Question about iLO and OA certificate

Hi everyone,


I've a question about the certificate, which you can add in iLO under HP SIM SSO and in OA under HP SIM certificate:

Is this only used for Single Sign On from the HP SIM Server to the specific iLO / OA or is it also used for correct monitoring / alerting of hardware status?


I'm wondering if we don't need to distribute a new HP SIM certificate on all 1000+ devices, if it is only for SSO, since there's no one in our company which will need SSO from HP SIM Server to an iLO / OA...


That would save a lot of work!


Thanks and regards,

Re: Question about iLO and OA certificate

Yes, the SIM cert import is essentially for SSO. i have never bothered distributing this cert as instead, the scripts I use to deploy my servers add a generic admin account to all iLOs in my enterprise so I can use this one accoutn manage them. We also don't bother with AD integration and just use this local account.

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