Simple alert for HW failures?

Hello,

Where can I find a simply step-by-step procedure to help me setup email alerting for hard drive failures on my Proliants? This seems to be a most basic task, and I'm struggle with it.

Re: Simple alert for HW failures?

Understanding the process may help.
The HP Agents installed on each client monitor the health of that client. If they detect an issue then they send an SNMP Trap to the HP SIM Server.
The HPSIM Server uses the Event Handler process to generate an E-Mail.

So:
SNMP - Trap Destinations need to be set.
HP SIM needs the E-Mail Server added and and Event Handler Task added.

Also www.hp.com/go/hpsim - follow the link for the info (or reference) library and read up
