Thread: HP System Management Homepage on Tumbleweed

  1. #1

    Default HP System Management Homepage on Tumbleweed

    I am trying to get HP System Management Homepage to install on Tumbleweed on an HP ProLiant. The readme in the HP repo states there's an openSUSE MCP repo available, but it looks like they've eliminated it. It also doesn't seem to like installing out of the SLES 12 or 15 repos.

    Has anyone managed to get HPSMH to install and run under openSUSE? I need to get it working, as a particular server system I use is expected to rebase on openSUSE from CentOS, so I'd like to get a leg up.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    You should provide references for the guides you're using.

    A quick Internet search turns up the following, although it's not dated it looks generic enough that the instructions could still apply todya. It states that any warning you get can be ignored because they would likely be related to naming labels, and wouldn't affect the installation or functionality. The packages to be downloaded look like several years old (SUSE 11) but sometimes with HP products if you can get something installed, it will have its own updating to make you current.

    I've attempted to adapt the following:

    https://www.centos.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=55506

    Replacing with SLES SPP.

    The openSUSE.ReadMe file at http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/repo/spp/ says:

    For the community/regional Linux distributions, which are enabled: ( see http://www.hp.com/go/communitylinux )

    Asianux
    CentOS
    Debian
    Fedora
    openSUSE
    Ubuntu

    All HP ProLiant drivers are submitted into the upstream kernel,
    therefore, no Service Pack for ProLiant [SPP] (nor supplements) exist.
    Instead, a bundle of HP value-add deliverables called the Management
    Component Pack [MCP] is provided for these enabled distributions
    and can be found either directly on the HP website or in that
    section of the Software Delivery Repository.
    Oracle Linux drivers are submitted into the upstream kernel,
    therefore, no Service Pack for ProLiant [SPP] (nor supplements) exist.
    Instead, a bundle of HP value-add deliverables called the Management
    Component Pack [MCP] is provided for these enabled distributions
    and can be found either directly on the HPE website or in that
    section of the Software Delivery Repository (mcp).

    For more information on Oracle Linux see http://www.hpe.com/servers/ol
    However, there is no opensuse at http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/repo/mcp/.

    When using any of SLES repos, almost all of the RPMs install, and following this thread:

    https://community.hpe.com/t5/ProLian...2#.XLyfquhKhhE

    I can get hpsmhd to sort of install by creating the smhd user/group prior to install and using the --nopre on RPM, however it does not install or configure or whatever an hpsmhd.service and so it doesn't run.

    I've managed to get the webserver part of it working, and can log in. However, the SNMP portion is not working, as it provides no information whatsoever. No components listed. Anyone have thoughts on that?

    You need to provide the Proliant model number for a better answer, but...

    Your link
    http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/repo/mcp/
    leads to
    http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/repo/mcp/SUSE.ReadMe
    leads to
    http://www8.hp.com/us/en/search/sear...for%20ProLiant
    Which has a number of possible alternative pages. Clicking on the link to the far right leads to a DL380 page with additional possible alternative downloads links
    http://www8.hp.com/us/en/search/sear...ack%20ProLiant

    Additionally,
    As I noted above, There is an HP comment that says you should be able to ignore all warnings and install successfully but if you run into any show-stoppers, this HP Help Forum thread from a very, very long time ago describes overcoming script fails due to things like mis-identifying the OS (You're installing on openSUSE when the installs are intended for SLES or SLED)

    If you have it working that far and want to continue vs trying to find a correct package re: my last post, you can try installing these libraries which are supposed to support the HP software APIs
