Landscapes Page
Use the Landscapes page to view the status for all the landscapes (SpectroSERVERs) that the OneClick server is currently monitoring. You can identify information related to a distributed SpectroSERVER (DSS) setup, including any parent and child landscapes. You can perform a manual synchronization between all distributed models with their corresponding models on the master landscape using the Sync With Master button.
You can manually add or remove landscapes monitored by this OneClick server. You can remove only landscapes that you have manually added.
Landscape_Admin Page.png
From 10.2, the value displayed in the Model Mask column is based on the Landscape Handle type you opt for during installation. The value is 16M if you select Huge Landscape handle type, and 1M if you select Legacy Landscape Handle type, during installation.
Please ensure that the Model Mask is consistent for all landscapes (SpectroSERVERs) in a Distributed SpectroSERVER (DSS) environment.
LDAP Configuration Page
Use the LDAP Configuration page to configure the OneClick webserver to use an external LDAP server for user authentication.
This administration page includes the following settings and functionality:
  • LDAP Server Settings
    Server settings to identify a primary and secondary LDAP server by IP address and port number, use SSL, add an SSL certificate, and specify timeout values when attempting to connect to or query the LDAP server.
  • Save LDAP Passwords to
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    Database
    Lets you give access to OneClick users if the LDAP server is down, based on their last known correct LDAP password.
  • User Name Lookup
    Configure OneClick lookups of usernames, either as a User by Search or a User by Pattern lookup.
  • Test LDAP Configuration
    Once you have configured the OneClick interface with an external LDAP server, lets you test the configuration.
If three consecutive LDAP-based login failures occur, a critical alarm is generated on the VNM that is hosting the Location Server for the OneClick web server.
Primary LDAP Query Authentication Enhancement
10.3.2 now includes a community winning idea to, withdraw from the primary LDAP querying, going forward, for an improved user experience.
DX NetOps Spectrum
login authentication is now the primary authentication for allowed users who have enabled the LDAP integration. If this initial
DX NetOps Spectrum
login authentication fails, then the LDAP authentication takes place.
DX NetOps Spectrum
super users are by default allowed to log in with their
DX NetOps Spectrum
password, regardless of an LDAP account or the LDAP server availability.
LDAP User Group Authentication
From 10.4.2, you can log in to
DX NetOps Spectrum
when it is integrated with LDAP even if the user is not present in
DX NetOps Spectrum
. The user is automatically created in
DX NetOps Spectrum
during the first login. However, only those users who are part of the configured LDAP user groups in
DX NetOps Spectrum
can log in automatically. In
DX NetOps Spectrum
, the administrator must manually create a user group in all the landscapes with the same group name and required privileges as present in LDAP.
Review the following points:
  • The user model is created in
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    in all the available landscapes in which the user group is present.
  • If any landscape is down when the user logs in, then you must manually create the user in the landscape when the landscape is available.
  • If the user is removed from the LDAP server, then the user must be manually removed from the
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    user group in every landscape.
  • If the user is moved from one user group to another in the LDAP server, then you must do it manually in the
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    groups. However, login of the user is not affected for the user even if the user is not moved in
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    .
  • If the user is part of the multiple groups in the LDAP server and matched with the multiple groups configured in
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    , then the first matching group is considered for the user authentication. In this case, the order in which the LDAP server returns the user group names is random. Therefore, matching is not always the same.
Follow these steps:
  1. Log in to OneClick Console.
  2. Create a user group with the same name as present in the LDAP server.
  3. Copy the
    ldap-grps-mappings-config.xml
    file from the
    $SPECROOT\tomcat\webapps\spectrum\WEB-INF\ldap\config
    directory to the
    $SPECROOT\custom\ldap\config
    directory.
  4. Edit the
    ldap-grps-mappings-config.xml
    file.
  5. Set the property
    LDAPGroups authEnabled
    to
    true
    as shown in the following example:
    <LDAPGroups authEnabled="false"> To <LDAPGroups authEnabled="true">
    If the LDAP groups are configured and the
    LDAP groups authEnabled
    property is not set to true, the LDAP user cannot be authenticated in
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    .
  6. Add the group search tag and the search string for each LDAP group.
    <Group searchTag="memberOf" searchString="CN=group_name,CN=Users,DC=company,DC=local"/>
    Ensure that
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    contains the user group with the same name as in the LDAP server.
  7. Save the file.
  8. Restart the OneClick server.
MySQL Password Page
OneClick has its own MySQL Server users and passwords: a basic user (OC_user) and an administrative user (OC_admin). Both are used to access the MySQL reporting database on behalf of
DX NetOps Spectrum
applications such as Report Manager and Service Manager, but the administrative user can also grant privileges to other users for this database. For greater security,
DX NetOps Spectrum
provides the MySQL Password page which lets you change the passwords of the OneClick MySQL users.
Do not attempt to manually change the MySQL user passwords using a MySQL client connection. Storage of the passwords in OneClick depends on MySQL connectivity. As a result, the only safe way to change the passwords is through the OneClick MySQL Password Administration page.
The MySQL Password page contains the following settings:
  • Default User
    Specifies the credentials for the default OneClick MySQL Server user (OC_user) that
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    uses to access the reporting database used in OneClick web applications.
    • Current Password
      Specifies the current password for the OC_user MySQL user.
    • New Password
      Specifies a new password for the OC_user MySQL user.
    • Confirm New Password
      Confirms the new password for the OC_user MySQL user.
  • Admin User
    Specifies the credentials for the administrative OneClick MySQL Server user (OC_admin) that
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    uses to access the reporting database used in OneClick web applications and grant privileges to other users for this database.
    • Current Password
      Specifies the current password for the OC_admin MySQL user.
    • New Password
      Specifies a new password for the OC_admin MySQL user.
    • Confirm New Password
      Confirms the new password for the OC_admin MySQL user.
OneClick maintains the MySQL server user credentials so that it can connect to MySQL. OneClick stores this password in an encrypted form for security purposes.
OneClick Client Configuration Page
OneClick uses the Java Web Start framework developed to launch the OneClick Console from the OneClick home page in a browser. To determine how to launch the OneClick Console (for example, the location of necessary JAR files), the Java Web Start framework relies on several Java Network Launching Protocol (JNLP) configuration files for the launch parameter values.
The OneClick Client Configuration page lets you configure settings associated with the OneClick client. These settings are used by the JNLP files which are located in the directory at the following location:
C:\win32app\SPECTRUM\tomcat\webapps\spectrum
Any modifications that you make to the JNLP files are saved to custom files in the following directory:
$SPECROOT\custom\common\config
  • Supported JRE Versions
    Specifies which versions of JRE can be installed on the client to start OneClick. If none of the specified versions are installed, the user cannot start the OneClick Console from the OneClick home page and, instead, receives an error message. Multiple JRE versions can be specified as needed. When multiple JRE versions are specified, Java Web Start processes precedence from the top of the list to the bottom of the list.
    • Allow new versions
      Allows OneClick clients to run any JRE version beyond the specified required JRE, including both major and minor JRE releases. Please be advised, as with any custom JRE configuration, using a JRE version other than the version which is provided to you could result in undesirable application behavior.
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    supports a documented minimum JRE version level, and supports running the OneClick user interface in that minimum version, or in any later version, unless noted otherwise in the product documentation. We also test with new JRE versions as they become available and update the product documentation, the online Support knowledge base, or both, if specific JRE versions are incompatible.
  • Java Memory Usage
    The Java Memory Usage section lets you set the minimum and maximum size of the object heap for the Java Virtual Machine used by OneClick clients. For more information, see Configure OneClick Client Memory Settings.
    • Minimum Client Memory Usage (megabytes)
      The minimum amount of memory, in megabytes, that must be available on the client to start OneClick.
      Default:
      96
    • Maximum Client Memory Usage (megabytes)
      The maximum amount of memory, in megabytes, that OneClick can use on the client.
      Default:
      1024
  • OneClick Client Inactivity
    Lets you configure OneClick to check clients for inactivity and time inactive clients out. This feature is disabled by default. If enabled, when timeout occurs, users can enter their username and password to continue using the OneClick client. Inactivity is determined by the absence of keyboard or mouse activity is detected for the specified amount of time.
Enable Inactive OneClick Client Timeout
You can configure
DX NetOps Spectrum
to check OneClick clients for inactivity and time out those clients that have been inactive for a specified amount of time. This setting can enhance network security. For example, if a user leaves the OneClick client running unattended on a desktop, it times out.
Follow these steps:
  • Click Administration in the OneClick home page.
    The Administration Pages open.
  • Click OneClick Client Configuration.
    The OneClick Client Configuration page opens.
  • Complete the settings in the OneClick Client Inactivity section as needed:
    • OneClick Client Inactivity Timeout (minutes)
      Specifies the number of minutes of inactivity to allow before timing out (logging off) a OneClick client.
      Default:
      0 (Disabled)
    • Applet Inactivity Timeout (minutes)
      Specifies the number of minutes of inactivity to allow before timing out (logging off) an applet.
      Default:
      0 (Disabled)
    If you have OneClick clients that are dedicated to network monitoring and inactivity is likely, you can remove the Inactivity Timeout privilege for a user. The user cannot receive a timeout if the timeout setting has been specified.
  • Click Save.
    Timeout of inactive OneClick clients is now enabled.
Performance Center Integration Configuration Page
The Performance Center Integration Configuration page lets you configure event sharing between
DX NetOps Spectrum
and CA Performance Center.
The Performance Center Integration Configuration page contains the following settings:
  • Event Polling Interval
    Specifies how frequently
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    queries the Performance Center Event Manager component for events. If you modify this value, the new polling interval takes effect at the next polling cycle.
    Default:
    60 seconds
  • Event Polling
    Enables or disables event polling.
SDN Gateway Integration Configuration Page
The SDN Gateway Integration page lets you configure CA Virtual Network Assurance to view both virtual network data and traditional physical infrastructure data. The CA VNA collects data from all your SDN environments and delivers that information to
DX NetOps Spectrum
.
DX NetOps Spectrum
and CA VNA integration lets you access SDN inventory via a single point of integration. The integration uses VNA Client API (uses webSocket) to connect to VNA and UDM (Unified Data Model) to access the data.
The SDN Gateway data source contributes the following item types to
DX NetOps Spectrum
:
  • Topology
  • SFC View
  • Inventory updates (includes SDN entities and their status information)
For more information about SDN, see the CA Virtual Network Assurance documentation.
Service Desk Configuration Page
You can view, configure, test, and save
DX NetOps Spectrum
and supported Service Desk application integration settings using the Service Desk Configuration administration page.
Before configuring OneClick to connect to CA Service Desk Manager and ServiceNow, download and install the integration components on your Service Desk/ MDR server.
You can create and modify CA Service Desk Manager server and admin user parameters, enable and disable the
DX NetOps Spectrum
and CA Service Desk Manager integration, and add and remove
DX NetOps Spectrum
alarms that generate CA Service Desk tickets. For more information on integrating
DX NetOps Spectrum
with supported Service Management applications including CA Service Desk Manager, see How to Install and Configure the Integration.

The GIS (Geographical Information System) View displays device models geographically on the Google maps. You can view the model name and model handle details of a device when mouse over on that device in this view. When you click the device in this view, it displays the device details in OneClick. The condition of the device model is also highlighted. For example, a device model with the critical condition is displayed in red color. By default, the map focuses on the USA.
The GIS View feature does not work if you integrate
DX NetOps Spectrum
with CA SiteMinder SSO.
You can configure the default location by entering your favorite location in gisGC.config file. The source of input for GIS View is Global Collection (GC) or list of IP addresses. The default primary source is GC. You can configure the default source to IP address list by modifying the 'UseGisGCconfig=no' in gisGC.config file.
Enter the IP addresses for which you want
DX NetOps Spectrum
to display GIS view in the following files:
For GC:
$SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/spectrum/console/gisGC.config
We recommend using a unique name for GC
For IP addresses list:
$SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/spectrum/console/gisIPAddressList.config
  • The free version of Google's APIs allows you to view limited number of devices (as per Google API policy) in GIS View.
  • Google requires an API key, to enable the Google Maps usage embedded in Websites. You must request for the API key from Google APIs page, and then update the following file with new API key. (applies for both free and enterprise use)
    $SPECROOT\tomcat\webapps\spectrum\console\googleAPIKEY.config
    UseLicense=Yes
    API_KEY=<new_api_key>
    Replace the "<new_api_key>" with the API key obtained from Google APIs. Save and close the file.
  • We recommend to configure hundred or less devices for GIS View.
