Fedora on a DL 380 : Management Agents & bcm5700 driver

I've install Fedora on a DL380. Everything went just fine. Now, I would like to install HP management agents. Since Fedora is not on the list of the supported distro, there's no Fedora rpm to download.

Does anyone tried to install Red Hat rpm on a Fedora distro ? My feeling is that it should be working but I don't know witch version of Red Hat fits best (RH Ent 3, RH Ent 2.1 or RH 8).

Finaly, Fedora install the t3 drivers for the NIC. Altough it seem ok, should I go on with
the bcm5700 driver ?

Thank

You will need bcm5700 if you want the NIC management agent. Tg3 will work but not for the
management agent (it will not appear on the webpage).

I would get the agent rpm for the distro that fedora span off. I dont know which one. I would
say it is from the distro.

Fedora is the spawn of RH9.

I'd start by trying that. Failing that, try 8.

Fedora is most definately not a spawn of RH's Enterprise products.

I also agree with Oliver about the bcm5700 drivers.

NOTE: I've not actually tried this sort of setup. Have not had the opportunity.

Thank for your reply.

I've just install the bcm5700 driver with success.

After that I tried the Red Hat Ent 2.1 support pack. I did not get really far, the install.sh program hang when parsing the XML files.

I will try with the RH8 Support Pack (since there is no RH9 Support Pack on HP site) and get back to you.

Thank for your input,

I've been trying with both RH 2.1 Ent and RH 8 Support Pack with the same results.

From the command line I start ./install700.sh. This program start a GUI interface that said something like "Wait...Parsing XML Files". And from this point it loop forever - until I kill the process.
There is no error, it just loop on the XML files parsing routine.

Can I just skip the GUI interface and just go on with the RMP ?

Thanks for your help,
