DX NetOps CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration

Issue/Introduction

F5 with VIPs defined for DX NetOps Performance Management and CABI servers.

The Data Source for CABI is configured to the hostname of CABI.

We need help replacing the hostname with the VIP to allow us to see the CABI reports.

We can view the list of CABI reports but when we click one the URL contains the hostname of CABI and not the VIP address.

How can we adjust this setting so that the clients in front of the F5 using VIPs to contact CAPM and CABI will function?

Environment

All supported DX NetOps Performance Management releases

Resolution

Set the CABI Web Console to the external VIP Host Name to resolve this.

The URL constructed for the CABI report will use the CABI Data Source Host Name set.

To change that we'd want to do the following:

  1. Leave the Host Name set to the CABI Host Name as it currently is, set to the CABI Host Name.
  2. Uncheck the "Web Console: Same as Data Source" option
  3. In the Web Console section set the Host Name to the external VIP Host Name
  4. Save the changes

Once that's done, after the changes are synced between Performance Center and CABI, we should now see the Web Console Host Name value used for the CABI report URLs.
