Configuring HP SIM to only use one NIC

I am running on a server that has two NICs and i would like to bind HP SIM to only use one NIC. I am unsure how to do this and the information found online doesn't help.

 

Can anyone help me with this

Re: Configuring HP SIM to only use one NIC

I had the same issues as I installed Insight Control on a beefy server and wished to use SIM on one nic, Deployment solution on another etc. Although you can bind SMH to a single NIC, it seems SIM will use all Nics! I opened a support ticket with HP regarding this and they said there was no way to change this. Very disappointing.

Re: Configuring HP SIM to only use one NIC

I found the information below about making an IP the primary CMS IP. I never had to use it but thanks for the help.

I tried that on 7 but it's still listening on both IP addresses
