View Lefthand P4300 in HP SIM

Hye,

I try to manage my two node Lefthand P4300 in HP SIM 5.3 sp1.
the SNMP work and the 2 node was discovered as the Linux System . What's going Wrong.
Did i've to register the MIB of the Lefthand in HP SIM. And in this case, i have found the file.mib but not the .cfg.

Thanks.

MIBs are not used in the Discovery identification process, they're used when snmp traps are received from the device to describe the condition being reported.

To create the cfg file you use the mcompile command followed by the mxmib command to load the cfg file into HP SIM.

To identify a device that's not included as standard you need to go to Options->Manage System Types and create a New Device.

Hye,

Thanks for your answer.
when i try to compile the mib file i get a msg:
C:\Program Files\HP\Insight C:\Program Files\HP\Insight Software\bin>mcompile -d "C:\Program Files\LeftHandNetworks\UI\mibs" lefthand-networks-global-reg-mib.mib

Compiling lefthand-networks-global-reg-mib.mib


Unable to identify the import file for Module name : SNMPv2-SMI
Do you want to provide the import File name? (Y/N) :

I try with "Y" and provide the name of a file call "snmpv2-smi.txt" which is in the same directory as the .mib file.
then i get the following msg:
Processing import file: snmpv2-smi.txt
Line: 55: Error defining object: expected a label, found reserved symbol MODULE-
IDENTITY
Mib Compilation completed successfully


If I go thought the .cfg generated file it's seems very poor compare to other .cfg file in the mib directory of HP SIM.

"lefthand-networks-global-reg-mib.cfg"

#-MIBFILE: lefthand-networks-global-reg-mib.mib

Re: View Lefthand P4300 in HP SIM

I had the same issue at first....

Copy only the MIB files from lefthand to \program files\hp\systems insight manager\mibs\

LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-GLOBAL-REG-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-CLUSTERING-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-DNS-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-INFO-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-NETWORK-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-NOTIFICATION-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-NTP-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-SECURITY-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-STATUS-MIB.mib
LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-STORAGE-MIB.mib

Run the following command to create the import file (CFG)
mcompile LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-NOTIFICATION-MIB.mib

You should see it import 5 different MIB files

mxmib -a LEFTHAND-NETWORKS-NSM-NOTIFICATION-MIB.cfg

This is the only MIB you need to import.. All other MIBs are included in the notification mib.

In SIM, go to options, Events, SNMP Trap Settings.. You should see the LeftHand notification was added with the details.
