This is only a crappy note… and not a real HOWTO
Compaq/HP Proliant server has a kind of integrated managed with a bunch of proprietary interfaces. There are HP/Compaq specific tools for GNU/Linux to do the management (IML) but required specific kernel version or specific version of the GNU/Linux distribution. So installing it on non-supported version is a real pain. So other main issue is that source code is not available (the software seems proprietary as I can't find any complete licensing information) for these tools and used various non-standard libraries. I won't talk about the SNMP integration or the various self-hosted http server ;-)
But you still need the information coming from the bios, mainboard or the RAID…
Here is some information on how I installed (installed is a big word for these notes)
Please do not install the RPMs except if you want to play…

You can also use the 'hplog -v' to get the latest log from the BIOS.
