Introduction
This document describes the stages to integrate and use EATON UPSs with the HP OpenView
Network and Systems Management platform. This document is applicable for HP OpenView release 6.
To use any EATON UPSs with this platform, you must have completed the installation and
configuration procedures first.
2 Installation and configuration procedure
2.1
Installation procedure
1. Execute the " hpov_integration_vxx.exe" package and follow the instructions:
2. The script will perform the following actions:
Copy the configuration files.
Copy both MGE MIB and Icon files.
Compile and load the MGE MIB.
Load Message Management for Events and Actions.
Modification of the oid_to_sym file for the auto-discovery of EATON UPSs.
• Stop NNM services and HP OpenView console.
• Configure the EATON SNMP cards/agents (described in the following section).
• Perform auto-discovery to detect the EATON SNMP cards/agents.
• Discover your network map using the HP OpenView "IP discovery" feature in order to watch the
EATON SNMP agents.
2.2
Configure the EATON SNMP cards/agents
Each EATON SNMP card or agent must be configured so that the SNMP alarms (Traps) are sent to
the HP OpenView platform. To do this, the HP OpenView host must be declared in the Notified
Application table of each card and proxy. You can use the card Web interface.
On legacy cards (66074, 66244, …) , run the SetSNMPManager.bat script file under "<HP OpenView
installation directory>\bin" directory and follow the instructions.
During the procedure, you will be asked for:
The IP address of your SNMP card or agent,
The IP address of the HP OpenView host,
The read/write community name for the agent (by default "public" if not specified),
The trap receiver community name (by default "public" if not specified).
Repeat these steps for each EATON SNMP card or agent.
NOTE: You also have other possibilities:
• For legacy EATON SNMP cards, you can use the telnet configuration menu. You can also use the
HTML settings page for the "Manager Table" settings.
• Use a MIB browser to configure the SNMP cards and agents.
However, we strongly suggest using the script file as these operations require an in-depth knowledge
of the SNMP protocol and a good understanding of our products.

Manager number = X.
Device number = 0.
Manager type = 9 (other).
Protocol level = 4 (snmpv1).
Manager description = e.g. "HP OpenView"
Manager IP address = YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY format.
Community name = e.g. "public"
Severity level = e.g. 2
Acknoledgement type = 2 (mgnoack).
2.3
Uninstalling the agent
From the "Add/Remove programs" item of the control panel, execute "HP OpenView EATON
Package". This script will perform the following actions:
Remove both configuration files and icons.
Unload the MIB.
Remove Event Message records and actions. Be careful, this operation could take a long time
because each event must be unloaded one at a time.
Important Notes:
During installation, the oid_to_sym file has been saved in HP OpenView directory as
oid_to_sym.eaton before modification. Before initiating uninstallation, be careful that restoring that file
from the saved file available in the HP Openview directory could erase further modification that could
have happened to this file. It is important to compare these two files before running the uninstall
program.

3 Operation
3.1
EATON Automatic discovery (Auto-Discovery)
Any compatible EATON UPS with a SNMP card or a SNMP proxy agent will be automatically
discovered by HP OpenView. For easier identification, each UPS is represented by a specific icon.

3.2
Receive and view UPS alarms
The icon in HP OpenView console represents the communication status between the EATON (with a
SNMP card or SNMP proxy agent) and the HP Openview platform.
Icon
UPS status
Normal. The communication status between the EATON UPS
(with a SNMP card /or SNMP proxy agent) and the HP
Openview platform is normal.
Communication lost between the EATON UPS (with a SNMP
card or SNMP proxy agent) and the HP Openview platform. The
HP OpenView platform cannot reach the EATON (The SNMP
card or SNMP proxy agent doesn't respond to any "ping"
request).
For each alarm (trap) sent by the UPS, a message box is displayed on the HP OpenView platform:
UPS alarm sample
You can check the alarm list for all UPS equipment from the alarm console.
A text message is associated with each trap (alarm or acknowledgement) sent by any UPS. The color
depends on the alarm severity

You can also check the alarm list for one specific UPS. From the HP OpenView console, select your
UPS and right click the Alarms item.

Launching UPS properties from HP OpenView
From the HP OpenView console, you can access the UPS properties Web Page for EATON cards with
an on-board web server (see detailed list in paragraph 3.4). Select your UPS, select the "Monitor" item
and then choose "UPS properties".
