We have a mix of Windows 2003 and 2008 Proliant DL380 G4 G5 and G6 servers and HP SIM 6.0 running under Windows 2008 R2.
We can see the status of all servers in real time. I just unplugged one PSU in a non-critical server and a couple of minutes later that server had a "major" problem on the HP SIM screens under the All Systems tab.
But no event was generated!
If there are no events we don't get email notifications.
Just to complicate things even more this was running V6 under Windows 2003 standard and it was migrated to the 2008 R2 server its on now.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
Should mention we have disabled all other SNMP server products and tried rediscovering which didnt work.
This seems to be to do with the fact that events in SIM aren't being generated.
