ada_inventory AC Configuration
Prior to deploying the ada_inventory probe, be sure the following requirements are met:
- You are running CA Unified Infrastructure Management 8.4 or later.
- You are running CA Application Delivery Analysis 10.4 or later.
- The robot onto which the ada_inventory probe will be deployed has http access (port 80/TCP) to the ADA console.
- If you are deploying the ada_inventory probe on a secondary hub (not the primary hub), create the queues to connect the two hubs.
- The ADA console has the .NET Framework 3.5 "HTTP Activation" feature installed and enabled.
At a high level, configuring the probe consists of the following actions:
- Identify the ADA console instances that are monitoring servers and applications.The probe cannot be configured for an ADA console that is already registered with CA PC or CA NPC.
- Configure the ada_inventory probe to point at the ADA console (by specifying the IP Address or hostname).
- Verify the ADA Console Configuration.
Configuring Probe Setup
After you install the probe, configure the probe setup using the UIM Admin Console.
- In theAdd ADA Consoledialog, complete the following fields:
- ADA Console NameA name to identify the ADA console
- ADA Console Hostname or IP AddressThe hostname or IP Address of the ADA console
- Only servers with user appsDefine whether to include all servers or only servers with user-defined applicationsDefault:CheckedUnchecking this check box causes all servers to be included when the inventory is sent from CA ADA to CA UIM.
- Alarm MessageThe level of alarm message sent to UIM if it experiences an error communicating with CA ADA
- ActiveWhether the probe is active or notDefault:Checked
- ClickSave. ClickOKto restart the ada_inventory probe.
- In theProbe Configurationwindow, selectActions, Verify ADA Console Configuration.If the probe detects that the ADA console does not have "HTTP Activation" installed/enabled, the verify action fails. The probe log will contain a descriptive message and the probe will not report "Success" on the verify action.
The most common error is an HTTP 404. This indicates that the "HTTP Activation" feature is not installed on the ADA console.
