HP SIM 7.2 doesn't discover enclosure


HP SIM 7.2 doesn't discover enclosure

Hello, all.


I have several c7000 enclosures (OA firmware is 3.71) with only BL460c Gen8 blades and two storage blade D2200sb. I deployed HP SIM 7.1 (after that I upgraded it up 7.2). There is a problem: one Onboard Administrator is discovered, but SIM doesn't see that it's enclosure with components: blades, power supplies, switches, fans... SIM sees only OA as Management Processor. Other enclosures are discovered fine. All firewall rules are same for all enclosures.


During fail discovery task in log I see such information: "The system responds to the HTTP request but cannot get the XML output. It is normal for servers not to get the XML data. But XML Reply in enclosure is enabled, linkView XML Reply  displays right information...

What can I check more?


Thanks for yours answers.

Pull up the XML Reply in your browser and see if that works and look for any weird formatting issues.


I had seen it once before that the Description or PIN Code or something had special charachters and upset SIM upon Import.
