SNMP or Webem

I have to monitor a Win 2003 SP2 server running on a desktop with no SNMP service installed or HP WMI agents so my SIM 6.01 server cant detect it after a discovery for obvious reasons.

Since this is a HP desktop and not going to run any form of PSP would I be best installing SNMP and configuring it to send traps to the SIM server or is there a WMI package I can install so I can use WEBEM instead?

Does this make sense?

Thanks

Since you want to discover desktop, it is better to install SNMP.

Hi Rosco,

Use repair agent option from task menu and select SNMP or WEBEM. this will install and configure the required components on client machines automatically.

Thanks,

Thanks for the information. I need to get SNMP installed on all the servers that dont have it first. Where's that i386 folder when you need it?

When you say it will configure the client, I wasnt aware the repair function could add the required trap settings, is this so?

Re: SNMP or Webem

that's right. repair agent task works like a charm.

It will first check and install the missing components/agent including SNMP or WEBEM

If you are just taking SNMP, it will install the SNMP first then it will configure the SNMP trap settings on the client machine as per HP SIM SNMP configuration.

this will also ensure that client on which repair task is run has all the required service running (e.g. SNMP service)

thanks,

SNMP comes with windows, you need windows disk that actually contains i386 folder.
