hponcfg/hp-health setup on debian fails

trying to configure my ilo remotely with hponcfg on a dl385 g1 with debian7.

followed the instructions here but hp-health cannot start.

and i do not see any hpasmd anywhere--

./hp-health/sh
./hp-health/sh/hpasmxld_reset.sh

i tried symlinking hpasmlited but that failed miserably.

i confirmed that this server does have compatilbe hardware:

Re: hponcfg/hp-health setup on debian fails

oh, i see.  Do you have any suggestions on how I might reset the console port from Debian7?

the port seems hung - i cant ping it and it's not taking any TCP connections.  the swithport sees the link "up" and i tried turning it down & up which made no difference.  I can't cold-boot the box because I'm afraid that the operating system is not going to boot correctly, hence why i'm looking to fix the console port.

Re: hponcfg/hp-health setup on debian fails

also, the HPE website shows how to use hponcfg on debian, maybe they added support to debian after that support article was written

Re: hponcfg/hp-health setup on debian fails

installing the older version 8.7.0 as described here makes hp-health work.  hponcfg still breaks, though:
