NOTE: For more details on how to install the image from a CD or DVD, or for installing using YaST, refer to the “HPE Integrity MC990 X Server Software Installation and Configuration Guide” at http://www.hpe.com/support/hpesc.

A. Prepration
In order to install the Foundation Software Version 2.14,
1. Download the SFS-2.14-ISO-2016-May-19.tgz image file and the 2016-Jun-6-SW-MD5SUMS file
      Note: You can verify the download by using the following md5sum command:
                          $md5sum --check 2016-Jun-6-SW-MD5SUMS
                 It should return:    SFS-2.14-ISO-2016-May-19.tgz: OK

2. Extract the ISO files using the command: tar –xzvf SFS-2.14-ISO-2016-May-19.tgz

3. Write the ISO file system-foundation-software-2.14-cd1-media-<OS>-x86_64.iso to a CD or a DVD, where <OS> is your operating system: rhel6, rhel7, sles11sp3, sles11sp4, sles12, sles12sp1.
       Note: For Oracle Linux 7, <OS> is rhel7.

Note: You may copy the image to a local network instead and use network tools to access the software. But the instructions below assume that you are using a CD or DVD.
Note: The update file contains a few RPMs that will be installed separately, after you finish installing the ISO image.

B. Installation
      I.  Installing System Foundation Software 2.14 on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 or 12

1) Ensure access to operating system repositories.
If you have registered your system with SUSE, the relevant SLES product repositories and a matching update repository should have been automatically configured when registration was complete.  To ensure that these product repositories are configured and enabled, review the output of the following command:

      # zypper lr

For more information on adding and managing software repositories, refer to the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Deployment Guide.

2) Add System Foundation Software as a new software repository.
The following example shows how to configure the System Foundation Software 2.14 for SLES12 product ISO as a new software repository:
         Note: system-foundation-software-2.14-cd1-media-sles12-x86_64.iso was renamed to
                    sfs-2.14-sles12.iso in the example below for cleaner formatting.

  # zypper ar -c -t yast2 "iso:/?iso=/var/sfs-2.14-sles12.iso" "SFS-2.14"
      Adding repository 'SFS-2.14' ......................................[done]
      Repository 'SFS-2.14' successfully added
      Enabled: Yes
      Autorefresh: No
      GPG check: Yes
      URI: iso:///?iso=/var/sfs-2.14-sles12.iso

3) Refresh the software repository metadata.
The following command will refresh the repository metadata so that software management tools such as zypper know about available software repositories. This command also provides users with a chance to import the GPG digital key that is used to sign the System Foundation Software:

  # zypper refresh
    Retrieving repository 'SFS-2.14' metadata ----------------------------[\]
    New repository or package signing key received:
       Repository:          SFS-2.14

  Do you want to reject the key, trust temporarily, or trust always?
  [r/t/a/? shows all options] (r):

Type either "a" to add the key to the permanent list of trusted keys or "t" to trust the key temporarily for the duration of the installation.

    Do you want to reject the key, trust temporarily, or trust always?

    Building repository 'SFS-2.14' cache ..............................[done]
    Repository 'SLES12-12-0' is up to date.
    All repositories have been refreshed.

4) Install the System Foundation Software pattern.
The following command will install the packages listed in the "System Foundation Software" pattern:
     # zypper install -t pattern System-Foundation-Software

Follow any on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

5) Reboot the system to complete the installation and boot with optimized kernel command line parameters.

     II.  Installating System Foundation Software 2.14 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or 7

1) Ensure access to operating system repositories.
If you have registered your system with Red Hat and attached all applicable subscriptions, your system should be correctly configured and able to satisfy any package dependencies during the installation of the System Foundation Software product.  To ensure that these product repositories are configured and enabled, review the output of the following command:

      # yum repolist

For more information on registering the system, managing subscriptions and software repositories, refer to the System Administrator's Guide.

2) Add System Foundation Software as a new software repository.
The following example shows how to configure the System Foundation Software 2.14 for RHEL7 product ISO as a new software repository:
    Note: system-foundation-software-2.14-cd1-media-rhel7-x86_64.iso was renamed to
               sfs-2.14-rhel7.iso in the example below for cleaner text formatting.

      # mkdir /var/sfs-2.14
      # mount /var/sfs-2.14-rhel7.iso /var/sfs-2.14
      # /var/sfs-2.14/create-yum-config-file

The create-yum-config command creates a temporary yum repository config file based on System Foundation Software ISO image loop mounted at /var/sfs-2.14.

3) Install the System Foundation Software pattern.
The following command will install the packages listed in the "System Foundation Software" group:
    # yum -c /tmp/yum-sgi.conf groupinstall "System Foundation Software"

Follow any on-screen instructions.

When installing the System Foundation Software for the first time, yum will provide users with a chance to import the GPG digital key that is used to sign the System Foundation Software:

  warning: /var/sfs-2.14/RPMS/gr_systat-1.00-sgi714r5.rhel7.x86_64.rpm:

  Is this ok [y/N]:

Type "y" to import the key to the permanent list of trusted keys and then follow any other generic on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

5) Reboot the system to complete the installation and boot with optimized kernel command line parameters.

      III.  Installing System Foundation Software 2.14 on Oracle Linux 7

The instructions for installation of System Foundation Software on a system running Oracle Linux 7 are almost identical to those in section II. above (for RHEL 6 or 7). Please ensure that the packages in the Oracle Linux release is available via yum by registering your system with the Unbreakable Linux Network.
For more information on registering the system and managing subscriptions, refer to the Oracle Linux Administrator's Solutions Guide.
If the system will be running with the Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK), please also install the optional hwperf kernel module package built for use with the UEK as follows:
        # yum install kmod-hwperf-uek
        # yum update kernel-uek

After installing all packages, reboot the system to complete the installation and boot with optimized kernel command line parameters.

C. Verification:
To verify that Foundation Software version 2.14 is installed, run the command "zypper se foundation". It should return:

S | Name                                          | Summary                                                        | Type

sgi-irqbalance:

  • Fixed an issue where sgi_irqbalance would stop running due to some recent IO driver versions returning an unexpected error when trying to set/change an IRQ CPU affinity. As a result, IRQ affinity was not being set on subsequent devices.

sgi-base-config:

  • A system running RHEL no longer displays “sgiconfig: /boot/efi is not mounted as vfat. Grub2 config cannot be updated” due to /boot/efi being unmounted before running base configuration.
  • System now checks that /boot/efi is mounted as vfat as mounting as non-vfat may end up with a corrupted grub.cfg file. System now reports a warning and does not proceed if /boot/efi is found not mounted as vfat.
  • Report an error for unmounted /boot/efi instead of reporting non-vfat mounted /boot/efi.

memlog:

  • Fixed an issue where memlogd would return a message like "NOTICE error obtaining Dram DDR4 code, row 12 col a width 4" due to missing a rank address map for 128G DIMMs.
  • Fixed an issue where memlogd would sometimes point to the wrong DIMM in case of DIMM failures.

hwperf:

  • Fixed an issue with Oracle Linux 7.6 UEK5 kernel 4.14.35-1906 where "rmmod hwperf" would get stuck on spinlock
  • Fixed an issue with Oracle Linux 7.6 UEK5 kernel 4.14.35-1844.2.5 where hwperf would display "unknown symbol uv_hwperf_exit"
  • Fixed a spinlock issue where hwperf would go to sleep after taking the spinlock
  • Made changes so the Time Stamp Counter (TSC), important for database apps, works correctly with Oracle Linux 7.6 UEK5 update2

April 2019 update:

  • sgi-base-config also includes this fix: Fixed tsc setting in sgi-sap-configuration package

Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Recommended - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.


  • Reduced udev.children-max to 32 to prevent issues like driver failing on boot with large IO configurations
  • On all SUSE versions as well as RHEL 7.3 and lower, added nohz=off on the Linux boot line to avoid hold-offs in tickless code, which may cause unpredictable behavior. Also because nohz=off, skew_tick=1 is added to avoid timer tick contention
  • Added a check of /boot/efi mount options to ensure that it is mounted as vfat
  • Addresses an issue seen with SLES 15 and RHEL 7.5, where the system would hang during shutdown with an “NMI watchdog: BUG: soft lockup” error
  • Addresses an issue where a race condition during OS shutdown would cause the following error to be displayed: "sgiconfig: /boot/efi is not mounted as vfat. Grub2 config cannot be updated"
Enhancements

  • Adds support for RHEL 7.6, SLES 12 SP4, SLES 15
  • Implements NIC naming based on physical location (e.g. chassis, rack unit, slot like 'r001i06s02p0'), allowing to directly identify the network card location in a multiple chassis setup. To activate the new naming, set UV_GEOID_NIC_NAMES to "yes” in /etc/sysconfig/uvconfig, then run uvconfig and reboot.
    Note: This feature requires distros with systemd, implemented with SLES 12 (or later) and RHEL 7 (or later).

NOTE: For more details on how to install the image from a CD or DVD, or for installing using YaST, refer to the “HPE Integrity MC990 X Server Software Installation and Configuration Guide” at http://www.hpe.com/support/hpesc.

A. Prepration
In order to install the Foundation Software Version 2.14,
1. Download the SFS-2.14-ISO-2016-May-19.tgz image file and the 2016-Jun-6-SW-MD5SUMS file
      Note: You can verify the download by using the following md5sum command:
                          $md5sum --check 2016-Jun-6-SW-MD5SUMS
                 It should return:    SFS-2.14-ISO-2016-May-19.tgz: OK

2. Extract the ISO files using the command: tar –xzvf SFS-2.14-ISO-2016-May-19.tgz

3. Write the ISO file system-foundation-software-2.14-cd1-media-<OS>-x86_64.iso to a CD or a DVD, where <OS> is your operating system: rhel6, rhel7, sles11sp3, sles11sp4, sles12, sles12sp1.
       Note: For Oracle Linux 7, <OS> is rhel7.

Note: You may copy the image to a local network instead and use network tools to access the software. But the instructions below assume that you are using a CD or DVD.
Note: The update file contains a few RPMs that will be installed separately, after you finish installing the ISO image.

B. Installation
      I.  Installing System Foundation Software 2.14 on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 or 12

1) Ensure access to operating system repositories.
If you have registered your system with SUSE, the relevant SLES product repositories and a matching update repository should have been automatically configured when registration was complete.  To ensure that these product repositories are configured and enabled, review the output of the following command:

      # zypper lr

For more information on adding and managing software repositories, refer to the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Deployment Guide.

2) Add System Foundation Software as a new software repository.
The following example shows how to configure the System Foundation Software 2.14 for SLES12 product ISO as a new software repository:
         Note: system-foundation-software-2.14-cd1-media-sles12-x86_64.iso was renamed to
                    sfs-2.14-sles12.iso in the example below for cleaner formatting.

  # zypper ar -c -t yast2 "iso:/?iso=/var/sfs-2.14-sles12.iso" "SFS-2.14"
      Adding repository 'SFS-2.14' ......................................[done]
      Repository 'SFS-2.14' successfully added
      Enabled: Yes
      Autorefresh: No
      GPG check: Yes
      URI: iso:///?iso=/var/sfs-2.14-sles12.iso

3) Refresh the software repository metadata.
The following command will refresh the repository metadata so that software management tools such as zypper know about available software repositories. This command also provides users with a chance to import the GPG digital key that is used to sign the System Foundation Software:

  # zypper refresh
    Retrieving repository 'SFS-2.14' metadata ----------------------------[\]
    New repository or package signing key received:
       Repository:          SFS-2.14

    Repository 'SLES12-12-0' is up to date.
    All repositories have been refreshed.

4) Install the System Foundation Software pattern.
The following command will install the packages listed in the "System Foundation Software" pattern:
     # zypper install -t pattern System-Foundation-Software

Follow any on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

5) Reboot the system to complete the installation and boot with optimized kernel command line parameters.

     II.  Installating System Foundation Software 2.14 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or 7

1) Ensure access to operating system repositories.
If you have registered your system with Red Hat and attached all applicable subscriptions, your system should be correctly configured and able to satisfy any package dependencies during the installation of the System Foundation Software product.  To ensure that these product repositories are configured and enabled, review the output of the following command:

      # yum repolist

For more information on registering the system, managing subscriptions and software repositories, refer to the System Administrator's Guide.

2) Add System Foundation Software as a new software repository.
The following example shows how to configure the System Foundation Software 2.14 for RHEL7 product ISO as a new software repository:
    Note: system-foundation-software-2.14-cd1-media-rhel7-x86_64.iso was renamed to
               sfs-2.14-rhel7.iso in the example below for cleaner text formatting.

      # mkdir /var/sfs-2.14
      # mount /var/sfs-2.14-rhel7.iso /var/sfs-2.14
      # /var/sfs-2.14/create-yum-config-file

The create-yum-config command creates a temporary yum repository config file based on System Foundation Software ISO image loop mounted at /var/sfs-2.14.

3) Install the System Foundation Software pattern.
The following command will install the packages listed in the "System Foundation Software" group:
    # yum -c /tmp/yum-sgi.conf groupinstall "System Foundation Software"

Follow any on-screen instructions.

When installing the System Foundation Software for the first time, yum will provide users with a chance to import the GPG digital key that is used to sign the System Foundation Software:

  warning: /var/sfs-2.14/RPMS/gr_systat-1.00-sgi714r5.rhel7.x86_64.rpm:

  Is this ok [y/N]:

Type "y" to import the key to the permanent list of trusted keys and then follow any other generic on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

5) Reboot the system to complete the installation and boot with optimized kernel command line parameters.

      III.  Installing System Foundation Software 2.14 on Oracle Linux 7

The instructions for installation of System Foundation Software on a system running Oracle Linux 7 are almost identical to those in section II. above (for RHEL 6 or 7). Please ensure that the packages in the Oracle Linux release is available via yum by registering your system with the Unbreakable Linux Network.
For more information on registering the system and managing subscriptions, refer to the Oracle Linux Administrator's Solutions Guide.
If the system will be running with the Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK), please also install the optional hwperf kernel module package built for use with the UEK as follows:
        # yum install kmod-hwperf-uek
        # yum update kernel-uek

After installing all packages, reboot the system to complete the installation and boot with optimized kernel command line parameters.

C. Verification:
To verify that Foundation Software version 2.14 is installed, run the command "zypper se foundation". It should return:

S | Name                                          | Summary                                                        | Type

Recommended - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.


hwperf:

  • An explicit dependency for pciutils was added at install time (needed by the topology command for lspci)

sgi-base-config:

  • Changed CPU idle governor default setting from ‘ladder’ to ‘menu’ to prevent health_check to report a failure
  • Addressed an issue where system would not boot if /etc/default/grub was found to be empty. If /etc/default/grub is empty, HFS warns the user to remove /the file and reinstall grub
  • i40iw driver is blacklisted due to RDMA/iWARP being unsupported on the LOM device
     

Note: The following OS patches are available to address the MDS (Microarchitectural Data Sampling) CVE-2018-12126, CVE-2018-12127,CVE-2018-12130, CVE-2019-11091 vulnerabilities:

Enhancements

  • Added support for RHEL 7.7 and RHEL 8
  • Added support for SLES 15 SP1

Version:2.21 (26 Mar 2019)
Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Critical - HPE requires users update to this version immediately.

Please review the list of fixes and check if they apply to your configuration. 


sgi-irqbalance:

  • Fixed an issue where sgi_irqbalance would stop running due to some recent IO driver versions returning an unexpected error when trying to set/change an IRQ CPU affinity. As a result, IRQ affinity was not being set on subsequent devices.

sgi-base-config:

  • A system running RHEL no longer displays “sgiconfig: /boot/efi is not mounted as vfat. Grub2 config cannot be updated” due to /boot/efi being unmounted before running base configuration.
  • System now checks that /boot/efi is mounted as vfat as mounting as non-vfat may end up with a corrupted grub.cfg file. System now reports a warning and does not proceed if /boot/efi is found not mounted as vfat.
  • Report an error for unmounted /boot/efi instead of reporting non-vfat mounted /boot/efi.

memlog:

  • Fixed an issue where memlogd would return a message like "NOTICE error obtaining Dram DDR4 code, row 12 col a width 4" due to missing a rank address map for 128G DIMMs.
  • Fixed an issue where memlogd would sometimes point to the wrong DIMM in case of DIMM failures.

hwperf:

  • Fixed an issue with Oracle Linux 7.6 UEK5 kernel 4.14.35-1906 where "rmmod hwperf" would get stuck on spinlock
  • Fixed an issue with Oracle Linux 7.6 UEK5 kernel 4.14.35-1844.2.5 where hwperf would display "unknown symbol uv_hwperf_exit"
  • Fixed a spinlock issue where hwperf would go to sleep after taking the spinlock
  • Made changes so the Time Stamp Counter (TSC), important for database apps, works correctly with Oracle Linux 7.6 UEK5 update2

April 2019 update:

  • sgi-base-config also includes this fix: Fixed tsc setting in sgi-sap-configuration package

Version:2.20 (24 Jan 2019)
Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Recommended - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.


  • Reduced udev.children-max to 32 to prevent issues like driver failing on boot with large IO configurations
  • On all SUSE versions as well as RHEL 7.3 and lower, added nohz=off on the Linux boot line to avoid hold-offs in tickless code, which may cause unpredictable behavior. Also because nohz=off, skew_tick=1 is added to avoid timer tick contention
  • Added a check of /boot/efi mount options to ensure that it is mounted as vfat
  • Addresses an issue seen with SLES 15 and RHEL 7.5, where the system would hang during shutdown with an “NMI watchdog: BUG: soft lockup” error
  • Addresses an issue where a race condition during OS shutdown would cause the following error to be displayed: "sgiconfig: /boot/efi is not mounted as vfat. Grub2 config cannot be updated"
Enhancements

  • Adds support for RHEL 7.6, SLES 12 SP4, SLES 15
  • Implements NIC naming based on physical location (e.g. chassis, rack unit, slot like 'r001i06s02p0'), allowing to directly identify the network card location in a multiple chassis setup. To activate the new naming, set UV_GEOID_NIC_NAMES to "yes” in /etc/sysconfig/uvconfig, then run uvconfig and reboot.
    Note: This feature requires distros with systemd, implemented with SLES 12 (or later) and RHEL 7 (or later).
