Software available with servers?


I have come into a large HP environment with a lot of servers of varying types and ages...

I am trying to understand the "HP way" of monitoring these devices but am finding it hard to find the answers to the most basic of questions...

How can I tell from a server serial number if it is still in warranty with HP and what warranty that is?

Also is HP SIM free or not, also there are a large number of option packs such as Proliant etc... are these free?? How can I tell if I am enabled to use these?

The servers currently have no documentation at all so I am starting from scratch and trying to sort through the chaff!

All the above applies to the iLO environments too? How would I go about this?!

If it's a large environment you should get a hold of your account team or reseller and ask them for help getting SIM installed. Go to for an overview of the available tools. SIM can be downloaded from If you also install the remote support pack it will give you the status of support contracts and warrantys.
