I had my Insight Mgr homepages working just fine under ESX 3.0.2 and ESX 3.5 U1, but....
I just did a clean install of 3.5 U2 and reinstalled SIM 8.1.0 (per vmware supported mgr page) and now I have nothing. No system info, no serial number, no nothing.
Anyone run into this on a clean build of 3.5 U2?
You're not logged as Administrator in SMH, you need to Login in the up-right corner with user root and password, then you'll be able to see all information, check it out please.
SNMP was configured before installing 8.1.0.
I did not use a config file, just the --install option as I have done in the past.
This is also a fresh install of update 2. Does Update2 ISO contain a small SIM integration that gives the new Health Status view in the configuration tab? Could this be my issue?
Also, whether i am in as anonymous or root, view is the same.
Verify SNMP is running. Also verify your SNMP trapsinks, is one of them localhost? Next I would contact HP for assistance as this really sounds like a configuration issue. As for integration with CIMserver, HPASM has this capability and Pegasus should be running on your host as well. I would also consider starting with an original snmpd.conf file or use one from a working host.

I reverted back to the default snmp.conf file, but still nothing.
Here's the kicker, I can go into hpasmcli and run show server and I see the server model, serial number, rom, proc, etc.
Im having a similar problem, I'm new to ESX, I run ESX 3.5 U2, I have installed the "hpmgmt-8.1.1-vmware3x" only and replied y to all the options. I enabled all the firewall ports but have not configured snmp as I'm thinking that the install handles everything. When I open the management homepage on the ESX host I get nothing. See screen shot. Are there any other agents I need to install?
