Insight Manager Agent software

If you are looking for the Insight Management Agent for the Linux OS, look no futher.

You can download and install the Linux health agent from this web address.
http://www.compaq.com/products/servers/linux/linux-drivers.html

This is a limited version. The Compaq Smart Array controllers are not supported at this time. Make sure you read the installation document at this web address.
ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/servers/linux/linuxhealth.pdf

A full Linux CIM agent will be available some time next year. Keep checking the Compaq Linux web site for an anouncement.

Re: Insight Manager Agent software

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh. That is interesting. It has been one of the main reasons I would never consider installing Linux on a Compaq Server. If only there was also an Integrated or Assisted Integration install for Linux. It seems that after how many years (?) the entire linux community has not made great strides in the install process. I hear it is better than it used to be, though. Keep up the good work.

Re: Insight Manager Agent software

It is now a very easy process to install Linux on most Compaq systems, since the latest distributions ship with the required drivers for most Compaq hardware configurations. If you have and older distribution, you can still download the required drivers and link them in to your Linux kernel. See this web page for installation instructions for installing the Linux OS onto Compaq systems.
