HPE OneView

Info

Starting from TKU April 2022, HPE OneView Management Controller and HPE OneView Dashboard Management Controller nodes were changed to Host nodes with corresponding management SI running on these nodes. 

Overview

HPE OneView and HPE OneView Dashboard by default are discovered through heuristics, so no credentials are needed to be enabled for the scan. However, expect to retrieve little information in such case. A Host name is reported as host IP with underscores, for example, 172_22_XX_XX. No additional links are modeled.

To get the full model of this product, we recommend enabling HPE OneView REST API credentials. Hence, the Host node will have a precise name, and OneView (Dashboard) Software Instance will have management links to related Devices and Hosts and Blade Enclosures.

Nodes and Attributes

Host

Info

HPE OneView (Dashboard) host is modeled based on the REST API call output so the amount of related data and attributes differ from the standard SSH host discovery. 

  • type
  • key
  • model
  • name
  • os
  • os_build
  • os_class
  • os_type
  • os_vendor
  • os_version
  • serial
  • vendor
  • __all_ip_addrs
  • __all_mac_addrs
  • age_count

Software Instance

The HPE.OneView pattern module is responsible for modeling HPE OneView(Dashboard) Software Instance that has management links to OneView managed nodes. 

  • type
  • key
  • name
  • short_name
  • version
  • product_version
  • build

API Calls

Info

Starting from TKU Aug 2023, pagination is supported for HPE OneView API calls. For more details, see (DRDC1-21530).

The mentioned nodes should already be present or modeled in BMC Discovery. The following API calls are executed by the HPE.OneView pattern module to find managed devices, hosts, network devices, etc. and link them to OneView SI:

  • /rest/server-hardware
  • /rest/interconnects
  • /rest/storage-systems

HPE OneView Blade Enclosures 

Info

Starting from TKU September 2023, support for HPE OneView Blade Enclosures discovered through HPE OneView REST API credentials is added.

The HPE_SynergyBladeSystem module executes /rest/enclosures API call. Bbased on the output the following nodes and relationships are modeled:

Blade Enclosure

Hardware Container

  • key 
  • vendor 
  • model
  • type = "Blade Enclosure"
  • name
  • serial
  • part_number

Managed by HPE OneView SI. Containing related HPE Processor Blades and HPE I/O Modules.

Processor Blade

Hardware Component

  • key 
  • vendor 
  • model
  • type = "Processor Blade"
  • name
  • slot
  • uuid
  • all_ip_addrs

Contained within the Blade Enclosure node and has Provider-Consumer relations to the host that resides on this Bay.

I/O Module

Hardware Component

  • key 
  • vendor 
  • model
  • type = "I/O Module"
  • name
  • serial 
  • role
  • bay_number
  • all_ip_addrs
  • part_number
  • linked_enclosure

Contained within Blade Enclosure Hardware Container node.
