HP Insight Manager on ESX

Hi Guys,

I am trying to install manager on an ESX Server via a script which esentially runs:

/root/hpmgmt/851/install851vibs.sh --silent --inputfile /root/hpmgmt/851/hpmgmt.conf

once I have configured the .conf file...

The problem is a get an error:

HP Insight Manager Agents Bulletins Agent ID error in offline bundle
[FAILED]
installer exit is called with status -[91]

does anyone know why this happens please?

Re: HP Insight Manager on ESX

Do you mean in the Service Console of ESX? Not only not supported, but shouldn't be done. You need a real VM running a real version of either Linux or Windows.

Re: HP Insight Manager on ESX

Re: HP Insight Manager on ESX

If a previous version of the agents has been installed it needs to be removed before installing a new version.

Also, what version of ESX are you installing onto?

Re: HP Insight Manager on ESX

I just ran into the same issue. This is a new server and it as the new patches from 2-10, could this be related?

I didn't have any issue installing the agent on our other not-yet-patched systems.

Re: HP Insight Manager on ESX

I think the file was corrupted. I re-downloaded because it was erased by mistake and I was able to install without errors.

Manual installation from an NFS share.

Re: HP Insight Manager on ESX

I would recommend using Configure or Repair Agent wizard for installing ESX agent. It is simple and effective but make sure-
you have root permitted for SSH and ESX version is 3.5 update 4 or above.

Do let me know if you need step-by-step details for that.
