HP SIM Installation

Hi there,

I have problems to install HP SIM on a HP Proliant DL380 G7 with Windows 2008 R2 Standard.

The installation starts, the dialog database configuration appears. I filled out all the required field, proceed with next, The popup windows "Validating database access" appears for a short period, and thatßs it then.

In the next window tells me, that it can`t display the web page.

The credentials for the SQL database are correct. If i make a typo on purpose, then it tells me this.


Any idea?

Please check the version of your Internet Explorer on your server. I assume it is IE9. There is a known issue with it.


If this is the case, U can install IE9 via Server Manager. You go back automatically to IE8.


After that re-try the installation. It will work then...

Yes the solution is by going back to IE 8
