RHEL4

These instructions assume you already have SNMP configured for version 3 on RHEL4 HP Proliant DL 360 server and another server with Nagios installed and working.

Download and Install HP RPMs

Necessary RPMs are hp-health and hp-snmp-agents.

You can go to the below link to download hp-health for RHEL4 x86 directly: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=452749&prodNameId=3288142&swEnvOID=2025&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-11651fcb8d1b4b3fb224959c4e

You can go to the below link to download hp-snmp-agents for RHEL4 x86 directly:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=452749&prodNameId=3288142&swEnvOID=2025&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-15f072a096134b8397225e4612

First install the hp-health RPM: rpm -ivh hp-health-XXX.rpm

Start the service: service hp-health start

Install the hp-snmp-agents RPM: rpm -ivh hp-snmp-agents.XXX.rpm

Start the service: service hp-snmp-agents start

Edit SNMP file to add the HP MIB’s to net-snmp: dlmod cmaX /usr/lib/libcmaX.so (for 64-bit) dlmod cmaX /usr/lib64/libcmaX64.so

Configure snmp v3 user: net-snmp-config –create-snmpv3-user -ro -a AuthPasswd -x PrivPasswd -X AES -A SHA snmpuser

Restart SNMP service: service net-snmp restart

Verify you get a response from snmpwalk from your Nagios monitoring server:

snmpwalk -l authPriv -u “snmpuser” -X “PrivPassword” -A “AuthPassword” -a SHA -x AES -v 3 “HOST IP” 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.6.2.6.8.1.3 (HP specific OID)

Add Nagios Service Check

Now the issue is to edit a Nagios check to receive SNMP version 3 parameters … I downloaded the check_hpasm from Nagios exchange.  Installed it on my Nagios server.  From the command line made sure it worked by calling check_hpasm with the following options: ./check_hpasm -H HOSTNAME/IP -P 3 –username snmpuser –authpassword snmppassword

This should work with the correct username and password.

Add this to your commands.cfg file

# ‘check_hpasm_v3’ command definition
define command {
command_name    check_hpasm_v3
command_line    $USER1$/check_hpasm -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -P 3 –username $ARG1$ –authpassword $ARG2$
}

# ‘check_hpasm_v3’ command definitiondefine command {        command_name    check_hpasm_v3        command_line    $USER1$/check_hpasm -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -P 3 –username $ARG1$ –authpassword $ARG2$        }

Add this to a service check .cfg file:

define service{

use                      linux-service

host_name                g05

service_description      HPASM SNMP v3 Check

check_command            check_hpasm_v3!snmpuser!AuthPasswd

normal_check_interval    5

retry_check_interval     1

}

Make sure to run a Nagios configuration check before restarting.

  1. I think you need to have the RPMs from HP installed first on the system you want to monitor. The check_hp is looking for those SNMP values that would be installed by the hp-health.XXX.rpm and hp-snmp-agents from the top of the post. Once those are installed on the system you want to monitor, you should get a response back for the SNMP request made by check_hp.

    I hope this helps!
