Changing the Hostname and IP Address of the TSOM servers

Technote (FAQ)


Question

What modifications are required if we need to change the Hostname and IP Address of the CMS, EAM and Database servers?

Answer


Periodically, devices and servers on a network have a hostname/IP address change due to network restructuring, or movement to another segment on the network. When this is done, the following is required for TSOM's transition.

For the workstation logging in to the CMS, change the URL used in your browser:

    Original:
    http://<oldhostname or IP Address>:8080/TSOM-Portal/
    New:
    http://<newhostname or IP Address>:8080/TSOM-Portal/

When the EAM is re-numbered, modify the EAM's hostname/IP Address in the EAMs and Sensors Configuration for each EAM which has a change of hostname. Further, the eam.ser file on the EAM must be deleted. This file is located in {tsom_home}/state/eam/.

If the database server is being renumbered, there comes some complexity in configuration modifications. For the database connection TSOM needs for archiving and retrieval, modify these three files:

{tsom_home}/conf/db/repository_database.xml
    Look for the line:
    dbalias="/<oldhostname or IP Address>/:50003/tsomdb"
    and change to:
    dbalias="/<newhostname or IP Address>/:50003/tsomdb"

tomcat/webapps/TSOM-Reports/WEB-INF/classes/conf/db/repository_database.xml
    Look for:
    dbalias="//<oldhostname or IP Address>:50003/tsomdb"
    change to:
    dbalias="//<newhostname or IP Address>:50003/tsomdb"

{tsom_home}/tomcat/conf/server.xml
    Look for the line:
    connectionURL="jdbc:db2://<oldhostname or IP Address>:50003/tsomdb"
    change to:
    connectionURL="jdbc:db2://<newhostname or IP Address>:50003/tsomdb"

The database server name also needs to be modified in the latest fixpack directory, as well as the Uninstall directory. From the {tsom_home}/maint/ directory, look for the latest Fixpack release:
    [root@ATLSUPLAB01 tsom/maint]# ls
    4.1.1-TIV-TSOM-FP010 4.1.1-TIV-TSOM-FP015 DeviceSupport

In this installation, FP015 is the latest fixpack, so look for these two files to modify accordingly:

{tsom_home}/maint/4.1.1-TIV-TSOM-FP015/tmp/WEB-INF/classes/conf/db/repository_database.xml
    Change:
    dbalias="//<oldhostname or IP Address>:50003/tsomdb"
    to:
    dbalias="//<newhostname or IP Address>:50003/tsomdb"

{tsom_home}/maint/4.1.1-TIV-TSOM-FP015/Uninstall_4.1.1-TIV-TSOM-FP015/installvariables.properties
    Change the lines:
    DBURL=jdbc\:db2\://<oldhostname or IP Address>\:50003/tsomdb
    CONS_USER_DB_HOST_INPUT_1=<oldhostname or IP Address>
    CONS_USER_DB_HOST_INPUT="<oldhostname or IP Address>"
    to:
    DBURL=jdbc\:db2\://<newhostname or IP Address>\:50003/tsomdb
    CONS_USER_DB_HOST_INPUT_1=<newhostname or IP Address>
    CONS_USER_DB_HOST_INPUT="<newhostname or IP Address>"

{tsom_home}/Uninstall_Tivoli Security Operations Manager/installvariables.properties
    Change the lines:
    DBURL=jdbc\:db2\://<oldhostname or IP Address>\:50003/tsomdb
    CONS_USER_DB_HOST_INPUT_1=<oldhostname or IP Address>
    USER_DB_HOST_INPUT=<oldhostname or IP Address>
    CONS_USER_DB_HOST_INPUT="<oldhostname or IP Address>"
    to:
    DBURL=jdbc\:db2\://<newhostname or IP Address>\:50003/tsomdb
    CONS_USER_DB_HOST_INPUT_1=<newhostname or IP Address>
    USER_DB_HOST_INPUT=<newhostname or IP Address>
    CONS_USER_DB_HOST_INPUT="<newhostname or IP Address>"
