(SOM) Support Tip: Using utility 'bbcutil' to verify Certificate between SOM and OBR
Hello SOM Community,
if you haven't been ware, there is a utility called 'bbcutil' which might help to verify the Certificate being used for communication between Storage Operations Manager (SOM) and Operations Bridge Reporter (OBR). SOM and OBR are partially based on the Network Nodemanager (NNM) platform which includes the utility 'bbcutil'.
The 'bbcutil' can be found at the following location:
SOM on Windows: %OvInstallDir%\bin\win64 (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP BTO Software\bin\win64)
SOM on Linux: /opt/OV/bin/bbcutil
OBR on Linux: /opt/OV/bin/bbcutil
To verify if the Certificate is still valid you can run the command: bbcutil -ping <FQDN_OBR_SERVERNAME> e.g.
A valid Certificate will return something similar like: <FQDN_OBR_SERVERNAME>: status=eServiceOK coreID=31595054-e293-7586-167c-ba378d3e3881 bbcV=12.01.003 appN=ovbbccb appV=12.01.003 conn=2 time=399 ms
If the Certificate expired or is invalid you will get an error like: <FQDN_OBR_SERVERNAME>: (bbc-289) status=eSSLError time=451 ms
If the Certificate is broken, you might have to recreate it as described in the "Storage Resource Management Reports Guide" Chapter "Connecting the SOM Management Server and the SOM Reporting Server"
