Issue/Introduction

We have a couple of VNA Cisco ACI set up in different geographical regions - how can another instance of the ACI Plugin be configured in VNA?  When adding another Cisco ACI plugin the Response code is 417 or 418


Plugin Configuration Validation for ACI Plugin failed:
DOMAIN_ID: must be greater than or equal to 1
DOMAIN_ID: 0 is not a defined domain

If I change the DOMAIN ID to 2, it still fails:


DOMAIN_ID: 2 is not a defined domain

Cause

The DOMAIN ID has not been created.

Environment

Release : 10.4.x

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER

Resolution

Create the Domain ID.

In the Inventory Section, open the:


POST /v1/inventory/userdomains/{domainName}          Create a user defined domain group


Enter a name in the "domainName" field and click the "Try it out!" button.

In the Response Body, there will be an "id":



Use this id number in the "DOMAIN_ID" field for the creation of the plugin.  For example:

{
"PLUGIN_CONFIG": {
     "APIC_HOST_IP": "192.168.254.212",
     "APIC_HOST_aaaUser_NAME": "api",
     "APIC_HOST_aaaUser_PASSWORD": "apiReadOn1y",
     "APIC_MAX_PAGE_SIZE": 15,
     "PROTOCOL": "https",
     "INVENTORY_POLL_RATE": "0 */10 *",
     "INVENTORY_DELTA_TIME": 600, 
     "PERFORMANCE_POLL_RATE": "0 */5 *",
     "PERFORMANCE_DELTA_TIME": 300,
     "AVAILABILITY_POLL_RATE": "0 */5 *",
     "AVAILABILITY_DELTA_TIME": 300,
     "FAULT_SUBSCRIPTION_ENABLED": true,
     "EVENT_SUBSCRIPTION_ENABLED": false,
     "HISTORICAL_EVENT_DAYS": 1,
     "DOMAIN_ID": 618
     }
}
