I am running Server Automation 7.84 and am getting a message when I login saying cannot connect to Network Automation. The original installers of the system said it was easy to configure but they all left with no information on how. I am running NA 7.50.02, can anyone point me in the direction of a document or process that will get the two integrated.
You can find detailed procedure to integrate SA with NA in SA 7.80 Planning and Installation Guide, page 120.
The message "cannot connect to Network Automation" means there is communication problem between SA and NA.
The required port between SA and NA are following:
• Port 1032 (NA to SA) NA must be able to access port 1032 on the server that is running the SA Web Services Data Access Engine component (part of the Component Slice bundle). By default, the Web Services Data Access Engine listens on port 1032.
• Port 8022 (Unix) / Port 22 (Windows) (SA to NA) For the Global File System (OGFS) feature to be able to display data about network devices, SA must have access to port 8022 (Unix-based NA Servers) and 22 (Windows-based NA Servers).
• RMI/JRMP Ports for NA API The NA API uses Java RMI to connect to the NA server. SA uses the NA API for the NA integration. RMI/JRMP requires that the following ports are open: - Port 1099 JNDI - Port 4444 RMI Object
- Port 8083 RMI - Dynamic RMI
And if you do NOT need integration with NA anymore, then remove configuration parameter from /etc/opt/opsware/twist/twist.conf in SA core server.
