Install Description

HP OpenView Setup:
As a prerequisite the customer needs to install the HP OpenView client software which includes the opcmsg utility on the dynaTrace Diagnostic Server. The opcmsg command is used to post an event to the HP OpenView event server. In order for the plugin to find the opcmsg command, the HP OpenView home directory must be specified in the plugin properties. The plugin will append bin/OpC to the home directory to execute the opcmsg command.  For example, if the HP OpenView Home is specified as c:\HPOpenView, the plugin will attempt to execute c:\HPOpenView\bin\OpC\opcmsg.

dynaTrace Setup:
Once the HP OpenView install is complete you will need to enable the dynaTrace HP OpenView plugin and configure it using the property tag. To enable the dynaTrace HP OpenView plugin (which is disabled by default), you will need to go to Diagnostic Server Preferences and select Plugins. To get to the Diagnostic Server Preferences highlight the Live session and right mouse then choose Preferences from menu.

To install the v1.0 Plugin you need to create a directory called HPOpenViewNotificationPlugin10 under C:\Program Files\dynaTrace Diagnostics 2.5\conf\plugins\ and add the HPOpenViewPlugin10.jar file to the directory.

Note that the plugin will write error and informational messages to the dynaTrace Diagnostic Server log. You should see the exact message contents the plugin writes to the command line labeled as "Plug-In Calls:".

    How are we addressing this issue in 4.++ version of DT?

    There was a suggestion to try and use the Generic plugin to execute at the command line.

    Is that still the only option?

      I dont know of any updated plugin version. The latest suggestion - as you can see from previous comments - is to use the generic execution plugin
