Figure 1-2: 9135 Host Table

Enterprise Version

CanogaView Smart Element Manager

In addition, the CanogaView Smart Element Managers SNMP Agent Chooser application
must be used to add each managed SNMP Agent to its database. CanogaView Smart
Element Manager must know the IP Address and Agent Type of the SNMP Agent so that
the correct management applications are used to access and retrieve data from the
managed device using the SNMP protocol and device relevant MIB variables.

Chapter 2
Installing CanogaView Smart Element Manager
All files necessary for the installation of the CanogaView Smart Element Manager software
are contained on the installation CD. Additionally, this manual as well as other technical
information is also contained on the CD and installed with the software.

2.1

Installation Process

The following steps assume that the CanogaView Smart Element Manager software is being
installed via the installation CD. If the software has been downloaded from Canoga Perkins
corporate web site, then locate the install.htm file at the top of the downloaded directory
tree and select/execute it.
If you install CanogaView onto a computer running Network Node Manager (NNM) and you
select the option to integrate with NNM, the NNM services must be running. Additionally, if
the NNM user interface is running, ensure that the Event Configuration application is not
displayed. You will be reminded of this during the installation.
Note: The actual install process will vary slightly depending upon the hardware
platform, operating system software and the response to installer prompts. Not all of
the installer steps described appear during installation. The installation screen
examples shown in this manual are from a Windows NT installation with HP
OpenView NNM also installed.

2.2

Installation Steps

2.2.1 Insert CD
Windows Platforms
Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive.
If the installer web page did not automatically display when the CD was inserted into
the CD-ROM drive, locate the file install.htm and double click on it or open it with
your browser (File >> Open or File >> Open Page). Read the installation
instructions and then proceed to the next step.
The next step in the installation process is basically to locate and execute the
installation procedure which is on the CD. This can be done by selecting (clicking) on
this install link, or by locating the InstData/Windows/Vm directory on the CD ROM
and executing the file install.exe.
Next proceed to section 2.2.2.

Solaris Platform

Enterprise Version

CanogaView Smart Element Manager

Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive.


Mount the CD via the command:
cd /cdrom/cdrom0
If this command fails, wait a few moments and try again (it may take a short time for
the CD-ROM to be detected).
Locate the file install.htm and open it with your browser (File >> Open Page). A
browser page will open with the CanogaView Smart Element Manager image
displayed. Read the installation instructions and proceed to the next step.
The next in the installation process is basically to locate and execute the installation
procedure which is on the CD. Locate the InstData/Solaris/Vm directory on the CD
ROM and executing the file install.bin.
Next proceed to section 2.2.2.

HP-UX Platform
Installation on HP-UX requires that the Portable File System (PFS) processes
pfs_mountd and pfsd be running. Determine if they are running by executing the
command:
ps -e | grep pfs
If this command returns no output, start the PFS processes via these commands:
nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd &
Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive. If the directory /cdrom does not exist on your
workstation, create it now:
mkdir /cdrom
Mount the CD via the command:
/usr/sbin/pfs_mount -t rrip /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0 /cdrom
Substitute the device name of your CD-ROM drive for /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0 if necessary
(command ioscan -fnC disk will display your CD-ROM device name).
Make sure that Netscape Navigator recognizes the .bin file extension as a binary
executable file.
Display the Navigator Preferences window (Edit >> Preferences). Open the
preferences for category Navigator >> Applications, and find the Binary Executable
list item. Select this item and click Edit. If bin is not listed in the Suffixes field,
Enterprise Version

CanogaView Smart Element Manager

append it to the current value of Suffixes and save the change (use a comma to

Post Installation Steps

2.3.1 HP OpenView URL Setup for SNMP Agents


This step is required for installations with HP OpenView NNM Integration only.
Unix Specific Instructions (HP-UX and Sun)
Unix versions of NNM do not support the setting of the management URLs during an
installation procedures as done for the Windows version. Therefore the Setting
Management URLs Manually section (follows the next section) must be followed.
The set the management URL must be specified to be able to access a SNMP
Agents View from the NNM web interface.
Windows Specific Instructions
When integrating with HPs Windows version of NNM, CanogaView Smart Element
Manager configures NNM to set the Management URL attribute for the Canoga
Perkins SNMP managed devices; DMM for 2U and 5U chassis based products,
9135 related devices and any of the managed devices residing in a standalone
Enterprise Version

22

CanogaView Smart Element Manager

device (eg. 1020, 1040, etc.). If for any reason this setting is unsuccessful, the
manual setting of such is required. The setting of the management URL must be
specified to be able to access an SNMP Agents View from the NNM web interface.
If a SNMP Agent's Management URL attribute does not get set properly, try
adjusting the NNM configuration change polling interval. This interval is accessed
via the NNM dialog: Options->Network Polling Configuration:IP/IPX
Make sure "Perform configuration checks" is checked. The value for "Configuration
polling interval" is the maximum length of time it should take for NNM to set the
Management URL for SNMP Agent(s) after installing CanogaView Smart Element
Manager. Since the default interval is one day, you may want to adjust this to a
shorter interval, at least temporarily. Note that these two parameters are also used
by the NNM netmon process.
If the Management URL still does not get set properly, it may be configured manually
as documented below.
Setting Management URLs Manually

2. Replace "nms_server_host" with the hostname or IP address of the server on which you
installed the CanogaView Smart Element Manager software.
3. Replace "agent_ip_addr" with the SNMP Agent's IP address.

2.3.2 Netscape Navigator Environment Variable (Unix only)


This step is required for UNIX installations only.
Starting with Netscape Navigator 4.0, it is strongly recommended that environment variable
MOZILLA_HOME be exported and set to point to the Netscape installation directory. This
can be accomplished with the Bourne and Korn shells, for example, with the commands:
export MOZILLA_HOME

Enterprise Version

23

CanogaView Smart Element Manager

MOZILLA_HOME=/path/to/Netscape/install/directory
It is recommended that these commands be added to a file that is sourced automatically
when the machine is booted or the user logs in (e.g. /.dtprofile for Common Desktop
Environment (CDE)).

2.3.3 Delete Directories if Desired (Unix only)


This step is for UNIX installations only.
The IA_Installers and its contents are not needed after the installation completes; they may
be safely deleted if desired.
CanogaView Smart Element Manager installers create a directory named IA_Installers in the
root directory (/) when run. This directory holds expanded installer files that are used during
the course of the installation.
If you experience problems installing which appear to be due to a lack ofspace in the root
filesystem, work around the problem using a symbolic link.First delete the /IA_Installers
directory, if present. Create a directoryin a filesystem with sufficient disk space, then create
a symbolic linkin the root directory named "IA_Installers" to point to the new directory (e.g.
"ln -s /some/new/dir /IA_Installers") and then attempt to reinstall CanogaView Smart
Element Manager.

3.1.1 Application Overview


The CanogaView Smart Element Manager basically consists of client and server side
services. The client side components consist of HTML web pages, Java scripts and Java
applets that execute within a web browser that supports Java (typically Internet Explorer or
Netscape). These web pages and applets communicate and are managed by CanogaView
Smart Element Managers web server. The server side components are the web server,
Java server pages (jsp), HTML pages, Java scripts, Java servlets, database and SNMP
communication stack.
The following table lists the client side services and the basic application hierarchy (who
calls who as indicated using colors and indentations). It is assumed that the user is starting
from the main start up page which is displayed here:

Next, the CanogaView Smart Element Manager Login screen opens and the user will be
prompted to enter a username and a password.

Figure 3-9. Login Screen

3.2.3 Login
The standard login screen, shown above, will appear the first time access to any
CanogaView Smart Element Manager application (e.g. Agent Chooser, Domain View, 9135
View, Alarm Monitor, etc.) is attempted. After a successful login, any application may then
be accessed without having to enter a username and password. The login session
continues until the user explicitly logs out or the session times out due to inactivity.
If the password for CanogaView has not been established, enter "guest" or "admin" as the
username and password. This entry is case sensitive. After a successful login, the Agent
Chooser screen will open.
The Account Manager Utility application is used for username and password management.
See section 3.3.1 for more information on how to use the Account Manager application.

3.2.4 Agent Chooser


The CanogaView Smart Element Managers SNMP Agent Chooser application (see Figure
3-10) must be used to add each managed SNMP Agent to its database. CanogaView Smart
Element Manager must know the IP Address and Agent Type of the SNMP Agent so that
the correct management applications are used to access and retrieve data from the
managed device using the SNMP protocol and device specific MIB variables.
Additionally, it is essential that the IP address of the server on which the CanogaView Smart
Element Manager Enterprise software is installed must be added to the SNMP Agents host
table for each device that is to be managed. Additionally, if trap/alarm monitoring is desired,
then the appropriate access level and trap port must be setup. See Figures: 1-1 and 1-2
in this manual for examples of the DMM and 9135s telnet user interface.
The SNMP Agents currently supported are:
Enterprise Version

35

CanogaView Smart Element Manager

Domain Management Module (DMM) for management support of the Universal


Chassis System (up to eight 2U and 5U chassis per DMM) and its components.
9135 Two Port EdgeAccess Switch
9140 Four Port EdgeAccess Switch
9135G Gigabit Two-port EdgeAccess Switch

Click on the "Add Agent" button and an Add Agent window will open. Enter the IP Address
of the SNMP Agent to be managed and the Agent Type. Repeat adding SNMP Agents for
each device that you need to manage.
To delete an agent, select the agent to delete from the list, click on the Delete Agent
button, and save the change.
Additions, changes and/or deletions to the Agent database must be saved.

SNMP Agent in order for set operations to work. Default is public.

Enterprise Version

37

CanogaView Smart Element Manager

The Status column (example below) reports the status of each SNMP Agent being monitored. The
Status values of Alive, No Response and Unknown are determined by continuously polling (5 - 120
seconds, default 20) the installed agents using simple SNMP Get requests. This feature helps to
determine the proper setup of the user's IP Network by testing if an SNMP packet is able to reach as
well as be returned from a SNMP Agent. Status values should be interpreted as follows:
Alive - SNMP Agent is online and responding correctly to SNMP queries.
No Response - SNMP Agent is offline most likely to one of the following reasons: Unit is
powered off, incorrect IP address, network latency or timeouts, IP Network router/fire wall
problems, incorrect community name, IP address of CanogaView server not entered into DMM's
Host table.
Unknown - the application has not yet attempted to query the device. This should only be a
temporary condition.

Examples of the various view types follow. The 9135, 9140 and 9135G are very similar,
therefore only one is shown in this section.
Domain View
Once a specific domain is selected the chassis (both 5u and 2u chassis models) within that
domain will be presented on the page. A domain may contain from one (1) to eight (8)
chassis.
Due to performance and graphical imaging issues the chassis, when displayed at the
Domain View level, are not exact representations of the devices installed. Generic models
are displayed within each slot based upon the card type identified by the SNMP Agent and
LEDs are not displayed due to their size at this level.

Other Applications

3.3.1 Account Manager


To manage login accounts (e.g., add/delete users, set up passwords, etc.) open the Account
Manager utility. On a Windows platform, this page can be accessed from the Account
Manager shortcut installed during CanogaView installation (see Figure 3-6. Shortcut
Menu) or the Utilities option from the CanogaView Start page (see Figure 3-8:
CanogaView Start Page).
On a UNIX platform or remote windows platform, open the URL for the Account Manager as
documented in Section 3.2.1 and 3.2.2.
http://canogaview_server_host:8080/nms/jsp/UsersConfig.jsp

Two user login accounts are automatically created when CanogaView is installed:

guest - this is used for both user name and password. This login account has been preinstalled with the observer access level.

admin - this is used for both user name and password. This login account has been preinstalled with the Supervisor access level.

Note: Taking into consideration security issues, it is advisable to either remove or change
the pre-installed access accounts.
Use the admin account when establishing new users. To establish new users click the "Add
User" button. Fill in the desired user name and password, then select a user security level
via the drop-down menu. This setting defines the level of access the user will have upon
login. This setting is important and will limit the security level placed upon users for specific
applications and fields.
Note: Accounts and passwords are case sensitive.
After 3 unsuccessful attempts an account will be set to an Enabled State of locked out
as it will no longer be a valid account until the Enabled State is reset to enabled by a
user with administrative privileges.

3.3.2 Alarm Monitor


Each graphical views have a button with a yellow bell; the Alarm Monitor. The Alarm Monitor
registers to receive events that originate from the chassis, device, etc.
When initiated, the Alarm Monitor screen will open with a history of the latest alarms. This
monitor operates in real time, thus as one alarm is generated it is reflected in the alarms list
while the last alarm in the history file is removed when the maximum number of alarms is
received.
An alarm database stores Historical Alarm Events for monitoring and reporting purposes. By
default, the system is installed with a utility which runs every night at midnight which purges
all alarms older than 30 days to a txt file. The purpose of this utility is to prevent the
database from becoming too big as the performance of the reporting applications will be
impacted significantly.
To modify the execution of this utility, find the "service.conf" file within the directory hierarchy
where you installed CanogaView Smart Element Manager, and using a standard text editor
modify the line which starts with "EventEngine". You will see two variables toward the end of
the line (see below) that you can modify to turn this feature "-exportalarms on" or "exportalarms off", the number of days of which events are considered old "-exportage 30"
and the output location where the exported events should be placed "-exportdir xxxx":
EventEngine ................... -exportalarms on -exportage 30 -exportdir xxx
xxx is the name of the directory where exported event files will be placed. Note that the txt
format of these files created allow them to be imported into other desktop applications. Also,
each time the purge utility is run a new file with a new date/time stamp as its filename is
created which allows one to merge and search through months or years of alarm
information.
The Alarm Monitor displays Active alarms and Historical alarms. The Active list will show
only those received events that have not yet been cleared (thereby showing the current
state of the device(s) monitored). The historical list will show all events that have been
received and subsequently cleared. Both lists can be resized.
Alarm Event Correlation services are present such that Link Up events clear Link Down
events, Cold Starts clear all events against a device, Card Inserted events clear Card
Removed events, Active Optical Link Sync OK clear Active Optical Link Sync Bad events,
etc..
Alarm Filtering exists such that whenever a user selects the Alarm Monitor option; all
Alarms displayed and subsequently monitored will be that at the device level selected as
well as all of its components or underlying views. Thus the Alarm Monitor is opened at the

3.3.6 Security Manager


Collectively the security features within CanogaView Login, Application Level Security (Administrator, Operator, Observer), SNMP Community Names, DMM (SNMP Proxy)
Trusted Hosts and Server OS Login/Password support provide for a robust secured product.
To manage application security, open the Security Manager. On a Windows platform, this
page can be accessed from the Security Manager shortcut installed during the CanogaView
installation (see Figure 3-6. Shortcut Menu) or the Utilities option from the CanogaView
Start page (see Figure 3-8: CanogaView Start Page).
On a UNIX platform or remote windows platform, open the URL for the Security Manager as
documented in Section 3.2.1 and 3.2.2.
http://canogaview_server_host:8080/nms/jsp/AppsConfig.jsp

Each application can have a minimum access level assigned which is required to open the
application (e.g., if UsersConfig application is assigned a Supervisor level access, users
without this security level will be denied access when attempting to configure the Users
data.)
Individual fields within the application can also be assigned access levels; "full access,"
"limited access" and "none."

Full Access - allows read/write privileges for users with the minimum access level (i.e.,
observer, operator, supervisor)

Limited Access - allows read only privileges for users with the minimum access level
(i.e., observer, operator, supervisor)

None - does not allow the field to be displayed or interacted with any user.

3.3.7 Status
Although the status of a device is implied at many levels through the use of color, alarms,
graphical displays, etc., device specific status applications will display mib fields that show
all relevant information about a device. Additional information such as version information
will also be displayed so that the user does not have to bounce around between status and
configurations applications in order to gather the information that is generally required in
order to diagnose a problem. The information displayed will closely match that which is
displayed via the telnet interface.
Polling the status related snmp mib variables for a device is the method used to update the
contents of the status applications. Options are provided to allow the user to control the
polling intervals. The default will be 10 seconds, and the range will be from 5 to 120
seconds. Status examples follow:

3.3.8 Telnet
Telnet is the supported craft interface for login and terminal emulation supported by the
DMM as well as the other CP Devices in the network. CanogaView, in an effort to make the
system more user friendly provides Telnet application selection points so that he user does
not have to manual invoke the application and/or type in the IP address each time.

3.3.9 TFTP Server


The TFTP Server Utility monitors the TFTP file transfer activities on the CanogaView Smart
Element Manager Server. TFTP "Trivial File Transfer Protocol" is used to transfer files
(firmware) from the CanogaView Smart Element Manager Server to the SNMP Agent (DMM)
for subsequent downloading to one or more targeted Canoga Perkins's products. The SNMP
Agent requests the files from the TFTP Server process; therefore once the TFTP Server is
started it sits idle waiting for file transfer requests.
The TFTP Server process can only be started from and executed on the CanogaView Smart
Element Manager Web Server. You may manually start the TFTP Server Utility so that it
only runs when needed during firmware upgrades or automate the startup runs whenever
the CanogaView Smart Element Manager Server is running by using the shortcut installed
during CanogaView installation (see Figure 3-6. Shortcut Menu) or the Utilities option from
the CanogaView Start page (see Figure 3-8: CanogaView Start Page).
To automate the startup of the TFTP Server, add the "TFTP Server" shortcut within the
"CanogaView Smart Element Manager" programs folder to the "Startup" group.
TFTP Server help is available online.

"guest" and "admin" respectively. The "guest" user is assigned "observer" access and the
"admin" user is assigned "supervisor" access.
It is suggested that the Administrator change these passwords to prevent unauthorized
access.
For security reasons, this version of CanogaView Smart Element Manager will
administratively "lock out" any user account after the third consecutive unsuccessful login
attempt. The locked out account may be re-enabled via the Account Manager applet. In the
case that the Administrator himself has been locked out, contact CanogaView Smart
Element Manager Technical Support for a resolution.

4.10 Why doesn't CanogaView Smart Element Manager support


Netscape 6.0?
Netscape 6 does not support LiveConnect which CanogaView Smart Element Manager
uses to communicate between its applets and the web browser pages. This restricts
CanogaView Smart Element Manager from opening a new browser window from within its
applets, ability to handle the items such as "Close Other Windows" or bringing an existing
window to the foreground. Until Netscape 6 supports this feature, which Netscape 4.X
supports, CanogaView Smart Element Manager will not be able to support Netscape 6.
This
is
from
the
Netscape
6
release
notes
at
http://home.netscape.com/eng/mozilla/ns6/relnotes/6.0.html#new : LiveConnect is not yet
enabled in this release. LiveConnect and LiveConnect security will be enabled in a later

Chapter 5 Troubleshooting
The following is a list of typical troubleshooting techniques that can be used to determine
and correct a problem.

5.1

No Response from SNMP Agent

If the applications are showing the error "No Response from SNMP Agent", verify the
following:
1. That the CanogaView Smart Element Manager Web Server's address is
entered into the SNMP Agent's (DMM's or 9135/40, etc.) host table. The
SNMP agents will only respond to those IP addresses listed in its host table.
2. That the Agent's Default Gateway field is set correctly. A correct Default
Gateway is required in a routed environment to ensure that IP connectivity is
possible from the SNMP Agent to the CanogaView Smart Element Manager
Web Server.
3. That you can Ping the SNMP Agent from the CanogaView Smart Element
Manager Web Server and vice versa.
4. That you can Telnet to the SNMP Agent from the CanogaView Smart
Element Manager Web Server.
5. From the CanogaView Smart Element Manager Web Server, try running
running traceroute to trace the route from the CanogaView Smart Element
Manager Web Server to the SNMP Agent. Failures can indicate a problem
with a router setup or the Default Gateway setting on the Agent.
6. Verify the correct SNMP Community names are being used within the Agent
Chooser and match those in the SNMP Agent's System Configuration
parameters.
7. If you have access to a SNMP Mib Browser software, see if you can access
the SNMP Agent.
8. If you have access to a protocol analyzer, monitor the connection to see if
any SNMP traffic is present for these IP addresses.
9. Try resetting the SNMP Agent.
10. Contact Technical Support.

5.2

"Model Not Found" image appears on my View

This image appears when CanogaView Smart Element Manager is unable to find a match
between the model number reported by the device to an image file located at the
CanogaView Smart Element Manager server. Verify the model number reported by the
device by telneting to the device or placing the cursor over the image from which the tooltip
will display the model number.

Enterprise Version

CanogaView Smart Element Manager

Contact technical support with this information for a resolution.

5.3

Traps/Alarm Processing

If you are experiencing problems receiving alarms in the Alarm Monitor, there are several
things you can do to troubleshoot the problem:
1. Make sure that the IP address of the CanogaView Smart Element Manager server
computer is listed in the Host Table of the SNMP Agent from which alarms are expected,
and that the Access Level for this IP address is "4" (Read/Write/Trap).
Example DMM instructions: To do this, start a Telnet session to the DMM. On the
MAIN MENU, select "1" to access the Domain Management Module. On the DOMAIN
MANAGEMENT MODULE screen, select "6" to view the Host Table. Add or edit an IP
address entry for the CanogaView Smart Element Manager server as needed.
2. Verify that you have IP connectivity from the SNMP Agent to the CanogaView Smart
Element Manager server by pinging the server from the device.
Example DMM instructions: Start a Telnet session to the DMM. On the MAIN MENU,
select "1" to access the Domain Management Module. On the DOMAIN
MANAGEMENT MODULE screen, select "3", Ping Generation. On the PING MENU
screen, enter the IP address of the CanogaView Smart Element Manager server
computer and a number of ping attempts to make. Hit Enter to start the test.
If ping requests are sent but not received, it indicates a lack of IP connectivity from the
SNMP Agent to the server. In this case, it is not possible for CanogaView Smart
Element Manager to receive SNMP traps from the SNMP Agent. Contact your system
or network administrator for help with troubleshooting a network problem.
3. Verify that the CanogaView Smart Element Manager services needed for trap
processing are running, and stop/restart them if necessary.
Windows NT/2000
Open the Services application (Start->Settings->Control Panel: Services) and look for
the "CanogaView Smart Element Manager" service. The status of this service should be
"Started"; if it is not, select the "CanogaView Smart Element Manager" list item and
click the Start button.
If after troubleshooting alarms are still not being received, you can try to stop and restart
the services by selecting the "CanogaView Smart Element Manager" service list item,
clicking on "Stop", then "Start".
4. Determine if SNMP traps sent by the SNMP Agent are arriving at the CanogaView Smart
Element Manager server computer by looking at syslog messages.
On Windows NT/2000, execute the following program to display syslog messages:
nms-install-directory\syslogd\2.2\syslogd-2.2\application\SyslogD.exe

Enterprise Version

72

CanogaView Smart Element Manager

For each trap received, you should see messages from "TRAPSERVICE" and
"EVENTENGINE".
5. Make sure that the CanogaView Smart Element Manager Trap Service is listening for
SNMP traps on the correct port.
The Trap Service listens for SNMP traps on the port number specified during the
installation; this should be port 163 for computers that have HP's Network Node
Manager or other network management packages installed, and port 162 otherwise. If
configured incorrectly, Trap Service will either fail to start or will not process any traps.
You can verify the configured port number by opening the service.conf file in your
CanogaView Smart Element Manager installation directory with a text editor. The
number following the string "-trapport" is the port number. If this number is incorrect,
change it, save the change, and stop/restart the CanogaView Smart Element Manager
services as documented above.
