Status Box Indicators are blue

Why are the status box indicators blue?
The SNMP traps (read-only) are configured the same on all servers. We have a range of W2k3 and w2k servers which are not reporting information on HP SIM.
Some servers are reporting the correct information whilst other servers report System Model: NULL
System Status: Unknown
and no further info on System boards etc etc
it does not matter whether I check these remotely or locally

There seems to be consistency in which servers report correctly or not.

Unknown ususally means that both HP SIM and the client can talk snmp but there is probably a communication issue (Wrong community strings for instance.)
-Check the snmp configuration on the client side or use the configure and repair feature from HP SIM under the the configure menu to fix it.
It should help.

Re: Status Box Indicators are blue

It was my understanding that you also need a write community string in SNMP so the information gets back to the SIMS server.

The read only string communicates on the local server.
