Is there a way of manually removing all components of the HP managment agent (8.20) for ESX
I have two identicel hosts (HPDL380G5) I have installed the HP managment agent 8.20 on both the servers.
The first server installed perfectly and is operational. (ran the preinstall fix and then installed installvm820 --install)
The second server appeared to install correctly but upon the server reboot I had network issues on my VM's with machines not having access to there VLAN's for network resources. A subsequent reboot resolved the issues with the VM's. The managent agent was not installed properly. Couldn't log into the web site until I allowed anonymous access and once logged in their was no information on the system. I went to uninstall the agent ./installvm820sh --uninstall. The uninstall did not complete and as there a reminents I cannot reinstall.
I am currently going through the logs..
My plan is to uninstall the agent and then reinstall. and if that fails look at rebuilding the host (Foundation only so no vmotion...what a pain)
Hi, when you ran the install the first time did you run the preInstall_Setup.sh and reboot the host before running the install?
EDIT: forget that, just re-read your post. If you do an rpm -qa | grep -i hp do you get any packages listed?
Check the README.TXT of the package:
You need to change to the directory where the installvm820.sh script is
located. Then enter the following command:
This will remove all instances of the HP Advanced Management Software
except the snmp stack.
During the uninstall, a prompt appears when the following
(1) the system has an HP PCI IPMI device and
(2) the Pegasus service is in use
The prompt will request to stop Pegasus service.
" The installer must now shut down the Pegasus CIM server in
order to manipulate the IPMI driver. Pegasus CIM will be started
again once uninstall is complete. Remote management services
which depend on Pegasus CIM will be unavailable during the shutdown
This script will now attempt to shut down Pegasus CIM in order to
manipulate the HP Insight Manager Agents. Do you wish to continue (y/n)"
When the user's answer is yes, the Pegasus would be stopped and the
uninstall process would be continued. After uninstall of the agents, the
Pegasus service would be started again.
When the user's answer is no, the installation script will stop since the user
has indicated they do not wish to continue.
The firewall port for the `hpim' service, port 280, and port 2301 will be
disabled during uninstall of the agents.
A warning is displayed in regards to the snmpd service that has been enabled
in the firewall. The `snmpd' service can be disabled in the firewall
by using the command "esxcfg-firewall --disableservice snmpd".
