OVSD 5.0 & NNM 7.5 on same server ?

Hi all, (its been a long time)

I'm installing SD 5.0 on a server that is already running NNM 7.5

NNM 7.5 has a web based front end based on Apache and Tomcat.

The installation of SD 5.0 Server is going to install Apache & Tomcat too.

Now, as Apache and Tomcat aren't HP code, does anyone know whether there is likely to be an impact on NNM if I install SD 5.0 ?

I know that when it comes to installing SD 5.0 ServicePages I'll need to stop Apache / Tomcat or the install hangs, but I'm more concerned about whether the install is going to overwrite any Apache files used by NNM.

I know its early days, but has anyone, anywhere, tried this yet ?

Regards,

Dave Collier.

Hi Dave,

I don't know about the NNM files but I can give you a list of all tomcat/apache files installed with SD 5.0 if you want.

Hi Mark,

That would be a great start. I guess I'm going to be doing some interesting stuff here.

For reference, I did actually install it before I got the answer and the result was a heart skipping moment where NNM Homebase refused to work with a JVM_Bind address in use message and ovas refused to start. A swift reboot seemed to fix it, although i'm not totally convinced all is totally perfect with my install.

But yes, a list of the files installed would be very useful. Thanks.

Hi Dave,

Hi all,

It looks like I've fallen into the trap of being a bit suspicious of any new software !!!

THe SD 5.0 install detects whether Tomcat is installed and up and running and which port its using. If it's using a port that SD would normally use it simply picks another one. I seem to recall that when I did the install I saw the port number on screen.

Anyway, SD 5.0 is looking pretty impressive, ServicePages is working fine now and the "map" views are simply sent from heaven.

Cheers,
