Management Agent Reporting

Hi, I'm new to HP SIM.

I've installed the HP Management packs onto all my servers and have installed HP SIM on a local server.

Sometimes HP SIM flags events as critical or major that I’d prefer to have as information or warning. For example, it flags an ILO that is not configured as Major, i'd rather have it as informational. I know i can just remove the ILO agent, but I’d rather not.

What i really want is for all hardware faults to be logged as critical.

Is there a way i can customize this?

What you want is to have the possibility to edit a mib.

In HP SIM go to options/Events/Snmp trap Settings and find to the mib you would like to modify, then modify the severity according to your need.
The hardest part will be to find which mib to edit...

Re: Management Agent Reporting

The caution is that MIBs get updated, so you will have to edit them again each time new MIBs get published.

You'd be better customizing Action on Events to deal with a problem the way you want to, such as automatically clearing things like an iLO not configured and sending a alert on any hardware fault.

Re: Management Agent Reporting

Thanks Fred,

I'm trying to understand the relationship between the information on the system management homepage on the managed system and the HP SIM web console on the central managment system.

As you've said, the HP SIM mibs can be configured however is that going to have any effect on the results of the system managemnt page of the manged system?

Thanks again,
