Hardware monitoring HPE Gen 10 servers with event notifier replacement

Hi all,

we were using HPE servers for many years, starting with DL380 Gen6.

Up to Gen9 we were using the built-in tools such as HP event notifier, SNMP service, HP system management homepage, etc. to monitor our hardware and in an event of failure the system sent out an alert email. It was working perfectly!! However, as far as I understand the situation has changed with Gen10 servers. The above mentioned tools aren't available anymore or am I wrong?

What kind of software is now necessary to monitor the hardware? Are there still free tools available? Or do we need an iLo advanced license? Would that already be enough? Can iLo advanced be configured to send an email in case there is a hardware problem? Or do I also need additional server software like a central management software? I have read a lot already about this topic but at the moment I am kind of confused about it.

Oh btw. we are only using Windows Server (2016 + 2019), no Linux etc.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Greetings

iLO5 in Gen10 replaces all the previous management.  SNMP and Alert mail are still available, just configured diferently.  This is a good place to start

Thank you Jimmy - it does look like a good starting point and I am going to read through it!

Just one question: Do I need any additional licenses to use the alert and monitoring features within iLo5? I would try to get a trial license then.

Thank you!

Agentless Management is included with iLO standard, email alerts require the advanced license
