HP OneView for Microsoft System Center 7.4 is Now Available

on ‎07-18-2014 01:02 PM

HP OneView is the game changing innovation that introduces a software-defined approach to configurations and processes for hardware provisioning.  Our existing System Center integration, previously known as HP Insight Control for Microsoft System Center, has transformed to support the new advanced use cases that HP OneView introduces.


We are pleased to announce that HP OneView for Microsoft System Center 7.4 is now available.


Version 7.4 includes the following new features:

  • Rebranded to indicate new support for HP OneView features
  • Enhanced SCVMM server provisioning integrates with HP OneView server profiles
  • Updates to the HP Fabric Management Add-in for SCVMM now support fabric visualization for Virtual Connect modules that are managed by HP OneView
  • New HP OneView Management Pack for SCOM provides health monitoring and alerting from an infrastructure      perspective and relationships more clearly


HP OneView for Microsoft System Center 7.4 is now available for download. Please remember that this is fee-based software. Customers may use it on an evaluation basis for 60 days, but after that they must either remove it or purchase the appropriate licenses. You do not need to download the entire set of images. The “HP OneView for Microsoft System Center 7.4 – July 2014” image for the System Center integrations is HP_OneView_for_Microsoft_System_Center_7.4_July_2014_Z7550-01413.iso (approximately 510 MB).


There are two ways to download the iso image, depending on whether you navigate from HP OneView or from Insight Control. Regardless of the download site used, the iso image is identical for each.


The core capabilities of our System Center integrations (for SCOM, SCCM, and SCVMM) have not changed or been removed, but we have added new features that take advantage of HP OneView. The new Add Capacity wizard extends the functionality of the HP Fabric Management Add-in for SCVMM to perform end to end Hyper-V host deployment using a simple 4 step wizard. This correlates the SCVMM and HP OneView server profiles to automatically configure Virtual Connect, Windows networking, and 3PAR shared SAN volumes.


The new HP OneView Management Pack for SCOM uses HP OneView as the data source for health monitoring and alerting. This first release supports Virtual Connect and C7000 enclosures.  It also eliminates the use of the HP Device Monitor, and uses native SCOM resources pools for improved availability and scalability.
