1README for mondo/mindi usage with tools to backup Hardware configuration
2
3Some Hardware Manufacturers such as HP provide tools to store the Hardware configuration of their systems, such as the BIOS setup, the RAID setup, ...
4
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.
6
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.
8
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 http://www.hp.com/servers/sstoolkit
10
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:

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/ld.so.conf
28ldconfig
29perl -pi -e 's~^HOME=.*~HOME="/usr/local/bin"~' /usr/local/bin/cpqacuxe
30sed -i -e '/LD_LIBRARY_PATH/d' /usr/local/bin/cpqacuxe
31
32You also may have to remove the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL line in that script.
33
34You're now ready to check your configuration by running mindi-bkphw.
35
36In order to have a working hponcfg binary you also need to install the hprsm/hpasm packages from HP Web site. Refer to http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=drivers
