Prerequisites to Monitor HP ProLiant Servers Running Linux

KB1128 - Jan 29, 2014

Objective

This article lists the packages that need to be installed on a HP ProLiant server running Linux.

Basic Requirements

Minimal installation of RedHat 6.

Installing IPMI is not required.

Packages

yum install pciutils.x86_64
yum install net-snmp.x86_64 
rpm -ivh hp-health-9.31-1572.3.rhel6.x86_64.rpm
rpm -ivh hp-snmp-agents-9.30-2412.33.rhel6.x86_64.rpm
/sbin/hpsnmpconfig

The first one is required to install hp-health (hp-health’s installation will fail requesting pciutils).

The installation of the HP agents will not install the OpenIPMI package
