How do I send a test event from ESXi host, to confirm HP SIM monitoring is working?

Lawrence had a testing question:

 

*****************

I have a customer who is unsure if their (4.0) ESXi blade servers are sending WBEM alerts back to HP SIM.

 

I have looked at the following document from VMware’s KB but it talks about using SNMP.

 

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1008065

 

The HP ESXi image does not support SNMP but uses WBEM, so this document isn’t all that useful for me.

 

Can anybody suggest a method of initiating a test event from an ESXi host back to HP SIM?

 

Please give some explicit instructions, because I am not a VMware expert.
