HP blade enclosures are often used for virtualization environments, specifically VMware. Hence OS-idependent monitoring of this hardware is desirable. This how-to describes how that can be achieved.
- Make sure the ILO-card in the blade enclosure has an IP-address assigned and that the card is accessible over the network from the op5 Monitor server
- Configure the ILO-card to passthrough SNMP-requests to the baseboard management controller (an option you set in the ILO configuration interface)
- Monitor the hardware using the latest version of the check_hpasm plugin.
