How to install SIM?

Verify your system meets the minimum requirements.

Normally, the customer would install the latest required and recommended HP-UX 11i patches.

The latest Java patches required by HP SIM are at: http://www.hp.com/products1/unix/java/patches/index.html

For other HP-UX patches, refer to the ITRC website or the HP Software Depot: IT Resource Center (ITRC) Web site: http://itrc.hp.com ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com Software Depot Web site: http://www.hp.com/go/softwaredepot

When installing HP Systems Insight Manager Java-out-of-box (JAVAOOB) is required and will be automatically selected for installation. For additional information, refer to http://www.hp.com/products1/unix/java/java2/outofbox/index.html.

The kernel parameter values it adjusts are listed below. Even if JAVAOOB was installed with the operating environment, check the kernel tunables in the following table for appropriate values.

max_thread_proc >=3000 maxdsiz >=2063835136 maxfiles >=2048 maxfiles_lim >=2048 maxusers >=512 nfile >=4097 nkthread >=6000 nproc >=2048 tcp_conn_request_max >=2048


Additionally, HP Systems Insight Manager 5.0 automatically adjusts the following kernel parameters during the installation process:

nfile 30000 semmns 2048 semmni 1024


Verify that a previous version of HP SIM or SCM is NOT running on your system. If a previous version of HP SIM or SCM is running on your system, the installation may not be successful. To perform a fresh install of HP SIM, first remove previous versions of HP SIM or SCM.

  1. ps -ef | grep mx
  2. what /opt/mx/lbin/mxdomainmgr

Installing and Configuring

a. Run mxinitconfig –l. This tests that the system has the requisite software and configuration. Look at the “requisite” status at each item in the output. If the status is “Acceptable” for every item, proceed to the next step. If the status is “Unacceptable”, determine the cause, fix the configuration, and then proceed to the next step. The following shows what the output looks like when HP SIM is ready for initialization:

# mxinitconfig -l

c. HP SIM should now be running. Check to see that mxdomain manager, mxdtf, and mxinventory are running:

# ps -ef | grep mx
