HP SIM Noob

Hi All,

 

I'm new to installing and utilizing SIM ... Have recently installed 6.3 on a VM and am running discovery seeing about 20 hosts appearing.... Were 150 plus HP products on our network and recently set up two servers where i installed PSP on them post windows install.... I have a discovery set up to run every day and thus far they arent appearing .... i just recently read that you must install Proliant Support Pack to get them to appear , now apparantly there is more to this than just that .... What all needs to happen for an HP Server to appear in SIM ?

 

 

Thanks ... Phil

Re: HP SIM Noob

To setup a server to report to SIM using SNMP, do the following:

 

  1. Install the latest PSP from the HP website for that hardware model
  2. Configure at least 1 read only community string on the agents to match that at the CMS
  3. COnfigure the trap location and community string to point at the CM
  4. Discover the device in SIM
