Re: HP BSM and OMi installation

1) no, it's the same installation files

2) OMi is part of BSM, so it is installed as part of BSM. you can install BSM in typical mode (1 server) or distributed (1 GW and 1 DPS)

3) a lot.... OM is managing OM Agents and policies. OMi is the new MoM with new GUI and part of BSM

4) no

Re: HP BSM and OMi installation

Hi Hunumant,

 

Asaf is correct !

 

Actually ! There was two different tool -

 

1. HP OM

2. HP BAC

 

then BAC is upgrade and change the name as BSM with extra features. So OMi is one of the Feature of BSM, Which is little similar as HP OM , but in different manner. It is just a MoM.

Hi ,

 

You need HP Integration Adapter to install into the other server which have your third party tool. It is only used to integrate third party tool with your BSM and take the alert with the help of SNMP trap or XML file.

 

HP Integration Adapter give the alert to OMi Browser according to your configuration in HP Integration Adapter,

The other tool will not show into the BSM.

 

 

If you find the solution then please keep this tag into solution state.

Re: HP BSM and OMi installation

Hi Sumit,

 

Lets say we have 4 different types of network monitoring system like triple data, hp insight control,PAMMI (IPTV, CCTV, wireless network, etc) which are monitoring thier networks, now  If I install HP integration adapter on each of these server then I will be able to forward XML or SNMP traps from these monitoring systems to OMi, right?

 

in this case XML or SNMP traps which has been received in OMi will have node name which is faulty, how will OMi treat this for corelation, as there is no such CI available in OMi,  like SAM, or BPM.

 

Does integration aapter also passes nodes details that is being monitored by that system to OMi(RTSM) which later can be used for correlation.

Re: HP BSM and OMi installation

Hi,

 

You can also write the Discovery Policies in integration adaptor .Discovered attributes may be hardware resources, operating system attributes, applications, and other information that can be retrieved from an object and mapped to CI attributes in the RTSM (Run-time Service Model).

Re: HP BSM and OMi installation

If you use BSM 9.2x you should work with BSM Connector.

Also for intergation with SCOM there is OOB integration package -  BSM for SCOM Connector 2.0. You can download it from HPLN along with all necessary documentation.

Re: HP BSM and OMi installation

Now that OMi is a part of BSM, do I need additional licensing to use OMi or is it included in the basic BSM deployment?

Re: HP BSM and OMi installation

Hi,

 

OMi is a set of seperate licenses, depending on what functionality you want.

 

The Event Management Foundation gives you basic OMi functionality, like the Event Browser, Custom Actions and Tools, Event Processing capabilities, etc.

 

The Topology-Based Event Correlation license adds the ability to do Topology-Based Event Correlation, which is the ability to look at events and determine what event is a cause and what is a symptom (for example, if a router goes down and you see a router down event, and a database unavailable event, the router down is the cause and the database unavailable is the symptom).
