Note: HP renamed the product called now HP operations manager way too many times. Also it is very inconsistent with using abbreviations. Here we will assume that the term "HP Operations manager" and abbreviations HPOM, OMU, and OVO  mean the same thing :-)

The command opcsv administers the services running on the Management Server of HP Operations.
In general, the HPOM manager services should be started before launching the HPOM agents on the Managed Nodes, and stopped afterwards. This command can only be issued by the superuser.  See HPOM Server processes for additional information about usage of this command

opcsv [ -help ] [ -start | -stop | -status | -trace ]


Displays usage message of opcsv. All other options are ignored.

Runs the scripts ‘ovc -stop OPC’ and ‘ovc -start OPC’. Starts or re-starts all HPOM services on the current system. Note that through the HP Operations registration mechanism all applications which HPOM requires to be running (e.g. the OpenAgent communication processes) are started automatically by the ‘ovc -start OPC’ command. Note, ‘opcsv -start’ will not start or re-start OV Control Core components. To start OV Control Core components, use ‘ovc’ command.

Runs the script ‘ovc -stop OPC’. Stops all HPOM manager services on the Management Server. Note, when HPOM manager services are stopped, the Java GUI does not terminate. However, it is not possible to receive messages, because the server is stopped. After restarting HPOM manager services, user interfaces reconnect to the appropriate HPOM services. Note, not all applications started by ‘ovc -start OPC’ are stopped with ‘ovc -stop OPC’ - the applications started by the HP Operations Platform as a prerequisite to HPOM (e.g. the OpenAgent communication processes) will remain running. You may stop the OpenAgent communication processes with a separate ‘ovc -stop ovoacomm’ command - but be sure that no other applications depending on them (e.g. HPOM IT/Administrations) are still running. Note, ‘opcsv -stop’ will not stop OV Control Core components. You may stop OV Control Core components with a separate ‘ovc’ command.

-status (or no option)
Displays current status of HPOM manager services, OpenAgent communication processes, the OV Control core CORE and SERVER categories on the Management Server. HPOM/UNIX server and agent processes can be in state “running” or “isn’t running"; OV Control Core CORE and SERVER processes can be in state “running", “isn’t running” or “aborted". Note, ‘opcsv -status’ delivers a detailed status for each HPOM Management Server, OpenAgent communication, the OV Control core CORE and SERVER process: ‘ovc -status OPC’ (’ovc -status ovoacomm’) which displays an overall status for all HPOM Management Server processes (OpenAgent communication process). To display an overall status for OV Control Core components use ‘ovc’ command.
HPOM/UNIX Server and Agent processes are traced using the HP Operations tracing tools installed during the installation of HPOM. Refer to the HPOM Tracing Concepts and User’s Guide for more details on HP Operations tracing.

Exit Values

The command exits with value zero after successful operation; otherwise the exit value is set to 1, and an appropriate message is displayed on stderr. In addition, the HPOM manager services protocol appends any warning or error to /var/opt/OV/log/System.txt.


Note: See HPOM Server processes for additional information about usage of this command
