HP Systems Insight Manager uses HTTP and SNMP for identifying management processors. Previous versions of HP Systems Insight Manager used only SNMP identification to identify management processors and obtain their status. Now, HTTP identification is performed first, followed by SNMP identification. If a new management processor has been installed in the server, the Web Agents must be reinstalled on the server, or the management processor might not be correctly identified. If both the server and the management processor have been discovered and identified, an association is made. The association between the management processor and the server displays in the System Name column on the system list page by showing "management processor" in server "system."
SNMP Status Polling obtains the status for the host server. HP Systems Insight Manager can distinguish between the following management processor products:
The system list results page provides information about management processors:
The server entry displays a Status icon in the MP column. The tool tip for the icon displays the status of the management processor. Clicking this icon launches the Remote Insight Home page.
The management processor entry displays the name of the server with which the management processor is associated by showing "management processor" in server "system."
For all remote management processor entries, the System Type field states management processor and the Product Name field states Remote Insight Management.
The system list page contains an MP column, which displays the status of the management processor. There are five different status levels. These status level icons are the same status level icons used for software status.
The management processor status icons launch the Remote Insight Home page and display in a separate browser. On this page, you can find the following information:
Server Power Status
Remote Insight IP Address
Remote Insight Name
Latest Integrated Management Log Entry
Latest Remote Insight Event Log Entry
Remote Insight Mouse Cable
Clicking the management processor in the System Name column launches the System Page for that management processor. Refer to System Page - Identity Tab for more information.
For a server with a Remote Insight Board, the System Page includes the Management Processor Information box.
