Insight RSA 5.50 Demo


Course description

These demonstrations provide a detailed overview of the prerequisites, installation,
and configuration of HP SIM (Systems Insight Manager) and
Insight RSA (Insight
Remote Support Advanced) for a Windows
-
based CMS (Central Management
Server). As of Insight A.05.
5
0, the CMS can be installed on a VMware ESX or ESXi
virtual machine, so several demos have also be included for that type of installation
.

The demos will also provide information on the prerequisites, installation, and
configuration of some of the more common managed endpoint servers.


Note

These demos should be considered idealized configurations that will likely differ
for your particular

configuration. You should therefore always refer to the most
current product documentation when performing an installation.


The demos are presented
as follows:




Install, configure, and verify the operation of the Insight RSA CMS (Central
Management Serv
er).



Discover and configure Insight RSA to monitor and collect information from
managed:


HP
-
UX Servers


Linux Servers


SMS (Storage Management Servers)


Windows Servers


P4000 SAN Solutions


Tape Libraries

Installation Options


Note

Please refer to the latest documentation for the up to date list of prerequisites.


Note

The initialization and registration of Remote Support Software

Manager
(RSSWM) can only be performed by a user who is logged onto the Hosting
Device via the system console or Remote Desktop Connection session. Do not
attempt to initialize or register via a non
-
console mode Terminal Services or
Remote Desktop Connecti
on session. For Windows 2003, you need to use the

/console switch (c:
\
windows
\
system32
\
mstsc.exe /console). For Windows

2008, you need to use the /admin switch (c:
\
windows
\
system32
\
mstsc.exe

/admin).


Note

The CMS needs to be any HP ProLiant x86 or x64 wi
th Insight Management

My Computer

icon, and click the
Manage

option. The Computer
Management window appears.

2.

Expand

After you have configured the proxy settings, you can verify the connectivity to HP
backend by using the following methods:



To test the connectivity between the Remote Support Client on the CMS and the
HP Support Center, use the URL:
https://services.isee
.hp.com/version/index.html
. The response should be a
version number, for example 05.16.08.133.



To test the connectivity between the CMS and the Software Management server
within the HP Support Center, use the URL:
https://rsswm.software.hp.com:443/site
. T
he response should provide the status
of the Software Management server.

Installing the .NET Framework

1.

.NET Framework version 2.0 is required to run Insight Remote Support. To install
.NET Framework 2.0, go to the folder where you have saved the setup file
. If you
do not have the setup files, you can download .NET Framework 2.0 from
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en
-
us/netframework/aa731542.aspx.


Note

If you install .NET Framework 3.x on a system that does not have version 2.0
installed, the installer will auto
matically install version 2.0 for you. This will
complete .NET Framework 2.0 requirement for Insight Remote Support
Advanced. Do not uninstall .NET Framework 2.0 from a .NET Framework 3.x
installation as Insight Remote Support Advanced will not function wi
thout it.


2.

Click the
dotnetfx.exe

file to start the installation and click
Next
.

3.

Accept the license agreement and click
Install
.

4.

Click
Finish

once the installation is complete.

1.

Now, we will download and install Java which is one of the prerequisites. Go to
http://java.sun.com/getjava

to download and install Java.

2.

Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the Java installation.

3.

Once the installation is complete, go to the Internet

Explorer properties to verify
if the installation was successful by opening Internet Explorer and viewing
Properties
.

Installing and Configuring Insight
RSA
software

Installing initial Insight RSA component software


Note

If you are not using a Web proxy server, you must open your firewall to allow
communication over port 443. The Remote Support Client uses port 443 to send
encrypted data to HP and to
receive acknowledgements and information in
response to requests from the Remote Support Client software.


The Remote Support Client communicates directly with the HP Support Center through
the firewall or web proxy server (if a web proxy server is in use
). The Remote Support
Client supports connecting directly to the Internet or connecting through a proxy
server and supports all proxy servers conforming to the HTTP/1.0 Specification.
Kerberos authentication is not supported by either the SWM or the Remote

Support
Client.

Because the Remote Support Software Manager does not support proxies using
proxy auto
-
configuration scripts or NT LAN Manager (NTLM) authentication (also
known as Integrated Windows Authentication), it is recommended that you also not
use
these for the Remote Support Client communications. You may choose to use a
different proxy server for SWM that does not use NTLM and a separate proxy server
for the Remote Support Client.



Note

It is now required that the CMS uses DNS resolution to dete
rmine the IP
addresses for the HP Support Center.

Insight RSA Managed HP
-
UX Server prerequisites

There are two primary types of Insight RSA
perquisites

for a managed HP
-
UX

Server,
and the following links will provide a demo of how to meet those prerequisites:



System hardware and software prerequisites, includes minimum hardware
requirements, patches, ancillary software, and specific software versioning.
There are two methods for determining if the hardware and software
perquisites

are met:


Installation Advisor

software, included in the Remote Support Software
Manager as of Insight RSA A.05.40, provides two scripts that can be used
to determine if the prerequisites are met.


Managed Systems Guide
-

The HP
-
UX Managed System Requirements for
Insight Remote Support

section of the HP Insight Remote Support Advanced
A.05.40 Managed Systems Guide has a detailed list of the prerequisites
and the commands that can be used to determine if the requirements are
met.



Creating a Non
-
privileged User on the HP
-
UX Server, is se
curity best practices
for creating a user with specific management rights instead of using root.

Installation Advisor software

The Installation Advisor provides utilities that verify monitored systems are
communicating properly, utilities that collect all
relevant log files if a problem is
encountered, and utilities to configure monitored endpoint devices to communicate
properly. The Installation Advisor may not provide a complete survey of your
customer‟s HP
-
UX endpoint, in that case, consult the HP
-
UX Man
aged Systems
Requirements for Insight Remote Support > Software and Patch Requirements for HP
-
UX 11.23, stopping at the beginning of section titled Software and Patch
Requirements for HP
-
UX 11.31 of the "HP Insight Remote Support Advanced Managed
Systems G
uide".

The RSSWM copies the Installation Advisor, as a archived file to the CMS. In this
demo, we will ftp the Installation Advisor from the CMS to your lab group‟s HP
-
UX
server and then run the scripts necessary to verify prerequisites have been met.

f
tp Installation Advisor Files from CMS to HP
-

1.

From a DOS command window on your CMS, change to the c:

SNMP Configuration: SNMP must be enabled on the CMS to communicate with
the P4000 SAN Solution. You need to add the IP address of your P4000 SAN
Solution to the CMS trap receiver list or allow the CMS to receive traps from all
the I
P addresses. If you do not modify the SNMP defaults that CMC uses, then
P4000 SAN Solution and the CMS can communicate without any modification.
To configure the SNMP service:
