The HPE System Management Homepage (SMH) consolidates and simplifies the management of ProLiant and Integrity servers running Microsoft Windows or Linux, or HPE 9000 and HPE Integrity servers running HP-UX 11i. By aggregating data from HPE Insight Management Agents and other tools, SMH provides a secure and intuitive interface to review in-depth hardware configuration and status data, performance metrics, system thresholds and software version control information. SMH can also be used to access the HPE Lights-Out Management processor on ProLiant and Integrity servers. SMH is part of the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) or the Integrity Support Pack (ISP), and can be extended to meet specific system management requirements by integrating additional plug-in tools. SMH is easy to install and can be extended to meet specific system management requirements by integrating additional HPE plug-in management tools that include HPE Online Diagnostics and HPE Software Version Control Agents.
Are you struggling to manage your Edge devices in a way that you are accustomed to in a data center environment? The HPE Edgeline Infrastructure Manager Software (EIM) makes it simple to deploy and manage HPE Edgeline systems in any location. It allows administrators to aggregate the management of their Edgeline systems under a single application over wired and wireless interface (WiFi, LTE and such). The HPE Edgeline Infrastructure Manager easily conveys both routine and critical metrics in an easy-to-read graphical interface. It supports discovery, provisioning, and updating at scale to manage firmware, option settings, and networking parameters. Designed with standards-based API, HPE Edgeline Infrastructure Manager Software is an industry-leading Edgeline tool that is ideal for administrators who need to closely manage their servers and Edge systems both inside and outside the data center environment.
The Scripting Toolkit (STK) for Windows and Linux provide flexible scripting to automate steps in HPE ProLiant server configurations to scale high volumes of server deployments rapidly and cut deployment time substantially. The STK includes a modular set of utilities and documentation that describe how to apply the scripting tools for an automated deployment process.
It delivers hands-off, unattended installation for high volume HPE ProLiant server deployments and is integrated with other management tools such as Integrated Lights Out (iLO), BIOS and is based on Intelligent Provisioning. Its "Rack and Go" approach frees up scarce IT resources, delivers consistent server configurations across multiple servers, and integrates into popular methods for operating system deployment. Past versions were based on SmartStart, and were known as the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit.
Are you a HPE OneView or HPE iLO Amplifier Pack customer who needs to update your server?
The Smart Update Tools (SUT) are a SUM extension that enables HPE OneView and HPE iLO Amplifier Pack to stage, schedule and apply updates automatically to reduce IT operations.
SUT is an operating system (OS) utility that provides the ability to perform online firmware and/or driver updates via the HPE iLO management network without the need for OS credentials.
SUT supports Windows®, Linux® (Red Hat® and SUSE®), and VMware ESXi™.
Tired of configuring each Virtual Connect module over and over?
HPE Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager centralizes connection management and workload mobility for HPE Blade Servers that use Virtual Connect to access LANs, SANs and converged network infrastructures. It increases productivity and reduces operating costs by allowing data centers to respond faster to workload and configuration changes.
Built on the Virtual Connect architecture, it provides a central console to administer network address assignments, perform group-based configuration management, and rapidly deploy and move server connections for 250 Virtual Connect domains (up to 1,000 BladeSystem enclosures and 16,000 blade servers).
Virtual Connect and Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager create a change-ready infrastructure allowing system administrators to add, replace and recover servers across the data center in minutes without impacting network configurations or availability.
Do you need help increasing your system uptime and health? One of the easiest, simplest, least expensive solutions is HPE Systems Insight Manager (HPE SIM). It allows you to manage your hardware across a wide variety of Hewlett Packard Enterprise servers, including the HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers and HPE ProLiant Gen9 Servers, as well as storage and networking products. With HPE SIM you can manage your contracts and warranties and automate remote support via HPE Insight Remote Support. HPE SIM allows you to monitor the health of your HPE ProLiant Servers and HPE Integrity Servers, and also provides you with basic support for non-Hewlett Packard Enterprise servers with software discovery. When you integrate HPE SIM with HPE Insight Control and HPE Matrix Operating Environment, you can proactively manage your physical and virtual server health, deploy servers quickly, decrease power consumption, and improve your infrastructure with capacity planning.
Wondering how to get your HPE ProLiant Server up and running with improved security using industry standard interfaces?
Each HPE ProLiant Gen9 and Gen10 Server supports Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). This industry standard is a set of interfaces between the system firmware, the operating system, and various components of the system firmware that deliver enhanced security benefits for the HPE Servers.
The HPE ProLiant system BIOS is a UEFI solution based on the latest UEFI Specification revisions. In addition, most HPE ProLiant Gen9 and Gen10 Server are UEFI Class 2 solution, supporting both Legacy BIOS boot and UEFI boot modes, providing users the flexibility to switch between modes. UEFI supports iLO RESTful API and is Redfish API conformant.
Are you spending too much time and money on server updates?
Smart Update Manager (SUM) and the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) combine to create the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Smart Update Technology to solve the problem of time-consuming, expensive, and error-prone updates.
SUM is an innovative tool for keeping the firmware, drivers, and system software of HPE ProLiant, HPE Synergy, HPE BladeSystem and HPE Moonshot infrastructures and associated options up to date and secure.
SUM discovers the installed hardware and the current versions of firmware, drivers, and system software, provides an update recommendation, and
applies the updates in an efficient order to reduce impact on operations.
SUM provides a variety of interfaces for applying updates, so you can pick the interface that meets your needs. Update the servers while they are offline or online, locally or remotely via web browser, or interactively or automatically.
Having problems finding a single scripting tool that provides management automation among the server components? Being challenged with many tools, remote management vulnerabilities and scripting limitation? Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers you a single scripting tool called RESTful Interface Tool designed for HPE ProLiant Gen9 & Gen10 Servers with flexible and simpler scripting server automation at scale for rapid deployments to help cut time substantially. The RESTful Interface Tool lets you configure, monitor and update various server components. The tool is agnostic to the iLO RESTful API that is Redfish API conformant with no FW or schema download dependencies, allowing management of iLO, BIOS, Smart Array and firmware updates
Are you spending too much time and money on server updates? The Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and Smart Update Manager (SUM) combine to create the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Smart Update Technology to solve the problem of time-consuming, expensive, and error-prone updates. The SPP is an comprehensive collection of firmware, drivers, and system software tested together as a single solution stack used for updating your HPE ProLiant servers, HPE Synergy, and HPE BladeSystem infrastructures.
