TheCentOS project seeks to maintain 100% binary compatibility with the upstream product. Additionalsoftware archives hold later versions of some packages and other free and open source softwareRPMs.Support is only provided by the CentOS community, but there is an HP  Linux Forum  where you can giveand receive help, tips, and opinions. Using CentOS with Insight Control for Linux HP Insight Control for Linux is a management solution for HP ProLiant servers. The Insight Control forLinux management solution works on the wide variety of ProLiant servers -- including blade, rack, tower,and scalable servers (that is, BL-, DL-, ML-, and SL- series, respectively).This white paper discusses how to set up HP Insight Control for Linux to install a CentOS 5.4distribution; it describes the steps needed to prepare Insight Control for Linux so that it can install,capture, and deploy the CentOS 5.4 operating system. It has been demonstrated that CentOS issimilar enough to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.4 operating system to be satisfactory. WhileHP believes this to be true, CentOS is not an officially supported operating system under Insight Controlfor Linux, and HP has not fully tested it. Furthermore, HP does not guarantee that all aspects of CentOSfunction correctly with Insight Control for Linux. IMPORTANT: Officially, CentOS is “community-supported” on HP Insight Control for Linux. HP doesprovide a ProLiant Support Pack (PSP) for CentOS on some servers; the procedure fordownloading the PSP is described in “Step 6: Download the RHEL5.4 PSP and add it toRepository” of this white paper.If you want options for full HP support of CentOS on Insight Control for Linux,please contact your local HP sales representative.You can also install Insight Control for Linux on a Central Management Server (CMS) installed withCentOS. This white paper does not discuss how to set up a CMS using CentOS. The HP Insight Control for Linux Installation Guide  contains the instructions for setting up the CMS . Follow theinstructions and RPM dependencies for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4. Note: HP does not support Insight Control for Linux on a CMS running the CentOS operating system.This white paper uses the example of a DVD distribution of CentOS 5.4 x86_64 in the following sixsteps. Step 1: Download the CentOS Distribution Software You can download the CentOS distribution from many web sites. The CentOS web site,http://centos.org, is the best place to look for a mirror site from which to download the CentOSdistribution.   3 From the CentOS Downloads site: ã   Select a mirror site. ã   Select an architecture type. ã   Choose DVD or CD as your media distribution. Note : All CentOS mirror sites contain an ISO file that is divided into 7 parts. Several of the mirrorsites also contain a 4.3 GB single DVD ISO.HP recommends that you download the single DVD ISO file.HP has found that the 7-part ISO file does not contain the full complement of RPMs needed toinstall either a managed system or a CMS.This white paper discusses copying the contents of the entire DVD distribution into an ICE-Linuxrepository directory. Step 2: Add the Distribution Software to the Repository  After downloading the DVD distribution image, use the following procedure to add it to therepository:1.   Open a web browser and log into the CMS.2.   For Insight Control for Linux Version 2.11, select  Options → Manage ICE-Linux Repository For Insight Control for Linux Versions 6.0 and higher, select Options → IC-Linux → Manage Repository 3.   Select New 4.   Select Supported OS in the Item type menu, even though CentOS is not a supported OS.5.   Click Next >. 6.   Select where the distribution will be hosted.For this white paper, the location is Locally (on the IC-Linux management server). 7.   Click Next >. 8.   Enter CentOS5.4_x86_64 in the Name field.9.   Enter CentOS 5.4 x86_64 in the Description field.10.   Select RHEL5 Server U4 x86_64 from the Operating System pull-down menu.11.   Click Save. Two new directories have now been created in the repository: ã    A directory in which to place the installation boot files and ã    A directory in which to place the contents of the DVD distribution.   4 Step 3: Mount the DVD Distribution Now you can add the contents of the CentOS distribution to the repository. If the DVD image is a file,you can mount it using the loop-back device: # mkdir /mnt/distro# mount -o loop / iso_path /CentOS-5.4-x86_64-bin-DVD.iso /mnt/distro If you burned the downloaded ISO onto a DVD, insert the DVD in the drive and copy the files fromthere. NOTE: The remaining steps assume that the contents of the DVD are available from the /mnt/distro directory. Step 4: Copy the Distribution to the Repository  After the distribution is available, copy its contents into the repository. # cp -a /mnt/distro/* /opt/repository/os/CentOS54_x86_64  After the operation is complete, you can remove the DVD from the drive, or unmount the ISO. Step 5: Copy Installation Boot Files to Repository Use the following commands to copy the CentOS installation kernel and its RAM disk into therepository. # cd /opt/repository/os/CentOS54_x86_64/isolinux# cp -a vmlinuz initrd.img /opt/repository/boot/CentOS54_x86_64Boot Step 6: Download the RHEL5.4 PSP and add it to Repository The following components must be installed so that a system can be managed by Insight Control forLinux and HP SIM: ã   hp-health ã   hp-OpenIPMI ã   hp-snmp-agents ã   hp-ilo In addition, netxtreme2 and nx_nic might be required to handle some newer network informationcards (NICs). As part of an Insight Control for Linux OS install operation, the Kickstart file for RHEL5.4/CentOS 5.4automatically installs these components from the RHEL 5.4 PSP. HP believes these components will workproperly in a CentOS 5.4 environment. Therefore, we recommend that the PSP for Red Hat RHEL 5.4be downloaded and placed in the repository and associated with the RHEL 5.4 supported operatingsystem.
