Feature Description
Inventory Management Discovers and identifies devices and stores inventory data in a database. Users can generate various reports based on the industry latest standards.
Health Management Provides proactive notification of actual or impending component failure alerts. Automatic Event Handling allows users to configure policies to execute scripts, forward events, and to notify appropriate users of failures via e-mail, pager, or SMS.
HP Version Control Automatically downloads the latest BIOS, driver, and agent updates for ProLiant and Integrity servers running Windows and Linux. Identifies systems running out-of-date software and enables system software updates across groups of servers.
Easy and rapid installation First time Wizard provides step-by-step, online guidance for performing the initial configuration of HP SIM, and helps you configure HP SIM settings on the Central Management Server (CMS).
Consistent multi-system management A single command from a CMS can initiate a task on multiple systems or nodes, eliminating the need for tedious, one-at-a-time operations on each system.
Secure remote management Leverages OS security for user authentication and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Secure Shell (SSH) to encrypt management communications.
Role-based security Allows effective delegation of management responsibilities by giving systems administrators granular control over which management operations users can perform on selected devices.
Tool definitions Simple XML documents that allow customers to integrate off-the-shelf or custom command line and web-based applications or scripts into the HP SIM user interface.
Data collection and inventory reports Performs comprehensive system data collection and enables users to quickly produce detailed inventory reports for managed devices. Save reports in multiple formats for easy incorporation into popular reporting packages.
Snapshot comparisons Allows users to compare configuration snapshots of up to four different servers or configuration snapshots of a single server over time.
Two user interfaces Provides a web browser graphical user interface (GUI) and a command line interface (CLI) to make it easy to incorporate HP SIM into your existing management processes.
Support for HP-UX Serviceguard clusters HP-UX Serviceguard clusters are recognized and displayed in the HP SIM GUI. HP Serviceguard Manager is opened by clicking a Serviceguard cluster in a search list and provides information on the clusters.
Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) indications Subscribe and unsubscribe to WBEM indications for HP-UX, Windows, and Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S) devices through the GUI or through the command line interface (CLI).
