Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) Driver

The Web-Based Enterprise Management driver currently supports operating systems supporting the Web-Based Enterprise Management interface (WBEM).

WBEM is always installed on the following operating systems versions (and later):

• Red Hat Linux 6.2.

• VM Ware (ESX) with WBEM installed.

You can install Web-Based Enterprise Management on some other systems if they do not already use it, but monitored devices must have this installed.

To verify WBEM is running on your system, run the following command: ps-e | grep cim. You should see a process labelled cimserver.

Installing WBEM on Red Hat

You can download and install WBEM support for Red Hat linux. For example, for Red Hat 5, a release for WBEM is tog-pegasus-2.7.0-2.el5_2.1.i386.rpm. This is what you need to download once you have logged into the Red Hat network.

Install this as follows:

Install: rpm -ih tog-pegasus-2.7.0-2.el5_2.1.i386.rpm

Upgrade: rpm -Uh tog-pegasus-2.7.0-2.el5_2.1.i386.rpm

To determine if wbem is running, run ps -ef | grep cimserver in a shell.

To start | stop | get status of the WBEM service:

tog-pegasus start | stop | status"

If the system is running Fedora, then you can access tog-pegasus updates at this site: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packages/name/tog-pegasus
