Hardware Management Pack Overview

The Sun Server Hardware Management Pack (HMP) from Oracle provides tools you can use to manage and configure Oracle servers from the host operating system. To use these tools, you must install the HMP software on your server. After installing the software, you will be able to perform the following server management tasks described in the following table.

Table 1 Hardware Management Pack -- Server Managment Tasks

Server Management Task From Host OS1
Hardware Management Pack Implementation
Monitor Oracle hardware with host IP address
Use the Hardware Management Agent and the associated Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) plug-ins at the operating-system level to enable in-band monitoring of your Oracle hardware. This in-band monitoring functionality enables you to use your host operating system IP address to monitor your Oracle servers without the need of connecting the Oracle ILOM management port to your network.
Host OS-level management tool
Monitor storage devices, including RAID arrays
Use the Server Storage Management Agent at the operating-system level to enable in-band monitoring of the storage devices configured on your Oracle servers. The Server Storage Management Agent provides an operating-system daemon that gathers information about your server’s storage devices, such as hard disk drives (HDDs) and RAID arrays, and sends this information to the Oracle ILOM service processor. The Storage Monitoring features in Oracle ILOM enable you to view and monitor the information provided by the Server Storage Management Agent. You can access the Storage Monitoring features in Oracle ILOM from the command-line interface (CLI).
Oracle ILOM 3.0 CLI Storage Monitoring features
Query, update, and validate firmware versions on supported SAS storage devices
Use the fwupdate CLI tool from the host operating system to query, update, and validate firmware versions on supported storage devices such as SAS host bus adapters (HBAs), embedded SAS storage controllers, LSI SAS storage expanders, and disk drives.
Host OS-level fwupdate CLI
Restore, set, and view Oracle ILOM configuration settings

Use the ilomconfig CLI tool from the host operating system to restore Oracle ILOM configuration settings,as well as to view and set Oracle ILOM properties associated with network management, clock configuration, and user management.
Host OS-level ilomconfig CLI
View or create RAID volumes on storage drives
Use the raidconfig CLI tool from the host operating system to view and create RAID volumes on storage drives that are attached to RAID controllers, including storage arrays.
Host OS-level raidconfig CLI
Use IPMItool to access and manage Oracle servers
Use the open source command-line IPMItool from the host operating system to access and manage your Oracle servers via the IPMI protocol.
Host OS-level command-line IMPItool

1Supported host operating systems include: Solaris, Linux, Windows, and VMware
