After installing the HP System Management Homepage on Linux and logging on to the website, I get this displayed:
The "Component Status Summary", "No items" isn't what I hope to see. The basic info like system model and management processor also suggest that it's not getting the information it needs.
- Hardware: HPE DL360 G6
- Firmware: Oct 2016 (final release for DL360 G6)
- OS: CentOS 7.4
- SPP: Oct 2016 (to match above firmware)
What I've tried
The basic installation was done following the general advice here:
Here's how the SPP yum repo was configured (/etc/yum.repos.d/spp.repo):
[spp] name=Service Pack for ProLiant baseurl=http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/repo/spp/rhel/7Server/x86_64/2016.10.0/ enabled=0 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/GPG-KEY-ServicePackforProLiant
The GPG key was obtained via:
# curl -o /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/GPG-KEY-ServicePackforProLiant http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/repo/spp/GPG-KEY-spp
The components were installed via:
# yum --enablerepo=spp install hpdiags hp-health hpsmh ssacli
The port was opened on CentOS 7's firewall via:
# firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-rich-rule=' rule family="ipv4" source address="18.104.22.168/32" port protocol="tcp" port="2381" accept' # firewall-cmd --reload
(22.214.171.124 is an internal management station where I'm logging in to the SMH via web browser.)
SMH was configured to work in this environment via:
# /opt/hp/hpsmh/sbin/smhconfig --port2301=false # /opt/hp/hpsmh/sbin/smhconfig --user-group=smhadmins
Connecting to https://smhserver:2381 works great and I can log in, so the user-group and firewall rules are all good.
Once logged in, I saw the above incomplete info. A bit of Google led me to this discussion: https://community.hpe.com/t5/Server-Management-Systems/System-Management-Homepage-is-blank/td-p/4616818. Based on that info (even though it was for Windows), I installed and configured the SNMP agents:
# yum --enablerepo=spp install hp-snmp-agents # /sbin/hpsnmpconfig # service hpsmhd restart
(I set up the Read/Write community and Read Only community, but I left management station IPs blank.)
What should I try next?
