Starting with version 220.127.116.11, ACU Scripting is now a standalone application that is distributed with the ACU CLI application. In ACU versions prior to 18.104.22.168, the scripting executable was provided with the ACU GUI component.
Users familiar with the previous versions of ACU Scripting must now install the ACU CLI application to obtain the scripting executable. The new ACU scripting executable (hpacuscripting) replaces the former executable (cpqacuxe) in all scripts.
The ACU Scripting application has two scripting modes:
ACU inspects the configuration of all internal and external array controllers connected to the server and then writes a script file describing this configuration.
ACU reads the array configuration described in a specified script file. See "Creating an ACU script file." ACU then applies this configuration to a target system.
