Capturing a reference configuration from the source server

  1. At the source server, boot the CD that contains the custom Linux Toolkit image.
  2. At the boot prompt, type bash, and then press Enter. When the process is complete, a command prompt appears.
  3. Load the network drivers using the loadnet script:


  4. Load appropriate storage controller drivers:

    modprobe -f cciss

  5. Load the channel interface driver for iLO:

    insmod /opt/hp/hp-ilo/bin/`uname -r`/hp_ilo.ko

  6. Mount the network share:

    mkdir /mnt/toolkit_share

    mount -t nfs -o rw,nolock <ip of workstation>:/path/to/toolkit /mnt/toolkit_share

  7. Capture a hardware discovery report using the HPDISCOVERY utility:

    cd /mnt/toolkit_share/utilities

    ./hpdiscovery -f /mnt/toolkit_share/data_files/hpdiscovery.xml

  8. Capture the system BIOS configuration using the CONREP utility:

    cd /mnt/toolkit_share/utilities

    ./conrep -s -f/mnt/toolkit_share/data_files/conrep.dat

  9. Capture the Smart Array configuration using the ACU utility:

    cd /mnt/toolkit_share/utilities/hpacuscripting

    ./hpacuscripting -c /mnt/toolkit_share/data_files/hpacuscripting.dat

  10. Capture the iLO configuration using the HPONCFG utility:

    cd /mnt/toolkit_share/utilities

    ./hponcfg -w /mnt/toolkit_share/data_files/hponcfg.dat

  11. Edit the iLO configuration report to create an iLO configuration script:

    vi /mnt/toolkit_share/data_files/hponcfg.dat

    Unmount the network share

    umount /mnt/toolkit_share

  12. Reboot the source server, and then eject the Toolkit CD.
