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


Installation:

Verify the RPM signature using the following steps:

Download the HPE GPG 2048-bit Public Key (hpePublicKey2048_key1.pub), which is available from the HPE SDR web site: https://downloads.linux.hpe.com/keys.html

Import the public key while logged in as root by running the following command:

   # rpm --import /path_to_the_key/file_name_of_the_key

   example # rpm --import /path_to_the_key/26C2B797.pub

Verify the RPM:

Use the rpm --checksig command to validate and verify the digital signature of the signed file. The output from the command indicates the validity of the signature:

   # rpm --checksig sum-<version>.<OS>.<arch>.rpm

   example result #  rpm --checksig sum-<version>.<OS>.<arch>.rpm

 sum-<version>.<OS>.<arch>.rpm: digests signatures OK

If your file does not pass verification or you do not have the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company public key installed, you may see an error:

   # rpm --checksig sum-<version>.<OS>.<arch>.rpm

   sum-<version>.<OS>.<arch>.rpm: (SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) NOT OK (MISSING KEYS: key#s)

In this case then do not install the rpm. This means the file has been modified in some way since being released from Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company

Installing RPM :

rpm -Uvh sum-<version>.<OS>.<arch>.rpm
