/asrmanager/log/asr.log

Resolution:

To configure the

SELinux

variable in

permissive

mode, edit the

/etc/selinux/config

file with the following variable setting:

Configure SELINUX=permissive

After updating the

/etc/selinux/config

file then, as the Linux root

user, run the reboot

command to restart the system.

Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR) Manager User's Guide

ASR_INSTALL_FAILED_JAR_UNPACKING_FAILED

C.16 ASR_PREPARATION_FAILED_ASRM_VERSION_NULL

Problem:

The

ASRM

package version is not available.

Resolution:

Verify that the ASR Manager package installation is valid:

Solaris: pkginfo -l asrmanager

Linux: rpm -qa asrmanager

Remove the ASR Manager package manually and install the latest version manually:

Solaris: pkgrm asrmanager

Linux: rpm -e asrmanager

Download the latest ASR Manager from MOS download site and follow the instructions in

Installing ASR Manager Software

to install the software manually.

C.17 ASR_PREPARATION_FAILED_SSO_NULL

Problem:

Oracle Single Sign-on (SSO) user name is not available.

Resolution:

Ensure ASR Manager is registered with Oracle Infrastructure: asr> test_connection

If the test connection fails, then register ASR Manager with Oracle Infrastructure: asr> register

C.18 ASR_PREPARATION_FAILED_INVALID_OS

Problem:

The Auto Update process is not able to get the operating system (OS) information from the server.

Resolution:

Identify the current operating system information: uname

Only the Oracle Solaris and Linux operating systems are supported.

If the server is running the Solaris OS, then the result should be:

SunOS

If the server is running the Linux OS, then the result should be:

Linux

C.19 ASR_PREP_FAILED_MISSING_EXECUTE_PERMS

Problem:

Some of the scripts and tools required for Auto Update do not have execute permissions.

Resolution:

Ensure the ASR Manager user has execute permission for the contents in the

/var/opt/asrmanager

directory. Also, verify that tools such as rpm-build

and getenforce

are executable by the ASR Manager user.

C.20 ASR_INSTALL_FAILED_JAR_UNPACKING_FAILED

Problem:

The Auto Update jar unpacking has failed on the ASR client. Most likely cause for this issue is lack of disk space on the ASR Manager server.

ASR Auto Update Error Codes

C-9

ASR_INSTALL_FAILED_SNMP_PORT_CHECK_FAILED

Resolution:

Run the df -k

command to check the disk space on the server.

If the server is running low on disk space, then try to clear the space or add more disk space on the server.

C.21 ASR_INSTALL_FAILED_SNMP_PORT_CHECK_FAILED

Problem:

After the Auto Update has run, the updated ASR Manager application may not be able to bind the SNMP port. In that situation, Auto Update will fail and restore to the existing version.

The following message will appear in the

/var/opt/asrmanager/log/asr.log

log file:

After upgrading to $DOWNLOAD_PKG_NAME SNMP port binding failed. Restored to existing version.

Resolution:

If you are running Auto Update to update from ASR Manager 4.9 to ASR

Manager 5.x, then run the following commands: svcadm disable sasm svcadm disable asrm svcadm enable asrm svcadm enable sasm

C.22 ASR_INSTALL_FAILED_DEPLOYMENT_SCRIPT_MISSING

Problem:

The Auto Update package is missing the deployment script.

Resolution:

The Auto Update jar

file could be corrupted. Download and install the

ASR packages manually from My Oracle Support ( https://support.oracle.com

). See

Manually Upgrading ASR Manager Software for more details.
