Managing Newly Discovered systems

I'd like to set up my auto-discovery to somehow notify me when a new machine is added.  I've done this by two different methods on other products that run a discovery.  Either group all of the newly added machines into a new collection, or send an email when the discovery is complete, listing the machines that were added.  Can this be done with HP SIM v6.2.0?

One way to accomplish this is to create a custom event handler

In SIM go to

Options>automatic event handling>new task

For select Name give it a name like” New System Notification”

For “Select event collection” check “use event attributes that I will specify”

For Select Events use “where event type is Systems Insight Manager Events> Discovered System

For Select system collection use All Systems

For Select actions check Send e-mail

Skip the Select Time filter unless you want a window for this task not to run


Review your custom task and you should be good to go!

Re: Managing Newly Discovered systems

You could simply create an event task to fire when a 'new system is added to the collection'. The collection to target is the 'All Systems'. When a new object is discovered it will obviously be added here and you'll get an alert ;)~
