Manual or DSM/SCM Installation Overview

Web ViewPoint can be installed using the DSM/SCM tool or can be installed manually.

For DSM/SCM, use the IPSETUP.exe program to upload the files from the CD / PC to the NonStop server. Follow the screens on the Wizard and provide the necessary information as prompted. It is strongly recommended that the user have SUPER.SUPER credentials. Once the IPSETUP program completes ensure that the files listed below have been transferred in the correct format and the file codes are correct.

For Manual Installation, use the files within WS_SW/WVP Installation folder and follow the below instructions.

  1. Note: Make sure your <installation-subvol> subvolume is empty before starting the transferring.
  2. Upload the SETUPWVP and UMPPAK (H, J or L series)) to your <installation-subvol> in binary mode.
  3. Run the below set the parameters for Web ViewPoint Installation.

> RUN SETUPWVP

It prompts user to select from the two available install options i.e. Fresh Install or Import over Install

Input ‘F’ for a new installation

If ‘Fresh Install’ option is selected, it prompts user to input the TCP process and the port number.

  • Edit the parameters, if required, and input “S to submit the parameters.

Input ‘I’ for import over installation

If ‘Import over Install’ option is selected, it prompts user to input the location of previous WVP installation followed by TCP process and the port number.

  • Input $VOLUME.SUBVOLUME location of the old Web ViewPoint installation from where you want to import the data files from.

  • Edit the parameters, if required, and input “S to submit the parameters.

  • Input “Y” if you want to start Web ViewPoint without changing/editing any parameters within the configuration files.
  • Input “N” to edit the parameters within the configuration files and start the collector later.

If necessary, follow the following steps in order to change the process names and port number within the configuration files.

1. Edit the “STARTWVP” configuration file, change the process names to unique process names.

stop $WVPMN
stop $WVLST
stop $WVCL8
stop $WVCMN
stop $WVEMN

push #param
clear all

ASSIGN PROGCONF1, UGATCONF
PARAM LISTENER-PROCESS $WVLST
PARAM TCP-PROCESS $ZTC0

RUN PROCMAN/NAME $WVPMN,PRI 160, NOWAIT/

RUN UMPCOL8 /NAME $WVCL8, NOWAIT, TERM $ZHOME/
RUN UMPCMON /NAME $WVCMN, NOWAIT, TERM $ZHOME/
RUN EMSMON /NAME $WVEMN, NOWAIT, TERM $ZHOME/
pop #param

2. Edit the “STOPWVP” configuration file, change the process names to match the ones       from the “STARTWVP” configuration file.

stop $WVPMN
stop $WVLST
stop $WVCL8
stop $WVCMN
stop $WVEMN

status *,prog UMPGATE, stop
status *,prog UMPMEAS, stop
status *,prog EMSLINK, stop

MEASCOM STOP MEASUREMENT UMPACT, NO ADD

3. Edit the “UGATCONF” file and change the port number.

[BASEOBJECT]
OBJECTFILE UMPGATE
OBJECTID OBJID_UMPGATE
PORT 8787
TITLE UMP Gate
MAXPROCESS 20
NUMSTATIC 10

NOTE: Starting from Web ViewPoint H01ABQ-L01ABR, users can now install OSS files with out having to set up the iTP Webserver (i.e. OSS files can be installed in /usr/tandem/wvp ). This iTP Webserver dependency is eliminated by enabling the below PARAM.

[BASEOBJECT]
OBJECTFILE UMPGATE
OBJECTID OBJID_UMPGATE
PORT 8787
TITLE UMP Gate
MAXPROCESS 20
NUMSTATIC 10
PARAM WEBLOCATION /usr/tandem/wvp

4. Edit the “UMPCONF“ file and change the process names, CPU numbers and EMS collector if required. 

(i.e. Change the ems collector defined by the “COLLECTOR” parameter to a unique name)

— Supported products are NTS, RA and PMC.
SET PRODUCT_NAME RA

— SET EMS Log parameters
SET EVENT_LOG COLLECTOR $0
SET EVENT_LOG SSID 1500

— Set UMPGATE parameters

— Set UMPCOL8 parameters
SET UMPCOL8 PROCESS_NAME $WVCL8
comment — CPU number on which the UMPCOL8 backup should run
SET UMPCOL8 BACKUP_CPU 2,3,4,5
SET UMPCOL8 BACKUP_RESTART_LIMIT 50

— Set UMPCMON parameters
comment — CPU number on which the UMPCMON backup should run
SET UMPCMON BACKUP_CPU 2,3,4,5
SET UMPCMON BACKUP_RESTART_LIMIT 50

— Set UMPMEAS parameters
SET UMPMEAS SAMPLE_INTERVAL 15
SET UMPMEAS COLLECT_FOR CPU,PROCESS,DISK

— Set EMSMON parameters
comment — CPU number on which the EMSMON backup should run
SET EMSMON BACKUP_CPU 1,2,3,4,5
SET EMSMON BACKUP_RESTART_LIMIT 50
If necessary, change the EMS collector defined in the “COLLECTOR” parameter of the “UMPCONF” configuration file (default is “$0”) using the following command:
a. > EMSACOLL /NAME $UMP, NOWAIT/

5.Issue the following command to start the WVP host components:
a. > OBEY STARTWVP

OSS

Using OSS mode, set the path to public_html folder of the iTP Webserver (/usr/tandem/webserver/root)

1.Create folder wvp (example: wvpeap)
2.cd wvp
3.Transfer the tar file (which was sent as a part of install package) to the wvp folder
4.Extract the contents of the tar file tar -xvf webviewpoint_.tar
5.Edit the host.json file in the data folder ((/usr/tandem/webserver/root/wvp/data)
Change the IP, Port and Nodename to match that of the installation of the host agent.

6.Open your browser and enter the IP address specified in the host.json file followed by slash and web viewpoint folder name (created in step 1) to access WebViewPoint.
Example:http://nnn.nnn.n.nn/wvpeap
7.To access the lite port, enter the following http://nnn.nnn.n.nn/wvpeap/#/lite
Note: ‘wvpeap’ being the WVP folder created on the iTP Webserver.

NOTE: Starting from Web ViewPoint H01ABQ-L01ABR, users can now install OSS files with out having to set up the iTP Webserver (i.e. OSS files can be installed in /usr/tandem/wvp ).

Using OSS mode, set the path to public_html folder (/usr/tandem/wvp).

1.Create folder wvp (example: wvp)
2.cd wvp
3.Transfer the tar file (which was sent as a part of install package) to the wvp folder

4.Extract the contents of the tar file tar -xvf wvp.tar
5.Edit the host.json file in the data folder (/usr/tandem/wvp/data)
Change the IP, Port and Nodename to match that of the installation of the host agent.

6.Open your browser and enter the IP address specified in the host.json file followed by colon, port number, forward slash and web viewpoint index.html to access WebViewPoint.
Example: http://nnn.nnn.n.nn:8787/index.html
7.To access the lite port, enter the following http://nnn.nnn.n.nn:8787/index.html#/lite
