IBM IMM healthcheck

We have over 20 IBM host servers, all of which with the integrated management module. Rather than having to login to each servers IBM IMM I was hoping to identify a process that will collect the IBM IMM health status and configuration information per server into a single report.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could probably use ipmiutil in a script to do this,, at least if they are up to date IMM2.

IBM Hardware can be monitored remotely perfectly,

Via hardware using an HMC (Hardware Management Console)
Via Software using IBM Systems Director.

In any case, to fetch the info of the Health Status, you will have to collect that information with a SNMP sensor, therefore I suggest writing a script with snmpwalk to gather this info from your list of servers.

Or configure SNMP monitors in monitoring software and have it on a real time screen, with something like Zabbix, APM, Nagios, PRTG, etc...

For an example of a SNMP monitor written in perl for Nagios, go to:

http://exchange.nagios.org/directory/Plugins/Hardware/Server-Hardware/IBM/check-IBM-RSA2-SNMP-system-health/details

or review IBM redbooks for SNMP MIBs.
