Component configuration for Windows components only

To configure components without using the HP Smart Update Manager GUI, issue the command, hpsum_config <component_to_configure>. This command presents the same configuration screens seen in the HP Smart Update Manager GUI. You must run this command from read-write media. Running from a CD or other read-only media prevents the component from being configured. Configuration for a given component needs to be executed only once. The configuration is stored within the component and is propagated to all target servers when deployed through HP Smart Update Manager GUI or command line. To change the configuration, rerun hpsum_config against the component and a new configuration writes out. If a component does not need configuration, the hpsum_config command returns to the console.

To configure components to be deployed on all editions of the Windows Server® 2008 with the Server Core option, you must access the system as a remote host using HP Smart Update Manager running on a system with a supported Windows® operating system, and then configure the components before deployment.

NOTE: The PSP .CMD file is a script that attempts installation of all components in the PSP regardless of whether a component is needed or not. It is not recommended that you use the .CMD file because it has no intelligence other than checking the return codes and ensuring the components are installed in the right order. When using this method to install components, both the SNMP agent and WBEM provider are installed on the server and the WBEM provider takes precedence.
