PSP for RHEL6?

Hi there,

as RHEL6 has just being published, are there any plans for Proliant Support Pack tools to be made available?

What's the timeframe we should expect?

thanks! :)

Shalom,

If history is our guide, be prepared to wait 60-90 days.

I tried an install today, blew up in vmware in a rather ugly fashion.

Re: PSP for RHEL6?

There is now a Linux PSP V8.62 out that supports RHEL 6.

I installed it on a 64-bit RHEL 6 on a VMware guest (I don't know wether PSP's are supported within VMs).

IMHO as a great improvement, it contains generic kmod drivers that should allow future kernel updates.

On the other hand, with this PSP and kernel 2.6.32-71.7.1 I had to remove the kmod-mptbase driver to be able to successfully reboot.

I've also noticed these warnings during reboots:

WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/mo
dprobe.d/fc-hba.conf.old, it will be ignored in a future release.

Suggestion for PSP deployment: why not (HP to) create a yum repo somewhere in order to install the Linux PSPs?

Best Regards,

Arnold

Just noticed that this option already exists:

@Arnold: OMFG, I cannot believe this sudden burst of sanity from HP!

Gone are the days of crawling around hp.com searching for the latest PSP package, or needing an HP SIM server to deploy them.

Awesome news, thanks!
