I keep reading about HP Insight Manager in various blog posts and Server Fault questions. I am currently working with 3 HP ProLiant DL360 G4's, 2 DL380 G3's and a ML110 G6. All have iLo installed and configured on the local network.

I would like to see an overview of the current server state I.e. Does server A need updating and if so click here to do so.

HP Insight Management WBEM Providers for ESXi deliver a full set of monitoring and management information and capabilities for HP ProLiant server hardware. This information covers all aspects of the server’s health including fans, power supplies, temperature, CPUs, memory and locally attached storage. Hp smart update manager download.

  2. Hi, if you need the HP Agents, you need to install the HP Branded ESXi Version. With the ESXi Version you could download at VMware are no HP Agents integrated.
  3. Re: ESXi 4.1 Insight Manager Agents I agree, the information from HP and VMware is lacking. I've searched both sites and my understanding is that the only way to get HP agents on ESXi is to install the HP customized ESXi version.
  4. Question on management agents for vSphere 5.0 from Todd: ***** I don’t see any HP Management Agents out there for ESXi 5.0. Only things I’m.
  5. This paper describes the integration of VMware ESXi with HP System Insight Manager to provide full hardware management capabilities on HP ProLiant Servers. It also describes the hardware information and monitoring features available with VMware vCenter. Download PDF Description: This paper describes the integration of VMware ESXi with HP.

What I was wondering is if someone could explain:

  1. Where I can get HP insight manager from?
  2. Is it free?
  3. Can I access all the iLO servers from one interface?
  4. Does the software need it's own server?

Additional question; most of the servers will be running the HP specific version of ESX 4.1. Is there a specific way to install any agents required on them?

This may be similar to my other question about specific use-cases of HP SIM at:

Either way, HP Systems Insight Manager is free and available from:

You can access ILO interfaces detected on your network from one place. HP SIM will also associate the ILO interfaces with the physical servers for you.

The software should probably run on its own Windows (or Linux) server, but for the size of the environment you're describing, it can run in a VM. Here are the minimum hardware specs from the Quickspecs page:

As for monitoring VMs, HP SIM is aware of VMWare ESX and ESXi and will display information about VMs discovered on your host servers. The HP-specific ESXi version will show hardware status and won't require any agents. They've already been integrated into the ESXi build.

**A note on the ESXi builds. I don't believe you'll get full hardware health info from any systems earlier than a G5. You won't be able to get ESXi 4 to run on the G3 servers (not 64-bit capable).

I have a 3 ESX cluster version 3.5 already installed. I also have HP insite manager (version 5.1 with SP1) installed on our monitoring server. (Which runs to look over our 3coms, network devices, ect) After running the scan it picked up all the servers including the ESX servers. However, the health status shows as 001cMajor001d but my guess is that it is not seeing it correctly. I have downloaded the rar file hpmgmt-7.5.1a-vmware.tgz from HP0019s site but even after reading this instructions I am still a little lost. Still kinda new to this VMware.
