Re: Hp-snmp-agents and hp-health for debian 6

You should be aware that only RHEL and SLES are "supported" on Proliant hardware by HP. A group of other distributions, including Debian, are "enabled" - meaning that HP offers the essential hardware management tools for them too. But these versions are not as completely tested as the versions for the "supported" Linux distributions, so HP provides them "as is".

 

You can find the packages for Debian at the Software Delivery Repository:

http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/index.html

 

Note that the SPP is for the fully supported Linux distributions only. For Debian and other "enabled" distributions, the nearest equivalent is the Management Component Pack (MCP).

 

You can register the SDR as a Debian-style repository, so you'll be able to use the standard package management tools to keep the MCP up to date. (You can do the same with yum for RHEL and SPP too.) You'll find the instructions using the "Getting Started" link on the front page of the SDR.

Re: Hp-snmp-agents and hp-health for debian 6

The standard Debian distribution includes several tools that can monitor SmartArray hardware RAID controllers.

 

My Debian test system is already migrated to Debian 7, but I think the package names are still mostly the same. Look for packages "array-info", "cciss-vol-status" and/or "cpqarrayd" - I think at least two of them existed in Debian 6 too.
