[SIM6.1] Cannot identify EVA4400 Management Module

Hi all,

my SIM 6.1 is unable to identify the EVA4400 Management Module during discovery. Management Module respond to ping from SIM server, and network traffic between them is all allowed (ANY-ANY firewall rule). I am able to identify EVA from the CommandView Windows Server.
XCS version is 09522000, mmp-0001.3000-CR03D8

Please also note I have the problem described here:

but I don't know if thi is the password SIM is using to connect to management module.

Here is the identification log:

********* Significant issues and overall target discovery/identification
Major: The system cannot be identified properly for HP SIM to manage;
unable to get one or more of the following: model, serial number or
unique identifier (UUID). For management processors, verify the
system is running the latest firmware. For Linux based operating
systems, you must have dmidecode installed, enable the
PermitRootLogin and PasswordAuthentication in sshd, and use root
credential. For HP-UX, verify the sign-in credential. For
Windows, check if WMIMapper is configured correctly on the CMS and
verify the sign-in credential.
Critical: The Central Management Server (CMS) cannot communicate with the

* Starting identification process...
* Checking for known running web servers...
* Checking for System Management Homepage and other HP web agents...
Normal: The System Management Homepage is not installed on this system. It
may not be supported.
* Checking for SNMP protocol support on system...
Normal: The system did not respond to SNMP. Verify security settings and
community strings in Options->Security->Credentials->System

Minor: The Central Management System (CMS) cannot communicate with the
CIMOM locally installed on the managed system using the WBEM
protocol, Identification will try to identify Windows systems using
the WMI Mapper as proxy; for Linux and HP-UX systems, check
credentials by going to Options->Security->Credentials->System

is installed.

Re: [SIM6.1] Cannot identify EVA4400 Management Module

SIM discovers the EVAs via the Management Server.
It uses any account that is in the local Storage Admins group on the CV Server.
The account and credentials for that account should be listed under the server specific settings for the CV Server in HPSIM.
Click on the server name, under Tools see the Edit Credentials section and add them there.

Re: [SIM6.1] Cannot identify EVA4400 Management Module

Thank you Rob for your answer. As I said I can correctly identify EVA from the management server. The problem is that the EVA managament module (the one I can access at https://[IP]:2372 and https://[IP]:2373 fot WOCP) is present in my HP SIM inventory but cannot be identified directly pointing to its IP address nor using the management server. Is SIM able to identify this module?
