HP has developed the ProLiant Deployment Utility for Novell NetWare to provide enhanced PSP deployment capabilities. Using a console interface, the utility enables you to deploy and maintain PSP software on a local server.
The Deployment Utility for Novell NetWare is available with PSPs for Novell NetWare at the software and drivers website.
The utility has two modes of operation:
When the user interface mode of the Deployment Utility for Novell NetWare is launched, a main control window appears. The window provides details about the content of the PSP, including old and new version numbers and descriptions for each component in the PSP.
After deploying the PSP on the target server, the Deployment Utility for Novell NetWare displays comprehensive installation results, listing the components that were successfully installed, components that were not needed for the target system, and any installation failures.
Each component writes installation activity (including errors) to a common installation log file called CPQLOG.LOG, which is located in the SYS:\ETC\ subdirectory. Information regarding subsequent installation activity is appended to the same log file, providing a chronological history of all component installation activity on the target server. The following figure shows a sample installation log file.
