I'm working with an Ubuntu-based system running on an HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8 server. I prefer to install HP's management agents when I can for full hardware monitoring/configuration capabilities.
Per HP's documentation, I added the download tree for the Ubuntu Management Component Pack to:
apt-get update, I was able to run:
apt-get install cpqacuxe hp-ams hp-health hp-snmp-agents hpacucli hponcfg
So I run the
hponcfg -w ilo.xml to retrieve ILO settings, with result:
root@zetavault1:~# hponcfg HP Lights-Out Online Configuration utility Version 4.2.0 Date 6/10/2013 (c) Hewlett-Packard Company, 2013 ERROR: Could not find the Management Processor Device Node. Please check if the iLO driver module is installed and running properly. ACTION REQUIRED: Install/Re-install hp Lights-Out driver package('hp-ilo' RPM) for iLO.
The takeaway is that the ILO device isn't initialized or available to the OS due to the missing
hp-ilo package. My system's info is:
# uname -a && cat /etc/issue Linux zetavault1 3.10.28-42-zetavault #1 SMP Mon Jan 27 09:33:22 GMT 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS \n \l
- Are there any workarounds for this?
- For people who run Ubuntu on HP gear, are there other things I should be watching out for?
- Does HP not fully support Ubuntu as an OS target?
