Monitoring HP and Dell hardware?

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone, I need an advice or two on monitoring Dell and HP hardware.

 

 

My company needs to monitor our server hardware (Dell and HP - We have several generation of ProLiant and Poweredge), preferably without the need for installing anything extra on the servers (like Dell OpenManage or HP offline bundle). Hopefully we can get the job done with SNMP traps from ILO and iDrac? We have ESXi installed on the servers with standard vmware images.

 

We have a lot of HP products available to do the job: HP System Insight Manager, HP Operations, HP Network Node Manager. We need to be able to send hardware alerts to HP Openview attached to the specific CI.

 

Any ideas on best practise or which HP product is the best one to use?

Hello Pete ,

 

The Solution which can be used is HP Operation Manager , HP  NNM , HP SIM , for all HP Servers ...for Dell i don't have a clue , but there must be Software like SIM with Dell Hardware Solutions .

 

First , Make sure that SIM agent is installed on every single Server and configured with SNMP service with the Correct Configuration and trap destination need to be NNM or OM .

 

Make sure that SIM agent Data Source is SNMP >>>

 

Second ,

 

From NNM u have to upload the SIM MIB files which are coming with NNM by default ... after loading the MIB's you need to load the Traps with in these MIB's,

 

For Test send SNMP TEST Trap , should u recieve it in NNM , u can simulate also the Hardware failure , 

 

 

 

I have done this test Last week and it worked perfectly ..

 

 

All the best .

Same for OM , but the only change is that u need to enable and apply the Policies of SIM solution within the OM , and it should work as well .

 

Let me know if you need any help on that .

All the best .

Dell Hardware can be managed via NNMi

Hello Tanish , 

 

He is asking for Hardware events to NNM , you can manage the server in NNM for Availability only without anything else !

 

 

All the best .
