SIM & IBM Servers with IBM Director 5.2

Hello Again.
After reading a few threads on this subject and loading the IBM Director Agent v5.2 on one of my IBM servers.

All I can see if I run a data collection report is the following.

Could someone tell me if I should be seeing more info, such as volume space. All I seem to have gained is NIC card info.

Any help much appreciated.
Mark.

Anyone out there had any success with this?

HP SIM doesn't use the Director agent for data collection; rather, it uses WMI. Check out the whitepaper, "How to manage non-HP servers with HP SIM" from http://www.hp.com/go/hpsim --> Information Library. I've also attached a presentation I've delivered on the topic. Look particularly at "This is what success looks like..."

Many Thanks David,

Quick question though.
Page 23
Creat a collection called 'Protocols' and customize the fields it displays.....etc

How do you get to this option as I can't find any options which display "Management Protocol".

I've tried:
Options / Identify Systems
Options / Data Collection
Reports / New Report

No where can I find "Management Protocol" to filter on.

Merry Christmas !!!
Mark.
