The HPE Smart Storage Administrator (HPE SSA) is a web-based application that helps you configure, manage, diagnose, and monitor HPE ProLiant Smart Array Controllers and now other storage devices as well, such as host bus adapters (HBAs), HPE Storage controllers, and future devices such as SCSI Express drives, and SAS switch devices. HPE SSA replaces the existing HP Array Configuration Utility, or ACU, with an updated design and will deliver new features and functionality for various Smart Storage initiatives as they come online. HPE Smart Array Advanced Pack 1.0 and 2.0 features are now part of the baseline features of HPE SSA, with the appropriate firmware. HPE SSA will allow you to configure and manage your storage as before, but now with additional features, abilities, and supported devices. Existing ACU scripts should only need to make minimal changes such as calling the appropriate binary or executable in order to maintain compatibility.

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.


Supports RHEL 8.0

Prerequisites:

The HPE Smart Storage Administrator for Linux requires the HPE System Management Homepage software to be installed on the server.  If the HPE System Management Homepage software is not already installed on your server, please download it from HPE.com and install it before installing the HPE Smart Storage Administrator for Linux.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: HPE SSA (GUI) for Linux can now be run without requiring the HPE System Management Homepage.  HPE SSA now supports a Local Application Mode for Linux.  The HPE System Management Homepage is still supported, but no longer required to run the HPE SSA GUI.

To invoke, enter the following at the command prompt:

ssa -local

The command will start HP SSA in a new Firefox browser window. When the browser window is closed, HP SSA will automatically stop. This is only valid for the loopback interface, and not visible to external network connections.


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