HP Management Component Pack for Ubuntu

We got a couple of HP ProLiant DL380 G7 servers, and this is what HP has to offer for being certified for Ubuntu: Management Component Pack (on its Software Delivery Repository).

And here’s how to set it up on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Add the repo:

add-apt-repository 'deb http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/repo/mcp/ubuntu precise/current non-free'

And the repo keys:

wget -qO - http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/repo/mcp/GPG-KEY-mcp | sudo apt-key add -

Finally, get the list of packages from the repo and install whichever packages required (hpacucli to configure the disk array controller):

apt-get update
apt-get install hpacucli
