Issue/Introduction

We use the Modeling Gateway to discover devices and create links between devices.  However, when we try to use it, in a Secure Domain, it fails.

The Modeling Gateway shows the following errors:

Sending action to identify 2 devices 

No models found by GET_DEV_MODELS_PER_IP action for x.x.x.x 

Device x.x.x.x in connection was not added to creation list. 

No models found by GET_DEV_MODELS_PER_IP action for y.y.y.y 

Device y.y.y.y in connection was not added to creation list. 

Cause

 

 

Environment

CA Spectrum, Modeling Gateway used with a Secure Domain Manager.

Resolution

As this is a Secure Domain, we need to add the "secdomain_ipname" parameter to tell Modeling Gateway to use SDM to discovery and model the device. Example:

(Device ip_dnsname="x.x.x.x" secdomain_ipname="y.y.y.y"

 

Example: we would change the import from:

 

<Import>

<Topology complete_topology="false">

<Connection create_pipe="true">

<Device ip_dnsname="x.x.x.x">

<Port identifier_name="portID" identifier_value="401"/>

</Device>

<Device ip_dnsname="z.z.z.z.">

<Port identifier_name="portID"  identifier_value="24"/>

</Device>

</Connection>

</Topology>

</Import>

 

to:

<Import>

<Topology complete_topology="false">

<Connection create_pipe="true">

<Device ip_dnsname="x.x.x.x" secdomain_ipname="y.y.y.y">

<Port identifier_name="portID" identifier_value="401"/>

</Device>

<Device ip_dnsname="z.z.z.z" secdomain_ipname="y.y.y.y">

<Port identifier_name="portID" identifier_value="24"/>

</Device>

</Connection>

</Topology>

</Import>
