HP UPS Power Protection Agent overview
The HP UPS Power Protection Agent runs on a local or network server and allows the management
module to gracefully shut down the operating system of that server and optionally run a script during
power failure. Install the agent on any machine that is powered by the UPS and any machine that the
management module uses to initiate a command.
NOTE: If you are an existing HP Power Manager user, you must uninstall the HPPM Remote
Agent before installing the UPS Power Protection Agent.
If the UPS Power Protection Agent is not applicable for your load devices, you can use a third-party
SNMP manager to monitor the power protection. For more information, see "SNMP monitoring (on page
111)."

Installing the HP UPS Power Protection Agent
Installation overview
Install the UPS Power Protection Agent on any machine that is powered by the UPS and any machine that
the management module uses to initiate a command. There are three installation options:
•
GUI installation—A series of dialog boxes and prompts guide you through the installation process.
•
Non-GUI installation—A series of commands are necessary to complete the installation.
•
Silent installation—A preconfigured initialization file is specified during installation. This file contains
all the information a user is typically prompted to enter.
Silent installation is typically used by system administrators who have many installations that are
configured identically and require minimal user interaction. During a silent installation you will:
o
Install an agent through the assisted installation method that is appropriate for the operating
system.
o
Configure the agent exactly as the final replicated systems should be configured.
o
Use the DevManRA.ini file that is generated in the directory of the application as a template in
the agent silent install process.
o
Change any items that should be unique, such as the Management Server IP address, through
the normal operation of the software.
The following table summarizes the available installation options for each operating system.

Installing the agent using the silent installation method
Silent installation is typically used by system administrators who have many installations that are
configured identically and require minimal user interaction. During a silent installation you will:
•
Install an agent through the assisted installation method that is appropriate for the operating system.
•
Configure the agent exactly as the final replicated systems should be configured.
NOTE: You must configure the IP address of the management module. Create a DevManRA.ini
file for each site. This points each agent to the correct management module and is the more
secure option.
•
Use the DevManRA.ini file that is generated in the directory of the application as a template in the
agent silent install process.

Browser security alert
Secure browsing requires the use of SSL. SSL is a protocol layer that lies between HTTP and TCP that
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. The encrypted channel ensures integrity of the data
between the web server and the browser, so that data can neither be viewed nor modified while in
transit. The management module uses a system generated and unique key.
An integral part of SSL is a security certificate, which identifies the management module. If your browser
displays a security alert when browsing to the management module, it can be for one of several reasons:
HP UPS Management Module web interface 43
•
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 condition 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.
For more information about security considerations, see "Security considerations overview (on page
110)."

6.
To configure the command procedure SDScript to run at shut down:
a. Select the Run Command Procedure (SDScript)? checkbox.
b. Edit the SDScript file or create a new SDScript file. A sample SDScript file is landed in the root
folder for every agent. The name of the SDScript file must be SDScript.CMD, and this file must
remain in the root folder.
IMPORTANT: SDScript command execution can be a very powerful tool and should be tested
thoroughly before being used for the first time in response to a power event. Not all programs
and applications are suitable to be executed as a process, especially programs that do not
create their own environments. Command execution behavior varies by operating system, and,
in general, commands to be executed should be put into a batch file or shell script depending
on the operating system that will be executing the commands. Using an SDScript gives you
more control over the circumstances in which commands are executed and allows the
commands to run in a copy of the environment.
When selecting commands to be executed in the SDScript file, choose programs and processes
that do not require user input or interaction. Since the commands can be executed at any time,
it is difficult to predict if a user will be available to interact with any programs that are
launched. Verify that specified drive mappings, user specific directories, and programs that
require special rights are accessible by the SDScript file.
Most operating systems have a method for spawning new processes. In Windows operating
systems, commands can be preceded with START, and in most Linux/Unix systems, sh can be
used. When designing your SDScript file, determine which commands require a separate
process and which commands can be run one after another in the same process. Refer to the
documentation that came with your operating system for more information on batch files or
script files.
NOTE: An SDScript cannot be run on a server unless the server has an agent installed. The
SDScript file must reside on the server on which the command will be executed.
HP UPS Management Module web interface 70
NOTE: The management module shuts down the operating system gracefully. Use the SDScript
file for other tasks, such as backing up files to tape or shutting down a database.
c.
Enter the estimated time required to complete the procedure in the Execute Command field.
7.
Select the Run Event Procedure checkbox to execute the event handling script on the server on which
the agent is installed and running. While the SDScript executes during a shutdown event, the
EVScript executes during a UPS event. You can modify the script content to enable actions such as
logging events in the system log and sending messages to a recipient.

down the load segment is equal to the shutdown delay plus the number of minutes required to
shut down the operating system.
o
Maximize Runtime—Select the radio button in the Run Until Battery Depletion column to

Systems Insight Manager integration
Systems Insight Manager overview
Use HP Systems Insight Manager to:
•
Discover management modules. As part of the discovery process, HP SIM can detect an installed
management module. The web interface for the discovered module can be launched from the HP
SIM All Systems page.
•
Receive SNMP traps from the management module. The module can send event-based traps to HP
SIM that include a URL in the trap. This functionality enables administrators to easily launch the web
interface of the module in context. For example, if the management module detects an alarm
condition, the module can send a trap to HP SIM with an attached hyperlink that routes users directly
to the Overview screen for the attached UPS.
•
Conveniently launch the management module web interface from within HP SIM.
o
All Systems page—All discovered management modules appear on the All Systems page. Click
the link in the System Name column to launch a browser session.
o
Event-based trap—A URL is included in each trap to link directly from HP SIM to the Overview
screen for the specific device for which the trap was sent.
Systems Insight Manager integration 107
Discovering the management module
HP SIM automatically detects management modules as part of the device discovery process. If detected, a
hyperlink is included on the HP SIM All Systems page for the UPS on which the management module is
installed. The management module should be installed and running before attempting discovery through
HP SIM.
If the defaults are not used, a new entry can be made to the additionalwsdisc.props file, located in the
CONFIG directory in the HP SIM install directory, to allow HP SIM to correctly discover and identify the
management module. For more information on editing the additionalwsdisc.props file, see the
additionalwsdisc.txt file located in the same directory.
Example: ADDITIONALWSDISC.PROPS file with management module 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 HP SIM 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 Management Module, ,true,false, ,https
The last entry allows HP SIM to detect a management module running on port 1234 and using HTTPS
(Secure Socket Layer protocol).
HP SIM services must be restarted to apply the change.
Configuring HP SIM to receive traps
Before HP SIM can receive traps, the correct MIB file (cpqpower.mib) must be compiled into HP SIM. To
download the HP Power MIB, visit the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/rackandpower).
Systems Insight Manager integration 108
To register the MIB:
1.
Copy the MIB to the HP\Systems Insight Manager\mibs folder.
2.
From the HP\Systems Insight Manager\mibs folder, run mcompile cpqpower.mib from the
command line to compile the new MIB. A new file named cpqpower.cfg is created.
3.
Register the new MIB by entering mxmib -a cpqpower.cfg from the HP\Systems Insight
Manager\mibs command line.
4.
Enter HP\Systems Insight Manager\mibs>mxmib at the command line and verify that the
new MIB is listed.
NOTE: For more information on uploading and registering a MIB in HP SIM, refer to the HP
Systems Insight Manager Technical Reference Guide located on the HP Management CD.
Configuring the management module to send traps
to HP SIM
1.
Add the HP SIM server as an SNMP trap recipient on the SNMP Traps tab (on page 67).
2.
Configure the management module to send alert notifications to HP SIM on the Events tab (on page
65).
Systems Insight Manager integration 109
Security considerations
Security considerations overview
The management module implements strict security for two important reasons:
•
The module manages devices that have the potential to perform operations that are sensitive and
destructive.
•
The management module has browser accessibility.
To better ensure the security of the management module and the devices it manages, consider the
following topics in accordance with your organization's security policies and the environment in which the
module will operate.
•
Remote access to the management module requires a user account. Logging in requires the use of a
user name and password, which should be kept properly secured.
•
Each account can be given different access levels, providing different capabilities. Ensure that the
appropriate access level is granted to users.
•
Browsing to the management module can be done using SSL, which encrypts the data between the
browser and management module. The module is supported by a 128-bit encryption level. SSL also
provides authentication of the management module by means of its digital certificate. Securely
importing this certificate must be done to ensure the identification of the management module.
•
Use a custom SSL certificate that is certified by a third-party SSL authority.
•
Use non-standard ports for the management module web interface.
•
Disable telnet if remote configuration is not used.
•
Disable the web interface if the web interface is not preferred.
Security considerations 110
Optional power monitoring using SNMP
SNMP monitoring
Battery status, power status, events, and traps can be monitored using third-party SNMP managers.
SNMP monitoring supports the RFC-1628 MIB and the HP Power MIB (CPQPOWER.MIB).
Using the SNMP submenu (on page 82):
1.
Configure the third-party SNMP manager to monitor the HP UPS Management Module.
2.
In the third-party SNMP manager, configure the HP UPS Management Module information to be
monitor by the SNMP manager.
