CommandView EVA 9.3 Upgrade and HPSIM

We are planning to upgrade our lone COmmandView server managing 5 EVAs to 9.3. Firmware reqs have been made. Existing CV Server is being actively monitored by HP SIM and HP is autoalerted for any faults on the EVAs out of this COmmandView. After the Upgrade -- are there things that need to be updated HP-SIM wise?

Also, we're planning to add another server as a nother CommandView node to divvy up load and serve as backup instead first CV Node is out and broken. And we also want to have HP-SIM monitor the EVAs that are being actively managed from this environment..

My Questions:

- WIll HP SIM automatically detect and still erport whenever management of an EVA switches to this CV Server?
- Will it detect the failover or grab of management?

As an HP Person set up HP SIM monitoring... does anyone have a step by step HOWTO on what needs to be installed for thi CV Server to be managed/reported on by our HP SIM Server?

I take it: SMI-S provider is installed/updated along with the COmmandViwe install -- right? And all that's needed really is install HP-SIM Agent on this command view server and just discover the EVAs whilst the EVAs are activey managed from this CV Server?

TIA!

Hi Alzhy,

Don't forget to create a trust relationship in CV for SIM server. If you are upgrading not a fresh install then it should pick the old settings/relationships to new version. But in case not then make that.

Option is at Server Options -> SIM/RSM Trust Relationships -> Install Certificate
