RHEL6.4 on ML370 G4

Hi,

 

I'm running Scientific Linux 6.4 x86_64 (a RHEL6 clone) on an ML370 G4. To get firmware, drivers, and management software for this machine I found a RHEL6 x86_64 SDR Respository at:

 

http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/repo/spp/2013.02.0_supspp_rhel6.4_x86_64/

 

I downloaded the add_repo.sh script and ran it:

 

sh ./add_repo.sh -d RHEL spp

 

I can list the availale software with:

 

yum list all --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=HP-spp

 

All looks good so far but will this software run on the ML370 G4? This page:

 

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=3279717&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3DswEnvOID%253D4004%257CswLang%253D%257Caction%253DlistDriver&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken

 

seems to suggest that updates for the ML370 G4 ended with RHEL5.

Hi,

 

ProLiant ML370 G4 supports only RHEL 5 below.

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/linux/hplinuxcert.html

From the above link check the Archive tab.

 

RHEL 6 may or may not work but HP does not certify.

 

Thank You!

Well, that's a lame situation but I can't say that I didn't know what I was getting into when buying HP hardware. Luckily, I only paid $200 for the machine.

That server model was retired in 2007. The latest firmware updates for the system are still available for download on the support page. RHEL 6 was realeased two years later.  Will any of the ProLiant utilites for RHEL 6 run on the system, probably. Were any of them ever tested on that server, no.
