HPE Insight Management Agents help IT administrators rapidly respond to potential and actual system failures, increase system stability, reduce troubleshooting complexity, and minimize downtime by providing predictive fault management of HPE proliant Gen8/Gen9 servers.

Prerequisites:

The HPE Insight Management Agents require the SNMP Service , HPE ProLiant iLO 3/4 Channel Interface and Management Controller Drivers for Windows x86 to be installed prior to this component.

In addition, the System Management Homepage (SMH) component is required for a single server web-based user interface.


To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with this SHA-256 Checksum value:

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is not required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:
Download the Smart Component to a directory on your hard drive and change to that directory. The downloaded file is a self-extracting executable with a filename based on the Smart Component Number.

From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded file. Click the "Install" button to proceed with the installation. The agents will automatically be installed.

Upgrade Requirement:
Optional - Users should update to this version if their system is affected by one of the documented fixes or if there is a desire to utilize any of the enhanced functionality provided by this version.


Important:

Change in existing feature with SNMP as data source:

The existing feature on SMH, “SMH->SNMP & Agents Settings->Threshold Text mode” will depends on Java runtime (JRE) when it is set to 'UI Mode' i.e.Disable . And in this mode it is observed that, the recent Java versions (v7.x onwards) is taking significant amount of time to load the webapp links on SMH which is affecting the agents performance.So, this feature is modified to disable the 'UI mode' and display the threshold settings only in 'Text mode' from  HPE Insight Management Agents v10.60.0.0 and later releases.


Upgrade Requirement:
Optional - Users should update to this version if their system is affected by one of the documented fixes or if there is a desire to utilize any of the enhanced functionality provided by this version.


Applied a SHA-256 digital signature to all binary files and MSI installer file packaged in agents smart component.

  • Security vulnerability which had the potential to allow Denial of Service (DoS) attacks through maliciously formatted HTTP Header information. These maliciously malformed HTTP requests will stop the management products, and for NetWare, abend the OS. Please note that for other Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, etc.) the Operating System will not be affected, and the main functionality of the targeted servers cannot be affected; only the HP Management Products can be halted.

  • Security vulnerability to which OpenSSL is generally vulnerable. This vulnerability has the potential to allow a timing attack on OpenSSL that in effect allows an attacker, through creating millions of invalid SSL/TSL connections, to perform a single RSA private key operation on a ciphertext of its choice using the server's RSA key, without actually compromising the server's RSA key. OpenSSL version 0.9.6j addresses this vulnerability and was incorporated to remedy this.

On rare occasions, the Compaq SmartStartTM 4.90 Compaq Insight Management Agents may fail to load in Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows NT 4.0. This issue may occur during the SmartStart 4.90 installation of the Compaq Support Paq or anytime the Compaq Insight Management Agents are restarted. A pop-up window reports this issue by displaying the following:
    "At least one service or driver failed during system startup - check Event Viewer"
The Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 or Microsoft Windows 2000 Event Log also reports the issue:
    "Server Agents service hung on startup."
Without the Compaq Insight Management Agents, the Compaq Insight Manager console will report the server as "inaccessible", the Compaq Insight Manager XE device status is "unknown", and the Compaq Web Agent interface cannot be accessed from a browser.

This issue promotes another symptom. When using Compaq SmartStart for Servers to configure Microsoft Windows 2000 server software, the SmartStart Assisted Path Installation process can take up to 30 minutes to complete, during which time the following message displays:
    "Installing and configuring Compaq programs. Please wait."
Do not interrupt the installation process. The Microsoft Windows 2000 installation is successful after the 30-minute waiting period, but the Compaq Insight Management Agents must be updated.

Description

HPE Insight Management Agents help IT administrators rapidly respond to potential and actual system failures, increase system stability, reduce troubleshooting complexity, and minimize downtime by providing predictive fault management of HPE proliant Gen8/Gen9 servers.

Installation Instructions

Prerequisites:

The HPE Insight Management Agents require the SNMP Service , HPE ProLiant iLO 3/4 Channel Interface and Management Controller Drivers for Windows x86 to be installed prior to this component.

In addition, the System Management Homepage (SMH) component is required for a single server web-based user interface.


To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with this SHA-256 Checksum value:

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is not required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:
Download the Smart Component to a directory on your hard drive and change to that directory. The downloaded file is a self-extracting executable with a filename based on the Smart Component Number.

From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded file. Click the "Install" button to proceed with the installation. The agents will automatically be installed.

Upgrade Requirement:
Optional - Users should update to this version if their system is affected by one of the documented fixes or if there is a desire to utilize any of the enhanced functionality provided by this version.


Important:

Change in existing feature with SNMP as data source:

The existing feature on SMH, “SMH->SNMP & Agents Settings->Threshold Text mode” will depends on Java runtime (JRE) when it is set to 'UI Mode' i.e.Disable . And in this mode it is observed that, the recent Java versions (v7.x onwards) is taking significant amount of time to load the webapp links on SMH which is affecting the agents performance.So, this feature is modified to disable the 'UI mode' and display the threshold settings only in 'Text mode' from  HPE Insight Management Agents v10.60.0.0 and later releases.


Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:

This vulnerability has the potential to allow a timing attack on OpenSSL that in effect allows an attacker, through creating millions of invalid SSL/TSL connections, to perform a single RSA private key operation on a ciphertext of its choice using the server's RSA key, without actually compromising the server's RSA key. OpenSSL version 0.9.6j addresses this vulnerability and was incorporated to remedy this.

  • New Compaq ProLiant servers
On rare occasions, the Compaq SmartStartTM 4.90 Compaq Insight Management Agents may fail to load in Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows NT 4.0. This issue may occur during the SmartStart 4.90 installation of the Compaq Support Paq or anytime the Compaq Insight Management Agents are restarted. A pop-up window reports this issue by displaying the following:
    "At least one service or driver failed during system startup - check Event Viewer"
The Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 or Microsoft Windows 2000 Event Log also reports the issue:
    "Server Agents service hung on startup."
Without the Compaq Insight Management Agents, the Compaq Insight Manager console will report the server as "inaccessible", the Compaq Insight Manager XE device status is "unknown", and the Compaq Web Agent interface cannot be accessed from a browser.

This issue promotes another symptom. When using Compaq SmartStart for Servers to configure Microsoft Windows 2000 server software, the SmartStart Assisted Path Installation process can take up to 30 minutes to complete, during which time the following message displays:
    "Installing and configuring Compaq programs. Please wait."
Do not interrupt the installation process. The Microsoft Windows 2000 installation is successful after the 30-minute waiting period, but the Compaq Insight Management Agents must be updated.
