I would take a look into the abovementioned script...

/var/tmp/BAAa10490/catalog/WBEMServices

If it's not there anymore, search for it in the .depot tape depot file, you can simply untar it. Or if it's a net-based install, search for it on the ignite server.

Looks like it is failing around here:
ERROR: Failed to start cimserver
for loading of mof files.

start_cimserver
if [ $exitval -eq $FAILURE ]
then
echo " for loading of mof files."
exit $exitval
fi

# Function: start_cimserver
# Purpose : Start up the cimserver daemon.
start_cimserver()
/opt/wbem/sbin/cimserver >>$INSTALL_LOG 2>&1
INSTALL_LOG=/var/opt/wbem/install.log

So look in $INSTALL_LOG?

In the /var/opt/wbem/install.log I cans ee that :

=====
Stop the cimserver process
PGS10013: Shutdown time-out expired. A forced shutdown of the CIM server is initiated.
Fri Nov 6 12:56:43 MET 2009
PGS10008: Unable to connect to the CIM server. CIM server may not be running.
Fri Nov 6 13:06:38 MET 2009
Unable to connect to CIM Server. CIM Server may not be running.

Re: WBEMServices installation failed - Failed to start cimserver

what if you try to manually start it?

# /opt/wbem/sbin/cimserver

Re: WBEMServices installation failed - Failed to start cimserver

Thanks to the HP Support, I found the solution.
A variable was not properly set. I just add the following line :
export PEGASUS_USE_DEFAULT_MESSAGES=true
in the /var/adm/sw/products/WBEMServices/WBEM-CORE/configure file.

After I added the same variable in the /sbin/init.d/cimserver.

After that a swconfig WBEMServices.WBEM-CORE solve definitively the problem.

Thank you to take some time to try to help me.

Regards.
