In HP Insight Manager, I see some technical terms that don't make too much sense to me, such as:

Under Health Status , I see:
  Out of Band
  MP (Management Processor)
  Ping ( even though I can ping the node from HPSIM)
 SNMP : There is a server problem that is degrading functionality
 iLO: There is a server problem that is degrading functionality



Thanks

Go to HP SMH on server itself and figure out.
All should be green


OOB - management processor that has separate network connection
MP=iLO= HP management processor
SNMP - ask gogol ... and install it

To resolve actual :error: status for some node go to management homepage on that server.

To get more info on terms ask google or wikipedia.

You should make some effort clarifying what is the problem.

None of mentioned in question represents a problem.

OK.. what I needed to understand is just the menaing of the terms used in HPSIM:

 Out of Band = it shows Green, but it doesn't mean I should ignore the meaning of it. What are they referring to by Out of band ?

  MP (Management Processor) = I get the RED X all the time for some servers.
 I found a blog that says remove something from the client  HP agent in control panel, so I did but it didn't work out.

  Ping RED X ( even though I can ping the node from HPSIM)
 SNMP : this is not a critical error but Major error it says:There is a server problem that is degrading functionality. Though the SNMP is configured properly.
 iLO: There is a server problem that is degrading functionality. This one makes sense,if the iLO port doesn't have a cable connected to it and to the switch.

Out of band means a network wire to ILO, not shared with hosts connection as on ML110 etc
Management processor detects what SMH (a Systems Management Homepage) on a server reports, sp look there.

Ping is ability to browse SMH over HTTPS and enjoy access there
SNMP means -''- with SNMP agent on the remote machine

iLO = Out Of Band Management Processor, it needs to be enabled for e.g remote restarts or setting up disk space thresholds reported etc etc.

i.e to manage machine SIM needs to access SMH, connect management processor named iLO directly and access SNMP read-write
should any be missing it will complain.
