Connector configuration

The Snow Integration Connector for HP Server Automation is configured in Snow Integration Manager (SIM). For more information on SIM, refer to User Guide, Snow Integration Manager.

The HP Server Automation connector uses an API connection.

Prerequisites

A user account with administrative access to the target HP Server Automation server.

Note

When gathering inventory data from HP Server Automation (HPSA) using this integration connector the actual servers running the HPSA software itself will not be included and presented in Snow License Manager.

This is due to a limitation in the HPSA API that excludes these servers from the list of devices managed by HPSA.

Configure the HP Server Automation connector

  1. In the Server box, enter the server URL.

    Example 23.

    https://192.168.5.2
