    Control-M Authorization

      Hello team 

       

      In Version 9.18.200 i dont see reporting tab for authorization . If i need to get the user and group details along with privilege detail , is there any way to achieve it .

       

      Currently i have many user and group and getting the screenshot of each user with privilege and group with privilege manually would kill us .

       

      Is there anyway to achieve this .

          This report was not included in 9.18.200. I do believe they will be addressing this in a later version.

          If you are running with compatibility mode turned on, you should be able to use the report from a v9.0.00 client

           

          If you have compatibility turned off, it is still possible to use the version 9 client by altering the installed-versions.txt for the version 9 client by adding the following line:

           

          IM                      PLATFORM       PACKAGE-DATE   INSTALL-DATE   VERSION        INSTALL-TYPE   COMMENTS      

          ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

          DRNFT.9.0.00             Windows        Jun-11-2015    Sep-23-2016    9.0.00.000     INSTALLATION   EM Client installed by Admin user

           

          This will allow your v9.0.00 client to connect to the 9.18.200 EM to generate the old authorization report.

           

          Thanks,

            Hello Haw

             

            On 9.18.200 client i have added the below lines

             

            PIM                  PLATFORM   PACKAGE-DATE   INSTALL-DATE   VERSION    INSTALL-TYPE   COMMENTS

              Lakshminarasimhan Santhanam This entry should be made for client version 9.0.00 as that is the client that still has the reporting facility that has EM authorizations. It is basically a workaround to allow you to use the old report with EM version 9.18.200.

               

              Thanks,

              Haw

                Hello  Haw

                 

                I did added the 9.18.200 installed-version.txt details to client v9.

                 

                But when i tried to login with port 13075 it gives me error ( corba error) and when i try to do it with 18080 again it get failed .

                  Lakshminarasimhan,

                   

                  The entry will not allow you to log in via the v9 gui to connect to the v9.18.200 Enterprise Manager, however it will allow your v9 Reporting Facility to connect to your 9.18.200 database and run the same EM authorizations report you ran before.

                   

                  You can also run it using the emreportcli:

                   

                  "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\Control-M EM 9.0.00\Default\bin32\emreportcli.exe" -U <dbuser> -P <dbuser password> -s <em server> -template "CONTROL-M All Users" -template_path "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\Control-M EM 9.0.00\Default\Data\Reporting\Templates" -output_file_type PDF -output_file_path "<location and filename>"

                   

                  Of course change anything that is encapsulated by <> and the paths to the commands if they are different.

                   

                  Thanks,

                   

                  Haw

                    thanks for your input but when i tried that after updated installed-version.txt for v9 with details of v9.18.200

                     

                    and when i tried open emreportcli this is the error it is giving me

                     

                    Login Failed.

                    CORBA initialization failed

                    This error can occur for any of the following reasons:

                    - The CORBA Naming Service is not running.

                    - The CORBA Naming Service listening port is blocked by the firewall.

                    - The CORBA configuration file is invalid.

                      Can you post your installed-version.txt?

                          This is mine, you can try using this. Remove the lines with fixpacks you don't have except the last one where it begins with PANFT.9.0.18.200:

                              Yes, Are you able to connect with your v9.0.00 reporting facility?

                                Manually altering the content of the installed-versions.txt file is absolutely not the way to go and neither recommended.

                                I would recommend you opening a support case for them to look into your problem.

                                    Hi David

                                     

                                    I did and they said the same . I have asked them to drop an email saying feature is not there in 9.18.200 so hold audit team for a while .

                                     

                                    We need to have some solution right , else i would need to provide them screenshot of all user and group manually ( 1400 plus) which i dont think is the right option
