HP EVA:RSM CLUI and SSSU support for ESX


We have HP EVA 4100 and 4400 arrays and want to present luns to ESX server(preferably ESX 3.5). The replication will be setup between these arrays(2 4100 or 2 4400 or mixed). We want to manage DR failover from ESX console OS. Hence need RSM CLUI and SSSU installed on the console OS. Which versions of RSM and Command view softwares support installing these host components on ESX 3.5?

Also where can I get information as to which drivers need to be installed on ESX boxes?

Appreciate urgent reply.

Hi, EVA compatibility matrix here:


I only see RSM host agent 4.0.x with ESX Server 3.5 and Windows 2003 as guest OS, and with limitations.

RSM Server is a Windows program, cannot run in VmWare ESX.
SSSU cannot run on a ESX server, but you can install it on a Windows or Linux VM.

Drivers needed for VmWare here:

Re: HP EVA:RSM CLUI and SSSU support for ESX

Thank you for the information. In the compatibility matrix guide: table 4.2 I can see HP SSSU 8.0 is supported for ESX 3.5. Or I'm missing something.

I've trial softwares(RSM 4.0 and Command view 8.0 servers and host components) downloaded but couldn't see RSM CLUI or SSSU packages for ESX for in the iso s. The download URL is http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductsList.do?category=SWSDED

A related question, what is recommended to use (RSM CLUI or SSSU) for faster failovers in case of replication.
