     3MondoRescue provides enhanced HP ProLiant support.
     4
     5HP ProLiant provides the possibility to be configured from a HW perspective at BIOS, Smart Arry (Raid) and iLO (management board) level from a Linux system.
     6
     7The information is stored in the EEPROM of each HW component (BIOS, SA and iLO), retrieved through the below mentioned HP tools, and stored on the disk with XML files. These files are available at restore time, to be used by the same tools, also available, to reconfigure the HW in a similar way to what it was at backup time.                                                                                                                                       
     8                                                                                                                                                           
     9Only if you add FirmWare components under /usr/local/bin (CPxxx.scexe files) then these files will also be launched at restore time to force a specific FW version to be installed. As long as FirmWare files are not stored under /usr/local/bin, they won't be applied.                                                                                                                                                   
     10At restore time, MondoRescue will ask a question (if not in unattended mode) in order to know if you want to restore the HW *configuration* (not HW FirmWare) content. It will then re-apply what was stored in the XML files to configure the platform exactly as it was at backup time, from a HW confiuration perspective.

    514If you have a ProLiant system you first need to get the hp-scripting-tools, hponcfg and hpacucli packages. Due to licenses issues, mindi cannot provide those tools itself. You need to get them from http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/downloads/ProLiantSupportPack/
