HP SIM 6.2 and ESXi 4.1

Hi All,

After googling and reading for a while but I cannot manage to get my new DL 380 G7 register to HP SIM 6.2

DL 380 G7 was installed with HP_ESXi 4.1 update 1 installation iso which is included all HP drivers and HP CIM. From vclient, I can see all sensors under heath status.

However, after discovering, HP SIM show new server as unmanage system. HP SIM detect WBEM is running on the box but no serial, OS, hardware can be detected. root password has been entered to credential box.

Did I miss any step? What should I do to make HP SIM get all hardware details of new server?
Thanks.

Re: HP SIM 6.2 and ESXi 4.1

what credentials have you configured to access the CIM providor information? You must specify appropriate credentials for the system in SIM. Also, ensure all ports are open. Might be worth checking/disabling firewalls to make sure they are nmot interfering

Thank you for you reply shocko.
I'm sorry, but do you mean credential & firewall as attached images?
I'm a bit new to HP SIM, sorry about that.

Re: HP SIM 6.2 and ESXi 4.1

Exactly. The idea is SIM in regards to credentials isa as follows:

- At a global level you set SNMP community strings and WBEM or SMI-S credentials to access your systems during identification.
- During identification, it tries these credentials against the discovered system and if any of them work, they are saved into the credentials list for that system and used again.

WBEM/CIM by default requires username/password or certificate based authentication and SNMP reuires community strings/traps/authorized managers.

If you need more detail ping me back ;)

Hi Ken. I have seen the same issue, and what we have tested to confirm the issue was to create a local user account on the ESX host. and then add that user account to be a member of the root group. I was then able to successfully discover and accurately inventory the hardware.

This is not the ideal solution, and we have engaged HP for a better solution, as this was not the same level of security that was present in ESXi 4.0.

Thank you everyone.
Will try to see if it works.

You will also then need to subscribe the server to wbem events, otherwise you're only half way there.
You need to do this step otherwise if the ESXi host detects a HW error it will not send it anywhere.

What response or fix did you get from HP? We are having the same issue and do not want to use an account with such permissions as root.
