SPP/MCP/SRD Support for Citrix XenServer 6.x?

After reading the blog post "HP and Citrix – partners that deliver solutions across the technology spectrum" and the page "Community Linux Distributions" in the HP ProLiant Servers section, I'm left wondering if HP provides...

 

...for Citrix XenServer on Proliant Servers?

Re: SPP/MCP/SRD Support for Citrix XenServer 6.x?

The Citrix KnowledgeBase Article CTX116367, "How To Use HP System Management Software on a XenServer Host", addresses this topic for Citrix XenServer 3.2 and 4.0:

 

The XenServer Host runs Xen on a bare-bones CentOS Linux operating system, which is very similar to RedHat Enterprise Linux 4. It should therefore be feasible to install HP System Management on a XenServer Host and manage it as with any other Linux server.

 

The KB article provides step-by-step directions on installing SMH, ACU, and IDU.

 

I'm wondering if anyone has tried these procedures for XenServer 6.x?

Thanks for your note.

 

 

The short answer is unfortunately no. This isn't by choice either....
