hpacucli for x86_64

Hi there!

I'm on an HP DL380 G7, RedHat 6.0 and I added

http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/downloads/ProLiantSupportPack/RedHat/6.0/x86_64/current/

as a new repository into /etc/yum.repos.d/

Trying to 'yum install hpacucli' fails due to missing i386 glibc etc. dependencies.

Indeed hpacucli's entry in

http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/downloads/ProLiantSupportPack/RedHat/6.0/x86_64/current/repodata/primary.xml.gz

shows i386 only.

I'm wondering is there a hpacucli binary available for x86_64 only systems?

Re: hpacucli for x86_64

Glad to see you are using the SDR, and yes what you describe is accurate regarding what this hpacucli package requires. There are actually two issues in play here. First is that the hpacucli is not available (yet) in a full 64 bit package, but relies instead upon that platform's 32 bit compatibility libraries. Second, for EL6, you'll find that yum, by default, will only install the packages for the architecture of your platform (in your case x86_64), whereas in earlier versions of RHEL, you'd automatically get both 32 and 64 bit versions of the package.

So, at this time, ensure that you have access to EL6 repositories (from media or RHN) containing both 32 and 64 bit packages, and in general, you'd have to:

yum install .i386

For this specific situation, you'll likely want to execute this command:

yum install libstdc++-4.4.4-13.el6.i686

to satisfy the necessary dependency.

Re: hpacucli for x86_64

Thanks Bryan for your prompt response.

I don't think we want to add 32bit infrastructure just for this one tool.

Is there any concrete plan when hpacucli will be properly ported to 64bit?

Re: hpacucli for x86_64

I can only share that the plan is to provide a native 64bit Linux version of this tool, but can't share/commit to a date/timeframe.

Re: hpacucli for x86_64

Hi Tobias, 

 

any progress on getting a 64bit version of hpacucli for centos 6 ?

 

I'm trying to install it (32 bit),  but I'm getting, 

 

/opt/compaq/hpacucli/bld/.hpacucli: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

when trying to run it,   I'm searching the web installing all sorts of bits and pieces, to no avail, 

 

maybe I should move to 32 bit version of centos ?   seems like a bit of a step backwards though, 

 

thanks for any help/advice/info,  (or even sympathy !)

 

Gerald

Re: hpacucli for x86_64

Does centos 7 version of hpacucli exist?

I tried all of these rpms, but none works.

hpacucli-8.75-12.0.noarch.rpm
hpacucli-9.0-24.0.noarch.rpm
hpacucli-9.10-22.0.x86_64.rpm
hpacucli-9.40-12.0.x86_64.rpm

In all cases I'm getting message "Error: No controllers detected."

According to lspci output, the server has supported by hpacucli controller:

# lspci -v | grep RAID -A 1
02:00.0 RAID bus controller: Hewlett-Packard Company Smart Array Gen8 Controllers (rev 01)
