Re: HP SIM Agent installation on ESXi

Hello,

you do not need install sim agent on ESXi . It uses WBEM integration.

here are some importand docs:

And of course - do not miss there great page from HP dedicated to VMware.

Re: HP SIM Agent installation on ESXi

Hi,

 

Please verify inside HP SIM under Options - Power Management that you added the credentials of the ILO in the list... HP SIM communicates via the ILO to collect power management information and needs credentials for that...

Re: HP SIM Agent installation on ESXi

Bart,One small clarification i hope here its asking for client servers ILO credentials 

But in my setup we have different-2 ILO credentials  for all servers and in list option we have only 5 default username and password . How can i put for other servers.whether i need to change the password for all and put one common password or how can we go ahead...Thanks...

Re: HP SIM Agent installation on ESXi

Hi,

 

Correct you can only add 5 credentials in that specific list.

 

So you will need to streamline your accounts from ILO to less than 5 or maybe implement AD integration or so?

 

In my case I have +500 servers where we use one specific service account for all ILO's...

 

 

Kr,

Bart
