Deploying MPIO Software

Is it possible to deploy HP MPIO software with rdp ?

Re: Deploying MPIO Software


Yes it is.

I have done this recently. You will need to create a new job and then use the silent install feature of MPIO that is stated in the Manual.

Once you create a new job, first task is to copy the install folder over to the Blade server.
Then you will need to run this script as a task: c:\\setup.exe /s /f1c:\\setup.iss

The .iss file is contains all the installation settings. You can modify if you wihs, but i left it at default.

Finally add a reboot as the last task and away you go!

Hope that helps.

How did you manage the return code ?
As MPIO asked for reboot the return code is not 0 and RDP will consider it as job failure


Re: Deploying MPIO Software

I'm not completely sure if you will get return code 3010 instead of 0. But just do this to get the job finished succesfully:

Run Script REM Install MPIO DSM EVA8000
"\\path\setup.exe" /s /f1"\\path\setup.iss" /f2%windir%\temp\MPInstall.log

In the Run Script job (unattended MPIO installation) click next to go to the return codes window. Click Add, select code 3010 with 'Continue' as response.

Note: If installing the MPIO DSM EVA8000 on a Windows2003 SP1 server with Blc7000/BL460c/Qlogic hardware make sure to modify a registry key related to the Qlogic service. Not doing so could result in the server no longer able to restart/shut down (without hanging).

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ql2300] "Start"=dword:00000001

Hi there,

You can manipulate the return code in RDP to report a certain return code as a success.

When you are creating your job, merely go to the screen (3rd screen) and click the Add.. button to add a return code.

Email me if you want more info.
