I have 17 HP Proliant servers that I would like to monitor using HP SIM & IRS. My BIG question is I would like to install HP SIM on a Virtual Machine and monitor the 17 servers. BUT I would like to Run HP iRS from an HP Physical Server. The reason we want to do this is because we trust the VM cluster more than a physical box to monitor 17 critical servers. Do you guys have any documentation that can lead me to do this? Do you guys see any issues with this? Please help I would really appreciate it.
Thanks you In advanced.

There are two types of IRS available:
IRS Stamdard, the solution for a small number of managed devices and basically remote device monitoring.
It cannot be installed on a system where HP-SIM is running on it. Service incidents can be submittet into SIM via SNMP traps.
IRS Advanced, works together with HP-SIM and it offers additional services like remote entitlement check. IRS Advanced expects a running SIM.
IRS can also be installed on a virtual instance.
More detailed information you'll find in the IRS release notes and it's documentation on

Sorry, but there is no way to install IRSA in a server without HPSIM.
The only viable solution for your request is install IRSS in the physical server and keep you HPSIM in the virtual server.
