  1. Our issue is that we have installed HP Storage Management Pack for System Center Ver 4.0 into our SCOM 2012 R2 environment, but we cannot view the ‘Capacity Dashboard’ or ‘Health Dashboard’ from a SCOM console running on a Windows 7 Workstation machine.?? have you seen this type of behaviour?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Gavin,
      I do not know what are the requirements for these dashboards but I would make sure that I have installed .NET Framework 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, and 4.5 and Windows Power Shell v2.0 or v3.0 to see if this will help.

  2. Hello!

    Stanislav, do you have User Guide for HP StoreFront Manager for Microsoft 4.0 (or 4.1)? I cannot find any actual version(

      1. Hi, Stanislav.

        I have already downloaded this MP, but in Documentation section I can see just two documents – SCOM MP V4.1 Release Notes (5697-3451.pdf) and SCVMM UI Add-in V2.1 Release Notes (5697-3452.pdf), and no user guides…

      2. Now i finally find this user guide =) This document was in SCVMM plugin download. First i downloaded just SCOM MP (i don’t need SCVMM plugin).

        Stanislav, thank you very much for your help!
