Re: How to get hpasm module on HP Proliant?
Emmanuel Halbwachs a écrit :
These hpasm and a collection of other tools are supplied by HP
only for supported distros (RH, SuSE, UL) in RPM format, tailored
for these distros.
The only tip I found about that is
As I understand, it is a script that does alien to have a .deb and
then does some adaptations.
Does anyone here running HP Proliant:
- tested the above script?
- succeeded in adaptating the HP RPM stuff to woody?
So I tested this script and it worked ok for me on a
ML350G3. More on this below.

I'm currently working on a website for that: www.debian-on-proliant.com
Currently there is only a basic framework and a hardware-matrix online,
but I hope to get some real content soon
Comments, suggestions and especially contributions are welcome!
I appreciate the effort! I think two links has to appear as they
were the key for me:

Make the site a Wiki, or at least add a wiki section. Lowers the barrier
to contribution a great deal.
I agree and I certainly am willing to contribute.
More détails on the installation.
This script installs:
(note that the latest version on HP/Compaq website is 7.1.1)
The hpasm (HP Advanced Server Management, I guess) packet gives:
- two kernel driver modules which control the server's supervision ASIC:
- these modules create some entries in /proc:
- some tools in /sbin:
(there is manpages for them)
The cmastor (Compaq MAnagement STORage, I guess) packet brings
radar:~# /etc/init.d/cmastor start
Starting Storage Agents (cmastor): All agents
Starting Storage peer (cmastorpeerd):
Starting Storage Event Logger (cmaeventd):
Starting IDA agent (cmaidad):
Starting FCA agent (cmafcad):
Starting IDE agent (cmaided):
Starting SCSI agent (cmascsid):
With cmastor, I have now log entries in hplog -v when I
unplug a hard drive.
The cpqacuxe (ComPaQ Array Configuration Utility XE ?? I guess)
packet provide the create/modify tool for RAID arrays. It is a
http(s) web server, same as the one on the "SmartStart" CD that
comes with the machine.
For the moment, I test with a backported 2.4.26 kernel from
In order to get the above script to work, I had to install
the according kernel-headers-2.4.26-1-686-smp.
