Integrating WFA 4.1 with OCUM 7.2

Going back to July I did a few posts on OCUM 7.2 and WFA 4.1 (everything’s in the Contents Page). I was going to do a post for Integrating WFA 4.1 with OCUM 7.2 but got side-tracked, so here is that post - good news is its fairly straightforward, just one thing to look out for. Integrating WFA 3.1 with OCUM 6.3 was done in this post.

Step 1 of 3: Creating a WFA user in OCUM

Logged into the OCUM 7.2 WebUI: https://OCUM_IP_FQDN

1) Click the cog icon in the top right corner
2) Click Users
3) Click + Add
4) Enter the details for the WFA user:

    Type: Database User
    Name: {WFA USER}
Password: {PASSWORD}
    Role: Integration Schema

5) Click Add

Step 2 of 3: Installing the ‘WFA pack for managing Clustered Data ONTAP’

Note: We have to do this step because otherwise you’ll get the following error when you try to pair OCUM with WFA:
“Failed to save settings for OnCommand Workflow Automation - Creation of datasource with name NAME in Workflow Automation failed”

1) Download the ‘WFA pack for managing Clustered Data ONTAP’ from automationstore.netapp.com. The link to the latest (Version 1.3.2) is here!

Logged into the WFA 4.1 WebUI: https://WFA_IP_FQDN

2) Click on Administration
3) Click on Import
4) Select the downloaded file (wfa-cdot-1.3.0-4394639.dar in my case) and click Open
5) After a wait (a few minutes) the ‘Import DAR File’ window appears. Click Import

6) All being well, after a wait (a few minutes) the ‘Import Success: DAR file imported successfully’ window appears. Click OK

Step 3 of 3: Pairing WFA with OCUM

Logged into the OCUM 7.2 WebUI: https://OCUM_IP_FQDN

1) Click the cog icon in the top right corner
2) Click on Workflow Automation
3) Enter the details to set up pairing

Name: {WFA USER}
Password: {PASSWORD}
Hostname or IP: {WFA Server FQDN or IP}
Username: {WFA ADMIN*}
Password: {PASSWORD}

*Here I’m using an account with the ‘Admin’ role. Because OCUM integrates with WFA (to manage protection relationships etcetera...) I’d go with ‘Admin’ role.

4) Click Save

5) If the ‘Do you want to trust this certificate?’ box pops up, click Yes
6) All being well, you should see the window ‘Workflow Automation Options Changed’. Click Yes

Note: If you check ‘Data Sources’ in the WFA UI, you’ll see a new Data Source added for UM 7.2.
