HP Tools for ESXi


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


First post so go easy on me :)


I have a N54L microserver and have install ESXi (Hypervisor) 5.5 on it. I know you can get differant plugins for to monitor SANs etc but is there anything to monitor the server hardware itself? I have a P212 and it would be nice to monitor/config the RAID from within the vSphere client.

Did you use the HP image to install ESXi? It contains all sorts of drivers. You can also install the HP ESXi Offline Bundle, I followed this guide when installing on my Gen 8 which allowed me to see my P410 in the client - http://www.cosonok.com/2012/02/installing-hp-offline-bundle-for-vmware.html


You can't really do much in the client other than see the status. You can SSH into your server and run the "hpssacli" command to manage your RAID card.
