SMUI (System Mirror User Interface)

PowerHA V7.2 includes a browser-based GUI to monitor cluster environments, which is called PowerHA SMUI.

SMUI provides following functions:
- Monitors the status for all clusters, sites, nodes, and RGs in your environment.
- Scans event summaries and reads a detailed description for each event.
- Searches and compares log files. We can search in hacmp.out, cluster.log, clstrmgr.debug, syslog,caa....T
- View properties for a cluster (version, node names, repository disk information)
- We can create zones to split clusters by geographical location, by business areas etc..
- With the Health Summary, the health of our cluster is visualized

====================================

Installation:

SMUI clients: A node that is part of an AIX or Linux PowerHA cluster.
SMUI server: A server running Linux or AIX that provides SMUI.

Although the SMUI server can be a cluster node, it a best practice to place it on a separate stand-alone AIX or Linux system. Also, ideally the SMUI server must have internet access to download more open source packages as required.

Packages installed on SMUI server:
  cluster.es.smui.common 7.2.3.0
  cluster.es.smui.server 7.2.3.0


Packages installedon SMUI client (PowerHA nodes):
  cluster.es.smui.agent 7.2.3.0
  cluster.es.smui.common 7.2.3.0

Then folllowed this:

##
##  The IBM PowerHA SystemMirror for AIX graphical user interface
##  (GUI) server installation is starting. To complete the process,
##  you must install additional files when the installation completes.
##  These additional files were not included in the server fileset
##  because they are licensed under the General Public License (GPL).
##  However, they are necessary in order for the GUI server to run.
##  You can automatically download the required files by running the
##  following script:
##
##      /usr/es/sbin/cluster/ui/server/bin/smuiinst.ksh
##
##  If smuiinst.ksh is behind a firewall, but you have a proxy, the
##  "-p" flag can be used to specify an HTTP proxy (the "http_proxy"
##  environment variable is also honored). Run "smuiinst.ksh -h -v"
##  to get more information.
##
##  If no proxy is available, the smuiinst.ksh script can be copied
##  to a system outside of the firewall and used from there to
##  download the needed files (using the "-d" flag). Those files can
##  then be transferred to the GUI server system and installed using
##  "smuiinst.ksh -i". Note that the external system does not have to
##  be AIX-based, but must have basic UNIX tools support, along with
##  PERL 5.
##
##  This is a one-time only setup procedure. Once it is done, it will
##  not need to be repeated.

I installed these manually with yum (not these versions but higher versions)
        "info-4.13-3.aix5.3.ppc.rpm" is partially downloaded.
        "cpio-2.11-2.aix6.1.ppc.rpm" appears to be downloaded already.
        "readline-6.2-2.aix5.3.ppc.rpm" is partially downloaded.
        "libiconv-1.13.1-2.aix5.3.ppc.rpm" is partially downloaded.
        "bash-4.2-5.aix5.3.ppc.rpm" is partially downloaded.
        "gettext-0.17-6.aix5.3.ppc.rpm" is partially downloaded.
        "libgcc-4.9.2-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm" is partially downloaded.
        "libgcc-4.9.2-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm" is partially downloaded.
        "libstdc++-4.9.2-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm" is partially downloaded.
        "libstdc++-4.9.2-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm" needs to be retrieved.


libgcc, libstdc can be downloaded from http://www.bullfreeware.com/pkg?id=2289

Tried this as well: /usr/es/sbin/cluster/ui/server/bin/smuiinst.ksh -i /home/labuser
After the installation completed successfully, opened a web browser and used this URL (IP is the address where SMUI is installed): https://10.10.42.47:8080/#/login

After login first I had to create zone then add cluster to that zone using hostname.....
