The goal of this paper is to help you understand what options you have for installing and updating these components on HP ProLiant servers and HP blade servers.

The Tech Brief focuses on environments running either SUSE Linux Enterprise Server or Red Hat Enterprise Linux. All other enabled, regional, and community Linux distributions require a Management Component Pack (MCP). An MCP is an OS-specific bundle containing software, utilities, and agents. The MCPs as well as the other enterprise, regional, and community Linux distributions are not the focus of this paper.
