HPE Management Component Pack (MCP)

What’s HPE Management Component Pack

HPE Management Component Pack or HPE MCP provides agent software for use on community-supported distributions. The MCP (unlike the SPP) does not provide drivers and firmware (firmware is provided via HPSUM, and drivers are provided by the distribution vendors). The Linux Service Pack for ProLiant provides updated drivers and agent software for use on RedHat Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

HPE Management Component Pack is including the below agents and tools for community distributions:

  1. hp-health: HPE System Health Application and Command line Utilities (Gen9 and earlier)
  2. hponcfg: HPE RILOE II/iLO online configuration utility
  3. amsd: HPE Agentless Management Service (Gen10 only)
  4. hp-ams: HPE Agentless Management Service (Gen9 and earlier)
  5. hp-snmp-agents: Insight Management SNMP Agents for HPE ProLiant Systems (Gen9 and earlier)
  6. hpsmh: HPE System Management Homepage (Gen9 and earlier)
  7. hp-smh-templates: HPE System Management Homepage Templates (Gen9 and earlier)
  8. ssacli: HPE Command Line Smart Storage Administration Utility
  9. ssaducli: HPE Command Line Smart Storage Administration Diagnostics
  10. ssa: HPE Array Smart Storage Administration Service

How to Install HPE Management Component Pack

The HPE Software Delivery Repository hosts yumzypper, and apt repositories for Linux-related software packages. Much of this content is also available from various locations at hpe.com in iso or tgz format, but if you would prefer to use your Linux-native software configuration manager, you may subscribe your systems to some or all of these repositories for quick and easy access to the latest rpm/deb packages from HPE.
