Hi,

Re: hp sim 7.3 not working

Hello Christian,

Please have a look in the System Insight Manager under the folder logs and find the mxdomainmgr.log file to see if there are errors, most of the time problems are database related. You can also log for the mxdomainmgr exe file in the task manager. If the process keeps growing and then restarts you might have a database problem. But as i said you'll see that in the logfile. Look at the top part, the first 2 pages should give enough info. If needed you can post that part of the log if you need more hints.

Kind regards,

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

 

I really don't know what to look for, I have attached the log file.  The mxdomainmgr is using 30% of the cpu and 1.3gb of ram, look excessif.

Re: hp sim 7.3 not working

Hello Christian,

 

The SQL connection works but perhaps it's corrupt, not that i can see a DBa error. You could run the following command on the SIm server : MXCONFIGREPO -c

 

This checks the database consistency. If you see errors you can use the fix command :

 

To correct HP SIM database corruption, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop the HP SIM service.
  2. Run the Central Management Server (CMS) command MXCONFIGREPO -f.
  3. Restart the HP SIM service.

Was this a clean install or an upgrade over a 7.2 or earlier version ?

 

Kind regards,

 

Andrew

Re: hp sim 7.3 not working

Hello Christian,

Like i typed i don't see an error in the log but it can't hurt to run it any way. If that does not work you can reinstall Sim with a new database and then change the config files to point to the old database. If you search for the new database name and replace the name with the old one that should work. If your SIM server is a virtual i would first make a snapshot or if it's physical break the mirror that way you have a back-up in case things break. But then that is already the case.

Kind regards,

Andrew

Re: hp sim 7.3 not working

Hello Christian,

You first have to uninstall the Hp System Insight Manager, the rest can be left on the server. When you reinstall the software, the setup will create a new database, this database is not needed when you edited your config files to point to your old database. Only problem could be that you have to recreatie your trusts. If you need the namens of the files you need to edit just reply to this post, but that info can easily found in this forum....
Did you look if the domainmgr.exe grows and then stays at a certain memorystick usage ? As a last resort did you try Firefox to try and connect the the https://simserver:50000

Good luck !

Kind regards,

Andrew

Re: hp sim 7.3 not working

Hello again,

 

Strange, i'dd think SIM is still running, but you just can't access it. I bet the mx log shows sheduled jobs are still running. If you tried with more than one browser and you still can't connect to the Sim webinterface i would make an export for the objects in Sim and start over. Just one more question, how big is your database?

 

If you use mxnode -ln > c:\nodes.txt you can backup the node in SIM. If that works you have proven that the database is still accessable.

 

Kind regards,

 

Andrew
