HP Proliant: how to get notified when the components of server went bad...

I would like to know how can I know when the components inside server went bad without having to check manually through HP management homepage. I think we can use the Event notifier in HP management agents..... is this the way to achieve it? or there is other ways to get notified before the server get worse....

I am using HP Onboard Administrator, this will provide most of the information about hardware,firmwareetc

For HP Proliant server with Windows platform, there should be a System Management Homepage icon. You should be able to see the status of your components. You can set up alerting either via SNMP or e-mail. Have a look under Start -> Programs -> HP Management Agents -> Event Notifier Config to set up email notification for a single server.

>> for multiple servers setup Insight Manager SNMP monitoring.
even the server not in the same forest and in different location? and what would be the different if I set up individually using the Event Notifier?

I am really confused with all the HP software, could you also please give me a quick overview? with the smart cd installed, I got system management hompage where I can check the overall system info.
And I also enabled iLO and inside the page i also get similar info....... now, there is insight manager.... also another one called insight remote support... really confusing....

>>You'll need an email server setup to relay for the IP address of the server.
i guess I can only use my internal mail server, as there is no options that I can enter any username and password right?

Also, I noticed that when I tried to open snmp & agent setting, i don't see anything there... i think it's preventing me to setup the notification.. do you know how i can fix this?
