HP SIMS problem - can only monitor select servers

Hi There,

I've setup automatic event handling for the all servers group and a few other groups I setup myself in HP SIM.  Unfortunately I am only emailed by the automatic event handler for select servers and not all of them.

I also have 2 routers I would like to monitor the status of using their LAN addresses but if I reboot them I still dont get any notification of the outage.  Can anyone point me in the right direction for what I might be missing here on the config?  I dont understand why it works for some servers and not others?

Are all servers managed in HPSIM?
Are SNMP trap destination and community strings correct on the managed servers?

As for the Cisco routers are trap and community strings correct?
How long does the reboot take on the router in minutes, default polling for HPsim is 5 minutes if memory servers me correctly?

Hi 65td,

All the servers are managed in HPSIM

I'm quite new to this can you explain what I would need to do to verify that the SNMP trap strings are correct? I am not familiar with this at all!

I guess the same goes for the routers - I wouldn't know what to look for with the strings again.  The router comes back up in around 2-3 mins - do you know of a way of changing the polling settings to less than 5 mins?

thanks for your help

Rob

Windows SNMP settings can be reviewed from the services applet, snmp, properties, security tab and traps.
Need to be what SIM wants, default is public and private.

Routers need to access console, what model are they?

We have Cisco ASA5510's - how can we get these monitored?

The router needs to have it's configuration updated with trap destination and community strings.
See cisco documentation:

If events still are not seen in the HP SIM event list,  be sure that the cisco MIBs are compiled in HP SIM. Many Cisco mibs are included by default, you can view this by running mxmib -l on the HP SIM server from a command prompt.
To compile new mibs run mcompile <updated mib>
then mxmib -a <updatedmib.cfg>

You can also turn on accept unregistered traps under the options->events->event filtering menu.
