Re: SIM 5.3.0.0 SMI-S CIMOM not installed

We have had exactly the same problem all week with an HP SIM Consultant on-site. We have not resolved the issue but the problem appears to lie in permissions in the CIM and HPQ namespaces.

Ensure the SIM user account is in the DCOM Administrators group on the server...Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't

HP, can you please get some QA on this?

WBEM on Unix doesn't have the complex permissions that WBEM/WMI has on Windows....

What is the problem? What did you expect to see that you're not seeing?

Re: SIM 5.3.0.0 SMI-S CIMOM not installed

Hi,

We have not been able to configure or subscribe to WBEM events. We can push-install the WBEM/WMI provider without issue and configure the CMS to subscribe to wbem events but test events don't work and we can't identify the systems successfully.

We've made the SIM global account a member of the DCOM admins, and also local admins on the servers

As soon as we swapped to SNMP everything lept into life.

The error:
This system does not have any SMI-S CIMOM installed

comes up on every system.

Re: SIM 5.3.0.0 SMI-S CIMOM not installed

SMI-S (Storage Management Initiative Specification) is for SAN storage management and is an implementation of WBEM. It does not use DCOM as a transport like WMI. SMI-S is transported over HTTPS encoded in XML. For a StorageWorks EVA the SMI-S provider is CommandView EVA. It creates an 'hp-storage-admins' group that the user must authenticate to.

Re: SIM 5.3.0.0 SMI-S CIMOM not installed

Thanks for the reply.

OK - what is required to get WBEM agents working on from a windows-based CMS to a Windows-based Endpoint and how do we test it is working ?

(probably easier to ask this question !)

Thanks
