ProLiant DL360 G5 health check

Can anyone detail any management tools for hp proliant servers to identify potential probelms/misconfiguration/disasters waiting to happen at the hardware level?

 

Also are there any ways to determine if the server has a redundant power supply enabled?

Re: hp proliant health check

There are a lot ... first you have to tell if you have Gen8 servers or pre-Gen8, because it is different here. Usually you have management agents and system management homepage installed. So you have an overview. Additionally you can install Insight remote support or HP SIM or even the event notifier to get informed (and much more).

For the power supply - if the second (or more) is installed but not working, it is a hardware failure and the system will indicate this.

Hope this helps!

Re: hp proliant health check

Now it depends on the OS you are running.

At a first step I would install the current SPP:

Re: hp proliant health check

server 2003 - but basically what I am asking is, will this tool(s) churn out a management freindly audit report to show the current configuration, and/or any issues, including demonstrating the redundant power supply is turned on/working?

Can you provide a sample report this tool will do? Can the reports be exported? 

 

Will any such management tool identify if the HP is missing its latest service pack?

Re: hp proliant health check

Hi,

 

You can using the iLO2 to checking the server hardware if you know it password.

 

The DL360 G5 have a label at the top and on the front left side.. you can find the login name and password there.

 

Interface detail there

Re: hp proliant health check

Will this show if the redundant power supply is enabled.

 

can you also check if a hardware level password has been set from within this tool?

 

Where exactly are we looking to ensure the latest SP has been set?
