Note: HP renamed the product called now HP operations manager way too many times. Also it is very inconsistent with using abbreviations. Here we will assume that the term "HP Operations manager" and abbreviations HPOM, OMU, and OVO  mean the same thing :-)

Similar to Tivoli documentation, HPOM documentation is badly written, fragmentary and incomplete. You need to rely on Operations Manager forum for most questions as you probably never find the answers the docs.  Often the only way got get a satisfactory answer quickly is to open a ticket. 

Try to attend or at least get student manual for the class Linux Administration Essentials (OM90LINUXESS). It consists of two parts. And those two are the best printed manual for HPOM  money can get.  The second class and the second manual (also in two parts) Linux Advanced Administration is also very useful, but the first is really essential.

Note: after installation a lot of PDF documents can be found in various folders. Among them

./contrib/OpC/OvProtect/manual-V02x.pdf

Also HTML version of man pages are also available at www/htdocs/ito_op directory and are much more useful them traditional man page text format. Built-in webserver for HPOM can display them in web browser using URL http://<server>:3443/ITO_MAN/

There are also directory with contributed tools. For a description of the tools in this directory, please check the /opt/OV/www/htdocs/ito/contrib.html web page which can also be accessed from the "contrib tools" menu option in the ITO entry page http://localhost:3443/ITO/index.html, which links to http://localhost:3443/ITO/contrib.html Default port value ( 3443) can be changed during the installation.
