The HP Server Management Application and Agents (hpasm) contain the following drivers and agents:
- Advanced Server Management Application (Health Driver)
- Foundation Agents
- Health Agent (formerly in the Server Agents package)
- Standard Equipment Agent (formerly in the Server Agents package)
- Server Peer Agent (formerly in the Server Agents package)
- Storage Agents
- NIC Agents
- Lights-Out Agents
Login as the system administrator (root), download the RPM to a directory on your hard drive and change to that directory.
If a previous version of the Health Driver or Insight Management agents has been installed, they must be removed before this package can be installed. Any packages dependent on the Health Driver must also be removed. To check which version of the Health Driver (if any) is on the system, type:
rpm –q hpasm
The rpm -q command may also be used to check for the existence of dependent packages. There is no need to uninstall packages that are not present on the system.
To remove the previous version and any packages dependent on it, type the following, in order:
rpm –e hponcfg (if installed)
rpm –e cmanic (if installed)
rpm –e hprsm
rpm –e hpasm
NOTE: You should install the net-snmp agents from your OS prior to installing the hpasm package.
To install the package, type:
rpm -ivh hpasm-< version >.rpm
To check whether the package is loaded properly, type:
If you attempt to install the RPM on an unsupported system, you will get an error message. The driver will not be operational and it is advisable to uninstall the driver at your earliest convenience.
Running the health driver: Once installed, the health driver will be automatically loaded every time the server boots. Several /proc entries are available when the driver is running.
Running the agents: The agents require an SNMP stack to be available. If SNMP support is not installed on the system, the agents will not load. The Net-SNMP agent is available on the Linux OS CD. If the agents are not loaded, the health driver will still function normally.
