No access to OmniBack II Cell

I've just installed OmniBack II 4.1 onto my L2000 server (ok, I know there's a new name for it from HP, but I really have neither the time nor ambition to try and remember it!...when trying to open OmniBack, I get the message "You do not have any access to OmniBack II functionality. Contact your OmniBack II administrator for details." Being that I AM the administrator, I couldn't tell myself a thing about what the problem might be...port 5555 is shown in /etc/services, the deamon is running...all looks good. In looking through the administrator's manuals, I haven't been able to find anything about where individual user's are added and/or permissions are assigned! :-|

Re: No access to OmniBack II Cell

Try to test the Omniback port by telneting directly to it.

telnet omniback 5555

you should see something like this,

command>telnet omniback 5555

Re: No access to OmniBack II Cell

Sounds like its a permissions problem.
either your account id (unix or NT) or your workstation do not have access.

Are you running xomni from the cell server as root? or some a windows workstation?

Re: No access to OmniBack II Cell

Check your users file for access

/etc/opt/omni/users/UserList

it should contain the following,

"root" "root" "*" yourcell "admin"

Re: No access to OmniBack II Cell

Hi,

Firstly you *must* verify that ALL omniback
daemons are in fact running. You will get this
error message when the 'crs' daemon is not
running. Below are the daemons that should be
running. If they are not try stopping and
restarting them using these scripts.

# ps -ef | grep omni

root 2769 1 0 Apr 21 ? 44:11 /opt/omni/lbin/rds -d
root 2776 1 0 Apr 21 ? 2:11 /opt/omni/lbin/mmd
root 2778 1 0 Apr 21 ? 0:29 /opt/omni/lbin/crs

# /sbin/init.d/omni stop
# /sbin/init.d/omni start

If this doesn't fix it, please post the message again in the omniback forum. You will get more responses and assistance there.

Cheers
~Michael~

Re: No access to OmniBack II Cell

Joe,

the Omniback users and the group they belong to (Adminstrators, Operators) are defined in /etc/opt/omni/users/UserList. Here are the default entries for root and an NT administrator:

# more UserList
"root" root * your.company.com admin
"WebReporting" "java" "applet" webreporting admin
"administrator" * * * admin

The first entry enables the Unix user root on the server your.company.com as an Omniback admin user.
The thirth entry enables a Windows adminstrator on any Windows client as an Omniback administrator.

You might have to restart Omniback after changing the UserList with vi or another editor.
