How to configure WBEM on linux (5.x) or (6.x)



I tried to install the WBEM on RHEL 5.x server, I was able to install the packages






I downloaded the package from the below link.


After the installation, I restarted tod-pegasus, and the necessary agents. But the discovery failed.


Major:    The system cannot be identified properly for HP SIM to manage;
          unable to get one or more of the following: model, serial number or
          unique identifier (UUID). For management processors, verify the
          system is running the latest firmware. For Linux based operating
          systems, you must have dmidecode installed, enable the
          PermitRootLogin and PasswordAuthentication in sshd, and use root
          sign-in credential. For HP-UX, verify the sign-in credential. For
          Windows, check if WMIMapper is configured correctly on the CMS and
          verify the sign-in credential.
Critical: HP SIM cannot communicate with the SNMP service on the system(s).



The discovery process is done via a user account with sudo priv to run the dmidecode command. The user is able to run the command properly.


Any advise please?
