HPSIM 6.2 wbem not working

I have upgraded from 5.3 and now the wbem has stopped working on SOME of my esxi 4.0 hosts. I got this error "An association between the two systems listed below has been removed. This can happen for several reasons, the most common is that credentials have changed for one of the two systems, other causes are that the OS has been redeployed and does not have instrumentation, try running Configure and Repair Agent Settings."  The repair fails

When I try to subscribe to wbem events on these hosts I get an error saying wbem must be greater than or equal to 1, and that wbem is not installed. wbem is installed, and was working fine until the upgrade to 6.2.

I wanted to download the esxi 4.0 agents but according to the document title "HP Management Agents for VMware ESX 4.x Only (Not for ESXi 4.x)" but under the Operating System(s): VMware ESX/ESXi 4.0, VMware ESX/ESXi 4.1 it shows that ESXi is supported. The file name is hpmgmt-8.5.1-vmware4x.tgz

I am at a loss here, not sure if this will work or not, or what I need to do to fix this.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You cannot install the standard HP SIM Agents on ESXi. These agents are designed for ESX only.

Do you have the HP version of ESXi installed, I would assume so because HP SIM 5.3 was talking correctly to the ESXi servers.

You may need to update the CIM Providers on your ESXi hosts.

Your assumption is correct, worked fine with 5.3.  The strange thing is that I have other ESXi hosts that are working fine, and are the same build.  I have a call into HP.  Hope they can get this resolved.  Since my SIM is a vm, I could revert back the snapshot I took and go back to 5.3, but really do not want to do that, since we have G7s on order.  I argee with you about updateing the ESXi hosts but need to get the correct software.
