MSA1500 monitoring with System Management Home page (VMware)

I have 4 HP Proliants DL380 G5's running ESX 3.0.2 connected to a MSA1500 via fiber switches. I installed the HP management agents (including the storage agent) version 7.9 on the servers. The agents see the HBA's (Brocade QLE2460) but do NOT see the MSA or the attached hard drives. I want to be able to monitor the MSA1500 and the physical hard drives use the HP system management homepage and the Insight Insight Manager.

Has anyone successfully done this? If so, please help.

I've tried agents 7.6b, 7,8 and 7.9 with ESX 3.0.1 and 3.02 with no success.

For testing, I installed WIN2003 on one of the servers and it sees the MSA and the drives.

Ususally on linux on Proliant servers you need to start the acucli and then look on the Mgmt page. How did you configure your disks originally?

Hi Peter
See the README in attach (included in hpmgmt-7.9.0-vmware3x.tgz).

"For the storage agents to display the correct information for the Qlogic and Emulex HBAs, the libraries corresponding to the Qlogic and Emulex driver versions have to be installed on the ESX Service Console.
Please ensure that you run through these instructions ONLY if you do not see a link for either the HBA or the target drives in the System Management Homepage.
The following steps guide you through the installation for the corresponding
libraries..."

Hope this help

I did install the newest Qlogic drives and folled the instructions in the readme. It still did not work.

I originally configured the MSA with the CLI using the serial console port.

I'm not sure how to enable the ACUCLI. I'll investigate.

I installed the ACUCLI. The only controller it sees is the internal SAS controller.

As i remember it...try

Instl 1.4.2.14 or later java jre
Instl the acucli using the cmd acucli -R
Inst psp
Open the management page
localhost: 2381
enter pw
There should be another link on the left to the ACU.
