Re: Proliant Gen10 Has No Insight Diagnostics?

Dear all,

Any suggestions to test servers in offline mode ?

Re: Proliant Gen10 Has No Insight Diagnostics?

We also are wondering about this, we have been using the Proliant range for our appliances since the G5, the first thing we always did was run the Insight Diagnostics tests before doing anything else with the server

This checked we hadn't got a Dead on Arrival and also the results of the tests let us confirm the spec was correct i.e. expected amount of RAM type of Raid Array controller etc.

This was too avoid wasting time starting a build using a server that might have dodgy memory or that was the wrong spec

If HPE have removed the ability to run offline self diagnostics tests this is not a step forward

Just found this HPE doc that references HVT (Hardware Validation Tool)  on the Gen10, haven't had a chance yet to see what it does

Reading that document, it says you have to use version 3.20 of Insight Diagnostics, but I can't find it anywhere, and our server thinks that 3.10 is the must current version.

So maybe we have to sit tight and wait for HPE to produce this version 3.20!

If anyone else is waiting for Insight Diagnostics 3.20, I have now been informed by HPE Support that it is to be expected by July 2018.

>> Insight Diagnostics 3.20

 

They told diagnostics will be part of Intelligent Provisioning version 3.20.


Hope this helps!

HPE Support rang me and emailed me this morning to advise that Intelligent Provisioning 3.20 for the Gen10 range was released yesterday!

Yes, you are right. I said "Insight Diagnostics 3.20" but I meant "Intelligent Provisioning 3.20".
