New and deprecated support
2 Central Management Server requirements
This chapter provides the minimum hardware and software requirements for a CMS running a
supported Microsoft Windows operating system (OS).
CMS hardware requirements
Table 3 (page 7) lists the hardware requirements for a single-server CMS.
Table 3 CMS hardware requirements
Hardware
component
Server
Requirement
Any supported HP ProLiant server that fulfills the CPU, memory, and disk space requirements specified
in this chapter.
HP Systems Insight Manager, HP Insight Control virtual machine management, and the HP Matrix
Operating Environment (Matrix OE) also support operating a CMS in a virtual machine on some
non-HP servers. This configuration requires the CMS to be running a supported operating system
listed in“Supported Microsoft Windows operating systems” (page 10) and a supported hypervisor
listed in “Supported hypervisors” (page 12).
Processor
At least 1.6 GHz (2 GHz or faster recommended).
For Matrix OE, four or more processing cores are required with a minimum of 1.6 GHz processors.
The recommended configuration is eight processing cores at 2.4 GHz or later.
For HP Insight Remote Support, a 2.4 GHz processor is required to manage up to 500 devices.
Memory
For memory requirements, see Table 4 (page 7).
Disk space
For disk space requirements, see Table 5 (page 8).
File structure
NTFS
DVD drive
Local or mapped DVD drive or an ISO mounting utility
NOTE: For the requirements for configuring the CMS as a two-node Failover Cluster , see “Central
Management Server requirements in a high-availability environment” (page 19).
For the requirements for an Integrity-based CMS running an HP-UX OS, see “HP-UX CMS
requirements” (page 75).
Memory requirements
Table 4 (page 7) lists the memory requirements on the CMS, which differ for 32-bit (x86) and
64-bit (x64) operating systems and differ based on whether Matrix OE is being installed.

A warning message displays if the amount of memory is below this value, but the installation or upgrade will continue.
However, the physical memory (RAM) on a CMS must equal at least 4 GB on an x86 system or at least 6 GB on an x64
system, otherwise the HP Insight Management installation or upgrade will not proceed.
Performance will be less than optimal if the CMS does not have the recommended amount of memory.
NOTE: HP Insight Remote Support requires a minimum of 5 GB RAM (6 GB is recommended) to
manage up to 100 devices. It requires 8 GB RAM to manage up to 500 devices.
Disk space requirements
Table 5 (page 8) lists the amount of available disk space on the CMS that is required to install
or upgrade Insight Management. The amount of available disk space depends on the software
products you select as well as the type of installation that is being performed (that is, a new
installation of a product, an upgrade of an existing product, or reuse of the same version of an
existing installed product).
If you are installing Insight Management on an alternate drive (that is, not the system drive where
the OS is installed), the HP Insight Management Installer needs an additional 8 GB of temp space.
The Insight Management Installer looks in the User temp location, so if an additional 8 GB is not
available, change the User temp variable to point to another location that has 8 GB of available
space. However, when you are installing on an alternate drive, the system drive still needs at least
1 GB of available disk space.
IMPORTANT: For an upgrade, the required disk space must be available on the original installation
drive. Be sure to check requirements before you begin an upgrade, because you might need to
expand the available space.
Table 5 CMS disk space requirements
Installation scenario
Required
disk space
Upgrade or reuse of all currently installed instances of Insight Management
10 GB
Upgrade or reuse of Systems Insight Manager and Insight Control server deployment in combination
with new installations or upgrades of other products. The Insight Management Installer dynamically
calculates the disk space requirements based on the component selections.
15 GB
New installation of Systems Insight Manager or new installation of Insight Control server deployment
(but not simultaneously) in combination with new installations or upgrades of other products.
18 GB
New installation from Insight Management DVD.
20 GB
Table 6 (page 8) lists additional disk space considerations.
Table 6 CMS disk space considerations
Software component
Disk space requirement
Insight Control power management Disk space is consumed by the storage of power history data for each supported
system. HP recommends allocating 12 MB per system per year of history.
For example, a total of 2000 power managed systems, monitored PDUs/PDRs,
and associated racks and data centers consume approximately 24 GB of disk
space for one year of power history data.
This disk space is consumed on the Microsoft SQL Server database server.
8
Insight Control server deployment
The recommended disk space listed in Table 5 (page 8) accounts for three
operating systems to copy. If you want to copy more than three operating systems,
each additional OS needs approximately 4 GB of disk space.
HP Capacity Advisor
Additional disk space is required for each workload to collect and preserve data
for use by HP Capacity Advisor.
Central Management Server requirements
Table 6 CMS disk space considerations (continued)
Software component
Disk space requirement
For the default retention period of four years:
• Allocate 64.5 MB for each workload on each Windows or Linux managed
system to support agentless data collection.
• Allot 34.7 MB for each workload on each HP-UX managed system.
HP Global Workload Manager
(gWLM)
Requires at least 1 GB of disk space.
If you intend to keep historical data, HP recommends allowing 4 GB for every
100 workloads managed by the Global Workload Manager.
If you are not interested in historical data, use the gwlm history --truncate
command to trim the historical database.
This space will be allocated on the Microsoft SQL Server database server.
HP Insight Remote Support
For managing up to 100 devices:
• 1 GB free disk space for normal operation
• 2 GB available disk space to install all software components
For managing up to 500 devices:
• 150 GB for normal operation
For recommendations on increased disk space requirements depending on how
many devices you are managing, see the HP Insight Remote Support Release

Management capabilities of a CMS with a maximum tested configuration
Table 7 (page 9) lists the management capabilities supported by the recommended x64 CMS
configuration that is running eight processing cores at 2.4 GHz with 24 GB RAM and 50 GB disk
space and a separate remote database server that is running with eight processing cores at 2.4
GHz with 16 GB RAM and 50 GB of disk space.

For Insight Control power management to operate properly, you must install the SSL certificate. If you do not install the
certificate, and you see a pop-up window with a warning, expand the window and select Continue to this website (not
recommended).
For browser compatibility with Virtual Connect firmware, see the HP Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager User Guide at
the following website: http://www.hp.com/go/insightmanagement/sim/docs
This browser is not supported for Insight Control server deployment.

7
Insight Control server deployment does not support Firefox.
Recommended screen resolution
The minimum supported screen resolution on the CMS is 800x600 pixels, but HP recommends
1280x1024.
Supported databases
Insight Management requires a supported database for the CMS. If the CMS does not currently
have a supported database installed on it or does not have access to a remote database, you must
install a database before you install Insight Management.
IMPORTANT: Insight Management requires the Microsoft SQL Server database to be configured
in non-binary collation mode. Binary collation mode is not supported.
For information on how to change the collation mode if it is set to binary mode, see the HP Insight
Management Installation and Configuration Guide at the following website:
http://www.hp.com/go/insightcontrol/docs
If you must install a database, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP1 (32-bit) is included on
HP Insight Management DVD #1.
NOTE: Microsoft SQL Server is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Insight Management
only carries the 32-bit version of SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP1. Thus, it only installs a 32-bit
SQL Server Express version as a fresh install. You must manually upgrade all installed SQL Server
editions and versions, including 64-bit versions, to an edition and version listed in Table 16
(page 16).

Supported CMS configurations in a Microsoft Windows domain
HP recommends that you adhere to the following guidelines for your single-server CMS configuration:
16
•
Do not install Insight Management on domain controllers.
•
If one server is in a workgroup, make sure that each server has a local account with the same
name and password (both for services and database credentials).
•
Do not install Insight Control server deployment and the HP ProLiant Server OS Deployment
Toolkit for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (part of HP Insight Control for
Microsoft System Center) in the same subnet. Both of these provide their own separate PXE
boot services, and networking issues can arise if both are installed on the same subnet at the
same time.
•
Do not install Insight Control server deployment and an HP Ignite-UX server on the same subnet.
•
Matrix OE uses Microsoft Windows Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication for the Matrix OE
services/processes database connectivity. HP recommends that you use the same Microsoft
Central Management Server requirements
Windows domain account credentials for both the Systems Insight Manager installation, the
Matrix OE installation, and the database access.
A CMS configuration can contain two separate databases, which can be local or remote:
•
A CMS database for the CMS to store information about all managed devices
•
A deployment server database that stores the inventory and state information about managed
systems (if you install the Insight Control server deployment software)
The databases can be local to the CMS or can be located on a remote system. The CMS and the
SQL Server database servers do not need to be in the same domain and do not need to be in a
trusted domain.
If you install Insight Control server deployment software, a CMS configuration contains a deployment
server that stores copies of OS images to deploy to managed systems. The managed systems
connect and communicate with the deployment server to register inventory and configuration
information and to run deployment and management tasks. The deployment server can be local
to the CMS or can be located on a remote server.
NOTE: This release of Insight Management also supports the configuration of the CMS as a
two-node failover cluster. For more information about a CMS configuration in a high-availability
environment, see “Central Management Server requirements in a high-availability environment”
(page 19).
Figure 1 (page 18) illustrates the supported combinations of the CMS, the local and remote database
servers, and the local or remote deployment server.

Central Management Server requirements
3 Central Management Server requirements in a
high-availability environment
This release of Insight Management supports the configuration of the CMS as a single-site, two-node
physical server Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 failover cluster to create a highly-available
environment. Using failover clustering with Insight Management is a simple way to achieve
redundancy, availability, load balancing, and failover capability.
Clustering is an included feature of the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise operating
systems, and cluster support is an included feature of the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise
products.
Installing or upgrading a CMS cluster follows a different procedure from that of a single-server
CMS installation or upgrade. For more information, see the Installing and upgrading HP Insight
Management 7.1 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Failover Clusters white paper in the Insight
Management Information Library:
http://www.hp.com/go/insightmanagement/docs

platforms for high-availability:
•
•
Operating system:
◦
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition
◦

Cluster configuration requirements
•
Two-node clusters, consisting of two HP ProLiant servers (that is, physical servers, not virtual
machines) and attached shared storage, are supported. Each server must satisfy the hardware
and recommended requirements for Insight Management and the Microsoft Windows Server
2008 R2 Enterprise OS, including processor, memory, networking, and disk space.
To validate servers and storage that are certified for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, see
“Central Management Server requirements” (page 7) and the following Microsoft website:
http://www.windowsservercatalog.com/
•
HP recommends SAN shared storage, although you can use any shared storage that Microsoft
clustering supports.
•
HP recommends SAN boot for the two cluster nodes.
•
Each server requires two dedicated network adapters, at minimum, one for a public
(client-facing) network and another for a private cluster network. Each server requires a third
dedicated adapter if you use an iSCSI SAN.
•
The SQL server must run either: in the same cluster with Insight Management; or, in a remote
Windows cluster that is a member of the same Windows domain as the Insight Management
cluster.
•
An Active Directory domain infrastructure and DNS services suitable for hosting the cluster
are required, but they cannot run on either of the two cluster nodes.
•
The fully configured cluster must pass the Validate test in the Windows Failover Cluster
Manager.
Unsupported items in a CMS cluster configuration
20
•
Brocade Network Advisor, Command View, HP Operations Orchestration, VMware vCenter
Server, and similar applications are not permitted in a CMS cluster
•
Multi-site Windows cluster: a CMS cluster is a single site cluster.

Third-party servers
HP Matrix Operating Environment virtual logical servers are supported on third-party servers running
a supported hypervisor when an HP Matrix Operating Environment for non-HP servers license is
applied. Third-party severs are licensed for Matrix Operating Environment and Insight Control
virtual machine management through the HP Matrix Operating Environment for non-HP Servers
license. For licensing information, see
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13050_div/13050_div.pdf.
In general, any server listed in the VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor compatibility guides
is supported as follows. However, if HP Systems Insight Manager cannot obtain the server's serial
number, HP SIM cannot support the server. Note that VM guests cannot be moved from one
third-party vendor’s server to another.
HP tested select models from the following server families. They represent a sample of the third
party servers that can be supported.
•
Dell PowerEdge
•
IBM System x servers
•
Cisco UCS
For information on Microsoft Hyper-V compatibility, search for Hyper-V from the http://
www.windowsservercatalog.com website.
For information on VMware compatibility, use the search function at http://www.vmware.com/
resources/compatibility/search.php.
NOTE:
HP Insight Control deployment, migration, performance, and power management are not supported
on these servers because you cannot apply an HP Insight Control license to a third-party server.
VMs using raw devices, HP Matrix Operating Environment recovery management, and physical
server provisioning are also not supported on third-party servers. To understand the functionality
that HP SIM supports, see the white paper titled How to manage non-HP x86 Windows servers
with HP SIM at the following website

Fibre channel storage and switch recommendations
HP recommends the HP storage solution portfolio of products, which includes:
•
3PAR Storage Systems
•
P6000 EVA
•
P9000 XP
You must provide connectivity to a compatible Fibre Channel SAN array. Customer-supplied Fibre
Channel switches to an external SAN must support boot from SAN and NPIV functionality.
To obtain a list of switches and storage devices that are supported by Virtual Connect Fibre Channel:
1. Open a browser to the following website:
http://www.hp.com/storage/spock
2.
3.
If you are a new user and do not have an HP Passport account, register for an account. If you
have an account, sign in.
Navigate to Other Hardware→Virtual Connect→HP VC 8Gb 24-Port Module.
iSCSI SAN
As noted in Table 29 (page 33), iSCSI is supported only as a virtual backing store (not a physical
server booting from iSCSI or a virtual machine directly accessing raw iSCSI LUNs).
To use iSCSI, you must provide connectivity to a compatible iSCSI SAN. As with Fibre Channel
storage, the storage vendor generally certifies end-to-end support for an iSCSI storage device.
VMware and Microsoft independently certify third-party devices with their respective operating
systems, hypervisors, and iSCSI initiators. Confirmation of device support by the hypervisor vendor
is a prerequisite to support in Insight Management.
NOTE: For security, reliability, and performance, HP recommends separate, dedicated iSCSI
networks for iSCSI LAN traffic.
iSCSI targets as backing storage for VM guests
HP recommends the following iSCSI targets as backing storage for virtual machine guests:

6
Matrix recovery management supports only 3PAR iSCSI storage systems (Table 28 (page 30)) as VM backing store. For
other iSCSI storage systems that Matrix Operating Environment supports, Matrix recovery management 7.1 provides a
user-defined storage adapter interface specification for integration. For more information, see HP Matrix Operating
Environment Recovery Management User Guide and also “iSCSI SAN” (page 32)

Matrix OE storage support
Matrix OE supports the use of virtual and physical logical servers. “Storage options for virtual
machine guests” (page 33) lists the virtual server storage options. Physical logical servers use
storage provisioned from the SAN for flexible movement.
Supported hardware storage products
33
HP recommends Fibre Channel Storage Area Network (SAN) with boot-from-SAN capability (for
physical blade deployments). Matrix OE supports any Fibre Channel storage solution, which
supports the Virtual Connect environment (including the ability to present storage to an initiator
WWN which is not yet visible on the fabric), N_Port MOE Virtualization (NPIV), and boot-from-SAN
capability. Matrix OE supports SAN-based storage for Integrity VM logical servers. For more
information, see the HP Matrix Operating Environment Logical Server Management User Guide.
To realize the benefits of Virtual Connect logical servers, including the ability to move logical
servers and to easily repurpose server blades associated with inactive logical servers, you must
remove or disable any local disks.
Storage support for Matrix OE Provisioning
The storage validation feature of Matrix OE logical server management is supported on the following
HP disk arrays:
•
•
P2000fc
◦
Using explicit or default mapping
◦
MSA SMI-S provider version 1.1.2 or later
EVA 4x00/6x00/8x00 and HP P6300/P6350/P6500/P6550
NOTE: Support for a password-protected HP P6000 EVA Storage System array requires the
HP P6000 Command View Software to be configured to enable password access to the array
(with the same password as is set on the array).
Matrix OE logical server capabilities, including storage validation and integration with the HP
Storage Provisioning Manager (SPM) 2.1.5, support HP P6000 Command View Software versions
9.4, 10.0, and 10.1 (includes the array SMI-S provider).
HP Matrix Operating Environment supports pre-provisioned Fibre Channel storage and on-demand
provisioned storage though integration with the HP Storage Provisioning Manager 2.1.5. SPM
supports the 3PAR, EVA, and XP Storage Systems. On-demand provisioning (including automated
zoning of Brocade SAN environments) is supported for the EVA and 3PAR Storage Systems. For
more information, see the HP Storage Provisioning Manager (SPM) User Guide, which is available
from the Matrix Operating Environment Information Library:
http://www.hp.com/go/matrixoe/docs

•
HP P9000 XP Storage System
Matrix recovery management replicates data between the primary and recovery sites using 3PAR
Remote Copy replication software, HP P6000 Continuous Access Software, or HP 9000 Continuous
Access Software. Each site requires its own instance of HP P6000 Command View Software to
manage the HP P6000 EVA arrays or HP P9000 XP Storage Systems storage management station
to manage HP P9000 arrays associated with that site.
Matrix recovery management supports 3PAR Storage Systems with Remote Copy synchronous and
asynchronous replication as follows:
34
•
CLX/3PAR (v2.0 or later) and 3PAR InForm CLI (3.1.1 MU1, MU2, and later) must be installed

5 Managed system firmware requirements
This chapter provides the firmware recommendations for servers and devices that can be licensed
and managed by Insight Management.
Service Pack for ProLiant
HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) is a collection of individual systems software and firmware,
offered as a solution for all the following HP ProLiant servers, including all Gen8 servers:
•
HP BladeSystem c-Class ProLiant Server Blade
•
HP ProLiant DL300, DL500, DL6001, DL700, and DL900 series rack mount servers
•
HP ProLiant ML300 and ML500 series tower servers
•
HP ProLiant SL1001, SL2001, SL300, and SL4000 series scalable system servers
Updating servers, BladeSystems, and BladeSystem enclosures using the SPP with HP Smart Update
Manager (HP SUM) is faster and more efficient because only the necessary components are
preloaded.
The SPP is delivered as an ISO image. There are also six subsets, also delivered as ISOs. They
are optimized by operating systems and ProLiant server types. Each subset version includes software
and firmware smart components required for its specific audience and allows for a customized
solution and a faster download. The ISOs available are:
•
HP Service Pack for ProLiant
•
BladeSystem Red Hat Enterprise Linux Pack
•
BladeSystem SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Pack
•
BladeSystem Microsoft Windows Server Pack
•
ProLiant ML/DL/SL Red Hat Enterprise Linux Pack
•
ProLiant ML/DL/SL SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Pack
•
ProLiant ML/DL/SL Microsoft Windows Server Pack

A Hardware requirements and supported capabilities for
Insight Control power management
This appendix describes the support requirements for Insight Control power management. The
minimum firmware versions listed in this appendix apply only to power management. For firmware
requirements that apply to the entire Insight Management stack, see “Managed system firmware
requirements” (page 36).
The license redemption process for Insight Control generates separate license keys for all Insight
Control capabilities, including power management, and generates the license keys for HP iLO
Advanced and iLO Advanced for BladeSystem. To use Insight Control power management, you
must apply an iLO Advanced license key to the server.
Power management capabilities
Insight Control power management provides the following power management capabilities:
•
Power Regulator enables dynamic or static changes in CPU performance and power states.
In dynamic mode, Power Regulator automatically adjusts the processor power usage and
performance of a server to match CPU application activity. It improves server energy efficiency
by giving CPUs full power for applications when they need it and enabling power savings
without performance degradation when application activity is reduced. For more information,
see the Power Regulator website:
http://www.hp.com/servers/power-regulator
•
Dynamic Power Capping reclaims trapped power and cooling capacity by safely limiting peak
power consumption of servers.
•
Data Center Thermal Mapping aggregates the data from thermal sensors in the servers and
draws a thermal map of the room.
•
Power Metering provides real-time measurements of actual power consumption so you can
find and fix inefficiencies.
•
Calibrated Maximum Power provides calibrated maximum power to enable power planning
based on accurately measured peak potential power for each device instead of estimates.
•
Data Center Power Control protects critical loads by reducing power to noncritical servers
during cooling system failures. The features of Data Center Power Control available on the
hardware are subject to the capabilities of the operating systems that are listed in Table 48
(page 47).
•
Intelligent Power Discovery automatically detects the PDU and outlet that a server is plugged
into.
Server requirements and supported capabilities for Insight Control power
management
This section lists the servers on which power management is available as well as the power
management requirements and supported power management capabilities. Support for specific
power management capabilities varies by server model.

For Enclosure Dynamic Power Capping, iLO 2 version 1.70 or later. Otherwise, iLO 2 version 2 1.30 or later.
For Enclosure Dynamic Power Capping, OA 2.30 or later. Otherwise, OA 1.30 or later.
When you are implementing power capping for HP BladeSystem, HP recommends that you use Enclosure Dynamic Power
Capping set through the Onboard Administrator or Insight Control power management user interface. To use Enclosure
Dynamic Power Capping, you must upgrade your iLO 2 firmware to version 1.70 or later and iLO 3 to version 1.0 or
later. HP recommends that you update your system ROM to version 10/1/2008 or later for iLO 2, and May 2010 or
later for iLO 3 for G7 servers. For some older BL460c servers, the iLO 2 firmware might not be able to automatically
update the Dynamic Power Capping hardware circuit. In these instances, the Onboard Administrator will compensate
for the absence of the internal hardware circuit and continue to guarantee circuit protection.
This server model does not support HP Dynamic Power Savings mode.

HP Power Regulator for Integrity servers requires Intel Itanium Processor 9100 series Dual-Core 1.6 GHz 18/24 MB
parts. It also requires HP-UX 11.31 with patches PHKL_36654, PHKL_37031, PHKL_37032, PHKL_36477, and
PHKL_36478, or Microsoft Windows Server 2008 with the "HP platform-controlled Power management" driver (other
operating systems to be announced). If Microsoft Windows Server 2008 was factory-installed by HP, the driver is already
installed. If you have installed Microsoft Windows Server 2008, then you must obtain the HP Smart Setup CD and
manually install this Smart Component. The Smart Setup CD is available as part of the HP Integrity Essentials Foundation
Pack for Microsoft Windows (T2369AA) or is available from http://www.hp.com under "Software and Driver downloads"
for your platform.

The Utilization Provider is required on all Matrix Operating
Environment managed systems. It provides utilization data for
Virtualization Manager and Capacity Advisor.
Table 51 (page 52) lists the latest version of the Utilization Provider
provided with this release of the Matrix Operating Environment.
HP-UX CMS requirements
77
Table 67 Requirements for managed system — managing from an HP-UX CMS (continued)
Application Discovery WBEM Provider
The Application Discovery WBEM Provider version A.04.01 or later
is required on all systems that Application Discovery will manage.
For the latest version, see Table 51 (page 52).
gWLM Agent
The gWLM agent is required on all systems that gWLM will manage.
For details on the appropriate version(s) of gWLM, see HP Global
Workload Manager User Guide.
HP recommends that you upgrade to the latest version of the gWLM
agent. For the latest version, see Table 51 (page 52).
nPartition Provider
Install this software on HP-UX managed systems even if the system
does not use nPartitions.
• HP-UX 11i v2 on HP 9000 requires version B.23.01.07.05 or
later.
• HP-UX 11i v2 on HP Integrity requires version B.23.01.07.05 or
later.
• HP-UX 11i v3 requires version B.31.02.01 or later.
For the latest version, see Table 51 (page 52).
VM Provider
You must install VM Provider version 1.20 or later on HP Integrity
VM host systems. You can use earlier versions of the VM Provider
on individual virtual machines. Installed versions of HP Integrity
Virtual Machines, VM Provider, and VMGuestLib must be compatible.
Do not mix different versions of these components on the same
system.
For the latest version of the VM Provider, see Table 51 (page 52).
IMPORTANT: You cannot install the VM Provider on systems that
are running HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31).
vPar Provider
The vPar Provider that was included with the March 2006 release
of HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23) does not work properly. With the March
2006 version installed, Systems Insight Manager and Matrix
Operating Environment do not discover and display virtual partitions
correctly. The vPar Provider that is included with Matrix Operating
Environment fixes this problem. However, it presents the same version
number as the March 2006 version.
This problem does not occur with the HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31) vPar
Provider.
You can fix this problem by executing the following command on
each system where the vPar Provider has been installed:
/opt/wbem/bin/cimmof -n root/cimv2/vpar \
/opt/vparprovider/mof/HPUX_VParLocalPartition.mof
Alternatively, on systems that are running HP-UX 11i v2, you can
remove the installed version of the vPar Provider and install the
version delivered with the Matrix Operating Environment (or forcibly
reinstall the Matrix Operating Environment version).
For the latest version of the vPar Provider, see Table 51 (page 52).
Agents and providers bundled with the Matrix Operating Environment
