No, this is not possible. LMS and CSM must be installed on separate servers. However, you can integrate the two via DCR master/slave and single-sign on if desired.

Hi, yup i concur with jclarke.

the easiest way to check, as long as the related port is not lapsed together, then you can installed it in one server.

example LMS and CSM lapsed portz\s on snmp, syslog and etc. even also your other network monitoring system cannot be installed together.

Thank you for your help.

HP OpenView uses SNMP port too and you can install LMS and OV on the one server.

yup, that is correct also. but i just dont want to complecate myself if the server went crazy. it is a bit hassle when want to reconfigure again the LMS. anyway, cheers.

It's not just the SNMP trap port. It has to do with other, inter-process communication ports, server resources, and testing. CSM and LMS both consume a large amount of resources, and a conscious decision was made by the CSM team not to test the two on the same server.

But afaik you need to have identical version for Common Services between CWLMS and CSM right?
