SUM cli - Gen10 - ilo5 - error CHIF driver

I'm using sum-8.3.1-7.rhel7.x86_64.rpm on a CentOS 7.

 

I'm running the following command in a shell script:

smartupdate --s --use_location "${spp}" --romonly --logdir "${log_path}"

This works as expected on DL380G9 (with ilo4). (with ilo Advance license and without license)

The same on DL360G10 8no ilo5 license) gives me an error:

sum_service_x64 started successfully on port 63001, ssl port 63002 and ftp port disabled.
Add Node failed for Node - localhost Reason: Installation of iLO Channel Interface Driver failed.
 Please refer scouting log file for more information.
Sending Shutdown request to engine
Waiting for engine to shutdown
Successfully shutdown the service.

Somehow there is a problem with the CHIF driver for iLO 5.
I was able to install the CHIF driver manually from:

/var/tmp/localsum/x64/chifdriver/ilo5/rhel7/kmod-hpilo-hpilo-1.5.0-337.9.rhel7u3.x86_64.rpm

But again there's an error:

sum_service_x64 started successfully on port 63001, ssl port 63002 and ftp port disabled.
Deploy skipped for localhost as one of the installables has failed dependency and Omit host is set.
Deploy failed on Node - localhost
Deploy error. Deploy skipped as one of the installables has failed dependency and OmitHost is set.
Sending Shutdown request to engine
Waiting for engine to shutdown
Successfully shutdown the service.

I'm using custom SPP with all firmwares for all DL Gen9 and Gen10 servers for RHEL 7 as package.

Does anyone know the reason for the error?
It's the latest SUM for RHEL 7 and I'm using firmware files from latest SPP.
How can I troubleshoot the problem?
Are there any new dependencies on ilo5? (I'm using standard license)

Re: SUM cli - Gen10 - ilo5 - error CHIF driver

An updated CHIF driver is required for iLO 5.  For DL380 Gen10 minimum OS support for RHEL 7 is 7.3 and CentOS is 7.4

I know custom SPP works with CentOS 7.5 as I was doing some testing last week using a DL380 Gen10.

Re: SUM cli - Gen10 - ilo5 - error CHIF driver

I'm using CentOS 7.3 but I updated the driver in the kernel with:

rmmod hpilo
insmod /HPE/scripting/spp18-06/hpilo_1.5.0_3.10.0-514/hpilo.ko

hponcfg is working on Gen10 systems to config ilo5.
(I needed to update that to get hponcfg to run).

Is it really still this issue with smartupdate?

Re: SUM cli - Gen10 - ilo5 - error CHIF driver

Please check the smartupdate detailed log to see if there is more information on what failed. CentOS 7.3 was never tested with any of the tools since it isn't supported. The log should be under /var/log/sum
