Overview of the Insight Management 7.2 release
2 Installation and upgrade notes
This chapter provides links to the Insight Management installation documentation and contains
notes that are important to read before upgrading to Insight Management version 7.2, performing
a new installation of Insight Management version 7.2, or uninstalling the Insight Management
software.
Obtaining Insight Management installation documentation
The HP Insight Management Installation and Configuration Guide and all other related Insight
Management installation documentation is available from the Insight Management Information
Library:
http://www.hp.com/go/insightmanagement/docs
PDF versions of the Insight Management installation documents are also available from the
Documentation tab on the startup screen of the HP Insight Management DVD #1.
IMPORTANT: Any document shipped on the Insight Management DVD might have an updated
edition available on the web, therefore, HP recommends that you go to the Insight Management
Information Library to ensure that you have the most up-to-date documents.
Potential Microsoft SQL database errors
Table 7 lists known issues acknowledged by Microsoft that can occur during an SQL database
upgrade. These errors can also occur during a new installation of Insight Management as well if
the existing database on the CMS is automatically upgraded as part of the installation.
The Error code column lists the error codes that will be displayed when the upgrade to SQL Server
2008 Express R2 is not successful.

Upgrading Microsoft SQL 2008
Disable the "Deny Log on as Service" in the local security policy.
R2 Express might fail on a CMS
installed with Windows 2008 R2
if the Administrator has been
added to both local security
policies: "Log on as a service" and
"Deny Log on as service".
The upgrade failure occurs
because the "Deny Log on as
service" security setting receives
more priority than the "Log on as
a service" settings, which prevents
the SQL service from starting.
2067922429 This error is caused by a mismatch
of CPU architecture between the
Microsoft SQL components that are
already installed on the server,
and the components that are
packaged in the Microsoft SQL
2008 Express R2 installer. If 64-bit
Microsoft SQL components are
already installed on the server, this
error occurs.
This error code will only occur on
an x64 server.
Verify if the 64-bit Microsoft SQL components are already installed
on the server by determining if there are any Microsoft SQL
components in the 64–bit registry node with a version different from
Microsoft SQL 2005 SP3 or above.
As a workaround, remove the 64-bit Microsoft SQL components
and reinstall the DVD components again.

Upgrading Insight Management
Before beginning an upgrade of Insight Management, HP recommends that you gather the
information listed in the HP Insight Management 7.2 Preinstallation Worksheet. Gathering the data
before you begin ensures that you are prepared to supply all the information required during the
upgrade.
Upgrade paths
This release supports upgrading Systems Insight Manager, Insight Control, and Matrix Operating
Environment components from Insight Software DVD version 6.2 or later.
IMPORTANT: Any of the Systems Insight Manager or Insight Control components that were
installed an HP Insight Software DVD that is older than version 3.10 or any of the Matrix Operating
Environment components that were installed from an HP Insight Software DVD that is older than
version 6.2, require a two-step process to upgrade to version 7.2. This is necessary to bring all
software up to the minimum supported versions and operating systems for the upgrade. For more
information, see the HP Insight Management 7.2 Installation and Configuration Guide.
Table 8 lists the upgrade paths for individual Insight Management components. The installer
automatically upgrades Insight Management components that are running at the minimum supported
version to version 7.2.

In general, if a version of Insight Dynamics earlier than 6.2 is installed, you must use HP Insight Software DVD 6.2 to
upgrade to Insight Dynamics 6.2 and then perform a second upgrade to version 7.2 using HP Insight Management DVD
7.2.
SPM 1.2 is included with Insight Dynamics 6.2, SPM 2.1 is included with Matrix Operating Environment 7.1, and SPM
2.2 with Matrix Operating Environment 7.2.
Backing up the current CMS configuration before upgrading
Before beginning an upgrade, HP recommends that you follow the instructions in the HP Insight
Management Installation and Configuration Guide to back up the current CMS configuration in
case you need to restore the CMS.
Upgrade notes
Chapter 2 in the HP Insight Management 7.2 Installation and Configuration Guide describes the
Insight Management installation and upgrade procedure. Some steps in Chapter 2 are not required
for an upgrade. Therefore, HP recommends that you read the documentation when you perform
an upgrade because it indicates when a step does not apply.
This section contains notes that apply to upgrading Insight Management:
•
During an upgrade, Matrix Operating Environment properties files from an earlier release are
replaced by new properties files for the 7.2 release. If you made any modifications or
customizations to the properties files, your changes are lost.
Suggested action: Before beginning an upgrade to Matrix Operating Environment 7.2, save
a copy of user-modified properties files or note any changes made to the files so that you can
insert those modifications into the new 7.2 versions of the files.
The following is a partial list of properties files that are commonly modified. Verify in your
environment if you have modified these files before beginning an upgrade, and if you have
modified them, save the files to a location that is not under the \Program Files\HP\
Virtual Server Environment directory tree.

Installation and upgrade notes
•
Upgrading HP Matrix infrastructure orchestration requires a manual step to upgrade Operations
Orchestration. This step is documented in the HP Insight Management 7.2 Installation and
Configuration Guide.
•
If the currently installed version of Insight Remote Support Advanced software is lower than
Version A.05.70 on an existing HP SIM installation or you are intending to install HP SIM as
a new installation, you must install or update the Insight Remote Support Advanced software
to version A.05.70 or later to make it compatible with the HP SIM 7.2 installation.
Suggested action: The easiest way to upgrade directly to version A.05.70 is to install the latest
version available from the HP Software Depot, at the following website:
https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?
productNumber=RSADVANCED
Doing so will preserve your configuration details and avoid some of the manual steps required
to upgrade.
NOTE: HP Insight Remote Support Advanced installer supports upgrade to version 5.70
from both 5.50 and 5.60 versions. Ensure that Insight Remote Support Advanced is upgraded
to version 5.70 before installing HP Systems Insight Manager 7.2.
•
During an upgrade of Insight Control server migration, an uninstallation window appears.
Suggested action: This window is an expected part of the upgrade process and it appears
only for a moment. Do not manually close this window.
•
When Insight Control server deployment and HP SIM are installed on the same system but use
different databases, you must upgrade Insight Control server deployment using its standalone
installer before running the Insight Management Installer.
If you upgrade Insight Control server deployment using the Insight Management Installer,
Insight Control server deployment redirects you to use the same database as HP SIM and data
from the original Insight Control server deployment database is not migrated.
•
After upgrading Operations Orchestration from version 7.51 to 9.0, Operations Orchestration
Central and Studio have different certificate keys. Operations Orchestration Studio cannot
access the URL https://localhost:16443.
Suggested action: To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
1. Make a backup copy of the rc_keystore file on the CMS.
2. Copy the rc_keystore file installed on the CMS (C:\Program Files\HP\
Operations Orchestration\Central\conf\rc_keystore) to the same path
on the Operations Orchestration Studio system (C:\Program Files\HP\Operations
Orchestration\Studio\conf\rc_keystore).
3. Restart Operations Orchestration Studio.
•
When upgrading from SPM 1.x to 2.x, if the unmanaged volumes do not have serial numbers
defined in the original version, the arrays do not show up in the new SPM catalog. This is
caused by a problem with the generated unmanaged array XML file.
Suggested Action: Prior to upgrading SPM 1.x to SPM 2.x, edit all unmanaged volumes to
include a serial number. (This must be a unique value.) If the upgrade was performed prior
to performing this action, your SPM 2.x catalog will have to be edited to fill in the missing
field. Contact Matrix support for assistance.
•
Any upgrades from SPM 1.x to SPM 2.x requires SPM to be able to access the storage arrays
during the upgrade process. If any of the arrays is down or is offline, or if the connection
information is not correct, then any 1.x managed arrays will be converted to unmanaged
arrays in 2.x version. This is important because the upgrade process works by analyzing the
older catalog, importing the appropriate array resources into the new SPM catalog, and
Upgrading Insight Management
17
mapping the older catalog resources onto the new resources. If SPM 2.x cannot communicate
with the array, then it is not possible to perform the import step.
NOTE: The connection mechanism for EVA arrays has changed between SPM 1.x and SPM
2.x. In both the cases, the management host, user name, and password should be the same,
however, SPM 1.x uses ESA to communicate with the EVA array, and the connection
information includes the access port. SPM 2.x communicates directly with HP P6000 Command
View Software running on the management host, using the HP P6000 Command View Software
port (usually 2372 or 2374). If HP P6000 Command View Software is configured to use a
different port, SPM will be unable to connect with the array during the upgrade process. If
you have reconfigured HP P6000 Command View Software, you must change back the
configuration to use the default port during the upgrade process. This allows the upgrade
process to communicate with the array and import the appropriate resources. The user can
force the upgrade SPM by running spmadmin /forcev1upgrade command. After the
upgrade process is complete, you can reconfigure HP P6000 Command View Software to
your preferred port and reconfigure the array’s connection information within SPM 2.x, if
necessary.
•
In some cases, the existing SPM 1.x services become non-comformant after upgrading to SPM
2.x. In some of these cases, it is possible to clean up these by bringing up the Matrix Operating
Environment Logical Server Storage Pool interface and checking the storage pool entry (SPE)
configuration.
If the SAN fabrics for server initiator WWNs are incorrect, correcting the SAN fabrics for
host initiators and saving the SPE this may address the problem. If the SAN fabrics are present
and are correct, merely modifying and saving the SPE can be a sufficient workaround to
address the problem. If the SAN fabrics are not available for the entries, you will need to
remove the SPE, deactivate and remove the associated SPM storage service, and then re-create
the SPE. Note the server initiator WWNs from the SPE, and then delete the SPE. Create a
new “SAN Catalog Storage Entry” SPE, and replace the auto-generated server initiator WWNs
with the noted values. Request candidates from SPM and make and appropriate selection.
The new SPM storage service should be conformant.
•
When SPM is installed, the sample XML files for unmanaged arrays and unmanaged SAN
operation are named as example.xml. When an upgrade from SPM 2.0 to SPM 2.2 is
performed, any file named example.xml that is present in the SPM state folder is removed
by the installer. It is important that you do not use the example.xml filename for your
production XML files, or you can risk losing that data when SPM is upgraded. If you have
used the example.xml file for naming for your production usage, you must back up this file
to a different location before performing the upgrade, and then restore the files to their proper
location in the state folder following the upgrade.
Installing Insight Management
Before beginning a new installation of Insight Management, HP recommends that you gather the
information listed in the HP Insight Management 7.2 Preinstallation Worksheet. Gathering the data
before you begin ensures that you are prepared to supply all input required during the installation.
See the HP Insight Management 7.2 Installation and Configuration Guide for installation instructions
and how to configure managed systems after Insight Management is installed.
Installation and upgrade times
The HP Insight Management 7.2 Installation and Configuration Guide lists approximate installation
and upgrade times for individual Insight Management components on an x86 and an x64 Operating
Systems.

Installation and upgrade notes
Disabling virus scanners before beginning an installation
HP recommends that you disable virus-scanning software and backup agents before beginning the
installation process. Some Insight Management components might not install, if virus-scanning
software and/or backup agents are running.
Installation notes
The following list contains general notes that apply to a new installation of Insight Management.
Read these notes before you begin an installation.
•
On a system that has Windows 2008 R2 as its operating system, if the FTP site is not running,
the Default FTP site state test in the Insight Management Advisor displays No problems
found message instead of returning an error.
Suggested action: IIS does not provide proper FTP site status. For more information about the
issue, see the following two links:

The Insight Management Advisor password expiration check may fail displaying the following
error message: A system error occurred calling NetUserGetInfo due to the fact that the
workstation service and/or the server service failed to restart on the Windows domain controller
server.
Suggested action: Ensure that the Workstation and the Server services are running on the
domain controller server for the domain to which the CMS belongs.
•
The following notes apply while installing Insight Control server deployment:
◦
For Windows 2008 and Windows 2012 with a local DHCP service, search the Altiris
Knowledge base for Article 45903 at the following website:
http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=home
This article provides information about modifying PXE configuration options if the DHCP
service is required to be installed locally on a Windows 2008 deployment server.
◦
•
If you are installing Insight Control server deployment, do not install the ProLiant OS
Deployment Pack for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007, which is
part of the Insight Control extensions for Microsoft System Center. Both of these components
provide PXE services, and networking issues could arise if both components are installed
in the same environment.
The Insight Management Installer cannot run from a mapped drive if the server is running a
Windows Server 2003 OS.
This issue occurs when the Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) enhanced security feature is enabled,
which is the default setting for Windows Server 2003-based computers. This enhanced level
of security might prevent certain web sites from appearing as expected in IE because scripts,
ActiveX Controls, and downloads are disabled.
Suggested action: To resolve this issue, turn off the IE Enhanced Security Configuration before
starting the installation.
WARNING! If you turn off enhanced security, you might expose your server to potential
security attacks. HP recommends that you use a limited user account instead of an administrator
account for general web browsing. Use the Group Policy feature to keep unauthorized users
from making inappropriate changes to browser security settings.
Installing Insight Management

•
Microsoft .NET 4.0 Framework can be installed and present on the CMS, but it cannot be set
as the default. The entire .NET package needs to be installed, otherwise the SQL server
installation fails.
•
On rare occasions, it is possible for individual component installations to not be able to
continue (the component installation fails to complete) due to a timing issue in the startup of
the HP SIM service.
Suggested action: If this situation occurs, rerun the Insight Management Installer to complete
the installation of the components that were not installed.
•
The following notes apply to installing Operations Orchestration:
◦
You cannot download 64-bit Operations Orchestration Studio from Insight Orchestration
Designer.
An icon in the Workflow dialog box in Insight Orchestration Designer enables you to
download and install the 32-bit version of Operations Orchestration Studio. If you
download and attempt to install the 32-bit version on a 64-bit CMS, the following error
is displayed: “Studio version: 9.00 does not match Central version: 2.0. Setup will exit.”
Suggested action: The 64-bit version of Operations Orchestration Studio is available on
the HP Insight Management DVD #2, in the /MatrixIO folder.
◦
A “Failed Login” message is displayed when you try to log in to Operations Orchestration
Studio 9.00 pointing to a remote repository (for example, Operations Orchestration
Central 9.00 on the CMS).
Suggested action: To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
1. Make a backup of the rc_keystore file on the CMS.
2. Copy the rc_keystore file installed on the CMS (C:\Program Files\HP\
Operations Orchestration\Central\conf\rc_keystore) to the same
path on the remote Operations Orchestration Studio system (C:\Program Files\
HP\Operations Orchestration\Studio\conf\rc_keystore).
3. Restart Operations Orchestration Studio.
◦
Operations Orchestration Central and Studio are not localized to Japanese in Matrix
Operating Environment 6.3. Operations Orchestration is available only in English, even
when it is installed on a Japanese CMS.
Suggested action: You cannot configure Operations Orchestration with the /lang=jp
or lang=ja qualifier. Thus, ignore the “/lang=xx“ switch shown in step 3e in the
Configuring HP Matrix Operating Environment infrastructure orchestration features section
in the HP Insight Management 7.2 Installation and Configuration Guide.
Post installation notes
This section contains information that is important to note after an Insight Management installation.
Patch required for proper management of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 with
Hyper-V systems
A patch from Microsoft is required for managing Microsoft Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V
systems. Patches are installed on the Hyper-V hosts. After you have installed the patch, you must
install or update Hyper-V Integration Services from the updated host to each VM guest. Do this as
a precaution because not all patches affect Integration Services on the guests.
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 SP2 with Hyper-V requires you to install the following patch that
fixes the hang in host servers with many simultaneous virtual machine operations. The patch is
located at:
