You need to senable SNMP on end nodes and allow SMH and SIM to connect that, also SIM should be able to connect SMH like with domain user.

suggest you focus on the guide's discovery/identification and data collection are the key processes to run through , check further in the guide which will be handy in guiding your configuration and troubleshooting too
HP SIM can automatically discover and identify systems attached to the network using information from management protocols such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP, SNMPv3), Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), WBEM, Secure Shell (SSH), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), HTTP/HTTPs, and WS-MAN. Create discovery tasks to limit discovery to specific network segments or IP address ranges, or to control the frequency that each task runs. Use discovery filters to prevent discovery of unwanted system types.

For a complete list, see “Out-of-the-box MIB support in HP SIM” (page 234).You can use tools provided by HP SIM to integrate third-party (non-HP) SNMP v1/v2/v3 MIBs into HP SIM and to provide support for processing and displaying traps from other systems. The MIB syntax extensions supported by HP SIM provide additional value in customizing specific trap information. Finally, the set of MIBs included with HP SIM to provide out-of-the-box support for many HP systems.

can you please recommended how I should I set SNMP settings on HPSIM server and servers being monitored in details with some screen prints if at all possible please?
It is not documented on the net. You need to read manuals of HP SMH (which are only installed when you install SMH after SNMP component of windows)
