Installing RHEL 5 on BL460c


We would like to install RHEL 5 on BL460c not using Altiris but using cobbler.

When we deploy RHEL with Altiris, the job also install some packages. These packages seem to enable things like iLO data updates, ICE monitoring...

Can someone say what we need to install to make our RHEL better work with the HP tools ?

Thanks for your reading.

HP PSP is a good starting point for making the list you mention work.

Can you list what version of PSP you have installed.

Hmmmm.. Actually, I did not install any PSP at the moment. I think that Proliant Support Pack should be one of the things I need to install.

Ok... I download the PSP tarball. Inside the Tarball, there is a lot of RPMS.

Do I need to install all of them ?
Which is the minimum requirement I need to install ?

Depends on what you want to do ;-)

The full answer can probably be found here:
-> Managing ProLiant servers with Linux

I usually install hp-health, hp-snmp-agents, hp-ilo, hponcfg and hpacucli.
