Serviceguard Manager is the graphical user interface for Serviceguard. It is available as a “plug-in” to the System Management Homepage (SMH). SMH is a web-based graphical user interface (GUI) that replaces SAM as the system administration GUI as of HP-UX 11i v3 (but you can still run the SAM terminal interface; see “Using SAM”).

You can use Serviceguard Manager to monitor, administer, and configure Serviceguard clusters.

  • Monitor: you can see properties, status, and alerts of clusters, nodes, and packages.

  • Administer: you can do administrative tasks such as run or halt clusters, cluster nodes, and packages.

  • Configure: you can create or modify a cluster and its packages (for restrictions, see “Configuring Clusters with Serviceguard Manager”).

See the latest Release Notes for your version of Serviceguard for an introduction to using Serviceguard Manager.

Check the Serviceguard, SGeRAC, and SMS Compatibility and Feature Matrix and the latest Release Notes for your version of Serviceguard for up-to-date information about Serviceguard Manager compatibility (http://www.docs.hp.com -> High Availability -> Serviceguard).

Monitoring Clusters with Serviceguard Manager

From the main page of Serviceguard Manager, you can see status and alerts for the cluster, nodes, and packages. You can also drill down to see the configuration and alerts of the cluster, nodes, and packages.

Administering Clusters with Serviceguard Manager

Serviceguard Manager allows you administer clusters, nodes, and packages if access control policies permit:

  • Cluster: halt, run

  • Cluster nodes: halt, run

  • Package: halt, run, move from one node to another, reset node- and package-switching flags

Configuring Clusters with Serviceguard Manager

You can configure clusters and legacy packages in Serviceguard Manager; modular packages must be configured by means of Serviceguard commands (see “How the Package Manager Works”; Chapter 6 “Configuring Packages and Their Services”; and “Configuring a Legacy Package”). You must have root (UID=0) access to the cluster nodes.

Starting Serviceguard Manager

To start the Serviceguard Manager plug-in in your web browser from the System Management Homepage, click on the link to Serviceguard Cluster or a particular cluster. Then select a cluster, node, or package, and use the drop-down menus below the “Serviceguard Manager” banner to navigate to the task you need to do.

Use Serviceguard Manager’s built-in help to guide you through the tasks; this manual will tell you if a task can be done in Serviceguard Manager but does not duplicate the help.
