HPE System Management Tools on HP Proliant DL380 G7 with Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 LTS.

Good day.
I'd like to install HPE System Management Tools on HP Proliant DL380 G7 with Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 LTS.
Before making any changes I updated firmware from SPP 2016.10.0 (it was last SPP where DL380 G7 is supported). After updates I have those versions:
ILO version – 1.91 (was updated separately)
BIOS version - 2018.05.21 (was updated separately)
SMART Array – 6.64 (updated from SPP)
HPE QLogic - 2.18.1 (updated from SPP)

Next I had read those articles (the second one in Russian)
https://thejoyofstick.com/blog/2013/04/28/install-hp-support-software-in-your-ubuntu-server/
https://blog.it-kb.ru/2018/02/27/installing-hpe-system-management-tools-smh-ssa-on-the-hp-proliant-dl380-g5-server-with-debian-linux-9-3-stretch/
and tried to use them as manual.

Script add_repo.sh detected version of my Ubuntu and added new repository
deb http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/repo/mcp bionic/current non-free

Next with the command
cat /var/lib/apt/lists/downloads.linux.hpe.com_*_Packages | grep -E "Package:|Description:"

I can see what packages will be installed on my server. And this list is too small:

yuri@amber:~$ cat /var/lib/apt/lists/downloads.linux.hpe.com_*_Packages | grep -E "Package:|Description:"
Package: amsd
Description: Agentless Management Service for servers with iLO5
Package: hponcfg
Description: RILOE II/iLo online configuration utility
Package: ssa
Description: Smart Storage Administration Utility
Package: ssacli
Description: Command Line Smart Storage Administration Utility
Package: ssaducli
Description: Array Smart Storage Administration Diagnostics Utility CLI
yuri@amber:~$

I can't use amsd, because it for ILO5 (my DL380 Gen7 has ILO3) and in final I 'll have only hponcfg and some versions of ssa.
All thats mean that I can use HP System Management Homepage (package hpsmhd is not in list of available packages). Also snmpd not installed too.

So my question is - is it possible to install HPE System Management Tools on HP Proliant DL380 G7 with Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 LTS? I mean - install with hpsmhd, hp-health, hp-smh-templates, hp-snmp-agents and all another packages???

Regards.

HI Yuris

I have checked the latest release notes and do not the see Ubuntu listed.

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c05330584

I have also checked the older version of SMH for that server generation that Ubuntu version is not listed,  though its one of the RHEL flavour you can try on Ubuntu  with all the packages you have mentioned below but we dont know the functionality or the behavior is expected the same when compared to the listed supported OS.
