Updated On:


CA Automic Dollar Universe


Error Message :

Patch level detected:Dollar Universe Explorer 6.3.01
Product Version: Dollar.Universe 6.3.01

Description :The Dollar Universe Explorer does not support UVMS in failover architecture, so whenever the master UVMS failovers, Dollar Universe Explore stops collecting information from the UVMS.
Dollar Universe Explorer would stop communicating with the UVMS after doing a failover.


Cause type:
Root Cause: N/A


OS: All


After upgrading to Dollar Universe Explorer 6.6.21 or superior, you need to edit the values.xml like follows:

A new node setting named UVMS_LIST has been introduced in variables.xml.

By default, its value is empty.

You can define your own value in values.xml with zero or more items formatted like in the following:



Dollar Universe Explorer will try first to connect to the UVMS declared in variables UVMS_HOST, UVMS_PORT and UVMS_SSL_MODE. If connection fails, it will try to connect to the first UVMS of the list; if connection fails, it will try the next one in the list, and so on.

Once connection succeeds with a given UVMS, then we always use this UVMS for future connections. If connection fails at some point, then we try to connect to the other UVMS's, starting from the beginning of the list.

If Host is not filled in, the concerned list's item will be ignored.

This variable will be taken in account after stop and restart of the application.
This variable is case sensitive.
