Operations Manager failed to run a WMI query for WMI events (HP StoreVirtual P4500)Open in a New Window

Hi everyone,

I've got 2x HP P4500 Gen2 StoreVirtual Nodes in a cluster and am using SCOM 2012 R2 CU9 and HP Storage Management Pack v4.2.1 to monitor.

However Operations Manager is receiving hundreds of repeat counts:

HPEnterpriseStorageLeftHandMP Operations Manager failed to run a WMI query for WMI events
Module was unable to execute the notification query.
Error: 0x80041004
Details: Provider failure
One or more workflows were affected by this. 
Workflow name: HPEnterpriseStorageLeftHandMP.BackplaneTrap.Catcher.Rule
Workflow name: HPEnterpriseStorageLeftHandMP.FANTrap.Catcher.Rule
Instance name: HP StoreVirtual SNMP Trap Catcher Rule
Instance ID: {}

P4500 SAN cluster is running software version
I have installed and Configured the HP Storage Management Pack v4.2.1
Enabled the HP SNMP object discoveries in Operations Manger 2012 R2 CU9
Configuring SNMP traps via CMC

There are about 33 HP StoreVirtual SNMP Trap Catcher Rules

How can they ever run WMI scripts given the P4500 Gen2's are Linux based?




HP MSA Storage Management Pack for System Center v4.2.1Open in a New Window

I am using the HP MSA Storage Management for System Center v I am having a problem with the HP MSA Storage Discovery rule. The discovery script times out after 5 minutes. I see an event id of 21402, with the following information:

Event ID:      21402

Task Category: None

Level:         Warning

Keywords:      Classic

User:          N/A


Forced to terminate the following process started at 8:03:59 PM because it ran past the configured timeout 300 seconds.

 Command executed:     "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\HPEnterpriseStorageDiscovery.exe"

This discovery script has a timeout value of 300 seconds. Is there a way to override this, or are there other troubleshooting tips you can share? 

We have a total of 41 MSAs discovered and still need to add several more.


Which SCOM integration solution should we be using?Open in a New Window

I need to get SCOM 2012 R2 monitoring ProLiant BL460c Gen9 blades in a C7000 blade chassis.

There are a bewildering and contradictory number of options and recommendations for how to have SCOM monitor the status of an HP Chassis.


Oneview is not available, HP SIM is, but ideally we’d have SCOM talking directly to the hardware, or at least not using OneVIew or SIM.


Which is the appropriate tool to do that?



  1. The HP BladeSystem Management Pack?
  2. The HP SCOM Integration kit that is a part of the “HP OneView for Microsoft System Center 7.6” download?
  3. Something else entirely?



Admion, I posted the same question over her and was poined tot hs forum. That topic can be deleted and my apologies for

HP SCCM 2012 Integratio​n Kit and the proliant generations?Open in a New Window



How to find the HP SCCM 2012 Integratio​n Kit version and the proliant generations?


I downloaded the HP OneView for Microsoft System Center 7.6 is that only for Proliant gen 9?


Is BIOS, ILO and disk diskconfiguration done with the "HP Scripting Tools for Windows PowerShell", and tolls for this is removed from the HP OneView for Microsoft System Center 7.6?




Free vs Paid functionalityOpen in a New Window



I'm looking for clarification of what functionality is provided free vs what requires an Insight Control/OneView license.


According to an old post on here (2009 - it is advised that "HP delivers the ProLiant Server Management Pack, BladeSystem Management Pack, and the HP Server Updates Catalog for Configuration Manager 2007 for free. Support is through email".




"We will continue to provide the ProLiant Server Management Pack, BladeSystem Management Pack, and the HP Server Updates Catalog for Configuration Manager 2007 for free. Support is only through email and a 24x7 service is not provided".


From the HP ProLiant Server Management Pack (v 1.x & 2.2) for Microsoft System Center User Guide:
If you purchased HP Insight Control for Microsoft System Center as part of an HP Insight Control license, you are entitled to 24 x 7 HP Software Technical Support and Update Service. See the information below on how to register and use this service.
If you did not purchase licenses for HP Insight Control, then you may receive technical assistance via e-mail at or from the HP Service Support Center forum at




From the HP SCOM Integration Kit (v 3.1) User Guide:
License: This kit, included with HP OneView for Microsoft System Center, is licensed as part of HP OneView
Advanced or HP Insight Control.


So I'm looking for clarity on whether the kit needs a license, but the 3 above mentioned management packs are still free to use but without support? Since the blade management pack now requires a DMS, is this also included for use without 24hr support?

HP SCOM Agentless Server state not resetting.Open in a New Window

I've set up the HP ProLiant Agentless Management Pack (v 3.2) for Microsoft System Center in an instance of SCOM 2012. I've added a couple of HP DL320e servers as agentless servers with the HP ProLiant Agentless Management Service. I successfully get alerts through to SCOM via iLO and the Device Monitoring Service e.g. for a NIC failure and the health monitor in SCOM for the agentless device goes red.

The problem I have is that the health monitor in SCOM does not return to green after the NIC connection is restored. Looking at the definition, the monitor should run every 15 minutes. I've tried leaving it overnight and it still doesn't go green. This is the case whether or not I close the alert.
Is it supposed to reset by itself. If it is, any idea why not?

Also, the alerts only appear in the top level "Active Alerts" folder, not within the Active Alerts folders within the management packs. Is this to be expected?

SCOM does not discover Virtual HP SIM ServerOpen in a New Window

Hi, We have imported the latest versions of the HP Management Packs for SCOM. The HP ProLiant Management Pack has a discovery that is supposed to discovery HP SIM servers. However, it does not discovery an HP SIM server if it is a virtual server. I checked the discovery, and I noticed that the the HP SIM server discovery is targeted to "HP ProLiant Server." However, the HP ProLiant Server discovery looks for a model of "ProLiant", which a virtual server will not have. Therefore, the HP SIM discovery never kicks off for that server. is anyone else running a virtual HP SIM server? Have you ran into the issue, or found a way to resolve it?


Monitor HP Proliant DL380 Gen8 Servers with Microsoft SCOM 2012 R2 - AgentlessOpen in a New Window

Hi @all


I would like to Monitor our HP Proliant DL380Gen8 Servers running VMWare ESXi 5.x with Microsoft SCOM 2012 R2 and therefore I installed the HP DMS and DMC on a dedicated Win2012R2 Server and added the Proliants to the DMS. I also imported the HP Proliant Management Pack and the HP Agentless Management Pack to Microsoft SCOM (with all dependend MP´s)

Now I tried to test a hardware failure (unplug a power supply etc..) .. I can see in the SCOM Monitoring Pane - HP System - HP Agentless Servers - Server State a Warning at "Power Supplies" at the Server where i unplugged a Power Supply, but SCOM does not generate an Alert for this Event.


so I checked the MP Settings in SCOM  Authoring pane and noticed, that almost everywhere in the MP (HP Proliant Servers Base) the "Generate Alert" is set to False. Then I created an override MP  "HP Prolaint Servers Base - Overrides"  and set the "Generate Alert" on "Availability - HP ProLiant Power Supplies to HP ProLiant Server Health Rollup Monitor" to true.


then I simulated the hardware failure with unplugging a power supply again ... it took almost half an hour, then the server switched to warning in the Monitoring pane again, but no Alert was generated! (same situation as before the MP overrides)


what did I wrong? .. what do I have to perform to enable Alerting of the Agentless Management Pack?


thanks for any help

while reading the notes for the 7.3.1 version many times we are now unsure if sccm 2012 r2 is supported or not by 7.3.1.


can anybody clarify if this is supported or not?


thank´s a lot for your help!
