CA Business Intelligence with CA UIM

The CA Business Intelligence (CABI) dashboards within CA UIM use CA Business Intelligence JasperReports Server (CABI Server). CABI Server provides rich reporting and integrates in-memory analysis capabilities. The following table lists the software packages for a specific cabi probe version and type. The monitoring technology dashboard packages and report packages are required only when you monitor the specific technology.

  • After you install UIM 20.3.0, for any CABI related issues, see the CABI troubleshooting page.
  • UIM 20.3.3 has removed dependency on CA Business Intelligence (CABI) for rendering the native OC screens: Home page, Group view page, Device view page, and Monitoring Technologies (probes) view page. Custom and Out-of-the-Box dashboards and reports are still rendered by using CABI; that is, they have a dependency on CABI. However, the native OC screens are no longer dependent on CABI (Jaspersoft) and are rendered by using HTML5. For more information about the native OC screens using HTML5, see the Configuring and Viewing Monitoring Data article or the "Removing CABI Dependency (Native Operator Console)" section in the UIM 20.3.3 article.
  • Two different cabi probe packages are available from version 3.20. Choose the cabi probe that is appropriate for your environment.
  • In an upgrade scenario, if you are upgrading CABI in a secure setup, ensure that you bring your CABI robot to the secure state by deploying the appropriate certificates and then updating the robot version to the secure version. After that, you upgrade CABI. For more information about the secure setup and how to deploy certificates, see Secure Hub and Robot.

The UIM Server installer creates a .pem file (certificate.pem) in the
<Nimsoft>\security
folder. The .pem file is a symmetric key that is shared with the required robots, which is then used for communication with the data_engine probe. You copy this .pem file to the remote OC and CABI robots and provide the location of the file in the robot.cfg file (
cryptkey = <.pem file location>
). Furthermore, if any impacted probe is not on the same computer where data_engine is present, copy the generated .pem file to the robot computer (where data_engine is not available) and update the robot.cfg file with the .pem file location on that computer. For more information about the robot.cfg file configuration, see Configure the robot.cfg File.
  1. The cabi 4.3 probe supports TLS 1.2 except if the Microsoft SQL Server 2012, 2014, 2016 database is installed on Windows Server 2016.
  2. The cabi 4.10 probe supports TLS v1.2 when communicating with the UIM databases: Microsoft SQL Server - 2012, 2014, 2016 and Oracle - 11.2 and 12.1. However, CABI is not supported if Microsoft SQL Server 2012, 2014, or 2016 is installed on Windows Server 2016 and TLS v1.2 is enabled. Note that UIM 20.1 (and later) do not support Oracle 11.2.
  3. The cabi 3.40 probe, available with UMP 9.0.2 HF2, supports TLS v1.2 when communicating with the UIM database: Microsoft SQL Server- 2012, 2014, and Oracle - 12.1. However, CABI is not supported if Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or 2014 is installed on Windows Server 2016 and TLS v1.2 is enabled. For more information about how to apply the UMP 9.0.2 HF2 for CABI TLS functionality, see UMP 9.0.2 HF2. Note that UIM 20.1 (and later) do not support Oracle 11.2
  4. The cabi 3.32 probe does not support TLS v1.2 when communicating with the UIM database: Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle. As a result, you cannot view the Operator Console home page, OOTB CABI dashboards, and OOTB CABI reports.
  5. TLS v1.2 support is not enabled by default when you install CA UIM 9.0.2.

The CABI probe version is dependent on the UIM version. Therefore, in some cases, upgrading CABI requires you to upgrade the UIM environment as well.
For example, if you are on UIM 9.0.2 with CABI 3.32 and want to upgrade to UIM 20.3.0 with CABI 4.30, you can follow this path:
  1. Upgrade UIM 9.0.2 to 20.3.0.
  2. Upgrade CABI 3.32 to 4.20 because you cannot directly upgrade from 3.3.2 to 4.30.
  3. Upgrade CABI 4.20 to 4.30.
