The configuration push feature in VMware vFabric Hyperic tc Server plugin does not update Hyperic resource configuration properties

Symptoms
  • Using the configuration push feature of the VMware vFabric Hyperic tc Server plugin does not update the Hyperic resource configuration properties.
  • vFabric Hyperic is unable to monitor the tc Server.
  • This issue occurs when you change the JMX configuration of the tc Server (the JMX port) using the configuration push feature
  • This issue occurs until you manually update the Hyperic resource configuration properties with the new configuration.

Purpose

This article alerts vFabric Hyperic and tc Server administrators to an expected behavior where the configuration push feature of the vFabric Hyperic tc Server plugin does not automatically update the Hyperic resource configuration properties for that tc Server.

Cause

This issue occurs when you use the configuration push feature of the VMware vFabric Hyperic tc Server plugin to allow tcServer administrators to change configuration parameters for the tc Server. vFabric Hyperic uses Java Management Extensions (JMX) to monitor the tcServer. When you change the JMX configuration of tc Server (JMX port) using the configuration push feature (or any other method), Hyperic is unable to monitor the tc Server until the Hyperic resource configuration properties are manually updated with the new configuration.

Resolution

To resolve any issue where the JMX configuration changes for a tc Server, manually update the tc Server resource configuration properties.
 
To manually update the tc Server resource configuration properties:
  1. Log in to the vFabric Hyperic UI as Administrator.
  2. Navigate to the tcServer resource.
  3. Click the Inventory tab.
  4. In Configuration Properties, click Edit.
  5. Update the configuration properties.
  6. Click OK to apply the changes.
