Servers listed as Unknown (X3800 NAS)

Hey everyone!

I hope someone can help! We have purchased about 6 of the X3800 NAS Servers and have built them using the System Recovery 1.3 DVD. I have configured the Management Agents, SMH and VCAgent correctly as we normally would and everything is running the latest versions. e.g. 8.6 Management Agents.

Sadly I cant get any of the Servers to register correctly on HP SIM (Version 6.2). If I disable my discovery filter or tick Unknown in System Types then it will be discovered but reported as Unknown system type in SIM.

The report below is from a System Identification task. It seems to be having problems detecting the system type.

Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations???

********* Significant issues and overall target discovery/identification
status:
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
sign-in 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.

Re: Servers listed as Unknown (X3800 NAS)

Update:

Interestingly I deleted an old X3800 and that now doesnt detect properly either so this is obviously a change caused by the upgrade to 6.2 of SIM. I have created a new System Type called "HP X3800 Network Storage Gateway" with the System Object Identifier as "1.3.6.1.4.1.311.1.1.3.1.2" and assigned as a Server. It detects fine now except the errors below:

Use 'Manage Communications' to diagnose.
