Install the endpoint operations agent on the physical servers.

Make sure you have licences for them.

To answer you next question it all depends on your licence model you purchased

The EPO agent does not care if it is physical or virtual as it is an operating system installed agent. It will monitor and give you the same functionality if it is physical or virtual.

There is no difference in the install of the agent between VM or physical. Again it is an OS installed agent.

Just having enterprise licences does say if you are licenced or not as there are several licence models. vSOM, Vrops per CPU, vCloud Suite, per osi licences to name a couple. It all depends if your licence model allows for and you have enough free to install on physical servers.

As an example vSOM cones with ESXi licences and as such you would not be allowed to install onto physical servers same for for vCould suite. vrops per OSI licences would as long as you have not used them all for the virtual environment

They are two separate things.

The eops agent will monitor all thing OS related. Services, Page file usage etc

The Management pack from Blue Medora will monitor all things Hardware related. Fan speed, Power utilisation, Firmware levels etc.

There may be some overlap like cpu utilisation

If you installed the eops agent on a server and you cant see it in vrops under operating systems then the eops agent is not configured correctly to talk back to vrops

No it wont EOPS will monitor the OS and some generic hardware eg network and disk space etc.

It will not monitor specific vendors hardware as then VMware would need to write the code for every vendor out there which is impossible. That is why there are different management packs out there. Even the 3rd party MP's dont use the EOPS agent. HP used ILO, Dell uses iDRAC etc

If you want hardware specific monitoring you will need to use the Management Packs. If the Management pack you are looking at does not have the metric you are looking for then you cant monitor that.

I have worked with Blue Medora quite a bit and if there is a metric not being collected and is one that most users would benefit from they will added it to the next release

Then the management pack does not monitor it. Unless there is another management pack for HP servers that monitors what you are looking for then no there is not
