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:

25cp -a utilities/cpqacuxe/cpqacuxe /usr/local/bin
26cp -a utilities/cpqacuxe/bld /usr/local/bin
27mv /usr/local/bin/bld/*.so /usr/local/lib
28echo /usr/local/lib >> /etc/ld.so.conf
29ldconfig
30
31You're now ready to check your configuration by running:
32mindi-bkphw /var/cache/mindi /etc/mindi
33[First parameter is the directory where files will be generated,
34 Second parameter is the directory of the file proliant.files is located]
35
36For these tools to work you may have to install additional packages such as hpasm and hprsm from the HP Web site, as well as some libstdc++ compatibility packages (compat-libstdc++-33 and compat-libstdc++-296 on RHEL 5 e.g.)
37
38In 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
