So I had this issue where I needed to modify RAID controller settings and add more drives on a DL380 G6 running VSphere 4.0 Update 1 while in production with no downtime.
Here’s how it’s done:
Using the vSphere client utility to copy the files to the server preferably in a new folder.
Now, SSH into the server and CD into the directory where the new files are and extract the .tgz file by run the following:
tar -zxvf hpmgmt-8.3.0-vmware4x.tgz
now run the shell script using the –install switch:
install the ACU by running:
rpm -i cpqacuxe-8.35-7.0.noarch.rpm
enable remote ACU control:
And that’s it.
Now you should be able to access the HPSIM homepage by browsing to
logging in with your vSphere root credentials, and now you should have a link to ACU at the homepage.
