3 Initial setup
You can install HP System Management Homepage (HP SMH) on systems running HP-UX,
Linux, and Windows.
Additionally, you can install HP SMH locally using the Windows ProLiant Support Pack or the
Linux RPM (Red Hat Package Manager), or remotely with optional preconfiguration using the
ProLiant Remote Deployment Utility or the Linux Deployment Utility.
Installation information
•
For HP-UX systems
HP SMH is installed or updated using the HP-UX Operating Environment (OE) media or
Applications media. You do not have to configure any settings to run the product.
For HP-UX, the configuration settings are preserved in the
/opt/hpsmh/conf.common/smhpd.xml file.
•
For Linux systems
HP SMH is installed by an RPM package without asking you to configure any settings. After
the installation is complete, run the perl script utility (/opt/hp//hpsmh/hpSMHSetup.pl
on ProLiant or /opt/hp/hpsmh/smhconfig/hpSMHSetup.sh on Itanium) to set the
security options used by all of the HP Web-based Agents on the system. Otherwise default
values are used for these settings.
For Linux systems, the configuration settings are carried over from the
/opt/hp/hpsmh/conf/smhpd.xml file.
•
For Windows systems
The configuration settings are carried over from the\hp\hpsmh\conf\smhpd.xml file,
and the wizard initiates the configuration.
NOTE: If a Management HTTP Server is currently installed on the machine, the configuration
settings are carried over to that system.
If HP Systems Insight Manager is installed after HP SMH is installed, the HP SMH 2048-bit key
pair will be replaced with the HP Systems Insight Manager 1024-bit key pair.
You can also install HP SMH on Integrity servers from the HP SmartSetup CD.

System Administration Management Tool changes: SAM and HP SMH
The HP-UX System Administration Manager (SAM) is deprecated in HP-UX 11i v3. HP SMH is
the system administration tool for managing HP-UX 11i. HP SMH provides web-based systems
management functionality, at-a-glance monitoring of system component health and consolidated
log viewing. HP SMH also provides a Terminal User Interface (TUI). SAM continues to provide
access to TUI (Terminal User Interface) and X-based interfaces. More details on HP SMH are
available in the Next generation single-system management on HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23) white paper
located at http://docs.hp.com/en/4AA0-4052ENW/4AA0-4052ENW.pdf.
Some of the key changes are described below:
•
•
•
•
The SAM Functional Area Launcher (FAL) is replaced by the HP SMH web-based Graphical
User Interface (GUI).
The enhanced TUI offers improved look and feel, online viewing of manpages, command
previews, and other improvements.
For HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.131) only, a new command, smh(1m) is introduced (/usr/sbin/smh).
This is an enhanced version of the sam(1m) command (/usr/sbin/sam).
The sam command in /usr/sbin/sam is deprecated. Any invocation of /usr/sbin/sam
will display the deprecation message and launch /usr/sbin/smh automatically.
Installing on HP-UX
To install HP SMH on HP-UX, you have several options:
•
•
•
•
Installing from the HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31) OE media (February 2007 or later) and from the
HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31) Applications media (February 2007 or later)
Installing from the HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23) OE media (May 2005 or later) and from the HP-UX
11i v2 (B.11.23) Applications media (September 2005 or later)
Installing from the HP-UX 11i v1 (B.11.11) OE media (September 2005 or later) and from the
HP-UX 11i v1 (B.11.11) Applications media (May 2005 or later)
Installing from the HP SMH web site, which you can find on the Software Depot home at
http://www.hp.com/go/softwaredepot .

•
•
•
•
If you installed or updated HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31) from the media, then the applications
were recommended to install. If you installed or updated HP-UX 11i v1 (B.11.11) or HP-UX
11i v2 (B.11.23) from the media, then the applications were default installed. See the HP-UX
Installation and Update Guide on the HP Technical Documentation web site at http://
docs.hp.com for instructions on how to install and update HP-UX, including recommended
and default-installed HP application bundles. See “Using the Applications media” (page 22).
You can use swinstall to install or update the bundles (for example, hpuxwsApache and
hpuxwsTomcat) using the HP-UX 11i v1 (B.11.11), HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23), and HP-UX 11i
v3 (B.11.31) media. See “Using the Applications media” (page 22).
You can go to the Software Depot Home at http://www.hp.com/go/softwaredepot to search
for and download the application bundles. You can then use swinstall to install the
applications. See “Using Software Depot” (page 22).
You can also download the bundles to a depot on your network and use Ignite-UX and
Software Distributor to install them. This process is helpful if you are creating one image to

Administration Guide on the HP Technical Documentation web site at http://docs.hp.com.
Using the Applications media
To install HP SMH and other HP Applications, you must have root privileges. These instructions
assume you are installing from a DVD.
1.
Mount the Applications DVD. To install software from the Applications DVD, you must
mount the DVD as a file system that HP-UX 11i can access:
a. Determine the DVD device name.
Use the ioscan -funC disk command to list disk devices, including the DVD devices.
b.
Create a mount point for the Applications DVD, if one does not yet exist.
The mount point is a directory that HP-UX uses as an access point for the DVD. Often
a /cdrom directory is used. If this directory does not exist, create it using the mkdir
command.
c.
Use the mount command to mount the DVD.
Specify the DVD device name and mount point. For example, the following command
mounts the /dev/dsk/c1t0d0 device as the /cdrom directory:
mount /dev/dsk/c1t0d0 /cdrom
See the mount(1M) manpage for details.
2.
3.
To determine which products and versions are on your system, use the swlist command:
/usr/sbin/swlist -l product
Use swinstall to install software from the Applications DVD.
The following example uses swinstall to install software from the source mounted at
/cdrom: /usr/sbin/swinstall -s /cdrom bundlename
See the swinstall(1M) manpage for details.
4.
Select and install software from the Applications DVD.
The swinstall program has an interface for selecting and installing software from the
DVD.
5.
Unmount and eject the Applications DVD.
You must unmount the DVD before you can eject it from the DVD-ROM drive. The DVD is
automatically unmounted whenever the server reboots.
Use the umount command to unmount the DVD. For example, umount /cdrom unmounts
the /cdrom file system. See the umount(1M) manpage for details.
TIP:
After the installation is complete, you can start using HP SMH immediately.

Configuring HP SMH
The HP SMH configuration is based on environment variables and tags that are set by the
/opt/hpsmh/lbin/envvars, /opt/hpsmh/conf.common/smhpd.xml and
/opt/hpsmh/conf/timeout.conf files. To change the default configuration, you can modify
the files to properly set the value of the following variables and tag.
Variable
Description
Script
JAVA_HOME
Points to the
/opt/hpsmh/lbin/envvars
directory where JDK is installed.
/opt/hpsmh/lbin/envvars
<session-timeout>15</session-timeout> The <session-timeout> tag defines the /opt/hpsmh/conf.common/smhpd.xml
HP SMH session timeout in minutes.
If it is defined, then the HP SMH
session is stopped after the time
period has elapsed without any user
activity. If it is not defined, then the
default for the HP SMH session
timeout is set to 15 minutes. You can
define the <session-timeout> tag
using any value between 1 and 120
minutes.
Configuring HP SMH
23
Variable
Description
Script
TIMEOUT_SMH
The TIMEOUT_SMH environment
/opt/hpsmh/conf/timeout.conf
variable defines the HP SMH server
timeout in minutes. If it is defined
and lower than the HP SMH session
timeout, the HP SMH server will be
stopped three minutes after the HP
SMH session timeout. If it is defined
and greater than the HP SMH session
timeout, then the HP SMH server is
stopped after the time period has
elapsed without any user activity. If
it is not defined or equal to zero, then
HP SMH is started without timeout.
When the "automatic startup on boot"
startup mode is in use, the timeout
mechanism will not be started.
TIMEOUT_TOMCAT
Defines the Tomcat timeout in
/opt/hpsmh/conf/timeout.conf
minutes in the
/opt/hpsmh/conf/timeout.conf
file. If it is defined, Tomcat is stopped
after this time period has elapsed
without any request to a Java web
application. By default, the timeout
for the HP-UX Tomcat-based Servlet
Engine is 20 minutes and the timeout
for the HP-UX Apache-based Web
Server is 30 minutes. If it is not
defined or equal to zero, then Tomcat
is started without timeout. In this
case, Tomcat is stopped only when
HP SMH is stopped.
Configuring the startup mode
HP SMH supports three startup modes:
•
Autostart URL
This mode is the default setting for startup. You can start HP SMH by using a web browser
and navigating to http://hostname:2301/. If autostart is configured as the default,
there is a daemon listening on http://hostname:2301 only (nothing is listening on port 2381
so that port will fail). When it contacts port 2301 (http), then the HP-UX Apache-based Web
Server is started on port 2381 (https) and the page is automatically redirected.
•
Automatic startup on boot
This mode starts HP SMH automatically during system initialization. If the automatic startup
on boot start mode is enabled and the system was rebooted using this configuration, you
can access HP SMH by using a web browser and navigating to https://hostname:2381/.
Daemons are listening on both http://hostname:2301/ and https://hostname:2381/. If you
use port 2301 (http), then the HP-UX Apache-based Web Server is started on port 2381 (https)
and the page is automatically redirected.
NOTE: For autostart URL and automatic startup on boot, you can use http://hostname:2301,
as it works in both cases. This is possible on an HP-UX system only.
•
Manual startup
You can start HP SMH from the HP-UX command line.
Use the /opt/hpsmh/bin/smhstartconfig script to configure the startup mode of the
HP SMH server and the Tomcat instance that HP SMH uses.
24
Installing on HP-UX
Syntax: smhstartconfig [ -a <on|off> -b <on|off> ] [ -t <on|off> ]
Options:
-a <on|off>
-b <on|off>
-t <on|off>
Enable/disable the autostart URL mode.
Enable/disable the automatic startup on boot mode.
Set the Tomcat startup mode where:
on
off
Start Tomcat when HP SMH starts.
Start Tomcat on demand (default).
If no options are specified, then smhstartconfig displays the current startup mode. The
smhstartconfig command does not accept -a on and -b on options simultaneously.
For more information, see the smhstartconfig(1M) manpage:
man smhstartconfig or man sam
After changing the autostart mode to "on boot" (with the smhstartconfig -b on -a
off command), without rebooting you can start the HP-UX Apache-based Web Server
processes with the /opt/hpsmh/lbin/hpsmh start command.
Patching or updating the software
HP may issue patches to HP SMH. If this is the case, you can adopt a proactive patch management
strategy and regularly check the standard patch resources:

The Trust By Name mode sets up HP SMH to only accept certain requests from
servers with the HP Systems Insight Manager certificate names designated in the
Trust By Name field. The Trust By Name option is easy to configure and can
prevent unauthorized access. For example, you might want to use the Trust By
Name option if you have a secure network, but your network has two groups of
administrators in two separate divisions. The Trust By Name option would prevent
one group from installing software to the wrong system. This option does not verify
anything other than the HP Systems Insight Manager certificate name submitted.
iii. Enter the names of the certificate of HP Systems Insight Manager servers you want
to trust.

Configuring HP SMH
The HP SMH configuration is based on environment variables and tags that are set by the
%SystemDrive%\hp\hpsmh\conf\smhpd.xml, file. To change the default configuration, you
can modify the files to properly set the value of the following variables and tags.
Variable
Description
Script
<session-timeout>15</session-timeout> The <session-timeout> tag defines the %SystemDrive%\hp\hpsmh\conf\smhpd.xml
HP SMH session timeout in minutes.
If it is defined, then the HP SMH
session is stopped after the time
period has elapsed without any user
activity. If it is not defined, then the
default for the HP SMH session
timeout is set to 15 minutes. You can
define the <session-timeout> tag
using any value between 1 and 120
minutes.
<ui-timeout>20</ui-timeout>
The <ui-timeout> tag defines the HP %SystemDrive%\hp\hpsmh\conf\smhpd.xml
SMH GUI timeout in seconds. If it is
defined, then HP SMH limits the
loading time of the webapps. If it is
not defined, then the default for the
HP SMH GUI timeout is set to 20
seconds. You can define the
<ui-timeout> tag using any value
between 10 and 3600 seconds.
<rotate-logs-size>N</rotate-logs-size> The <rotate-logs-size> tag defines the %SystemDrive%\hp\hpsmh\conf\smhpd.xml
HP SMH Rotate Logs file size. To

6 Installing HP SMH using the ProLiant Remote Deployment
Utility
This chapter provides steps to install HP System Management Homepage (HP SMH) on the
Windows operating system using the ProLiant Remote Deployment Utility.
•
“Installing remotely on Windows using ProLiant Remote Deployment Utility” (page 34)
The previous chapter provides steps to install HP SMH in-place on the Windows operating
system.
•
“Installing HP SMH in-place on Windows” (page 27)
The ProLiant Remote Deployment Utility for Windows is a graphical application that provides
enhanced ProLiant Support Pack deployment capabilities. Using a graphical interface, the utility
enables you to deploy and maintain ProLiant Support Packs and Smart Components on a local
server or remote server accessible over a network connection.
To run the ProLiant Remote Deployment Utility, invoke Setup.exe which is present as part of
the ProLiant Support Pack. The ProLiant Support Pack is identified based on the operating system
installed on the server. The components that are supported for installation are listed in the right
side of the frame. HP SMH can be installed as a part of the complete ProLiant Support Pack, or
you can install the HP SMH component individually. The HP SMH component also provides
support for preconfiguration, which allows the configurations of the component to be configured
and saved as part of the component itself before installing on target machines. This feature
facilitates the installation of the preconfigured component without any user intervention, and
the installed component has the configurations, which are saved during preconfiguration.
All configurable components are listed at the top of the left frame under All configurable
components.
NOTE: Installation of a preconfigured component overwrites the configuration settings of any
existing HP SMH installation. If you want to retain existing settings, do not preconfigure the
component.
33
Installing remotely on Windows using ProLiant Remote Deployment Utility
To preconfigure the HP SMH component:
1.

Homepage component and select Configure. The Welcome wizard appears.
Click Next. The Operating System Group dialog box appears providing you with an option
to add the groups and select the Operating level.
To add HP SMH groups:
a. In the Group Name field, enter a name for the group. For example, you might want to
use vcAdmin for a Version Control administrator group.
Note: You must assign an account to an operating system user group with administrator
privileges to access the Version Control Repository Manager from the Version Control
Agent. Do not use the Administrator account to connect from the Version Control Agent
to the Version Control Repository Manager because it could potentially lock out the
administrator account. Using the administrator account, add another account with
administrator privileges to be used for Version Control Repository Manager access.
b.
c.
Select an Operating Level from the dropdown list. This level determines the privileges
assigned to this group.
Click Add. The group name is added. A maximum of five entries can be added for each
group level.

Trust By Name field. The Trust By Name option is easy to configure and can
prevent non malicious access. For example, you might want to use the Trust By
Name option if you have a secure network, but your network has two groups of
administrators in two separate divisions. The Trust By Name option would prevent
one group from installing software to the wrong system. This option does not verify
anything other than the HP Systems Insight Manager certificate name submitted.
iii. Enter the names of the certificate of SIM servers you want to trust.
Note: The HP Systems Insight Manager certificate name cannot contain the following
characters: ~, !, `, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, ), +, =, ", :, ', <, >, ?, ,, |, and ;.

The previous chapter provides steps to install HP SMH using the ProLiant Remote Deployment
Utility.
•
“Installing remotely on Windows using ProLiant Remote Deployment Utility” (page 34)
The HP Smart-Update Manager utility enables you to deploy PSP software and firmware
components from a single, easy-to-use interface. Using a graphical interface, the utility enables
you to deploy and maintain ProLiant Support Packs and Smart Components on a local server
or one or more remote servers accessible over a network connection. This utility enables legacy
support of existing software and firmware components while simplifying the overall deployment
process. The utility also provides installation logic and version control that automatically check
for dependencies, installing only the correct updates for optimal configuration.
ProLiant Support Pack contains numerous files. All files must be present in the same directory
as the HPSUM.EXE program for the PSP to be properly installed. HP SMH can be installed as a
part of the complete ProLiant Support Pack, or you can install the HP SMH component
individually. The HP SMH component also provides support for pre-configuration, which allows
the configurations of the component to be configured and saved as part of the component itself
before installing on target machines. This feature facilitates the installation of the pre-configured
component without any user intervention, and the installed component has the configurations,
which are saved during pre-configuration.
NOTE: Installation of a pre-configured component overwrites the configuration settings of an
existing HP SMH installation. If you want to retain existing settings, do not pre-configure the
component.

After selecting the target server, click Next. This will show Discovery Progress while the
system is checked for installed items. Then, the Select Bundle Filter page is displayed.
From the Select Bundle Filter page, select the appropriate PSP bundle, addording to the
target server's operating system architecture (either x86 or x64), and check the appropriate
option for the bundle filter. There are three options provided:
I. Allow Non-Bundle Version: Shows other versions of the product that are in the bundle.
This lets you include updates that may be newer than those released in the bundle.
II. Allow Non-Bundle Products: Shows updates for products that are not part of the
bundle. This lets you update other items on your system at the same time as applying
the bundle (as a convenience or because updates in the bundle may depend on them).
III. Force All Bundle Updates: Automatically sets the force flag for updates in the bundle.
This causes the update to install even if it is not necessary as long as the supported
hardware is present and installation conditions are met.
Note: Selecting the bundle filter option is not required when the HP SMH component is
being installed alone.

Installing HP SMH with preconfiguration
The Linux Deployment Utility provides an easy and efficient method to upgrade and manage
system software. The utility enables you to deploy and maintain ProLiant Support Pack software
on local servers through use of the terminal window and on remote servers through use of the
ssh (secure shell) utility. The Linux Deployment Utility is shipped with the Linux ProLiant
Support Pack, which is available on the SmartStart CD. The Linux Deployment Utility enables
you to install components or ProLiant Support Packs in-place, but not remotely.
The Linux Deployment Utility parses the .XML files associated with each component and verifies
whether the installation of those components is supported on the specific environment. The
components that are supported for installation are listed with a status icon indicating whether
the component should to be installed, and whether it should be configured. Configuring or
preconfiguring the HP SMH component is optional.

11 Initializing the software for the first time
After HP System Management Homepage (HP SMH) has been installed and configured for the
first time, a process to create a private key and corresponding self-signed Base64-encoded
certificate is initiated. This certificate is a Base64-encoded PEM file.
Key and certificate information
•
•
•
In HP-UX, both public and private keys for HP SMH are stored in the
/var/opt/hpsmh/sslshare directory. The files are called file.pem (private key) and
cert.pem (server certificate).
In Linux, both public and private keys for HP SMH are stored in the /opt/hp/sslshare
directory or /etc/opt/hp/sslshare directory in HP SMH 2.1.3 and later. The files are
called file.pem and cert.pem.
In Windows, public and private keys are stored in the \hp\sslshare directory of the
system drive.
To protect the key, this subdirectory is only accessible to administrators if the file system
allows such security. For private key security reasons, HP highly recommends that Windows
installations of HP SMH be installed on New Technology File System (NTFS).
IMPORTANT: For Windows operating systems, the file system must be NTFS for the private
key to have administrator only access through the file.
If you feel that the private key has been compromised, the administrator can delete the
\hp\sslshare\cert.pem file and restart the server. This action causes HP SMH to generate
a new certificate and private key.
NOTE: Certificate and private key generation only occur the first time HP SMH is started or
when no certificate and key pair exists.
A certificate from a certificate authority (CA), such as Verisign or Entrust, can be used to replace
self-generated certificates. These certificate and key files are shared with other HP Management
software, such as HP Systems Insight Manager.

If you are using Internet Explorer to browse to an HP-UX system, then you can use port
2381 if you changed the default configuration to have autostart disabled and start on
boot enabled. If you keep the default-installed configuration, you can use the following
URI: http://hostname:2301/
By default, HP-UX is installed with the autostart feature enabled. A daemon listens on
port 2301 and only starts HP SMH on port 2381 when requested, then stops it again after a
timeout period. See the smhstartconfig(1M) command for more information.
You can find procedures on how to change the configuration variables in the previous
chapters of this guide.

The first time you browse to this link, the Security Alert dialog box appears, asking you to
indicate whether to trust the server. If you do not import the certificate, the Security Alert
appears every time you browse to HP SMH.
If you want to implement your own Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) or install your own
generated certificates into each managed system, you can install a certificate authority root
certificate into each browser to be used for management. If this is implemented, the Security
Alert dialog box does not appear. If the alert appears when you do not expect it, you might
have browsed to the wrong system. You can refer to the online help in your browser for
more information about installing the certificate authority root certificate.
If you are accessing this page through a link from HP Systems Insight Manager and the
Trust By Certificate option is enabled in HP SMH, the Automatically Import Management
Server Certificate option appears if trust has not been previously configured. For more
information regarding automatically importing the HP Systems Insight Manager certificate,
see the HP System Management Homepage Online Help.

Enter the user name that is recognized by the operating system.
If you have not yet added user groups into HP SMH security settings, then users must log
in with an operating system account in the Administrators group for Windows or the
operating system group root (which in turn contains the user root by default) for HP-UX
and Linux. If the credentials cannot be authenticated, the user is denied access. In most cases,
the administrator on Windows and root on HP-UX or Linux have administrator access on
HP SMH.

Logging in with Mozilla and Firefox
To log in to HP SMH with Mozilla and Firefox:
1.
Navigate to https://hostname:2381/.
If you are using Mozilla or Firefox to browse to an HP-UX system, then you can use port
2381 if you changed the default configuration to have autostart disabled and start on
boot enabled. If you keep the default-installed configuration, you can use the following
URI: http://hostname:2301/
By default, HP-UX is installed with the autostart feature enabled. A daemon listens on
port 2301 and only starts HP SMH on port 2381 when requested, then stops it again after a
timeout period. See the smhstartconfig(1M) command for more information.
You can find procedures on how to change the configuration variables in the previous
chapters of this guide.
The first time you browse to the HP SMH URI, the Website Certified by an Unknown
Authority dialog box appears, asking you to indicate whether to trust the server. If you do
not select Accept this certificate permanently, the Website Certified by an Unknown
Authority dialog box appears every time you use a browser.
2.
Click OK.
The Login page appears unless you have enabled Anonymous access, then the HP System
Management Homepage appears.
3.
Enter the user name that is recognized by the operating system.
If you have not yet added user groups into HP SMH security settings, then users must log
in with an operating system account in the Administrators group for Windows or the
operating system group root (which in turn contains the user root by default) for HP-UX
and Linux. If the credentials cannot be authenticated, the user is denied access. In most cases,
the administrator on Windows and root on HP-UX and Linux have administrator access
on HP SMH.

5.
Enter the password that is recognized by the operating system.
On HP-UX, click Sign In. On Linux and Windows, click Login. HP SMH appears.
Logging in from the HP-UX command line
You can verify whether the autostart daemon is running with the following command:
$ ps -ef | grep smh
root 1789
1 0
Mar 31
?
0:00 /opt/hpsmh/lbin/smhstartd
If the daemon is not running, you can start it from the HP-UX command line using
/opt/hpsmh/lbin/hpsmh autostart, then use a web browser to navigate to
http://hostname:2301.
You can also use the samweb command to automatically start the default browser in the main
HP SMH page.
After the daemon is running and the HP-UX Apache-based Web Server is started with autostart,
you can log in to HP SMH with either http://hostname:2301 or https://hostname:2381.
NOTE: If the autostart daemon is not configured (see the smhstartconfig -a off -b
on), use the command /opt/hpsmh/lbin/hpsmh start instead to start the HP-UX
Apache-based Web Server on ports 2301 (http) and 2381 (https).
Logging out
Select one of the following options:
Logging in with Mozilla and Firefox
65
•
•
•
In the System Management Homepage banner, for HP-UX click Sign Out and for Linux and
Windows click logout.
Close every instance of the web browser that you use to log in to HP SMH.
You can stop HP SMH from the HP-UX command line: /opt/hpsmh/lbin/hpsmh stop
This will not stop the mini-daemon smhstartd, but will stop the HP-UX Apache-based
web server. The next time you contact HP SMH through http://hostname:2301, the HP-UX
Apache-based web server will again start up on port 2381 (https). If autostart is configured,
the HP-UX Apache-based web server times out automatically after 30 minutes (default
setting).
For more information, go to the hpsmh(1m) manpage: man hpsmh.

Uninstalling HP SMH
Uninstalling manually for HP-UX systems
This section describes how to manually uninstall HP SMH on an HP-UX system.
CAUTION:
Manually uninstalling HP-UX SMH is not recommended.
When it is necessary to uninstall HP-UX SMH, HP recommends using the swremove command,
as described in “Uninstalling from an HP-UX system” (page 67).
The following procedure manually uninstalls HP SMH on an HP-UX system.
1. Stop the HP SMH service.
2. Remove (using rm -rf) the following directories:
• /var/opt/hpsmh
• /opt/hpsmh/session
• /opt/hpsmh/certs
• /opt/hpsmh/cookies
• /opt/hpsmh/sslshare
• /opt/hpsmh/tmp
CAUTION: On HP-UX systems, do not remove all files under the /opt/hpsmh directory
because files for SMH HP-UX web applications also are stored there. Only remove the
directories listed above.
Also on HP-UX systems, the /etc/opt/hp/sslshare directory is used by HP SIM and
should not be removed.
