Proliant Support Pack for Debian?

Hello folks,

i've got here an older ML370 Tower on which i've installed a Debian (c't) server. A co-worker informed me that there would be something called "ProLiant Support Pack" or so, which would enable to reduce fan rotation according to actual server load (fans are always running at full speed by now).
Ist there a possibility to download a Debian (.deb) package of this Support Pack? I've only found rpm packages for RedHat and SuSE.

Thanks in advance

Rainer

Rainer,

Here's the link for the downloads available for this server:

Unfortunately, I didn't see anything for Debian. The ProLiant Support Pack (PSP) contains the most recent drivers and Insight Management agents for a particular chassis/OS.

The problem you describe with fans is listed below, but there is no RBSU for the 1st generation ML370. If this is a G2 or later member of the ML370 family, you should be able to use the instructions below to lower the fan speed:

You should be able to take the hpasm package (the part of the PSP that does environmental monitoring and control) and use alien to get the RPM installed. That's one of the checks we do in the lab.

HPASM rpm2deb scripts from http://debian.catsanddogs.com/ work good on sarge.

Re: Proliant Support Pack for Debian?

I have some ML370 Full Tower first generation too. The HP open source offer is very poor. With Ian Murdock as business partner, how we cannot have a packager (maintainer, commiter, whatever) for hpasm, hpsmh, etc... on debian-based? For the moment with Sarge thats limited but good, but Etch, Ubuntu-server and many others of the open sources offer, what is the future for my old server machine? HP is the proof that a institutional method is going to strike a wall and will not obtain the full return on the open sources offer.

Thank you all!!!

That really helped alot. Installed the hpasm rpm's via alien and all worked just fine! Fans are running nice and _quiet_ now!
