Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

HP Management Agents for VMware ESX 4

Environment: ESXi 4.0 build 164009

Downloaded latest HP Management Agents here:

Extracted the tar file to /tmp/hp

When attempting to install the agents manually per the README.txt with the following command:

./ --install

I get : line 18: can't open /etc/init.d/functions

This directory does not /etc/init.d/functions does not exist.

I'm not sure where to go from here...

Any advice would be appreciated.
