Can any one provied me the download link for HP WEBES.
Also is this licenesed version?
Can anyone tell me if its possible to get HP Insight Mansger to send SMS alerts directly from the server e.g. without using an SMS gateway ?
(background - we've had issues with the reliability of the email platform, meaning that SMS alerts are sometimes not sent. So I'm wondering if we can eliminate the reliance on the email platfomr. I expect this means the Insight Mgmnt software / ILO card needs its own SIM ? )
Grateful fot any views and information.

I need help adding my core servers which don't have any GUI on them.
What are the steps or is there any documentation for this.
Any help would be appreciated
I would like some advice please.
I have added a number of Citrix Xenservers (ProLiant XL230a Gen9) to Systems Insight Manager but cannot see the guests. How do I see the guests?
SIM: version 7.6.0
SIM is not able to discover servers with Windows Server 2016.
Discovery of servers with Windows Server 2012 R2 works fine.
I use same settings (Credentials, HPE agents, Windows Firewall, GPOs, etc.) for all systems.
Can anyone help?

We have issues when displaying several IP’s hostname under “all system” menu via HP-SIM web.
We have enable the debug log while discovery NEs and we can see below exceptions in the log:
08/22 16:21:39 [DeviceIdentifyThread-5] (Identification Via Discovery:38) Processing MxUnknownHostException exception
08/22 16:21:39 [DeviceIdentifyThread-8] (Identification Via Discovery:38) Unknown host: 10.139.8.30
Below is a grep output of the unknown host exception.

We have confirmed that all the hostname of these IPs have been defined on the /etc/hosts file on HP-SIM.
here are the output of commands "mxgethostname" for some IPs:
[root@wltpnj22-com-401-sim logs]# mxgethostname -n 10.139.8.30
can any one give some guildence about what is required to check?

I am working on a system that holds multiple HP DL380 GEN 9 serves operating on a VMWARE -ESX OS. I want to be able to monitor the different status from the server through SNMP, some status includes:
I have seen information on downloading and installing the HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM) into the server and updating the MIB bundle kit for monitoring. Howerver this utilities can only be download for Windows, Linux or UX operatng systems.
Is it possible to install the SIM and bundle kit into VMWARE? is there another method to enable SNMP Monitoring?
Thank you in advance
I have a DL385p G8 with iLO 4 version 2.54 and Debian 8 with hp-ams 2.6.0-2378.51 installed.
I can snmpwalk the iLO4 interface for the OID tree 22.214.171.124.4.1.232 (Compaq Enterprise) and get status information about power, memory, fans etc.
But when I query the Linux OS I get no answer.
# snmpwalk -t 60 -v 2c -Ox -c public my.dl385p.com 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.23 = No more variables left in this MIB View (It is past the end of the MIB tree)
There is no other SNMP service installed and iLO has Agentless Management enabled.
Any ideas what's wrong here?

Some time ago we've finished applying HP_SPP-2017.04 to all our servers
So in HPSIM servers are in HP_SPP-2017.04 compliant state now
To update components up to level of Reference Support Pack uploaded to repository we use HP Version Control Agent page on HPE System Management Homepage site
But now on some servers if I start HPSUM from disk I can see there are components requiring update: HPE Firmware Flash for Emulex Converged Network Adapters, for example
Which categories of components are not intended to be updated via HPE System Management Homepage ?
Should we use HPSUM for SAN-connected servers only? And VCA (which is our favorite as the update takes less effort) for the rest ?
Thanks in advance.
A while ago, I noticed that the Smart Storage Battery for Smart Array P440ar Controller on ML350 G9 was broken, but it seems that there was no critical message displayed in SIM event list.
In the past the same occurred on ML350 G5 server, the following message was showed at events list correctly.
I tried the following methods to solve this problem on ML350 G9, but it was not resolved.
Below are the results I confirmed.
Have anyone ever seen the same phenomenon?
I saw mentioned of HP SIM 7.6LR, which has support for Sum 8.0. I can't find anywhere to download either SIM 7.6LR or Sum 8.0. Can anyone point me in the right direction - or are they just talking about software that hasn't been released yet?

I've installed http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c05350303 SIM 7.6 for windows on a windows vm. My purpose is to monitor our real baremetal gen8/9 servers from this VM using the SMH.
However when I log into the SMH on the VM, the datasource in the top right is Empty. SNMP server is running on the server. Am I missing some configuration, does this kind of setup work?

I am working on installing Insight Manager 7.6 using an Remote SQL Instance.
I have a couple of questions that I have not been able to find the answers to and was looking for a bit of help. Here is what I can tell you about our setup:
1. HP SIM - Server 2012 R2
2. SQL - Server 2012 R2 - SQL 2014
3. Logging in to SIM server as my self
4 . will use Domain Service account to make connection to SQL server during install.
5. SQL Server will be a shared SQL server
Questions, in no particular order:
1. I know that the service account requres "dbo" permissions to "Master". Does it need to keep that permission or can it be removed and given lower level permissions?
2. Does SIM require its own Instance of SQL or can SIM share the instance wtih other Databases? Our plan is to use this as a shared SQL server.
I may have more as time goes on.
Thanks in advace for any help
I am currently using SNMP with Agentless Management and HPE SIM. I would like to move to SNMP v3, if possible. However, I know little to nothing about SNMP v3 and have some questions:
1) In the iLO, do I need to set any SNMP values if I am using SNMP v3? For example, do I need a Read community set? What about traps? How does SNMP v3 know where to send traps if I dont include this info in the SNMP section? Do I still need to provide a trap community and alert detination? Is this still clear text, or would SNMP v3 provide the encryption for the trap community?
2) Do I need both Authentication AND Privacy passphrase, or just one or the other? If not, what are the benefits of using both?
3) Do I use SHA or MD5? Why?
4) Do I use DES or AES? Why?
5) Do I need an Engine ID? Why?
In HPE SIM, for the SNMP v3 discovery credentials, there are more "options" and hence do no match what the iLO is asking for. For example:
Thanks for any info.
VM59093-4 is my SIM box. I found a posting saying i need to install wbem providers
We have several HP servers running, and a HP FC SAN. I currently established a two node cluster with pacemaker on SLES 11 SP4. Pacemaker has a resource agent "ClusterMon" which is intended to be used for monitoring the cluster via SNMP. My SIM is already running fine and monitoring several devices.

Can anyone give me a clue what is wrong with the mib files and what i can do ? I'm not an expert with the syntax of these files.
Running hpsmh-7.60.-11 on RHEL 6. The org I am working with wants multiple OUs in the server certificate and wants it signed with at least a SHA256WithRSAEncryption signature signing algorithm. Are either of those possible?
