Re: What is the purpose of SIM on Integrity VM

You must not install SIM on the host - SIM is not supported on the vmhost system.

Hope this helps!

host

No, not allowed!

Best is to install on a dedicated server. With SIM you can monitor and manage your whole environment.

Re: What is the purpose of SIM on Integrity VM

You are correct, but SIM installed on windows has several features only available there.

Hope this helps!

Re: What is the purpose of SIM on Integrity VM

You could actually take the time to read the manuals/Releae Notes etc., as they would give loads of answers

Re: What is the purpose of SIM on Integrity VM

On the client side there are a series of agents and the SMH. These can be installed as part of a proliant Support Pack, available for a variety of OSes.
There's a degree of configuration, snmp settings and trust relationships, but HP SIM has the ability to replicate a lot of settings, so the amount of work is limited.

The documentation is very good, see www.hp.com/go/hpsim and follow the link to the reference library. It's worth downloading the technical reference guide.

HPSIM can also identify and process snmp traps from non-server devices, e.g. HP switches and SANs.
