ILO4 agentless >> Test Trap to HP SIM

Hi.

 

I have configured my first G8 Server. I have used agentless monitoring for my Management Interface.

The HP SIM could discover the Management Processor correctly.

But when i tried to send a Test Trap from the ILO Interface, the HP SIM does not generate an Email.

I checked the connections with wireshark. The SIM is receiving the Trap, but does not forward it.

 

********* Significant issues and overall target discovery/identification 
          status: 
Normal:   SIM identification cannot get the logical serial number and UUID 
          from the iLO XML data. This is expected when a server blade has no 
          profile assigned. It may also be caused by an iLO or VC firmware 
          mismatch. 
Normal:   The system has valid hardware data (model, serial number, and 
          unique identifier) and has been identified properly for SIM to 
          manage. 
Critical: HP SIM cannot communicate with the SNMP service on the system(s).

Re: ILO4 agentless >> Test Trap to HP SIM

We had the same problem - SIM received the event, but was not sending an email, even though it marked the event "Cleared," the way it's supposed to in our event task.

 

We use "Collections" of servers and devices, based on location. Our new (first) DL380 Gen8 server is a member of our collection, with the ILO shown, as always, as a subsystem "Management Processor." I had to add the ILO separately to our collection so that it is listed in our event task as a separate device. The task will apparently not send an email unless the device is individually shown in the list.

 

This seems too simple a solution, but maybe it will help some.

Re: ILO4 agentless >> Test Trap to HP SIM

What do you mean by 'Does not forward it'? You mean does not e-mail you or otherwise laert you? What severity is the trap coming in with? If it's coming in at info level you'll have to setup your trap alerts to alert on info.

If my post was helpful please award me Kudos! or Points :)

Re: ILO4 agentless >> Test Trap to HP SIM

 

We have tried with following, and received "Test Trap" in HP SIM.

 

We have discovered Management processor (ILO 4) correctly in HP SIM,

 

Login into ILO4,

Select Administration --> Management --> Check Community String “Public“ and  à SNMP Alert Destination has been Added as HP SIM server IP Address,

 

Send Test Trap from ILO4

Go to HP SIM --> Select All Events --> Verify Test trap is arrived

OR

Search the server with ILO 4 IP address --> Click on Events and verify “Test Trap” is arrived.

Re: ILO4 agentless >> Test Trap to HP SIM

Had same issue - your idea worked for me thanks akbarua

 

Login into ILO4 of target server
Select Administration --> Management
Enter the string 'public' next to Read Community, ensuring that 'public' exists as a trap on the SIM server (see SNMP Service on SIM server)

 

Re-run Discovery task of target server

 

Thanks
