Monitoring Hardware status on servers

Hi,

Does anyone know how to monitor the hardware status of a HP DL servers without actually installing ACU, System Mgmt homepage, HIM etc utilities?. We have a tool to report any errors logged in event viewer of a server and we actively monitor them and act. We would like to know if there is a way where we can allow HP warnings and error be logged to Windows event viewer so that we can use our existing monitoring setup for monitoring hardware health.

Thanks

Re: Monitoring Hardware status on servers

Thanks but that needs SNMP configuration etc right?. Isn't there a simple way to do it?. Also HP System Management Homepage doesn't show any info if agents aren't installed. Expected?

Re: Monitoring Hardware status on servers

no since Insight Management agents populate that tool

o what about

HP Insight Management WBEM Providers for Windows Server 2003/2008

Hi,

This looks cool, i could get storage, network and processor info in system mgmt homepage. How about other parts like System info, serial number, memory, PCI slots etc?

Re: Monitoring Hardware status on servers

I know WBEM has less information that insight agents and SNMP but I have not gone that deep reading WBEM agents

so I think both of us have to read some PDFs
