alert from Standby OA??


Now that I have my hands on the C7000, I ran a few tests. I could see alerts coming from email, syslog if I were to unplug the ILO cable from the primary OA and can see the OA failover to the standby.

But if I were to unplug the ILO cable from the standby OA, I am not getting any alerts. I could see the error message from the Standby OA's syslog window, but I like to be alerted.
I don't want my Standby to fail and I am not aware. Is there anything that can be done? or do I have to write a script to check the ILO?

thanks

>>Has anyone tested a standby OA lossig the ILO connection before?

We use HP SIM to monitor all our servers/enclosures and today I did test - disconnect standby OA from network.
I didn't receive any event in HP SIM, and in "All enclosure" view in HP SIM enclosure with disconnected OA is still in "green" status.

>>or do I have to write a script to check the ILO?
I assume you can define automatic event handling in HP SIM in order to monitor OA status, but I didn't tried this.
