I've tried viewing the user guide, but it seems no matter which browser i use to try and download it, adobe claims it is either not the proper format or corrupted.

Hi Daniel, The user guide has been updated. Thanks a lot for try this Fling!

Jun 09, 2020

Sorry, that's corrupted. We will update it soon.

Any idea if this will support BMC Atrium CMDB

Jul 02, 2019

Thanks for reaching! The Flowgate is open to any CMDB systems.
Currently we have already open source it's code on https://github.com/vmware/flowgate Please feel free to open a Issue if you want it supports more CMDB systems. Meanwhile since it provide restful APIs for all the functionalities, it's quite straight forward to write an adapter for any CMDB systems.

Greetings!
I'm trying to install a FlowGate on my vsphere 6.5. But when i'm trying to power it on - i can't get to the web interface.
I can see the error at the console:
failed to start wait for network to be configured

and it's failing on the wait-for-network part. If i'll perform login - i can see that network is configured correctly and working as it should.
Docker network also doesn't overlap with my network (i checked that).

Hi

Thanks for try Flowgate!

You can ignore the network warning if it finally startup . The OS will restart the network several time during the setup process.

Can you please help post the result of "docker ps -a"

Also you can check wikipage https://github.com/vmware/flowgate/wiki/FAQ to see if you can find some useful information.

Regards,
Yixing.

I redeployed FlowGate, but still can't login to the web interface for some reason.
here is output from docker ps -a

Sorry, I can't attach img here, and output is pretty messy. But all containers looks UP and running. https is inaccessible

Jun 26, 2019

except the first container

Jun 26, 2019

Hi sorry for the inconvenient.

Could you please post the log files under /opt/vmware/flowgate/logs/management ?

Meanwhile you can simply run "docker restart flowgate-management-container" to try to start that service.

Thanks

***************************
APPLICATION FAILED TO START
***************************

Description:

The Tomcat connector configured to listen on port 49611 failed to start. The port may already be in use or the connector may be misconfigured.

Action:

Verify the connector's configuration, identify and stop any process that's listening on port 49611, or configure this application to listen on another port.

So - it says that there is a missing file "/conf/flowgate.p12"

info.log - too big to post, and it refers to the same errors as far as i can see

I didn't try to restart the flowgate-management-container - will wait for your response about missing file (I assume that I'll face with the same error)

By the way would you mind to share your email ?

I can setup a zoom meeting so that we can investigate your environment together which should be more efficient.

Ok, could you please check the folder

/opt/vmware/flowgate/conf/management

and issue command " ls -all"

I will setup an vsphere 6.5 to see if I can reproduce this or not.

Jun 28, 2019

Here is the output. Looks like there is only one file - application.properties:

root@photon-machine [ /opt/vmware/flowgate/conf/management ]# ls -all

Just talked with Vladimir, it turns out it failed to update the openssl module . Manually update the module and regenerate the p12 file solve the problem.
