Overview
Introduction
HP Power Manager (HPPM) is software that enables users to monitor, manage, and control
power environments through comprehensive control of individual HP Uninterruptible Power
Systems (UPSs). A familiar browser interface provides secure remote access to Management
Servers anywhere on the network. HPPM allows users to schedule system shutdowns, control
power failure settings, and define UPS load segments to allow for maximum uptime of
critical servers.
Use HPPM to monitor, manage, and control:
•
HP Tower UPSs: UPS T700, UPS T1000 XR, UPS T1500 XR, UPS T2200 XR
•
HP Rack UPSs: UPS R1500 XR, UPS R3000 XR, UPS R6000, UPS R12000 XR
HPPM software can be configured to send alert traps to Insight Manager 7 or other
SNMP-management programs or run as a stand-alone power management system. This
flexibility allows you to monitor, manage, and control the power environments of HP Six
Port Card and single, serially attached UPSs, regardless of the system management method.
To facilitate day-to-day maintenance tasks, the software provides detailed system logs and
system diagnostics, including UPS battery checks.
HP Power Manager 3.0 User Guide
1-1
Overview
Use HPPM to:
•
Customize alerts
— Send e-mail notification messages
— Send broadcast notification messages
— Send SNMP traps
— Issue computer commands at power failure
•
Monitor, manage, and control UPSs
— Manage a graceful shutdown of attached equipment during utility power failures
— Manage independent UPS load segments to provide separate power control of
connected equipment
— Prioritize the timing of equipment shutdowns and reboot connected equipment by
load segment
— Delay restart by load segment after a power outage to sequence the startup of system
components
— Display logs for analysis
— Monitor the status of UPSs and perform diagnostics
— Communicate with single serial cards (RS-232) and multi-server serial cards
(Six Port Card)
HPPM Overview
HPPM is a Web-based application that lets administrators manage an HP UPS from a
browser-based management console. Administrators can monitor, manage, and control each
UPS both locally and remotely.
During a utility power failure, the UPS switches to battery mode. HPPM can issue an e-mail
alert to the system administrator and begin a prioritized system shutdown based on
user-defined settings for that specific UPS. After power is restored, HPPM can facilitate a
prioritized power up for connected equipment.
The UPS can be configured to extend runtimes for critical devices during utility power
failures. For most UPSs, the receptacles on the rear panel can be divided into two or more
groups, called load segments, which can be controlled independently. By shutting down a
load segment that is connected to less critical equipment, the runtime for more critical
equipment is extended, providing additional protection.

One Management Server is needed for each UPS that is monitored, managed, and controlled
by HPPM. This server must be serially connected to the UPS. Specific features of the
Management Server include:
•
Controlling security and authentication, such as:
— Supporting multiple users and associating each login with specific device access
(access categories are regular user and administrator)
— Providing the option of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) security
•
Performing specified actions when alarms are set or cleared. The following unattended
actions are supported:
— Sending e-mail notifications, broadcast messages, and SNMP traps
— Executing system batch jobs during shutdown (on Management Server or Remote
Agent)
— Performing operating system shutdown
— Shutting down and restarting by load segment, if applicable
— Performing UPS shutdown
•
Performing a graceful, remote shutdown of the local operating system after a specified
delay
NOTE: System hibernation (if supported by the operating system) is used to allow the system to
be restored to its same state when the power returns.
•
Maintaining event logs. Logs include the following types:
— UPS event log, which contains UPS-related events, such as the UPS going on battery
— Application event log, which contains application-related events, such as failed
logins or settings changes

HP Power Manager 3.0 User Guide
Overview
The Management Server runs on the following operating systems:
•
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server with Service Pack 6
•
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server with Service Pack 3
•
RedHat Linux 7.3, 8.0
®
®
®
IMPORTANT: Power protection for the Management Server is essential. The Management Server is
the central point of control of the power management environment. If the Management Server goes
down, the ability to gracefully shut down attached servers is lost.
Remote Agent
The Management Server provides both status and shutdown information to the Remote
Agent. The Remote Agent runs on a server and allows HPPM to gracefully shut down the
operating system of that server and issue computer commands during power failure. Install
the Remote Agent on any server that is powered by the UPS and on any server that HPPM
uses to initiate a command.
The Remote Agent runs on the following operating systems:
•
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server with Service Pack 6
•
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server with Service Pack 3
•
RedHat Linux 7.3, 8.0
•
Novell NetWare 5.1 with Support Pack 5
•
Novell NetWare 6.0 with Support Pack 2
Supported Hardware Configurations
HPPM requires that the Management Server be connected to the network. UPSs can be
attached in any of the following configurations:
•
Configuration A—One UPS is serially attached to a Management Server.
•
Configuration B—Several Management Servers are serially attached to a Six Port Card
on a single UPS.
•

Installation Overview
A graphical or command line installer is used for installing HPPM on Windows operating
systems. A script is used for installing HPPM on Linux operating systems. You have the
option to install either the Management Server or the Remote Agent. Follow these guidelines
when installing the components:
2-2
•
Management Server—Install the Management Server on the computer that is serially
attached to the UPS and responsible for managing other systems and devices connected
to the UPS.
•
Remote Agent—Install the Remote Agent on any computer that is powered by the UPS.
HP Power Manager 3.0 User Guide
Installation
For each component of HPPM, there are three installation options:
•
Graphical user interface (GUI) installation—A series of dialog boxes and prompts guide
you through the installation process.
•
Command line installation—A series of commands are necessary to complete the
installation.
•
Silent installation—Specify a preconfigured initialization file during installation. This file
is placed into the proper directory, and you are not prompted for any information.
Silent installation is typically used by system administrators that have many installations
that are configured identically and require minimal user interaction. To use this method in
HPPM:
a. Install an HP Power Management Server or Remote Agent through the assisted
installation method that is appropriate for the operating system.
b. Configure the server or agent exactly as the final replicated systems should be
configured. Use the exact same UPS model and thoroughly test the configuration,
including any alarm or notification events.
c. Use the .INI file that is generated in the directory of the application as a template in
the Silent install process.
d. Change any items that should be unique, such as Device Name, Management Server
Name, or Remote Agent Name, through the normal operation of HPPM.
A user setup program is launched automatically when the installation is complete.
Table 2-3 summarizes the available installation options for each operating system.

Regarding the Browser Security Alert
NOTE: The information in this section is only applicable if SSL is chosen during software installation.
Secure browsing to HPPM requires the use of SSL. SSL is a protocol layer that lies between
HTTP and TCP. It provides secure communication between a server and a client and is
designed to provide privacy and message integrity. SSL is commonly used in Web-based
transactions to authenticate the Web server, which indisputably identifies the server to the
browser. SSL also provides an encrypted channel of communication between the server and
the browser. This ensures integrity of the data between the Web server and the browser, so
that data can neither be viewed nor modified while in transit. HPPM uses a system generated
and unique key.
An integral part of SSL is a security certificate, which identifies the HPPM Management
Server. If your browser displays a security alert when browsing to HPPM, it can be for one of
several reasons:
3-2
•
The certificate is untrusted, meaning it was signed by a certifying authority that is
unknown to your browser.
•
The certificate has expired or is not yet valid. This can occur if you issue your own
certificate and it has expired.
•
The name on the certificate does not match the name of the site in the browser address
field.

5. Click Save Changes to save the information.
IMPORTANT: Any computer running Linux that is sending or receiving broadcasts must have the
Samba packages installed, configured, and running. If the computer running Linux is to receive
broadcasts, Samba must be told how to display the received message by adding a message command
statement to the Global Settings section of the SMB.CONF file, such as the following:
message command = /bin/csh -c 'cat %s | wall; rm %s' &
This statement tells Samba to route the broadcast message to the wall command, which displays the
message on the system (either in a terminal window, at the console, or in a pop-up message,
depending on the display environment), then delete the message. The Samba processes must be
restarted after editing the SMB.CONF file to enable the changes. For more information, refer to the
Samba documentation at www.samba.org.
In addition, for a Linux Management Server to send broadcasts to either Windows or Linux systems (or
both), entries must be added to the /etc/hosts file on the Management Server for each host name
to which it broadcasts.
For example, to broadcast from a Linux Management Server to a Windows workstation named “george”
at IP address 143.85.41.121, add the following line to the hosts file:

Suggested Action
You cannot access HPPM
after installation.
You exited the system
tray icon in Windows and
need to restart the
HPPM icon.
From the Start menu, select
Programs>HP Power Manager>HP
Power Manager Status.
You need the SNMP MIB
file for HPPM.
The file is named CPQRPM.MIB and
should be version 1.5 or greater. The file
can be found on the HP Rack and
Management Pack CD and in the install
folder of the HPPM Management Server.
This MIB is shared with other HP power
management applications such as HP
Rack and Power Manager.
You chose an HTTP port
number other than the
default (80) during
installation.
Be sure to include this port number when
browsing to HPPM. For example, if you
chose port 1234 during installation, then
you would enter the following in your
browser for HPPM access:
http://hostname:1234
Note: hostname can be either a machine
name or an IP address.
Other Web servers or
Web-based applications
are running on the same
port.
Do one of the following:
•
Make sure that no other Web
servers or Web-based applications
are running on the same port.
•
Try using another port during
installation or reconfiguration.
For a list of the Well Known Port
Numbers that could be in use, refer to

Input (Utility) fault: Measured input voltage is less than the lower
voltage limit specification for normal operation.
Input (Utility) fault: Measured input frequency is outside either the
upper or lower frequency limit specification for normal operation.
Rectifier fault: Measured rectifier input current exceeds the upper
current limit specification for normal operation.
The utility input power is not within predetermined limits. This is
possibly due to over voltage, under voltage, over frequency, under
frequency, or over current.
The utility input is not present, and detected voltage is zero.
Internal Failure
An attempt to automatically recalibrate the UPS has failed.
Charger fault: The battery charger has failed.
DC Link fault: Measured DC link voltage has exceeded the upper
voltage limit specification for normal operation.
At least one fan in the UPS has failed.
At least one fuse in the UPS has failed and must be replaced.
Inverter fault: Measured inverter output voltage has exceeded the
upper voltage limit specification for normal operation.
Inverter fault: Measured inverter output voltage is less than the
lower voltage limit specification for normal operation.
The inverter module has failed its power up self-test or its
continuous self-test.
Inverter fault: The inverter has failed.
The inverter output has failed, and cannot support the load. The
reasons for this alarm are, for example: inverter over or under
voltage, over or under frequency, distorted waveform, and output
out-of window.
Inverter fault: The measured inverter output current exceeds the
upper current limit specification for normal operation.
The inverter output voltage sensor has not been calibrated.
For a parallel system, this module has detected that the sync bus is
not active.

Alarm Text
Description
Internal Failure, continued
A test of the device EEPROM has detected a checksum failure.
The device either has not been programmed or contains suspicious
data.
A test of the device ROM has detected a checksum or CRC error.
The device’s operating code is suspicious and should be replaced
or reflashed.
In a multi-module system or internally to a UPS with multiple
controllers, the firmware versions in place are not compatible with
each other.
Manual Load Dumped
The load power is off. This alarm is used to record the date and
time of an emergency power off (EPO) event.
On Battery
The UPS is using the battery to power the load.
Output Out of Range
Measured output voltage has exceeded the upper voltage limit
specification for normal operation.
Measured output voltage is less than the lower voltage limit
specification for normal operation.
Measured output frequency is outside the upper or lower frequency
limit specification for normal operation.
Overload
Overload alarms are sent based on the individual UPS model
overload protection specifications that are available in the UPS
documentation.
The load on the UPS output phase exceeds its rated current or
power by more than a small margin over 100%. The inverter can
only sustain this overload for a short time without shutting down
due to overheating.
Shutdown Imminent
The UPS has entered a state where it might abruptly shut down
without further notice. It might continue to operate indefinitely, even
with this alarm being asserted.
Shutdown Pending
A condition in the UPS will lead to the loss of power to the loads in
less than the Low Battery Time, unless the condition is cleared or
removed.
Site Wiring Fault
There is a fault in the input wiring, other than Phase Rotation (for
example, Ground/Neutral reversed).
Temperature Out of Range
An ambient temperature probe has detected that the temperature is
above its upper limit.
A heatsink at an unspecified location in the UPS has failed.
An input or output transformer used by the UPS has exceeded its
upper temperature limit.
UPS Started On Battery
HP Power Manager 3.0 User Guide
The UPS has been started on battery when AC input power is not
present. This alarm is used to record the date and time of this
event.

Using HPPM with Insight Manager 7
HPPM software can be configured to send alert traps to Insight Manager 7, as well as other
SNMP management applications. To send event alert traps to Insight Manager 7:
•
Configure Insight Manager 7 to receive a trap from HPPM.
•
Configure HPPM to send the appropriate event alert traps.
If HPPM is installed using the default HTTP on Port 80, a link to the software is displayed on
the device home page in Insight Manager 7 SP2 for the computer with HPPM.
If the defaults are not used, a new entry can be made to the additionalwsdisc.props file
located in the CONFIG directory in the Insight Manager 7 install directory to correctly
discover and identify HPPM running on any computer. Beginning with the SP2 release,
Insight Manager 7 is installed in the C:\Program Files\HP\Insight Manager 7 directory by
default. For more information on editing the additionalwsdisc.props file, refer to the
additionalwsdisc.txt file located in the same directory.
Example B-1: ADDITIONALWSDISC.PROPS file with HPPM Entry
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------# Additional Web Server Discovery Properties
#
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------# NOTE: See "additionalWsDisc_README.txt" for a description of entries in
# this file and how to add or remove additional web server ports used for
# discovery and identification.
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------#
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------# The following are actual web server ports enabled by default.
# To remove them from the discovery process, comment out the line with a '#'
# or remove it. You will need to restart the Insight Manager 7 service for
# the changes to take effect. In addition you will need to run the Device
# Identification task to find any new ports that were defined.
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------411=Director Agent, ,true,false, ,http
3201=Compaq TaskSmart, ,true,false, ,https
8008=Default Home Page, ,true,false, ,http
1311=Server Administrator, ,true,false, ,https
1234=HP Power Manager, ,true,false, ,https
The last entry allows Insight Manager 7 to detect HPPM installations that are running on
Port 1234 and that are using HTTPS (Secure Socket Layer Protocol).
