HP iLO3 not sending SNMP alerts

Posted on 2011-10-17
Last Modified: 2014-07-28
I recently set up my iLOs (mixture of all 3... iLO, iLO2, and iLO3) to all point to an HP NNMi setup so there would be alerting on failed logins.  This is working fine on iLO and iLO2, but for iLO3 I am not getting any alerts on failed logins.

I verified that I am pointing to the same IP for SNMP as I am elsewhere and that its set to log failed logins on the 3rd try.  I also did a test SNMP alert from an iLO3 and NNMi did receive it, but does not get any alerts for failed logins.

Any ideas on what else to try?

    See this document:

    Unable to get SNMP information from HP SIM
    Solution: The agents running on the managed server supply SNMP information to HP SIM. For
    agents to pass information through iLO 3, iLO 3 device drivers must be installed. For installation
    instructions, see “Installing iLO 3 device drivers” (page 23).

    Basically, download the newest PSP for your server and install it - it should install:

    HP ProLiant iLO 3 Management Controller (CHIF)
    HP ProLiant iLO 3 Management Controller (CORE)

    Also make sure SNMP pass-through is enabled on the iLO.
