I'm having issues booting a HPE blade server into the service OS as I don't think the server can pick up a DHCP address. Is there a way that I can configure it with a static IP address?
thanks in advance
I'm new to ICsp and just trying to set it up to work with a few HPE Gen9 blades in a c7000 chassis with Virtual connect (controlled by OneView). I've installed the ICsp Appliance (on a standalone ESXi host) and also built a Windows vm as an ICsp Media Server.
So I'm at the stage of wanting to add the bare metal blade servers into the ICsp Appliance so I can deploy VMware ESXi 6.5. I select the Add Server option and give it the iLO address and login credentials and all this is fine but it failed to boot into the Maintencance OS as it fails to complete step 4 and times out saying "Failed to wait for the HP SA Agent: The agent did not appear on the network (is not listening on its port)."
I suspect this is a networking issue but not sure how to troubleshoot this.
How does the Appliance try to connect to the SA agent?
The blades are installed with FLB650 flex fabric adapters which will give the blade a total of 8 nics - Is the appliance expecting 1 or all these nics to get an IP address through DHCP and trying to connect through that? As I don't think DHCP is working correctly yet?
I have set up DHCP on the Appliance but can't tell if it's issues any addresses yet - is there a way to tell if it's issued an address to a server? I'm certain this will be something to do with networking but am hoping I can get a bit of an insight as to what I need to tell our networking team what needs to happen for the Appliance to be able to conect the SA Agent.
thanks in advance for any info
I am trying to provision Windows server when it boots into Windows ServiceOS, it is not able to communicate to ICSP server. It seems it is unable to get the HPSA gateway and port
Running ICSP 7.6, Installing Any Windows version
Hello, I am working on certifiying ICSP for our build process and wanted to know is it possible to get a blade in ICSP based off of a MAC address? We will have a portal that sends our build server a MAC address and will need to convert the MAC address into the correct blade as we will send it additional information like OS, configuraiton, etc.
I am running HP SUM 7.5.1 on CentoOS 7.
I can add Nodes for iLO and VMware and update firmware with no issues.
When I add a Windows Node I get an error on the initial inventory -
Unable to login or identify node as a supported device.
Credentials are correct and Windows Security log confirms that the authentication was successful.
Any ideas? I have scoured google and tried countless variations of the configuartion.
Thanks in advance.
I am looking for support for the HPE Scripting Toolkit 10.40. I am booting a BL460c Gen8 server and can pxe boot the kernel and the built-in bootstrap.sh does execute. However, it ends however with the messages:
*****include file not found*****
bash: no job control in this shell
I am trying to use nfs to mount the scripts folder. Once the bootstrap.sh stops, the folder is not mounted but I can mount it manually from the command line. I suspect I may have some options set incorrectly in the pxelinux.cfg but I have ran out of ideas and am fairly new to Linux. Any direction would be most appreciated.
I want to add a HPSUM CLI script to run update after OS deployed. I call HPSUM.bat from UNC path but it show error about "cannot parse the option".
\\hpsumserver\c$\Repository\hpsum /use_latest /allow_non_bundle_components /allow_update_to_bundle /use_location "\\hpsumserver\c$\Repository" Error: cannot parse the option: /use_latest. Use 'hpsum /help' for more details on command syntax.
Thanks in Advance,
I am facing an error deploying an esxi6 hp custom image (builds 3073146,3380124) using the builtin os deployment plan. The error message is "User-supplied %post script failed. (Error code 256)"
Everything looks good until the point where the post section of the kickstart file is processed. I completely removed the post section from the kickstart file and still get the same error. So i logged in via the console and noticed that another post section is created by the deployment process. Interestingly the generated commands dont´t generate an error.
Does anybody else experience the same behaviour?
Our company is running Windows 2008 Server R2 Standard EN-US on a HP ProLiant DL360 G7 Server. When using HP Smart Update Manager (SUM) 7.4.0 to install the latest drivers and software, I've the following error for "HP Insight Management Agents for Windows Server x64 Editions (cp026785)": Failed dependency SNMP service (cf screenshots in attachment). Therefore, I can't deploy this update. As a result, there's no data in HP System Management.
Note that I did the exact same updates with HP SUM 7.4.0 on another Windows 2008 Server R2 Standard EN-US running on a HP ProLiant DL360 G7 Server and it worked, the cp026785 package was successfully installed.
Can someone help me to solve this issue? I can't figure out what's the root cause. The error message is too simple. What SNMP service is invloved? I tried to start the SNMP Trap service in Windows (services.msc) but it didn't solve anyhting.
Thanks for your help.
Is it possible to run the HP Smart Update Manager as a Windows Service so that its always running and maintains it's state i.e. device invetoried etc.
Is it possible to run HPSUM 7.3 as a windows service on a single server i.e. so we could have it always running and connect to it remotely to inventory other servers et
I try to run the latest HPSUM version SPP2015060. I downloaded the iso file and extracted it's contents to an folder on the server. When running the launch_hpsum.bat i receive the following error message:
Error: Cannot launch hpsum_service_x64.exe locally. Reason: General failure. (SocketError 10013 : Er is geprobeerd toegang te verkrijgen tot een socket op een volgens de toegangsmachtigingen niet toegestane manier.
The last message is un dutch but translates to something like: An attempt was made to access a socket with a properly access permissions unauthorized way
I disabled the trendmicro antivirus, firewall etc. but this message keeps me from running the support pack.
Also tryed to run with elevated rights but still the same message ....
OS is Windows 2008r2
Server is : proliant ML110 G7
4Gb ram and plenty of free disk space
When trying to run hpsum 7.30 i have the same result, PSP 9.10 crashes the complete server during inventory of CP010988.
Does anyone know how i can get the server updated using any of these methods ?
After discovering all nodes in four ranges (four subnets, so each is x.x.x.1 to y.y.y.255), 100 nodes are found, many OA and iLO are identified and in "Ready to start inventory", but some nodes are UNKNOWN and in "Scouting" overnight (over 17 hours).
With nodes in Scouting, SUM refuses to shutdown. Since it seems unlikely these wil ever complete, should I fource the SUM engine to exit?
I'm running SUM from Service Pack for Prolaint 2015.04 under Windows 7 in a VM.
I use HP SUM that comes in the HP SPP to push drives and firmware to new servers. Having many HP servers deployed (mix of DL and BL server), I would like to find a way to centrally manage, inventory, and deploy drivers and firmware to servers to have a consistent baseline across all hardware. Right now it's adhoc deploy latest SPP to new servers and when the next server get's built and another SPP gets released, multiple versions exist in our environment.
HP SUM in the SPP works very well and I was wondering if there was a way to install or deploy HP SUM as a service where anyone who deploys a new server can log into the web interface from their own system without having to go to the server where HP SPP exists? In a perfect world, I would like HP SUM to act like HP SIM where anyone with access can log into an interface and manage software similar to HP SUM but without having to launch the batch file to fire up the HP SUM instance. I would almost like HP SUM to install as a service on a server so it is always online and serving up the management web page.
I have also played with HP SIM which provides the central management aspect but it seems older and hader to use when all I want to do is centrally manage and view software baselines accross hardware. Is this the better way to go?
Also, what product is newer or better to use, HP SUM or HP SIM? I can't tell if HP SIM is being phased out since the interface hasn't changed at all compared to HP SUM.
Sorry if the questions seem dumb. I'm trying to get a handle on the best process for updating servers and keeping them updated.
Thanks in advance!!
- init script tries to call netconfig.sh and mount_url.sh wrong path (bin vs sbin)
Previous version seems to be fine.
I'm trying to download the latest version of HP SUM (7.2.0) to run on my Windows 8 workstation.
The download page only shows 7.1.0 available as a ZIP for download.
I downloaded the ISO to use on each server in Offline mode from a USB key, and I can see that it is 7.2.0. -- but how do I get the 7.2.0 ZIP for my workstation?
I am installing ESXi 5.5 U2 OS Build plan on my BL460c Gen9 blade server and the installation gets to step 19 of 20 and the ESXi installation repeats.
I read in the troubleshooting section that this could be because of multiple local disks available.
However, I have already set my server profile local storage to RAID 1, bootable, and updated that.
Any suggestions for how to correct?
I'm installing ICSP 7.4 and it works with G6,G7,Gen8, Gen9 if ICSP server is on the same subnet as the deployings servers.
If I set the deploying server on another subnet differnet from the ICSP , it only works with G6,G7,Gen8, NOT GEN9.
I use "iphelper" to point to the ICSP-server.
What have i missed?
I'm trying to perform a scripted install of Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise onto a BL460C G9 using HP Server Provisioning Appliance v7.4. Since the G9 is now using UEFI boot instead of legacy BIOS, the provided scripts from HP don't seem to allow installation of Windows 2008 R2 onto a G9 - even if I change the boot mode to LEGACY.
Problem appears to be b/c Windows 2008 R2 can only be installed to an MBR partition, but the build script detects UEFI and wants to create a EFI system partition and a windows partition that uses GPT partition table instead of MBR. Windows installation fails b/c 2008 can only be installed to MBR disk.
I am able to capture a Windows 2008 R2 image from a BL460C G8 (single partition, no ESP partition), but when trying to deploy the image (single WIM file) to a G9 in LEGACY BIOS mode, the HP scripts still detects UEFI and searches for a WIM_ESP file that contains the EFI system partition.
BTW, Windows 2012 R2 works fine.
I cannot seem to run HP SUM (09.2014 version) on most of my servers - when it runs Inernet Explorer 10 it just states loading and the arrow thing goes round and round but does not proceed.
I decided to try Firefox on one of my test servers (which also had the issue above) and that works fine..
Do you know what settings on IE is blocking the bit where it needs to proceed past the initial Loading screen? I have so far given everything a shot (security settings and pop-up etc) but I still get the same issue?? I cannot install Firefox on all servers (there are thousands of them and security will not allow it)...so I need this to work on IE10....any ideas?
