Preparing HP iLO MP (Management Processors)

In SPP the HP iLO MP operating system is an HP Integrity Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) Management Processor. SPP connects to HP iLO MP systems using SSH.

To prepare an HP iLO Management Processor for SPP

  1. Create a service account with the Administer User Accounts privilege and assign it a password.
  2. Verify that SSH is enabled.
  3. In SPP, create the asset and accounts for the HP iLO MP asset type using password authentication. Accounts can also be discovered.

Preparing IBM i (AS/400) systems

SPP supports IBM i systems (formerly known as AS/400).

To prepare IBM i systems for SPP

  1. Create a service account on the asset and assign it a password.
  2. Grant the service account the privileges required to use the chgusrprf command on other profiles.
  3. If not already installed, install a telnet server on the IBM iSeries (AS/400) system. If required, secure telnet with SSL.

    NOTE: Please refer to your IBM iSeries (AS/400) system documentation for details on installing and configuring the telnet server (and SSL). See the IBM Knowledge Center.

  4. Test the telnet server using a Windows-based 3270 emulator or on Linux, use the telnet-ssl or x3270 programs to test SSL and non-SSL connections to an IBM iSeries system.
  5. In SPP, create the asset and accounts for the IBM iSeries (AS/400) system using password authentication.
About certificate support for the telnet protocol

SPP automatically accepts any server certificate that the connection offers and does not verify the trust chain on the telnet certificate. In addition, SPP does not support client certificate selection, so if telnet requires that the client present a certificate that is signed by a recognized authority, SPP cannot support that configuration.

Preparing JunOS Juniper Networks systems

SPPuses the Juniper Networks JunOS operating system to manage Juniper Networks routers and switches. SPP connects to JunOS systems using SSH.

CAUTION: If you get the message: Shared configuration database modified, the global configuration is currently being edited. The edits must be committed or discarded so Safeguard can enter configure private mode. To resolve the problem, log in to the box interactively with SSH, run configure, and then run status to review the sessions currently editing the global configuration. Run rollback to discard any edits or commit to commit the changes.

To prepare a Juniper Networks JunOS system for SPP

  1. Create a service account that is a member of the super-user login class and assign it a password.
  2. Verify that SSH is enabled.
  3. In SPP, create the asset and accounts for the Juniper Networks JunOS asset type using password authentication.

Preparing MongoDB

SPPmakes an SSL connection to MongoDB using a TCP port and Bind IP address defined in the mongodb.conf file. You must enter this port number when adding a MongoDB asset to SPP.

To configure MongoDB for SPP

  1. Create a service account and assign it a password.

    NOTE: The service account must have permissions for remote connections and permissions to change passwords. Consult your MongoDB Security Guide for the appropriate settings for your organization.

  2. Verify that you can log in with the service account.
  3. In SPP, create the asset and accounts for the MongoDB asset type using password authentication. You must specify the Database instance name and the Port used by the database instance.

    NOTE: When you create an account of Dialog User or Communication Data type, SPP allows you to set the account password or reset the password. Use the Reset Password option to reset the password for this account. If you use the Set Password option and enter the same password used in MongoDB, the password check in SPP will fail.
