SIM 5.1 SP1 and DL580 G5


SIM 5.1 SP1 and DL580 G5


I have successfully identifued a number of DL380 G5 and DL365 G1 servers in SIM 5.1. They all show the correct Product Name and OS Name. I have one DL580 G5 running RedHat 3.8 that will not Identify and change its Product Name from Linux Server to Proliant DL580 G5. Its iLO is identified separately as a DL580 G5, but the iLO and server lines willnot come together. For all other servers, solving this problem was a matter of fixing snmp and making sure hpasm was running. Any ideas? Here is the output of Identify:

Re: SIM 5.1 SP1 and DL580 G5

Well i am more a windows specialiste,but when we get this kinds of error it usally a problem with the HP insight agent not working correctly.


Re: SIM 5.1 SP1 and DL580 G5


Thank you. Can you be more specific about "not working correctly"? Here is the output of "service hpasm status":

I see that a few modules are stopped. I just ran "service hpasm restart". hpasmxld, cmascsid and cmasasd just won't start. It is probably the hpasmxld. I will look into that.
