HP ProCurve manager

I've just installed HP ProCurve Manager and I don't have any informations (in device syslog or events) about switch although some of them have a critical status.

Furthermore, I throwed the discovery on my network and many of my switchs now hage got the critical status .

I wait your answers with impacience. Thanks

Re: HP ProCurve manager

I would like that PCM inform me about the switchs events first because in the windows device syslog and events I have anything.

Re: HP ProCurve manager

willinfo : make sure the windows box where PCM server is running, has no other application occupying the port 162.
You can do a netstat to confirm this. OR you could better use the tool "Currports" : www.nirsoft.net/utils/cports.html.

PCM needs this port to act as a SNMP trap receiver - and thus would be able to get the events from the switches.

If you find some other process(other than javaw.exe, which belongs to PCM) is using port 162,(One of the common culprit is "Windows SNMP Trap Receiver") then kill that process and restart PCM.

let me know if that helped.

Re: HP ProCurve manager

Good morning and thanks for all your answers ! I practised the netstat on my computer but I don't find any port 162.
In the adminitrator guide of PCM, it's written that :

" To enable the Device Syslog function in PCM, you need to set the PCM server as the Syslog server. "

Furthemore, many switchs of my network are out because I have launched the discovery.

Thanks for your help.

Re: HP ProCurve manager

I have just looked the discovery settings and on the seed device, I have the IP of my network 192.168.1.0 .

It's possible that was the consequences of my problem => the fact that many of my switches are red (critical status) when I launch the discovery ? I have to put a seed device like 192.168.1.1 ?
