Installing HP tools on G8 running Hyper-V


Installing HP tools on G8 running Hyper-V



We have a ProLiant DL380p Gen8 that run Hyper-V Core version 2012R2 (without the Windows part)

I was wondering if it is possible to install all the HP agents, drivers and tools on it since it does not really run Windows itself. And also have it managed by HP SIM

If it is possible what would be the best way of doing it ?


Thank you for your help

For Gen8 and Gen9 servers it is usually enough to register ILO to your SIM in order to monitor them, regardless what OS is running.

Hope this helps!

Yes I am able to detect the server using ilo

but what about the software verification and pushing updates ?


Is it possible to check the software version on an Hyper-V server ?

I think I need the VCA agent running on the server to do that, how can I run the VCA agent on a server if it does not run Windows ?

For software verification you would need the AMS agent, i'm not sure if that works on core but you could give it a try. This is only for verification. I would use Hpsum remote to update the server.
Kind regards,
