All c-Class enclosures not populating after discovery

All c-Class enclosures not populating after discovery

I have many c-Class enclosures and none are showing up in SIM under "All c-Class Enclosures" after discovery. The system type shows up as unknown.

Product Number 412133-B21
System Type Unknown
Hardware Description HP Onboard Administrator
OS Name Embedded
OS Type Embedded
Management Protocols SNMP:1.0

I've spent a fair amount of time making sure all the firmware and login credentials are current and correct. I've also perfomed a different installation of SIM on my laptop which is on the same network, and ran the first time setup and it found all the enclosures within the inclusion range entered and listed them correctly under "All c-Class Enclosures"

So I've narrowed this issue down to some config or misconfig issue on this particlular SIM installation.

Anyone have some suggestions on what needs to happen to get these enclosures to show up properly?

Re: All c-Class enclosures not populating after discovery

Below is an enclosure identification log:

David Claypool noticed the desktop agents were showing as being installed.

One red flag in your identification log is the comment "System has the SNMP ProLiant *desktop* agents installed, adding system type." which shouldn't be happening.

Anyone know where it might be pulling this from?

Re: All c-Class enclosures not populating after discovery

hi Jason,

The c-class enclosures will appear properly iff Onboard Administrators (OA) get properly discovered. Please check if you have put in any restricitions on SNMP in the Onboard Administrator SNMP settings. Also, try to enable and disable SNMP once on OA.

Whats the SIM version? and OA firmware?

Re: All c-Class enclosures not populating after discovery

No restrictions on SNMP. I tried disabling and reenabling with no success.

OA 2.32
SIM 5.2 w SP2
HP BladeSystem Integrated Manager 3.4
HP Insight Power Manager 1.40
HP Performance Management Pack 4.7.1
HP Server Migration Pack 2.0.2
HP Virtual Machine Management Pack 2.0.2
Rapid Deployment Pack 3.81

-We have over 10 of these an none show up under Class C enclosures in SIM

-You may have missed this, but I installed a separate copy of SIM 5.2 on my laptop and it discovered and listed the enclosures properly on the first try, so I'm sure its not anything on the OA/Enclosure side.

Does anyone know this process well enough to give me some further troubleshooting steps?

I need someone to break out the Big Guns as this seems to be a code level issue. :-)
