HP Event notifier cannot start

Problem:
You cannot install HP Event Notifier on the Windows Server (2012+)
Solution:
First, you need to add SNMP Service feature to your server.
Then to be sure it runs correctly, add localhost to allowed senders for SNMP packets:



Next, install HP providers, for example from this link:
https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_c93c5f85ea0d471baddb6eadfe
Then, run Event Notifier as an administrator:

After configuring, for sending test, run Test WBEM Events as an administrator.

If you encounter an error during sending test or tests are not sent do recipient, restart this service:
and the same with SNMP service

Remote Desktop Services deployment does not exist


When you are on the server and want to list active session using Get-RDUserSession command, you can see an error telling you that your have no RDS installed (even on RDS session broker), like the one below:


Don't be fooled by this - it shows only because you don't have enough privileges. Just run Powershell session as an administrator and bam! You can see desired list.


BTW: My small advice here - if you see PS errors, but you're sure, that cmd-let should work, check it with elevated privileges.
