HP SIM 6.3 server monitoring state disabled



I have several servers discovered by HP SIM showing  Current monitoring state: Disabled (This system cannot be monitored.)


and monitoring cannot be enabled since all radio buttons are greyed out. Two of these servers are ESX hosts.


do I need to modify other setting to get the monitoring status enabled?

Hi Kristina,


This can be an issue with the Virtual Machine.



If the virtual machine names have non –ANSI Characters, the control buttons on the Host/ Guest system page are disabled.





From System Insight Manager User interface, run Tools--> Virtual Machine, then select the appropriate control operations.


Refer guide:



Hope the information will help.
