HPUX and SIM

Hello,

 

I have several HPUX boxes and SIM 6.0, Im monitoring the boxes using the root credential and it works fine, have tried with a new user account created just for SIM but it does not work.

I can't keep the root account because every 15 days the pass is changed so it becomes annoying to re-configure SIM every time.

 

What other options beside using the root account do I have to Fully monitor a HPUX machine on HP SIM?

 

Thanks in advanced

Re: HPUX and SIM

Hi,

this would be the official recommended settings:

 

cimconfig -s sslClientVerificationMode=disabled -p
cimconfig -s enableSubscriptionsForNonprivilegedUsers=true -p
cimconfig -s shutdownTimeout=30 -p
cimconfig -s authorizedUserGroups= -p
cimconfig -s enableRemotePrivilegedUserAccess=true -p
cimconfig -s enableHttpsConnection=true -p
cimconfig -s enableNamespaceAuthorization=true -p
cimconfig -s enableHttpConnection=false -p

Restart the cimserver after it. 


Create a non priviledged user and authorize him 

 

cimauth -a -u WBEM_USER_NAME -n root/cimv2 -R -W
cimauth -a -u WBEM_USER_NAME -n root/PG_InterOp -R -W
cimauth -a -u WBEM_USER_NAME -n root/PG_Internal -R -W
cimauth -a -u WBEM_USER_NAME -n root/cimv2/npar -R -W
cimauth -a -u WBEM_USER_NAME -n root/cimv2/vpar -R -W

 

'cimauth -l' to verify the user

 

add the user/credentials as system credentials for wbem on all systems

 

hth,
