Issue/Introduction

 

 

 



When trying to use the function in the CCA UI to import servers, the user is prompted to select a csv file.

A sample file is provided in the /Program Files/CA/CCA Server/samples/servers.csv file.

 

The file has the example :

#command,server_name,ip_address,mac_address,server_state,access_profile,management_profile,server_group_names
add,abc.ca.com,127.0.0.1,1.0.0.0,1,Port Probe,,
add,abc1.ca.com,127.0.0.2,2.0.0.0,1,Manual Agent,Discover and Manage CA Software,Server Group1;Server Group2,Windows 2003,

 

Following this format will return an error in the CCA UI where CCA is unable to determine the correct IP Address.

Hosts failed

[1] x (abc.ca.com) : CCA-PL-3577: Invalid IP Address found : abc.ca.com

 

Environment

Release: ACMPHY99000-12.8-Configuration Automation-for Physical Environments

Resolution

This file format is no longer valid for the current CCA 12.8.x version for importing servers.

The correct format to import servers no longer requires the first column "add" in each line.

 

i.e.


abc.ca.com,127.0.0.1,1.0.0.0,1,Port Probe,,

abc1.ca.com,127.0.0.2,2.0.0.0,1,Manual Agent,Discover and Manage CA Software,Server Group1;Server Group2,Windows 2003,
