Re: sim installing on vmware

I thought I read somewhere with version 5.1 that is is now fully supported as long as the Virtual hardware specs match what is required for SIM.

However, I did try it and it is slower than, well - you know what.

But I was also trying SQL 2005 at the same time and I have always used SQL 2000 with my SIM installations. So it could have been a combo of SIM 5.1, SQL 2005, and VM.

I will try to track down the exact documentation that states it is supported.

Re: sim installing on vmware

NOTE: HP SIM 5.1 can run on a Windows Virtual Machine (VM) provided the following requirements are met. The VM must be hosted on an ESX 3.0.1 or later server and the VM configuration must meet HP SIM hardware requirements and the CPU and Memory resources allocated to this VM must be always available to this VM (by reserving CPU and Memory resources).

Re: sim installing on vmware

We run HPSIM as a vm in ESX3.01, with remote MSSQL 2005.

This runs fine, just a small environment with around 60 servers, 200 devices and EVA SAN monitored.
