HP SIM - lost since upgrade - help

I have just upgraded from Insight Mgr v7 to SIM v5. I'm completely lost.

There are two urgent things I could do with a pointer on ...

1) how do I set up a daily email to send me the hardware status of all my servers ?

2) SIM identifies two of my servers a "desktops" - how do I resolve this ?

Re: HP SIM - lost since upgrade - help

Was this done from Insight Mgr v7 to SIM v4.2 and then upgraded to SIM v5? As this is the rcommended steps by HP.

for

1) OPTIONS->EVENTS->AUTOMATIC EVENT HANDLING -> EMAIL SETTINGS

2) Check SNMP settings and if they are ok you could also change settings for those servers by clicking on the server and choosing TOOLS & LINKS TAB -> EDIT SYSTEM PROPERTY LINK and then in system type choose SERVER.
Before clicking on OK make sure the checkbox
Prevent the Discovery... is selected.

Re: HP SIM - lost since upgrade - help

thanks for the help, point2 now sorted but I may not have made myself clear ref point1.

I used to have, and would like again, an email every morning that gives me a summary of the hardware status of my servers. I don't particularly want this as a response to an event more as a scheduled task/report.

Although we were running IM7 I abandoned that installation and installed HP SIM v5 as a clean install.

Hi,
That should be possible, under the reports menu you should be able to choose to create a new report and then possibly send that as email to your account. Havent done this personally but think it is doable.
