Please use 7.7 on all ESX releases (3.x and 2.x).
Although an upgrade is possible, we recommend to uninstall older agents (for example with installvm760.sh uninstall) and do a fresh install of 7.7 agents.
Please do not run 7.6x since we had some serious issues (as described on http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/26407.html). For example:
\- Fixed an issue wherein the storage agents consumed excessive CPU time, potentially resulting in server reboots (ASRs). The CCISS device nodes are now kept open by default on
You do not need to disable the Storage Agent with 7.7.
Note: There are different packages for 2.x and 3.x.
So please choose the right one.
7.7 is officially supported by VMware and HP.

We have agent 7.7.0 installed. We were wondering if anyone has any ideas why it doesnt send SNMP traps when NIC link failures occur?
Disk and power problems work fine, but not NIC (we can see the failure on the insight manager homepage, but just dont receive any SNMP notification).
This a bug that HP refuses to fix since 7.2.x agents for ESX 2.5x We have completely given up on HP on this point. They just do not acknowledge the issue as a priority. They do acknowledge it is not very customer friendly. To bad, I have always been a fan of the issue. Part of of the problem is that ESX does a better job watching the NICs than HP agents do.
I downloaded and installed v7.8.0 and installed it on DL585 G2 server. I got alert okie when disconnect a NIC but did not get any alert when I pulled out a drive or 1 power supply.
Any one having this problem ?
