Loading Insight Manager agents on Suse Linux

Does anyone know the steps of how you go about setting up a SUSE Linux 10 Server to be seen an manage by Insight Manager. We have gotten Insight Manager up in our environment and manage our 2003 servers, but also have SUSE in as well and want to manage them. What agents, etc need to be installed on them to work?

Re: Loading Insight Manager agents on Suse Linux

Thanks for the reply. I found the site that had all agents, I guess what I was looking for is what agents are needed and what aren't and order in which they can be installed.

I personally don't use it, but if you download the full ProLiant Support Pack (PSP) it comes with an install script and will install the appropriate drivers and agents.

Re: Loading Insight Manager agents on Suse Linux

'Managing ProLiant Servers' is a good doc if you want to know the details:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00223285/c00223285.pdf

The OCD way I install it is:
1) put the RPMs
- hp-health
- hp-snmp-agents
- hp-ilo (not needed in SLES11)
from http://hp.com/go/bsc into our repo

2) create /etc/hp-snmp-agents.conf with
# install mode
export CMASILENT="YES"
#Decision to touch existing SNMP file
export CMASKIPSNMPCONFIG="y"
#agent exclusion on startup
export CMAAGENTEXCLUDESTR="cpqriisd cmarackd"

3) edit snmpd.conf with:
dlmod cmaX /usr/lib64/libcmaX64.so
rocommunity
trapcommunity
trapsink

4) yast -i hp-health hp-snmp-agents hp-ilo
5) /etc/init.d/snmpd restart
6) discover the server in SIM

But just installing the PSP is probably better... :)

Re: Loading Insight Manager agents on Suse Linux

We also had the same issue with SLES 10 servers. we installed the proliant support pack.now sim is able to discover the agents.but when we checked in the All systems there are some strange entries under system name.i have attached the screen shot.

Note : we are using sim bundled with ICE Linux
: still license are not added
: So far agents installed in one server.

Appreciate much if you can tell what we missed here?
