CIM7 and non-Compaq desktop computers

Can CIM7 be used to monitor non-Compaq desktop computers from a Proliant 1600 server?

Re: CIM7 and non-Compaq desktop computers

Yes you can, but 2 conditions:
1) The non-HP/Compaq desktops need a DMI agent running that CIM7 has discovered

or, more difficult

2) The non-HP/Compaq desktops need a SNMP agent running that CIM7 has discovered and where CIM7 has imported the MIB files from.

The 2nd option will give you the best results, viewing DMI only devices in CIM7 has limited functionality on non-Compaq systems.
