HP Systems Insight Manager v6.2 Questions

Good day everyone. I have inherited a domain with primarily HP servers. One of the servers is currently being used to house the HP Systems Insight Manager. I have a few questions:

I need to change/check all areas where credentials have been used to see what was used (e.g. services, etc). I can see two services tied to a domain account for the previous domain admin but I would think there would be other credentials within the SIM. Am I correct? If so, how to change all of these credentials?

I have tried to open up the SIM web interface but all I see is a icon to takes me to the HP Systems Management Homepage. How do I access the SIM web interface?

Thank you

http://hostname:280/ where hostname is name of SIM server,
or Start - Programs - HP Systems Insight Manager - HP Systems Insight Manager.

Try looking for Windows groups under Options - Security - Users and Authorizations.

Sorry for the late response but I have been out of the office for over a week. I just now had time to try this. I am able to reach the login page for the SIM server using the above URL but do not seem to be able to authenticate using my domain credentials.

Any ideas on how I can access?

Active directory integration if it is setup needs \\domain\user, if not then I think you stop the service and run "mxpassword -m -x oo.admin.password=<New password>" for a new admin password.

The SIM webpage shows a section to enter user name, password, and domain. I have tried entering the \\domain\user and password with no succeeds.

What exactly will the "mxpassword -m -x oo.admin.password=<New password>" do? Will this change only the admin password for the SIM application and nothing on AD, etc that would affect anything else?

Yes, the command is in the SIM directory somewhere.

Or run mxpassword -g for GUI mode.

So, after running the command "mxpassword -l" to list the passwords, it only lists one password for a user "MXSshKeyPassword". Am I missing something? I don't see an admin account.

Hmm, think it's only the DB accounts etc after all, you can check with GUI mode. Will have to look up in manual.

I did run this process in GUI mode as well and I saw the above details as well as MxDBUserPassword but I was not able to list the password for that Password Key.

It is just the database management then, sorry.
