Hardware inventory on Dell servers with WMI : how to ?

Hello.

This is my problem : I have some Dell servers to monitor and I want to get hardware informations. I have installed and configured the SNMP service on the Dell servers, installed the WMI services but I don't have HW informations in SIM other than the NICs and the OS version.
Using the "How to manage non-HP x86 Windows servers with HP SIM" document, I have installed the WMI mapper service on the target server, even if I was not sure that is was necessary. No change.
The HP document is showing the HW informations of a Dell server and it is much more detailled than what I can see on my CMS.
I have updated the WBEM information in the property page of this server to use an admin account but no change too.
What am I missing ?
Thank you.

Hi Olivier,

You mentioned that you have checked the "How to manage non-HP x86 Windows servers with HP SIM" document to configure the settings. So i assume that all the settings are correct and fine.

I had the same issue wich came up few months ago...

I guess you might have gone through this:

Try the Scriptomatic tool to retreive the information. it is available for download from:

Is this the same thing we are looking for?


ALL THE BEST !!!!

Thanks a lot.

After installing the WMI mapper on the target server, HW datas are now collected. They are not as detailled as in the Dell Console but are enough for a basic reporting.
