Note: HP renamed the product called now HP operations manager way too many times. Also it is very inconsistent with using abbreviations. Here we will assume that the term "HP Operations manager" and abbreviations HPOM, OMU, and HPOM  mean the same thing :-)

There are two interfaces to HPOM -- Admin GUI and operator GUI.

To access the Admin GUI for the first time open your browser and point it to the address where HP HPOM is installed.

For HTTP the default port is 9662 and for HTTPS it is 9663.

In your browser you should see the login screen. Enter your login name and password

Checking health of the server

Source  ov.envvars script located in HPOM's bin directory (normally /opt/OV/bin).

These scripts are named ov.envvars.csh, ov.envvars.sh, etc. (that is, ov.envvars followed by the name of the shell you're using). When you run the appropriate script for your shell, it defines environment variables such as $OV_BIN, $OV_MAN, and $OV_TMP, which point to the OpenView bin, man, and tmp directories, respectively.

Thus, you can easily go to the directory containing OpenView's manual pages with the command cd $OV_MAN. These environment variables are used  in all of OpenView's documentation.

Commands to Manage Policies:

ovpolicy (/optiOV/bin) Installs, manages, and removes policies on both local and remo{e nodes

Key options:

-list -view policies, policy version, and current status

-enable I -disable [-polname I -poltype]

opcpolicy (/opt/OV/bin/OpC/utils) Manage and maintain policies and policy groups

Deploy Policies/Templates from the Command Line

opcragt -distrib -templates -actions -monOMUrs hostname

Checking currently deployed templates/policies

You can look at the current templates/policies deployed to a remote node by using:

ovpolicy -l -host

Or from the localhost:

ovpolicy -l

There can be special  node groups that are not intended for use with responsibilities. These node groups are flagged as Invisible Node Groups and will not appear in any responsibility matrix. That can make responsibilities matrix more compact.

To get unassigned nodes to NG  in HPOM 
select nn.node_name from opc_nodes n, opc_node_names nn
     where nn.node_id = n.node_id
     and not exists (select 1 from opc_nodes_in_group nig where nig.node_id = nn.node_id);

=> this will execute an ls on the unix agent node coco and return the result

nodename.domain.com
