Windows 2003 server / insight agents ( 6400R /1840R )?

I have been able to install Windows 2003 server on 3 Prolinat 6400R and 2 1850R servers just fine.. My scenario..

Boot the server with the Windows 2003 CD in the drive...build/configure..do the snmp add after the build..

At that point with a running Windows 2003 OS on each box.. I insert the the Smart Start 6.40 CD and start the Support pack install. On all the servers it fails to install the Insight agents ? Any hints ?

This is the telltale line

"Setup Session Beginning 9/11/2003 - 12:15:13 PM
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Command Line Parameters Given: /silent
Name: hp Management Agents for Windows 2000/Server 2003
New Version: 6.40.0.0

Beginning Silent Session...

The software is not supported for installation on this system.

The installation program couldn't find the appropriate system management
controller driver which is required but is not currently installed. Please
install the appropriate system management controller driver and then rerun
the setup program.

Installation will not continue.

The operation was not successful.



Try re-installing from this link

If it is sucessful then re-insatll the SupportPaq because when the System management
controller driver fails it fails a few other packages as well.

Hope this helps

Greetings

To all who couldn't install windows 2003 on a proliant server 6400R, or any other, do yourself a favor and take out all installed cards except for the RAID controller, I spent a week trying to install Windows 2003 on my proliant 6400R but to no avail, the moment I snatched out the Firewire card that was install to support an external drive, the installation went without a hitch.

I learned, I hope this helps you.
