  • HP/Compaq Insight Manager Install

    Hi,

    I have to install Insight Manager on a number of ESX hosts and it occurs to me that this must be a relatively common thing in these parts so I figured I'd try you first

    If anyone has installed IM on ESX, how did you do it and what other advice can you offer?

    Kyu

    Which version of ESX, if you're on ESX you can download it from HPs website and install it in the service console. If you're on ESXi you'll need a special bundled build of ESXi.

      Here's my script for an automated/scripted install of the HP Insight Agents on ESX hosts which may assist you:

      Code:
      #Install HP Insight Management Agents 8.1.1:
      #Paste the following into PuTTY:
      cd /tmp
      lwp-download http://webserver.domain.com/hpmgmt-8.1.1-vmware3x.tgz
      tar -xzvf hpmgmt-8.1.1-vmware3x.tgz
      cd hpmgmt/811/
      lwp-download http://webserver.domain.com/hpmgmt.conf
      ./installvm811.sh --silent --inputfile hpmgmt.conf
      #System Management Homepage installed successfully with
      #default configuration values.   To change the default
      #configuration values,  type the following command at
      #the root prompt:
      #perl /usr/local/hp/hpSMHSetup.pl
      
      #Remove HP Insight Management Agents 8.1.1 installation files:
      #Paste the following into PuTTY:
      cd /tmp
      rm -f hpmgmt-8.1.1-vmware3x.tgz
      rm -f -r hpmgmt

        By the way, you do not install Insight Manager on ESX, you install the Insight Management Agents. Insight Manager is the enterprise console which installs on Windows/IIS/etc.
