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.
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.
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.
The HPE Insight Management for Netcool/OMNIbus provides infrastructure management across a wide range of operating system platforms. This enables IT administrators to manage HPE ProLiant servers, storage and other enterprise resources within a common Netcool/OMNIbus environment.
The HPE Insight Management for Netcool/OMNIbus provides definitions for over 2578 individual events, defined in its rules file and to correlate nearly 785 SNMP events. These definitions and rules integrate closely with the Netcool/OMNIbus application using the Mttrapd probe, enabling HPE SNMP events and Fibre Channel Management SNMP events to be identified, processed, translated, and appear on the Event List.
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.
