HP SIM 5.0 and Compaq/HP Agent compatibility

HP SIM 5.0 can receives snmp traps from all Compaq and HP Agents?

I'm managing a series of Compaq Server Agent version 4.80 , 5.30, etc....

I set SNMP to send traps to HP SIM 5.0 Server.

This agents will forward snmp traps every time that an error will occur?

HP SIM can receive SNMP traps from any device that support SNMP. I think you can receive SNMP traps from old compaq agents without problem.
Just curiosity: why you don't upgrade to last HP agents/Proliant support pack? You will have significant more information/monitoring than you have from SNMP.

Re: HP SIM 5.0 and Compaq/HP Agent compatibility

What do you suggest me? To Install only ASM Driver or all PSP ?

If your suggestion will be to install ASM Driver only, where can I download it?
