Under the above website, expand the product tree and go to "HP Client Automation software " link. Here you can find " HP Out-of-Band Management Console " under the components.

Downloads would allow you to download OOBMC.
Its great software, I am awaiting many more to try it out so that we can share our issues in this forum ;-)

Re: Try out - Its great : Out of Band management console software

Hi

I have successfuly installed Intel Setup and Configuration Service and HP OOB Management console. Components of both products is on the same server 2003 R2 SP2, SQL 2005 SP2.

When I connect to Setup and Configuration console it success.

When I try to connect to OOB console it failed with error "Could not connect to SCS". I use the same user.

What are your experiences?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi Ivan,

Can you be more specific about the problem you find? Are you running in TLS mode or Non TLS mode? OOBMC by default installs in TLS mode?

Can you please send the log files ? I dont relate to problem you mentioned.
Thanks

Re: Try out - Its great : Out of Band management console software

Im using Intel SCS 5.0.0.92 and HP OOBMC 3.00.

Anyone that have got it to work with this versions?

tomcat is reporting errors in the log, can it be because oobmc cant read from the db? version problems?

Re: Try out - Its great : Out of Band management console software

Ive tried to find it, but it dosnt say what version that is supported in any pdf or webpage from hp.
Occasional Advisor

Re: Try out - Its great : Out of Band management console software

The version of SCS supported with OOBMC is bundled with OOBMC only. There is a product change which happens from OOBMC side to support newer versions and hence you cant use any version of OOBMC along with the OOBMC version.

Hope this helps

Re: Try out - Its great : Out of Band management console software

I meant any version of OOBMC with any version of SCS.

The user guide bundled with the product should have enough information to guide you to the right SCS location.

Occasional Advisor

Re: Try out - Its great : Out of Band management console software

Tried to find it but Intel don't point to ISV versions in their documents and HP is not refering to any special version of SCS.

What versions are you using?

Reinstalled it and problem persists.

Re: Try out - Its great : Out of Band management console software

You need to download OOBMC from HP site, looks like you got something from else where. Use the following website, you need to have HP passport for the same,which I guess you would already have.

https://h10078.www1.hp.com/cda/hpms/display/main/hpms_content.jsp?zn=bto&cp=1-10^9783_4000_100

Look under technical resources.

Or better deal is

www.hp.com/go/client

Expand products and look under client automation standard.

Re: Try out - Its great : Out of Band management console software

It is working with Intel SCS 3.3.2.1.0 so it has to be that HP OOBMC v3 evaluation dont work with Intel SCS 5.0.0.92.

Or anyone that has got it to work?
Occasional Advisor

Re: Try out - Its great : Out of Band management console software

â SCS 3.3.0.8 , that's the one bundled with OOBMC 3.0. Under the path

ovcmoobmc\SetupConfService in the oobmc bundle downloaded from the location I pointed earlier.
