Sun solaris support

Sun solaris support

Has anyone integrated SUN Solaris monitoring into HP SIM environment? We are monitoring all Wintel & HP-UX servers using SIM 5.0, but there is a need to monitor SUN servers as well. Given large co-existence of HP-UX and SUN servers, I am wondering if there are any workarounds to integrate SUN monitoring by HP SIM?

Re: Sun solaris support

You can monitor at a basic level and get some information from snmp.
I believe this can be further enhanced using wbem and I believe there is a whitepaper on that around somewhere. I couldn't get the Solaris boys here interested in following that up.

You will also need to add the appropriate categories into HPSIM using the Options -> Manage System Types. You'll need snmp installed and configured on the Solaris servers in order for this to work.

Re: Sun solaris support

For some reason (maybe Sun's compatibility) we haven't had much luck talking to Sun's WBEM Services for Solaris on SPARC...

Re: Sun solaris support


I wanted to ask if anyone has any success since the last reply?

I just tried to integrate HP SIM onto our two solaris 10 11/06 DL385G2. We install it on all our windows and linux systems without any issues. However, am I correct in thinking that the coding for solaris has little development?

I can get it to install, but the only info I see is basic "system - system info" (hostname, o/s, ip addresses). No other useful details. Rather pointless imo. Better to install nagios.

Also, the same "settings - security - trusted management servers" certificate we use on our other systems fails to be recognised by the solaris HP SIM. Anyone knows why?

thanks for reading this.

Re: Sun solaris support

Fin, the previous posts were regarding Solaris on SPARC, not Solaris on ProLiant. You should be using the HP-provided agents.

I have installed all that was asked, read the pdfs, but still cannot get the same level of detail as for the windows/linux installations. Do you have any suggestions?

Please write down the step for me.
My environment is HPSIM 5.2 on HP-UX (CMS Server) and 2 SUNs Server with Solaris 10 x86 on HP-BL460c.
