HP SIM 5.3 - Failure to discover TRU64 machines

I installed HP SIM 5.3 the other day and have gotten some fairly strange results when trying to discover my machines.

I have set the Auto Discover process to discover an IP range, and for the most part the servers come back with the right information.

For some reason it does not get them all though:

Starting identification process...
Checking for known running web servers.
Checking for System Management Home Page and other HP web agents.
Received a response from the system management homepage, this system supports SMH.
Checking for WBEM support on system.
This system does not have any SMI-S CIMOM installed
This system doesn't have a server CIMOM installed locally, or cannot connect to it using all credentials specified
Running WBEM rules based identification.
Cannot get ComputerSystem WBEM/WMI data from the system
Running VM Identification.
The system is not a VM Host, or WBEM credentials may not be specified, skipping VM Identification
Running WS-Man identification.
The system did not respond to WS-Management, verify credentials.
Checking for SNMP support on system.
The system responded to a SNMP request, it supports SNMP.
Running SNMP base Cluster identification using common cluster MIB.
This was not a system with the common cluster MIBs supported.
Running HP ProLiant management agent identification
System has the SNMP ProLiant server (foundation) agents installed, adding system type.
Running HP NetServer identification.
System supports the NetServer SNMP agent, adding system type
Running HP-UX SNMP identification.
System does not have the HPUX SNMP agents installed.
Running SNMP System Type Manager identification.
Found matching SNMP System Type Manager rule, added as possible system type
Checking for DMI protocol support.
DMI is globally disabled, skipping DMI identification.
Running DMI System Type Manager identification.
DMI is globally disabled, skipping DMI identification.
Running HP-UX DMI identification.
DMI is globally disabled, skipping DMI identification.
Running HP/Compaq Desktop identification.

Running HP DMI Desktop identification.

Running Generic DMI identification.
DMI is globally disabled, skipping DMI identification.
Running SSH Protocol identification.
The system supports SSH protocol
Running SSH Identification.


This only happens on TRU64 machines, and only on some of them. What happens it that the identification task just "hangs" on Running SSH Identification - and the main discovery task is listed as finished.

I have tried running snmptest from my CMS server to all the afflicted, and I get the correct replies so why HP SIM is having such trouble identifying them is beyond me - maybe I should just untick the "ssh" box in protocols and see if that helps?

Any pointers or hints would be appreciated as this is really starting to annoy me....

Seems I answered my own question there at the end ....

"maybe I should just untick the "ssh" box in protocols and see if that helps?" - too keep it short, it helps :-)

Well guess that was that then - have a nice day and dont let me interrupt you anymore.
