VMware ESXi 5.5 and SIM

Last Modified: 2016-08-09
I have built an HP Insight Manager (SIM) Server and have connected our Windows servers, but now I'm looking at our VMware systems.  I know if ESXi systems are built with the HP image it has all of these items by default, but most of our systems are using the general VMware image.

My steps would include:
Check VMware vs HP image...by opening the file /bootbank/oem/oem.txt
Download HP bundles from the depot
esxcli software vib install -d <ESXi local path><bundle.zip>

The question i have is which of the four HP bundles do i have to install to get this connected to SIM?  I like to install a little as possible so i'm hoping i don't need all four files.
