I have OMW 8.16 in a VM server and all of our workstation is Win7. I still have an XP and unable to upgrade to Win 7 as OMW 8.16 Console is not compatible to run. I have seen some documentation that OMW 9. is compatible so I downloaded the Software_Operations_Manager_9.00_for_Windows_TC0901-15000.iso and tried to install the Remote console and fails. The attach files states that the 2014.02.21 10:08:54.321 - EXCEPTION : Message: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Program Files\HP\HP BTO Software\lbin\OvOW\ServerConsoleInstall\install.ini'.
Am I doing this wrong. I am installing OMW 9.0 -- No OMW 8.16 as it also fails
Can someone help me? I just needed a remote console of OMW for me to use so I can upgrade to Win7.
You would be able to install OMW 9.0 Remote Console on a Windows 7 system. I see that you have Windows 7 64 bit as well and so it should be okay. Just for sanity check can you reboot the Windows 7 system and try to install the Remote Console again and see if it works. Also if the RC installation is successful then do patch the Remote Console to same patch level as your OMW 8.1x server (note that patch number is not exactly same for one is 8.x and other is 9.0 but you have equivalent patches).
If the installation still fails then you may want to get in touch with HP support and ask their help on this issue.
OMW 8.16 plus OMW_00090 supports remote 64 bit MMC console if the remote 64 bit MMC console binaries are installed from the OMW 9 media kit. For this scenario the same 64 bit operating systems are supported for the MMC console as for OMW 9. Please be aware that the service map / hyperbolic tree is not available on consoles running a 64-bit OS. It is not supported to use the OMW 8.16 (plus OMW_00090) binaries on the remote 64 bit MMC console system.
