6 Overview Introduction The SMS Inventory Tool for HP ProLiant and Integrity Update is a new inventory tool that: Facilitates the use of existing software management features for HP ProLiant and Integrity servers through Microsoft SMS 2003 SP1, SP2, and SP3. Expands the existing ProLiant integration with SMS 2.0 and SMS Adds SMS support for HP Integrity servers that HP ProLiant SMS site servers manage as clients. Enables you to use SMS 2003 SP1, SP2, and SP3 to manage and distribute HP system software, firmware (ROM and BIOS updates), and ProLiant or Integrity Support Packs to a group of servers. When you use SMS 2003 to manage system hardware inventory and software update deployments, you can do so more effectively with ProLiant and Integrity servers. This functionality complements HP Systems Insight Manager and the HP OpenView suite of system management tools. You can download the kit containing the tool and associated documentation from the HP website at no cost. With the inventory tool, you can: Inventory HP ProLiant and Integrity servers within the scope of the management collection. You can limit and adjust management collections to suit your needs. For example, you can create a collection of servers related to a specific application to ensure that servers for that application are managed consistently. Sort server inventory by server model or Microsoft Windows version. This feature simplifies the definition of update requirements and facilitates large-scale software deployments using SMS. Scan HP servers within a management collection to determine the current configuration of software, firmware, and support packs. Predefined SMS reports provided with the inventory tool simplify your review of installed components. Authorize and deploy software updates to servers. Deployment of full ProLiant and Integrity Support Packs is comprehensive and complete. Support packs are pretested together to ensure smooth integration. You can deploy user-defined groups of components with the inventory tool, but HP does not support (and cannot guarantee) such deployments. You must perform adequate testing to ensure that your combination of individual components integrates with your environment. Manage distributions of specific components from within ProLiant and Integrity Support Packs. The inventory tool simplifies the installation of a single software module (a driver update, for example) to a group of servers. Monitor component installation and results. Log files are available to allow post-deployment audits of updates. Inventory certain hardware-specific information through the HP Insight Inventory Collector. You can install the inventory tool from the HP website or from the CD. Overview 6

Installation 19

20 Using the software Identifying HP servers to manage Multiple collections are created during installation to enable you to identify HP servers within the SMS environment. These collections can be modified to fit individual needs. The HP Updates collection (on page 16) is the default collection targeted for advertising the scan tool. This collection must be properly updated so that the scan tool is advertised to the correct target system. Modifying the list of scanned systems If the installation has proceeded normally, the query statement that performs collections accurately represents the servers in the collection. However, the statement might need to be modified if new HP servers are released and should be added to the collection. To modify the list of scanned systems on which the scan tool runs: 1. In the SMS Administrator console, select Systems Management Server>Site Database>Collections. Using the software 20

21 2. Right-click HP Updates collection, and select Properties. The HP Updates Collection Properties dialog box appears. 3. In the Membership Rules tab, right-click Collection Query, and select Properties. Using the software 21

22 4. Select Limit to collection, and then click Browse. IMPORTANT: This collection can also be configured by using the Collection Query membership rule. The membership rule is a query statement that can be modified to add or remove computers from the collection. To run the scan tool on the systems specified by this query statement, set the collection limiting option to Not collection limited. 5. Select the collection to scan, and click OK. NOTE: Listing HP Integrity servers by operating system will not differentiate between Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Datacenter Edition. Using the software 22

Running the hpcplverify.exe utility on Itanium servers Users of the initial release of Windows Server 2003 for 64-bit Itanium-based Systems must first run the hpcplverify.exe utility to access SMS clients from the Control Panel. The Control Panel of early versions of Windows Server 2003 does not contain the View x86 icons folder. To add access to the SMS clients from the Control Panel: NOTE: This utility is for 64-bit machines only. Executing this utility on a 32-bit machine triggers the error message, "The image file C:\hpCplVerify.exe is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine." 1. Locate the file hpcplverify.exe in the directory C:\Program Files\SMS Inventory Tool for HP Update\Tools of the SMS server. 2. Copy the file to the hard drive of the SMS client. 3. On the SMS client, go to the command prompt, change to the location where the file was copied, and execute the file. 4. On the SMS client, access the Control Panel, and confirm that the View x86 icons folder displays. Double-click View X86 icons to view the System Management icon. 5. Double-click System Management to confirm the icons display. Scanning managed servers The HP Updates advertisement (on page 16) triggers the scan tool to run at the recurring schedule on all servers in the HP Updates collection (on page 16). The scan tool scans all servers in the collection and Using the software 23

24 obtains information about the installed and missing HP software and firmware updates for each system. This information can then be viewed on the software update reports (on page 26). To modify the HP updates collection, see "Identifying HP servers to manage (on page 20)" for more information. NOTE: Running the scan tool on an unsupported server will generate an error code. See "Troubleshooting (on page 74)" for more information. Obtaining the latest HP manifest catalog During installation, the setup wizard can obtain the latest HP manifest catalog from either the HP website or a network shared folder: For SMS site servers with access to the Internet, see "SMS site server with an FTP connection (on page 24)" for instructions on downloading the HP manifest catalog from the HP website. For SMS site servers without access to the Internet, see "SMS site server without an FTP connection (on page 24)" for instructions on downloading the HP manifest catalog from a network shared folder. The sync tool can also be used to download the latest HP manifest catalog after the inventory tool is installed. See "Obtaining the HP manifest catalog with the sync tool (on page 25)" for more information. IMPORTANT: If the inventory tool is configured to use a network share during installation, components updated with DSUW will also be obtained from network share. Components will be obtained from the HP FTP site if the tool is configured to use FTP during setup. See "Switching between internet and network share to obtain HP catalog and components ("Switching between the Internet and network share to obtain HP catalog and components" on page 36)" for more information. SMS site server with an FTP connection If the SMS site server has an FTP connection, HP recommends using the setup wizard to download the latest HP manifest catalog from the HP website. The SMS environment might use a proxy that requires authentication to access the Internet. Be sure to run the setup wizard using an account that has the following characteristics: Access to the Internet SMS administrative permissions (SMS admins group) Local administrative permissions (Local administrators group) Also, be sure to verify that your network access, including firewalls or proxy servers are setup to allow active FTP access. See "Access rights (on page 39)" for more information on setting up Internet connections. SMS site server without an FTP connection If the SMS site server does not have an FTP connection, the HP manifest catalog and all component files must be provided on a local network share. Using the software 24

25 In this case, the setup wizard downloads the HP manifest catalog from the network shared folder. Before running the setup wizard, be sure the selected network shared folder contains the latest HP manifest catalog and individual components. After the sync tool is configured to obtain the HP manifest catalog and individual components from the network shared folder, you must verify that the share is regularly updated with the latest manifest catalog to ensure information in the SMS site server is current. To download the HP manifest catalog and individual components to a network shared folder: 1. Create the folder C:\HPBinaries on a local system or network (C:\HPBinaries is an example; there are no restrictions on the folder name). 2. Create the folder C:\HPBinaries\Catalog. This folder stores the HP manifest catalog. 3. Create the folder C:\HPBinaries\Components. 4. Create the folder C:\HPBinaries\Components\ProLiant. This folder stores manually downloaded components for ProLiant updates. Proceed to step 6 if you are not managing Integrity servers within your SMS environment. 5. Create the folder C:\HPBinaries\Components\Integrity. This folder stores manually downloaded components for Integrity updates. 6. Download the HP manifest catalog (catalog.cab) from the HP website (ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software2/col3293/) to the Catalog folder created in step Download the latest support pack and components for your HP ProLiant server or Integrity server from the appropriate HP website to the corresponding Components folder created in step 4 and step 5. Download ProLiant components and support packs from the HP website ( and download Integrity components and support packs from the HP website ( 8. Share the folders created in steps 1 through 5, and give Read permissions to all users. NOTE: The network share folder specified must have the two subfolders, "Catalog" and "Components." Download the HP manifest catalog to the Catalog folder and the HP ProLiant or Integrity Support Pack to the appropriate Components subfolder. Obtaining the HP manifest catalog with the sync tool There are two methods to obtain the HP manifest catalog with the sync tool: Sync with the Internet HP recommends that the sync tool be used to automatically download the HP manifest catalog from the HP website. Using this method, new catalog updates can be automatically implemented with no user intervention. Be sure that the sync host has an FTP connection so that the sync tool can automatically download the latest HP manifest catalog. If the SMS environment uses a proxy that requires authentication, see "SMS site server with an FTP connection (on page 24)" for more information. Sync with a network shared folder If the sync host does not have an FTP connection, HP recommends configuring the sync tool to obtain the HP manifest catalog from a local folder or a network shared folder. The SMS administrator must manually download the HP manifest catalog and HP ProLiant or Integrity Support Pack components from the HP website and place the files in the appropriate locations.

For more information about using the standard SMS reports, see the Microsoft website ( Authorizing and deploying software updates The DSUW can be used to update the managed servers within the SMS environment. The DSUW authorizes applicable software, firmware, and support pack updates for HP ProLiant and Integrity servers. For more information about authorizing applicable updates, see the Microsoft website ( All applicable updates (including individual software updates) are installed in one process, and all components included in the update are tested together and supported by HP. However, individual software updates might need to be applied to address issues with specific components or when the updates are not included in the relevant HP ProLiant or Integrity Support Pack updates. In this scenario, you must first test the system with each individual installation package before advertising the update to the SMS environment to verify the proper sequence of component installation occurs. HP recommends deploying system updates using HP ProLiant or Integrity Support Pack updates and using HP ProLiant or Integrity Support Pack updates for deploying multiple software updates to guarantee the order of update execution. Updates can be grouped together and delivered in one package if the updates are the same type. For example, HP ProLiant firmware updates are not part of HP ProLiant Support Pack updates and must be deployed in a separate process. To troubleshoot any problems while authorizing and deploying software updates, see "Updates that require reboots (on page 48)." NOTE: Updates can only be grouped together and delivered as one package if the updates are the same type. For example, HP ProLiant software updates cannot be grouped with HP ProLiant firmware updates. To use DSUW to authorize HP Updates: Using the software 27

28 1. In the left pane of the SMS Administrator console, select Systems Management Server>Site Database. 2. Right-click Software Updates, and select All Tasks>Distribute Software Updates. 3.

Re-advertise the HP Updates Sync program or manually run the sync tool to update the SMS database. Using the scan tool The scan tool is a software inventory tool deployed by SMS and targets servers within the SMS environment. The scan tool performs automated, periodic scans of SMS clients for installed and missing software, firmware, and ProLiant and Integrity Support Pack updates. The scan tool uses information available from the HP catalog to determine the state of the system. It reports to the SMS server that a software update is compliant if the installed version is compliant up to the current version of component. The scan tool reports "Requested" depending on the scan tool mode selected. NOTE: Running the scan tool on an unsupported server will generate an error code. See "Troubleshooting (on page 74)" for more information. Advanced topics 36

37 Scan tool command line syntax The scan tool has command line parameters that configure how the scan tool audits the servers, creating an inventory of missing and available HP components. The scan tool command line is: hpscan.exe /proliant:proliantcatalog /integrity:integritycatalog /scan:scanlist /mode:mode /scantype:scantype /result:result Command line parameter Description ProLiantCatalog (required) This entry specifies the name and location of the HP ProLiant catalog data file for the scan process. Depending on the server platform, either ProLiantCatalog or IntegrityCatalog is required for the scan tool to run properly. IntegrityCatalog (required) ScanList (required) Mode (optional) This entry specifies the name and location of the HP Integrity catalog data file for the scan process. Depending on the server platform, either ProLiantCatalog or IntegrityCatalog is required for the scan tool to run properly. This entry specifies the name and location of the Component List XML file for the scan process. This XML file contains two lists of components, the scan list and the exclude list. Components and support packs listed in the scan list are scanned by the scan tool, and components and support packs listed in the exclude list are excluded from the scan process. The scan list file should only be modified by HP. This optional entry defines the output mode of the scan tool. The scan tool runs in "Latest" mode if no entry is specified. The following entries are valid: Latest Only reports the status for the latest version of the component Applicable Reports the status for all versions of the applicable component All Report "Requested" for all components Advanced topics 37
