1README for mondo/mindi usage with tools to backup Hardware configuration
3Some Hardware Manufacturers such as HP provide tools to store the Hardware configuration of their systems, such as the BIOS setup, the RAID setup, ...
5Mindi has a script able to store the Hardware configuration and those parameters may be restored before launching mondorestore during the boot phase computed by mindi, in order to re-setup the machine as the original one.
7For the moment, only HP Proliant systems are supported. If you have tools to allow support for other type of machines, feel free to contribute patches to that script.
9If you have a Proliant system you first need to get the Smart Start Scripting Toolkit. Due to licenses issues, mindi cannot provide those tools itself. You need to get them from
11Mindi expects to find those tools under /usr/local/bin as described in the deplist.d/proliant.conf configuration file. Here are the steps to set it up correctly:
13Older URL:
16cd /tmp
18mkdir ssstk
19cd ssstk
20tar xvfz ../ss-scripting-toolkit-linux-1.81.tar.gz
21cp -a utilities/hponcfg /usr/local/bin
22cp -a utilities/conrep /usr/local/bin
23cp -a utilities/conrep.xml /usr/local/bin
24cp -a utilities/cpqacuxe/cpqacuxe /usr/local/bin
25cp -a utilities/cpqacuxe/bld /usr/local/bin
26mv /usr/local/bin/bld/*.so /usr/local/lib
27echo /usr/local/lib >> /etc/
30You're now ready to check your configuration by running mindi-bkphw.
32In order to have a working hponcfg binary you also need to install the hprsm/hpasm packages from HP Web site. Refer to
