Overview


HP System Management Homepage

HP System Management Homepage (HP SMH) is a web-based interface that consolidates and simplifies single system management for HP servers on HP-UX, Linux, and Windows operating systems.


HP System Management Homepage - HP-UX

For servers running HP-UX, HP SMH provides the framework for web-based management applications. HP SMH includes the integration of web-based applications that provide a graphical user interface (GUI) for HP system administration tasks. The HP System Administration Manager (SAM) application is still the primary system management interface for HP-UX 11i v1 (B.11.11) and HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23).  HP SMH replaces SAM as the system management interface for HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31).

The following web-based applications are available for HP-UX:

  • Accounts for Users and Groups (HP-UX 11i v2 and v3 only)

    The Accounts for Users and Groups application (ugweb) is used to configure and manage user accounts, group accounts, user templates, and security attributes on a local and Network Information Service (NIS) system. The Accounts for Users and Groups tool can be launched from the SAM tool or from the HP SMH.
     

  • Auditing and Security Attributes Configuration (HP-UX 11i v2 and v3 only)

    The HP-UX Auditing and Security Attributes Configuration application (secweb) is used to configure and manage security attributes, and the auditing subsystem without having to convert the system to Trusted mode. The Security Attributes Configuration tool can be launched from the SAM tool or from the HP SMH.
     

  • Disks and File Systems (HP-UX 11i v2 and v3 only)

    The Disks and File Systems application (fsweb) is used to configure and manage disks, file systems, and LVM on an HP-UX system. The Disks and File Systems tool can be launched from the SAM tool or from the HP SMH.
     

  • Distributed Systems Administration Utilities (HP-UX 11i v2 and v3 only)

    Distributed Systems Administration Utilities (DSAU) significantly improves the management of HP Service Guard clusters and groups of distributed systems. One of the features that DSAU offers is the consolidated logging feature that is integrated with the HP SMH. The DSAU tool can be launched from the HP SMH.
     

  • Error Management Technology (HP-UX 11i v3 only)

    Error Management Technology (EMT) is a component of the HP System Fault Management (SFM) software. EMT includes the Common Error Repository (CER), which is an online, searchable, and updateable error repository. The CER contains error metadata such as error description, error number, error type, severity, cause of the error, and corrective actions. The EMT tool can be launched from the HP SMH.
     

  • Event Monitoring Service (HP-UX 11i v3 only)

    The Event Monitoring Service (emsweb) tool enables the user to manage requests to monitor resources on the system. The Event Monitoring Service tool is used to create and view requests that monitor resources. The emsweb tool can be launched from the HP SMH.
     

  • Event Subscription Administration and Event Viewer (HP-UX 11i v1, 11i v2 and 11i v3)

    The Event Subscription Administration and Event Viewer (evweb) are components of the System Fault Management (SFM) software. Event Viewer is used to view information about WBEM indications.   Event Subscription Administration is used to create and manage event subscriptions and indications for the local HP-UX system hardware. The evweb tool can be launched from the HP SMH.
     

  • HP-UX Role-based Access Control (RBAC) (HP-UX 11i v2 only)

    Allows management of local RBAC roles, authorizations, and commands through HP SMH.
     

  • Kernel Configuration (HP-UX 11i v2 and v3 only)

    The Kernel Configuration application (kcweb) is used to configure and manage the kernel of the HP-UX system. The Kernel Configuration tool can be launched from the SAM tool or from the HP SMH.
     

  • Network Interfaces Configuration (HP-UX 11i v3 only)

    The Network Interfaces Configuration application (ncweb) enables the user to configure network interfaces on HP-UX installed systems. The Network Interfaces Configuration tool can be launched from the HP SMH.
     

  • nPartition Management (HP-UX 11i v1, v2, and v3)

    The nPartition Manager application (ParMgr)enables the user to configure and manage hard partitions on HP-UX systems. The user can also use ParMgr to detect several types of configuration problems. ParMgr can be launched from the HP SMH.
     

  • Peripheral Devices (HP-UX 11i v1, v2, and v3)

    The Peripheral Devices application (pdweb) enables system administrators to view all the devices on a host system and configure the PCI/OLRAD slots for that system. The Peripheral Devices tool can be launched from the SAM tool or from the HP SMH.
     

  • Printer Management (HP-UX 11i v3 only)

    The Printer Management tool enables the user to configure and manage printers on HP-UX systems. It enables the user to manage local and network printers, save spooler configurations, and monitor print requests. The Printer Management tool can be launched from the HP SMH.
     

  • Serviceguard Manager (HP-UX 11i v2 and v3 only)

    The Serviceguard Manager application enables administrators to configure and manage HP Serviceguard clusters. Its integration with Distributed Systems Administration Utilities (DSAU), which provide command fan out, consolidated log viewing, and cluster synchronization capabilities, simplifies the often-complex task of cluster management. The Service Guard Manager tool can be launched from the HP SMH.

Features

  • Browser access using OS-based SSL-secure authentication
  • Common HTTP and HTTPS services for new HP management applications and utilities for reduced complexity and system resource requirements
  • Automated log collection via smhassist
  • Command Line Interface (CLI) - smhconfig - that provides users with administrator rights access to set values through the command line
  • Facility to disable port 2301
  • Logging of the activities performed on HP SMH into syslog

Benefits

  • Host-based authentication and tight integration with existing security infrastructure
  • Management tools that consume minimal system resources:
    • Consolidates future web-based system administration to one model consistent across all HP servers
    • Includes "start on demand" capabilities so that system resources are not used when tools not in use 
  • Highly responsive user interface supporting access from anywhere via a browser
