Hi everyone, I need an advice or two on monitoring Dell and HP hardware.
My company needs to monitor our server hardware (Dell and HP - We have several generation of ProLiant and Poweredge), preferably without the need for installing anything extra on the servers (like Dell OpenManage or HP offline bundle). Hopefully we can get the job done with SNMP traps from ILO and iDrac? We have ESXi installed on the servers with standard vmware images.
We have a lot of HP products available to do the job: HP System Insight Manager, HP Operations, HP Network Node Manager. We need to be able to send hardware alerts to HP Openview attached to the specific CI.
Any ideas on best practise or which HP product is the best one to use?
