VM-ESX-Server reported minor status without errors

hello,

we have several esx-servers reporting a minor hw-status. checking out the system management homepage everything is ok, no failures are shown.

SIM: 5.0SP4
ESX: Release 2.4.9-vmnix2
Agents: 7.40

snmp-settings are ok.

Any help is welcome.

Re: VM-ESX-Server reported minor status without errors

We have the same issue the ESX servers show minor in SIM, but when we link out (the trust works) to the servers, everything on the SMH is green:

SIM 5.0 SP3
ESX 2.5.3
Agents 7.41

Install script from one of our ESX Servers:

HP Advanced Server Management configuration:

Welcome to the hp System Health Application and Insight Management Agent(hpasm)
package installation. This package contains the hp Advanced Server Management
Application(hpasmd) and hp's SNMP agents. This package is intended to only
function on hp servers with either the ProLiant ASM (0x0E11A0F2) ASIC or the
ProLiant iLO Advanced Server Management (0x0E11B203) ASIC.

==============================================================================
NOTE: Your SNMP stack can load the 32-bit hp ProLiant Management Extension.
Problems may result from using your distribution's SNMP stack.
See hp Documentation (HOWTO, agent manual) for more details.
==============================================================================
Press any key to continue...

The startup scripts in this package also control the loading of modules in
this and other hp management packages(i.e. hprsm). Some of those management
modules are distributed under a non-GPL license. When these non-GPLed modules
are loaded the kernel's tainted flag (see /proc/sys/kernel/tainted) may be
set. If you choose not to load them, some management functionality will be lost.


Do you want to load the hp modules even though they may "taint"
your kernel? (Blank is y) y

This package contains data gathering agents that provide data to clients via
SNMP. This SNMP data may be used by other hp management software. If you
choose not to start these agents that data may not be provided. Answer 'y'
to this question to start the base set of agents. You will be prompted for
the more specialized Storage and Performance agents.

Agent Startup Policy
Do you require SNMP agents (y/n) ? (Blank is y): y

Storage Agent Startup Policy
Do you require Storage Agent support (y/n) ? (Blank is y): y

Performance Agent Startup Policy
Do you require performance agent support (y/n) ? (Blank is y): n

You will now be asked a series of SNMP configuration questions. How you answer
these question will affect the way SNMP behaves. Configuring SNMP could have
security implications on your system. If you are not sure how to answer a
question, you can abort by pressing and no changes will be made to
your SNMP configuration.
