Proper way to gather proliant and hp blade hardware configuration from the command line

I am looking for a method to gather the output of a proliant and HP blade hardware configurations from a command line and store them in a file.

Is HP Insight manager the proper way to do this using the hpdiags utility?

Or does hpsum provide this capability?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

HP SIM is a web based tool that is able to gather the data you listed in your question. It has the capability to generate many types of reports (inventory, cpu, memory, hard drives reports..)

These reports can be run from the command line using the mxreport command, the output can be in html, cvs

see more details on the command here : http://h18013.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/hpsim/info-library51/mxreport.1m.html

Now if you are keen on scripting, you can also use the smartstart scripting toolkit and make use of some cli based utilities to retrieve data from nodes separately...

the HPDISCOVERY command is probably the tool you are looking for.

Hope it helps
