Restricted viewing to System Homepage from SIM

We have an Operations department that is now using SIM 5.x to monitor servers in our environment. We want them to be able to tell us what is causing a server to have an alert in the Hardware Status (HS) column. We have a few servers that allow them to click on the alert icon and it takes them to the System Homepage without logging in using some kind of access that gives "view" only rights. They can then drill down on the colored links until they can get more detailed information concerning the error. Most of the other servers do require a login at the System Homepage which Ops doesn't have.

How can I get all of my servers to use this "view" only access?

I would like to avoid creating a limited login on each servers Homepage if possible. We never set anything up like this on the servers that are working this way so I'm assuming that its something within SIM itself.

Re: Restricted viewing to System Homepage from SIM

You were right, both of you.

I assigned pts.

Is there a way to automate this process or do I have to login to each server? I have over 200 physical boxes this has to be done to and the amount of work is going to be prohibitive.

If you configure the homepage with those settings in the repository, you should be able to push it out to your servers.

Re: Restricted viewing to System Homepage from SIM

If you go into the Repository, to to the Catalogue tab. There you can choose the option on the left that says "Configure a component." You can then select the System Management Homepage and configure the settings there. Then you can push that component out to your servers.

Re: Restricted viewing to System Homepage from SIM

I wasn't able to find Repository > Catalog in my system. I eventually called the HP support number and someone told me how to do this.

He had me go to Configure > Configure or Repair Agents. Then select the servers followed by entering a login has admin rights to the System Homepage. Take checkmarks off everything except Trust relationship.

This pushes the certificate to each homepage on the servers.
