HP SIM 7.3 & c7000 Blade Enclosures

Hello,

 

I am currently setting up an HP SIM 7.3 server. I have 4x c7000 enclosures which each discover fine on their one and list all the blades, iLOs and Virtual Connects no problems. The problem I am having is when I discover all 4 of them, HP SIM is replacing enclosure 1 & 3 which each other depending on which the last one was to be discovered.

 

At the minute I have enclosures 2, 3 & 4 present within HP SIM but if I was to run a discovery on enclosure 1, enclosure 3 would disapear and I would be left with 1, 2 & 4 in HP SIM. If I was then to run a discover on enclose 3, enclosure 1 would disapear leaving me back with 2, 3 & 4. Screenshot attached.

 

It's like HP SIM is thinking they are the same system for some reason, what could be causing this?

 

Thanks

 

Liam

I think I have found the issue, the 2 enclosures seem to both have the same UUID.

 

Why would that be?

Worked it out. The UUID's were the same becuase the serial numbers were also the same.

 

The reason for this is becuase the OA from enclosure 3 used to be in enclosure 1 (we had some failures so moved things about) and the serial number was not updated to reflect the new enclosure it was in.

 

The process to do this is here which might help others.
