Release notes for PERC2 HP Openview Support.


Functionality Provided.


A FAST icon is placed in the submap for each node that meets the 
following requirements: the node has a PERC2 Adapter installed and
FAST SNMP support has been enabled through the FAST control panel
applet.  This icon can be used to launch the PERC2 
management application (FAST) by double clicking on the icon, 
using the popup menu accessible from the icon, or by using the 
tools menu while the PERC2 controller is selected.

If the software fails to detect a PERC2 controller known to be in a
machine,  the user can force the software to re-query the selected 
node for PERC2 controllers.  
Select Tools->Adaptec Array Controller->Check Node For PERC2.

Significant events are placed in the HP Openview event log 
(xnmevents).


Installation instructions.

In general, installing the Dell Special Edition of HP Openview will 
completly install the PERC2 support for HP Openview.  These
instructions are provided for users who may wish to install
PERC2 support for HP Openview independent of the Dell
Special Edition of HP OpenView.

The PERC2 management software does not support automated
 installation of the HP Openview support files.  
The following instructions refer to the PERC2 system directory.  
This directory will be located wherever the PERC2 management 
software was installed.

1.) Copy aacovdis.exe and aacovmap.exe from the 
    PERC2 system\hp_openview directory to the Openview bin 
    directory.  Example:
	
copy "c:\program files\perc2\system\hp_openview\aacovmap.exe" c:\openview\bin
copy "c:\program files\perc2\system\hp_openview\aacovdis.exe" c:\openview\bin

2.) Copy the PERC2 application registration file (aac.arf) from the 
    PERC2 system\hp_openview directory to the Openview registration 
    directory.  Example:

copy "c:\program files\PERC2\system\hp_openview\aac.arf" c:\openview\registration\c

3.) Copy the PERC2 trap definition file (aac.conf) from the 
    PERC2 system\hp_openview directory to the Openview configuration
    directory.  Example:
	
copy "c:\program files\PERC2\system\hp_openview\aac.conf" c:\openview\conf\c

4.) Run xnmevents -load to update the HP Openview trap definition
    file.  Example:

cd c:\openview\conf\c
xnmevents -load aac.conf

5.) Copy the PERC2 field registration (aac.frf) from the  
    PERC2 system\hp_openview directory to the Openview fields 
    directory.  Example:
	
copy "c:\program files\PERC2\system\hp_openview\aac.frf" c:\openview\fields\c

6.) Run "ovw -fields" to update the OpenView database.  Example:

ovw -fields

7.) Copy the FAST icon file (aac.ico) from the 
    PERC2 system\hp_openview directory to the Openview bitmaps 
    directory.  Example:

copy "c:\program files\PERC2\system\hp_openview\aac.ico" c:\openview\bitmaps\c

8.) Copy the PERC2 symbol registration file (aac.srf) to the 
    Openview symbol directory.  The PERC2 symbol registration file 
    must be placed in the "Cards" subdirectory.  Example:

copy "c:\program files\PERC2\system\hp_openview\aac.srf" c:\openview\symbols\c\cards

9.) Copy the PERC2 local registration file (aac.lrf) to the 
    Openview lrf directory.  Example:

copy "c:\program files\PERC2\system\hp_openview\aac.lrf" c:\openview\lrf

10.) Register the aacovdis executable with the OpenView process 
     manager.  Example.

ovaddobj aac.lrf

11.) Start the aacovdis process.

ovstart aacovdis.

12.) Restart HP Openview NNM.  At this point, icons should 
appear for PERC2 adapters that are present in the submap of the 
nodes in which the adapter resides.
