HP Insight CMU v7.3.2 is now available on "HP Software Updates and Licensing" site

A new  version of HP Insight CMU v7.3.2 is now available for download on the "HP Software Updates and Licensing" site -

This version contains many bug fixes and usability improvements.


**IMPORTANT** : Customers upgrading from HP Insight CMU v7.1 or earlier versions to v7.3.2 must obtain new license keys. Keys for v7.1 or earlier versions will not work with HP Insight CMU v7.2 and later versions. 

If you have  an active Insight CMU support contract, please go to to obtain the new license keys.


**IMPORTANT ** : If you install/upgrade to HP Insight CMU v7.3.2, DO NOT install the patches for older CMU versions (v7.3 or v7.2).  All the patches for older CMU versions (v7.3 or v7.2 etc..) are already included in the latest HP Insight CMU v7.3.2.


New Operating system & Hardware Support in HP Insight CMU v7.3.2:


  - RHEL7.1 is supported on the Management node and compute nodes.

  - SLES 12 is supported on compute nodes only. (btrfs filesystem backup/cloning is not supported)


HP Insight CMU v7.3.2  Highlights:


This release is focused on improving the usability of the product.


  • Users no longer need to explicitly blacklist the "ahci" driver in the PXE config files under the /opt/cmu/etc/bootopts/ directory for proper backup and cloning of HP Dynamic Smart Array RAID volumes. The corresponding drivers ("hpdsa" or "hpvsa") are automatically loaded before the "ahci" driver module in the HP Insight CMU network boot environment.


  • HP Insight CMU v7.3.2 officially supports OpenJDK.


  • Users receive more detailed information when errors are encountered during GUI launching.


  • HP Insight CMU v7.3.2 provides the ability to push data from the machine running the GUI to the /tmp file system of the management node. This functionality eliminates the requirement for Windows users on HP Moonshot systems to install any ftp, scp, or sftp clients on their Windows machine running the GUI, thus bridging the gap between Windows and Linux.


  • Additional checks added during HP Insight CMU installation, upgrades, at service startup, auto-install, backup and  cloning.


  • The new 'Hierarchical node search' mode is introduced for fast filter access.
