Hello,

I have an hp ProLiant ML350 G3 with windows 2003

I want to manage the server's hardware,

I have hp System Management Homepage installed but when I open it, there is not much to see (see image)

I think I need to install agents... but how???

I also have these software installed:

hp array configuration utility cli
hp array diagnostic utility
hp proliant integrated management log viewer
hp proliant remote monitor servicehp protect your data
hp version control agent

do I need to install SIM?

You need to install the latest HP Product Support pack for your model hardware.. that will include all of the agents.

Thank you very much JJdurrant.

it works..

Can you tell me if it is possible to send smtp alerts when... let's say, a hard drive fails?

If yes, could you indicate how to achieve it


one last thing . I have another server that uses an Adaptec 2000S Ultra160 SCSI RAID Controller. I would like to know if there is an application to monitor the array and disk failures.

Thank you very much

You can setup traps within the agents.. but you need a way to process\action on  those alerts... We use HP SIM 6.0

one last thing... I'm looking for a monitoring software for my adaptec 2000s on windows 2003

this link gives me the software, but only for windows xp or 2000

http://www.adaptec.com/en-US/downloads/storage_manager/sm?productId=ASR-2000S&dn=Adaptec+SCSI+RAID+2000S

could it work on my 2003 or is there something else?
