2 Preparing to install HP SMH
You can install HP System Management Homepage (HP SMH) on systems running HP-UX, Linux,
and Windows operating systems.
You can install HP SMH locally using the Windows ProLiant or Integrity Support Pack or the Linux
RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) or remotely with optional preconfiguration using the HP Smart
Update Manager (HPSUM) on Windows or on Linux.
Installation information
•
For HP-UX operating systems
HP SMH is installed or updated using the HP-UX Operating Environment (OE) media or
Applications media. You do not have to configure any settings to run the product.
For HP-UX operating systems, the configuration settings are preserved in the /opt/hpsmh/
conf.common/smhpd.xml file.
To change the default configuration values, type the following command at the root prompt:
/opt/hpsmh/bin/smhconfig
•
For Linux operating systems
HP SMH is installed by an RPM package without asking you to configure any settings. After
the installation is complete, run the script /opt/hp/hpsmh/sbin/smhconfig on a ProLiant
system or /opt/hp/hpsmh/sbin/smhconfig on Itanium-based operating systems to set
the security options used by all HP Web-based Agents on the system. Otherwise, these settings
use default values.
To change the default configuration values, type the following command at the root prompt:
/opt/hp/hpsmh/sbin/smhconfig
•
For Windows operating systems
The configuration settings are carried over from the <System
Drive>:\hp\hpsmh\conf\smhpd.xml file, and the wizard initiates the configuration.
NOTE: libiconv source module is placed in the HP SMH installation directory <System
Drive>:\hp\hpsmh\extras for Windows x64 systems only.
NOTE: If HP SIM is installed after HP SMH is installed, the HP SMH 2048-bit key pair is replaced
with the HP SIM 1024-bit key pair.
You can also install HP SMH on Integrity servers from the HP SmartSetup CD.

Preparing to install HP SMH
3 Installing HP SMH on an HP-UX operating system
System Administration Management tool changes: SAM and HP SMH
The HP-UX System Administration Manager (SAM) is deprecated in HP-UX 11i v3. HP SMH is the
system administration tool for managing HP-UX 11i. HP SMH provides web-based systems
management functionality, at-a-glance monitoring of system component health, and consolidated
log viewing. HP SMH also provides a Terminal User Interface (TUI). SAM continues to provide
access to TUI and X-based interfaces.
Some of the key changes are:
•
The SAM Functional Area Launcher (FAL) is replaced by the HP SMH web-based graphical
user interface (GUI).
•
The enhanced TUI offers improved look and feel, online viewing of manpages, command
previews, and other improvements.
•
For HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31) only, a new command, smh(1m) is introduced (/usr/sbin/
smh). This command is an enhanced version of the sam(1m) command (/usr/sbin/sam).
•
The sam command in /usr/sbin/sam is deprecated. Any invocation of /usr/sbin/sam
will display the deprecation message and launch /usr/sbin/smh.
Installing HP SMH on HP-UX
To install HP SMH on HP-UX, you have several options:
•
Installing from the HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31) OE media (February 2007 and later) and from
the HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31) Applications media (February 2007 and later)
•
Installing from the HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23) OE media (May 2005 and later) and from the
HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23) Applications media (September 2005 and later)
•
Installing from the HP-UX 11i v1 (B.11.11) OE media (September 2005 and later) and from
the HP-UX 11i v1 (B.11.11) Applications media (May 2005 and later)
•
Installing from the HP SMH website, which you can find on the Software Depot home at http://
www.hp.com/go/softwaredepot .
NOTE: After you install HP SMH, it is configured automatically for you. To change the default
configuration settings, go to “Configuring HP SMH” (page 15).

If you do not have these applications on your system, you can use the following resources to install
them before or after you install HP SMH:
•
If you installed or updated HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31) from the media, then the applications were
recommended to install. If you installed or updated HP-UX 11i v1 (B.11.11) or HP-UX 11i v2
(B.11.23) from the media, then the applications were installed by default. See the HP-UX
Installation and Update Guide on the HP Technical Documentation website at:http://
www.hp.com/go/hpux-core-docs for instructions on how to install and update HP-UX, including
recommended and default-installed HP application bundles. See “Installing HP SMH using the
applications media” (page 13).
•
You can use swinstall to install or update the bundles (for example, hpuxwsApache and
hpuxwsTomcat) using the HP-UX 11i v1 (B.11.11), HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23), and HP-UX 11i
v3 (B.11.31) media. See “Installing HP SMH using the applications media” (page 13).
•
You can go to the Software Depot Home at: http://www.hp.com/go/softwaredepot to search
for and download the application bundles. You can then use swinstall to install the
applications. See “Installing HP SMH using the software depot” (page 14).
•
You can also download the bundles to a depot on your network and use Ignite-UX and Software
Distributor to install them. This process is helpful if you need to create one image to install on
multiple operating systems. See the Ignite-UX Administration Guide and the Software Distributor
Administration Guide on the HP Technical Documentation website at http://www.hp.com/
go/hpux-core-docs.
Installing HP SMH using the applications media
To install HP SMH and other HP Applications, you must have root privileges. These instructions
assume you are installing from a DVD.
Installing HP SMH using the applications media
13
1.
Mount the Applications DVD. To install software from the Applications DVD, you must mount
the DVD as a file system that HP-UX 11i can access:
a. Determine the DVD device name.
Use the ioscan -funC disk command to list disk devices, including the DVD devices.
b.
If one does not exist, create a mount point for the Applications DVD.
The mount point is a directory that HP-UX uses as an access point for the DVD. Often a
/cdrom directory is used. If this directory does not exist, create it using the mkdir
command.
c.
Using the mount command, specify the DVD device name and mount point. For example,
the following command mounts the /dev/dsk/c1t0d0 device as the /cdrom directory:
mount /dev/dsk/c1t0d0 /cdrom
See the mount(1M) manpage for details.
2.
3.
Determine which products and versions are on your system, using the swlist command:
/usr/sbin/swlist -l product
Install software from the Applications DVD using the swinstall.
The following example uses swinstall to install software from the source mounted at /cdrom:
/usr/sbin/swinstall -s /cdrom bundlename
See the swinstall(1M) manpage for details.
4.
Select and install software from the Applications DVD.
The swinstall program has an interface for selecting and installing software from the DVD.
5.
Unmount and eject the Applications DVD.
You must unmount the DVD before you can eject it from the DVD-ROM drive. The DVD

Installing HP SMH on an HP-UX operating system
NOTE: When HP SMH is installed, the user hpsmh and group hpsmh is automatically added to
the /etc/passwd file. If you are using LDAP or any other network service to manage user and
group accounts, there might be a possibility that the user ID (UID) and the group ID (GID) is already
in use by the LDAP users, which can be confusing. The problem occurs in HP-UX 11i v3 on Integrity
systems.
To overcome this, add a local hpsmh user and group using a unique UID and GID (IDs not in use
by LDAP or the other network services) manually before installing the HP SMH.

Determine the available reserved IDs for the group (for example, 130) and the user (for
example, 125).
Add the group using the command /usr/sbin/groupadd -g 130 hpsmh.
Add the user using the command /usr/sbin/useradd -u 125 -g hpsmh
-d/var/opt/hpsmh \ -c "System Management Homepage" hpsmh.
Add the group using the command /usr/sbin/groupadd -g 130 hpsmh.
Add the user using the command /usr/sbin/useradd -u 125 -g hpsmh -d
/var/opt/hpsmh \ -c "System Management Homepage" hpsmh.
Configuring HP SMH
The HP SMH configuration is based on environment variables and tags that are set by the following
files:
•
/opt/hpsmh/lbin/envvars
•
/opt/hpsmh/conf.common/smhpd.xml
•
/opt/hpsmh/conf/timeout.conf
•
CLI smhconfig tool located at /opt/hpsmh/bin
To change the default configuration, you can modify the files to set the value of the variables and
tags described in Table 2 (page 15) table.
Table 2 Variables and tags
Variable
JAVA_HOME
Description
This variable points to the /opt/
hpsmh/lbin/envvars directory
where JDK is installed.
Script
/opt/hpsmh/lbin/envvars
<session-timeout>15</session-timeout> The <session-timeout> tag defines the /opt/hpsmh/conf.common/
HP SMH session timeout in minutes. If smhpd.xml
it is defined, then the HP SMH session
stops after the time period has elapsed
without any user activity. If it is not
defined, then the default for the HP
SMH session timeout is 15 minutes.
You can define the <session-timeout>
tag using any value between 6 and
120 minutes.
TIMEOUT_SMH
The TIMEOUT_SMH environment
/opt/hpsmh/conf/timeout.conf
variable defines the HP SMH server
timeout in minutes. If it is defined and
lower than the HP SMH session
timeout, the HP SMH server stops 3
minutes after the HP SMH session
timeout. If it is defined and greater
than the HP SMH session timeout, then
the HP SMH server stops after the time
period has elapsed without any user
activity. If it is not defined or equal to
zero, then HP SMH starts without

timeout. When the "automatic startup
on boot" startup mode is in use, the
timeout mechanism does not start.
TIMEOUT_TOMCAT
This variable defines the Tomcat
/opt/hpsmh/conf/timeout.conf
timeout in minutes in the /opt/
hpsmh/conf/timeout.conf file.
If it is defined, Tomcat istops after this
time period has elapsed without any
request to a Java web application. By
default, the timeout for the HP-UX
Tomcat-based Servlet Engine is 20
minutes and the timeout for the HP-UX
Apache-based Web Server is 30
minutes. If it is not defined or equal to
zero, then Tomcat starts without
timeout. In this case, Tomcat stops only
when HP SMH is stopped.
TOMCAT_PORT (HP-UX 11i v3)
With HP SMH running on Apache
2.2, this parameter defines the port
used for communication between the
Apache server and the Tomcat server.
The default value is 1188.
TOMCAT_PORT=1188
/opt/hpsmh/tomcat/conf/tomcat.conf
/opt/hpsmh/tomcat/conf/server.xml
NOTE: The value of the Connector
port in the /opt/hpsmh/tomcat/
conf/server.xml file should match
the port number mentioned in the
/opt/hpsmh/tomcat/conf/
tomcat.conf file for successful
communication between the HP SMH
Apache and Tomcat process. Restart
the HP SMH process whenever there is
a change in this port value.
Configuring the startup mode
HP SMH supports three startup modes:
•
Autostart URL
This mode is the default setting. You can start HP SMH by using a web browser and navigating
to http://hostname:2301/. If autostart is the default, a daemon listens on
http://hostname:2301 only (nothing listens on port 2381, so that port fails). When it contacts
port 2301 (http), then the HP-UX Apache-based Web Server starts on port 2381 (https), and
the page redirects.
•
Automatic startup on boot
This mode starts HP SMH automatically during system initialization. If the automatic startup
on boot start mode is enabled and the system was rebooted using this configuration, you can
access HP SMH using a web browser and navigating to https://hostname:2381/.
Daemons listen on both http://hostname:2301/ and https://hostname:2381/. If you use
port 2301 (http), then the HP-UX Apache-based Web Server starts on port 2381 (https), and
the page automatically redirects.
16
Installing HP SMH on an HP-UX operating system
NOTE: For autostart URL and automatic startup on boot, you can use http://hostname:2301.
This is possible on an HP-UX operating system only.
•
Manual startup
◦
You can start HP SMH from the HP-UX CLI.
Configure the startup mode of the HP SMH server and the Tomcat instance using /opt/
hpsmh/bin/smhstartconfig script.
Syntax: smhstartconfig [ -a {on|off} -b {on|off} ] [ -t {on|off}
]
Options:
◦
-a {on|off}
Enable or disable the autostart URL mode.
-b {on|off}
Enable or disable the automatic startup on boot mode.
-t {on|off}
Set the Tomcat startup mode where:
on
Starts Tomcat when HP SMH starts.
off
Starts Tomcat on demand (default).
You can start HP SMH from the HP-UX CLI.
To configure the Apache version to be used by the HP SMH (HP-UX 11i v3), execute the
following script.
smhstartconfig -v {2.0|2.2}
where, selecting:
–
2.2 starts HP SMH with Apache 2.2
–
2.0 starts HP SMH with Apache 2.0
If you do not specify an option, then smhstartconfig displays the current startup mode.
The smhstartconfig command does not accept -a on and -b on options simultaneously.
For more information, see the smhstartconfig(1M) manpage:
man smhstartconfig or man sam
After changing the autostart mode to "on boot" (with the smhstartconfig -b on -a
off command), you can start the HP-UX Apache-based Web Server processes with the
/opt/hpsmh/lbin/hpsmh start command without rebooting.
Disabling port 2301
You can disable port 2301. In the smhpd.xml file the <port2301> tag by default is set to True.
To disable port 2301, you must set the value to False. You can use the smhconfig command to
modify the configuration.
For more information about using the smhconfig command, see the smhconfig(1M) manpage.

•
Trust By Name
1. Select Trust By Name.
2. Click Next. The Trusted Server dialog box appears.
Note: Although the Trust By Name mode is a slightly better security method than the
Trust All mode, your system is still vulnerable to security attacks. The Trust By Name
mode sets up HP SMH to accept only certain requests from servers with the HP SIM
certificate names designated in the Trust By Name field. The Trust By Name option
is easy to configure and can prevent unauthorized access. For example, you might
want to use the Trust By Name option if you have a secure network, but your network
has two groups of administrators in two separate divisions. The Trust By Name option
would prevent one group from installing software on the wrong system. This option
does not verify anything other than the HP SIM certificate name submitted.

5 Installing HP SMH using HPSUM
The HP Smart Update Manager (HPSUM) utility enables you to deploy ProLiant or Integrity Support
Pack software and firmware components from a single, easy-to-use graphical user interface. The
utility enables you to deploy and maintain ProLiant or Integrity Support Pack and Smart Components
on a local server or one or more remote servers. This utility enables legacy support of existing
software and firmware components while simplifying the overall deployment process. The utility
also provides installation logic and version control that automatically check for dependencies,
installing only the correct updates for optimal configuration.
ProLiant or Integrity Support Pack contains numerous files. All files must be present in the same
directory as the HPSUM.EXE program for the SPP or ISP to be properly installed. You can install
HP SMH as a part of the complete ProLiant or Integrity Support Pack, or you can install the HP
SMH component individually. The HP SMH component also provides support for preconfiguration,
which enables you to configure and save the configuration as part of the component itself before
installing on target machines.
NOTE: Installation of a preconfigured component overwrites the configuration settings of an
existing HP SMH installation. If you want to retain existing settings, do not preconfigure the
component.

6 Installing HP SMH directly on Linux operating systems
Installation for Linux on x86 and x86_64 operating systems
The HP SMH installation for Linux enables you to silently install HP SMH on x86 and x86_64
operating systems. After the installation is complete, you can configure the HP SMH settings.
NOTE:
To install HP SMH, you must log in as root user.
NOTE: HP SMH already uses the user and group name hpsmh. Do not use the hpsmh user and
group name for any other purpose.
Installing HP SMH on Linux x86 operating systems
To install HP SMH on x86 operating systems, your system must meet the minimum requirements.
In addition, you must have the hpsmh-7.x.x-y.i386.rpm.
Note: The general 32-bit RPM List is not installed by default.
To install HP SMH, enter the following command line:
rpm -ivh hpsmh-7.x.x-y.i386.rpm
A message appears indicating that HP SMH installed successfully with default configuration values.
For more information regarding minimum requirements, see “Installation requirements” (page 5).
Installing HP SMH on x86_64 operating systems
To install HP SMH on x86_64 operating systems, your system must meet the minimum requirements.
In addition, you must have the hpsmh-7.x.x-y.x86_64.rpm
NOTE: While installing or uninstalling HP SMH manually, insserv: warning: script
'SCRIPT NAME' missing LSB tags and overrides may be generated (in newer version
of the servers, for example: Novell/SUSE Linux), however, these warnings do not impact HP SMH
functionality or its installation or uninstallation.
If you wish to avoid such warnings, edit the INIT INFO block of the particular init script <SCRIPT
NAME> per the corresponding operating system requirement.
rpm -ivh hpsmh-7.x.x-y.x86_64.rpm
hpsmh-User/Group policies
On Linux operating systems, the web server runs as a particular user (hpsmh) and does not have
administrative access. The webapp can set the uid bits appropriately during installation and setuid
at runtime to gain administrative access, if necessary. When HP SMH is installed, the user hpsmh
and the group hpsmh are automatically added to the /etc/passwd file.
50
Installing HP SMH directly on Linux operating systems
NOTE: If the user ID (UID) and the group ID (GID) are already being used by the LDAP users,
there may be a conflict when you use LDAP or any other network service to manage user and
group accounts. To avoid this conflict, add a local hpsmh user and group using a unique UID and
GID (IDs not in use by LDAP or the other network services) manually before installing the HP SMH.
1.
2.
Determine the available reserved IDs for the group (for example: 130) and for the user (for
example: 125).
Add the group running the command:
/usr/sbin/groupadd -g 130 hpsmh
3.
Add the user running the command:
/usr/sbin/useradd -u 125 -g hpsmh -d/var/opt/hpsmh -c "System
Management Homepage" hpsmh
NOTE: With the SMH rpm upgrade, you can retain hpsmh users entries in /etc/passwd and
/etc/group files while SMH rpm uninstallation removes all hpsmh entries from the corresponding
files.
Configuring HP SMH
After the HP SMH is installed, you can configure the settings. If you are migrating from a version
of HP SMH prior to 3.0, the previous settings are retained. However, the retained settings are
configurable.
To configure the HP SMH settings:
1. Use the CLI smhconfig tool located at /opt/hp/hpsmh/sbin.
2. Enter the following command to start the configuration: /opt/hp/hpsmh/sbin/smhconfig
Configuring HP SMH

7 Initializing the software for the first time
After you have installed and configured HP SMH for the first time, a process to create a private
key and corresponding self-signed Base64-encoded certificate is initiated. This certificate is a
Base64-encoded PEM file.
NOTE:
SMH supports certificates in Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM) format only.
Key and certificate information
•
In HP-UX operating systems, both public and private keys for HP SMH are stored in the /var/
opt/hpsmh/sslshare directory. The files are called file.pem (private key) and cert.pem
(server certificate).
With HP SMH running on Apache 2.2 (HP-UX 11iv3), the Apache Tomcat communication
requires certificate-based authentication through https connection on port 1188 (by default).
The certificate /var/opt/hpsmh/sslshare/proxy.pem, generated during installation,
is used for this purpose. For effective Apache Tomcat communication required to launch the
Java plug-ins, do not alter this certificate on the system.
•
In Linux operating systems, both public and private keys for HP SMH are stored in the /etc/
opt/hp/sslshare directory. The files are called file.pem and cert.pem.
•
In Windows operating systems, public and private keys are stored in the <System
Drive>:\hp\sslshare directory of the system drive.
To protect the keys, this subdirectory is only accessible to administrators if the file system allows
such security. For private key security reasons, HP recommends that you install Windows
installations of HP SMH on New Technology File System (NTFS).
IMPORTANT: For Windows operating systems, the file system must use NTFS for the private key
to have administrator only access through the file.
If the private key is compromised, you can delete the <System
Drive>:\hp\sslshare\cert.pem file and restart the server. This action causes HP SMH to
generate a new certificate and private key.
NOTE: Certificate and private key generation occurs only the first time HP SMH starts or when
no certificate and key pair exists.
A certificate from a certificate authority (CA), such as Verisign or Entrust, can replace self-generated
certificates. These certificate and key files are shared with other HP Management software, such
as HP SIM.

you can use the following URL: http://hostname:2301/
NOTE: You can also use the port 1188 to access HP SMH. This port is used by the Tomcat
instance of the HP SMH.
By default, HP-UX is installed with the autostart feature enabled. A daemon listens on port
2301 and only starts HP SMH on port 2381 when requested, then stops it again after a
timeout period. See the smhstartconfig(1M) command for more information.
The first time you browse to this link, the Security Alert dialog box appears, asking you to
indicate whether to trust the server. If you do not import the certificate, the Security Alert
appears every time you browse to HP SMH.
If you want to implement your own Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) or install your own generated
certificates into each managed system, you can install a certificate authority root certificate
into each browser to be used for management. If this is implemented, the Security Alert dialog
box does not appear. If the alert appears when you do not expect it, you might have browsed
to the wrong system. You can refer to the online help in your browser for more information
about installing the certificate authority root certificate.

HP Insight Remote Support software
HP strongly recommends that you install HP Insight Remote Support software to complete the
installation or upgrade of your product and to enable enhanced delivery of your HP Warranty,
HP Care Pack Service or HP contractual support agreement. HP Insight Remote Support supplements
your monitoring, 24x7 to ensure maximum system availability by providing intelligent event
diagnosis, and automatic, secure submission of hardware event notifications to HP, which will
initiate a fast and accurate resolution, based on your product's service level. Notifications may be
sent to your authorized HP Channel Partner for on-site service, if configured and available in your
country. The software is available in two variants:
•
HP Insight Remote Support Standard: This software supports server and storage devices and
is optimized for environments with 1-50 servers. Ideal for customers who can benefit from
proactive notification, but do not need proactive service delivery and integration with a
management platform.
•
HP Insight Remote Support Advanced: This software provides comprehensive remote monitoring
and proactive service support for nearly all HP servers, storage, network, and SAN
environments, plus selected non-HP servers that have a support obligation with HP. It is
integrated with HP Systems Insight Manager. A dedicated server is recommended to host both
HP Systems Insight Manager and HP Insight Remote Support Advanced.
Details for both versions are available at:
http://www.hp.com/go/insightremotesupport
To download the software, go to Software Depot:
