I have just solve my issue, maybe it can help others.
I am running SMO 3.1 on Unix trying to access it through the Windows GUI. My machine is running Windows 7 32bit. (I think this works for SMO 3.1P1 and Windows 64 bit too)
First I ensured that Java version was 1.5 update 11 (not u22). That just made the GUI open, but I was getting some certificate error messages before it opened, so I just inserted the entry for my SMO server IP address and the name "snapmanager".
Thank you for taking your time on my problem . I've got support info from one SMO expert. They say like this and it works for me now :
In the other hands, SMO GUI works with Java_1.6.0_update 26
1. Select a Windows 2008R2 host for a test case. For best results, choose one with the SMO product installed, so that it is using the SMO GUI. We should be able to get out best data from the SMO GUI.
Note: To set a system up to use the SMO GUI, as compared with the Web GUI, install the SMO for Windows product on the system. Once installed, shut down and disable the SMO_Server service, as it is not needed for a client-only system.
2. Attempt to execute the GUI. Let it fail.
3. Since the GUI will not start, we cannot use it to collect data. Access the command line for the host. Enter command: ‘smo system dump’.
4. Email me the resulting ‘jar’ file for analyze of the data contained in the jar file.
