2 Management servers
This chapter provides the minimum hardware and software requirements for two management
servers, such as the following:
•
A required CMS.
•
An optional HPE Insight Control server provisioning management server. For ProLiant
customers wanting to perform multi-server operating system provisioning to bare metal HPE
ProLiant and BladeSystem servers, HPE Insight Control server provisioning is an optional
VM appliance.
NOTE: For HPE ProLiant customers wanting to manage a KVM cloud, HPE Matrix Operating
Environment 7.6 can create and manage KVM virtual machines from resource pools on HPE
CloudSystem 8.0, 8.1, and 8.1.2 in the same manner as for other external cloud providers. For
more information about HPE CloudSystem 8, see the documentation at http://www.hpe.com/
info/CloudSystem/docs.

Server
Requirement
Any supported HPE ProLiant server that fulfills the CPU, memory, and disk space requirements
specified in this chapter.
HPE Systems Insight Manager, HPE Insight Control virtual machine management, and the HPE
Matrix Operating Environment (HPE Matrix OE) also support operating a CMS in a virtual machine.
This configuration requires the CMS to be running a supported operating system listed in “CMS
operating systems” (page 16) and a supported hypervisor listed in “CMS supported hypervisors”
(page 19).
Processor
At least 1.6 GHz (2 GHz or faster recommended).
For HPE Matrix OE, four or more processing cores are required with a minimum of 1.6 GHz
processors. The recommended configuration is eight processing cores at 2.4 GHz or greater.
Memory
For memory requirements, see Table 4 (page 10).
Disk space
For disk space requirements, see Table 5 (page 10).
File structure
NTFS

A warning message displays if the amount of memory is below this value, but the installation or upgrade will continue. However,
the physical memory (RAM) on a CMS must be equal to at least 8 GB on an x64 system, otherwise the HPE Insight Management
installation or upgrade will not proceed.
Performance will be less than optimal if the CMS does not have the recommended amount of memory.
Customers using more than 1000 networks should use at least the recommended memory amount for HPE VCEM.
NOTE: For information about using HPE Insight Remote Support with HPE SIM, system
requirements and product support, see the HPE Insight Remote Support documentation at http://
www.hpe.com/info/insightremotesupport/docs.
CMS disk space
Table 5 (page 10) lists the amount of available disk space on the CMS that is required to install
or upgrade HPE Insight Management. The amount of available disk space depends on the
software products you select and the type of installation that is being performed (that is, a new
installation of a product, an upgrade of an existing product, or reuse of the same version of an
existing installed product).
If you are installing HPE Insight Management on an alternate drive (that is, not the system drive
where the OS is installed), the HPE Insight Management Installer needs an additional 8 GB of
temp space. The HPE Insight Management Installer looks in the User temp location, so if an
additional 8 GB is not available, change the User temp variable to point to another location that
has 8 GB of available space. However, when you are installing on an alternate drive, the system
drive still needs at least 1 GB of available disk space.
IMPORTANT: For an upgrade, the required disk space must be available on the original
installation drive. Be sure to check requirements before you begin an upgrade, because you
might need to expand the available space.

Table 6 (page 11) lists additional disk space considerations.
Table 6 CMS disk space considerations
Software component
Disk space requirement
HPE Insight Control power
management
Disk space is consumed by the storage of power history data for each supported system.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends allocating 12 MB per system per year of
history.
For example, a total of 2000 power managed systems, monitored PDUs/PDRs, and
associated racks and data centers consume approximately 24 GB of disk space for
one year of power history data.
This disk space is consumed on the Microsoft SQL Server database server.
HPE Capacity Advisor
Additional disk space is required for each workload to collect and preserve data for use
by HPE Capacity Advisor.
For the default retention period of four years:
• Allocate 64.5 MB for each workload on each Windows or Linux managed system
to support agentless data collection.
• Allocate 34.7 MB for each workload on each HP-UX managed system.
HPE Global Workload Manager
(gWLM)
Requires at least 1 GB of disk space.
If you intend to keep historical data, Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends allowing
4 GB for every 100 workloads managed by the HPE Global Workload Manager.
If you are not interested in historical data, use the gWLM history --truncate
command to trim the historical database.
This space will be allocated on the Microsoft SQL Server database server.
HPE Insight Remote Support
For information about using Insight Remote Support with HPE SIM, system requirements
and product support, see the HPE Insight Remote Support documentation at:
http://www.hpe.com/info/insightremotesupport/docs
For recommendations on increased disk space requirements depending on how many
devices you are managing, go to http://www.hpe.com/info/insightremotesupport/
docs. Select your supported version and access the HPE Insight Remote Support
Release Notes.
Management capabilities of a CMS with a maximum tested configuration
Table 7 (page 12) lists the management capabilities supported by the recommended x64 CMS
configuration that is running eight processing cores at 2.4 GHz with 24 GB RAM and 50 GB disk
space and a separate remote database server that is running with eight processing cores at 2.4
GHz with 16 GB RAM and 50 GB of disk space.

NOTE: Guidelines for HPE Matrix OE recovery management in a federated CMS
environment:
DR protect IO services
• In a federated environment, DR protection of IO services with HPE Matrix OE
recovery management is only supported on a primary CMS at both the Preferred
and Secondary Sites.
• All DR protected IO services must be on the primary CMS. This can be controlled
in HPE Matrix OE infrastructure orchestration by ensuring server pools on the primary
CMS are used when provisioning IO service templates that are recoverable.
DR protect logical servers that are part of IO services
• You can use HPE Matrix OE recovery management to DR protect logical servers
that are part of IO services on a primary or secondary CMS.
• HPE Matrix OE recovery management must be installed on the secondary federated
CMS at both the HPE Matrix OE recovery management Preferred and Secondary
Sites.
• HPE Matrix OE recovery management can only protect the logical servers that reside
on the same CMS where it is installed.
DR protect logical servers that are not part of an IO service
• You can use HPE Matrix OE recovery management to DR protect logical servers
on a primary or secondary federated CMS.
• HPE Matrix OE recovery management must be installed on the secondary federated
CMS at both the HPE Matrix OE recovery management Preferred and Secondary
Sites.
• HPE Matrix OE recovery management can only protect the logical servers that reside
on the same CMS where it is installed.
For additional information on federated CMS configurations, see the HPE Matrix
Operating Environment Infrastructure Orchestration User Guide available at the Hewlett
Packard Enterprise Information Library.
For additional information on DR protection of logical servers that are part of IO services,

HPE Insight Control server provisioning
HPE Insight Control server provisioning is a VM appliance that runs on a separate VMware
vSphere (ESXi) or Microsoft Hyper-V host. It requires two IP addresses; a management address
that is used for connecting to the appliance web interface and REST API, and a deployment IP
that is used for communicating with the target servers. The appliance can be configured in either
single NIC configuration where the two IPs share the same NIC, or a dual NIC configuration
where each IP is on a separate NIC.
In a single NIC configuration, both IP addresses must be in the same subnet and must have
connectivity to the target servers, the target server iLOs, and the media server. In a dual NIC
configuration, NIC1 is considered the management NIC and is used to connect to the appliance.
NIC2 is considered the deployment NIC and must have connectivity to the deployment NIC on
each target server and the media server. Connectivity to the target server iLOs can be through
either the deployment or management NIC.
HPE Insight Control server provisioning requires a media server to store the OS distributions,
Windows captured images for image deployment, the full SPP version(s), and HPE Intelligent
Provisioning firmware. The media server is a system separate from the HPE Insight Control
server provisioning appliance and can be based on either Windows or Linux and be either a
virtual machine or physical server, but must be configured as described in the HPE Insight Control
server provisioning documentation available at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Information
14

Library. A special Media Server Setup Utility is provided which will automate the configuration
of a Windows system as a media server.
NOTE: HPE Insight Control server provisioning and HP Insight Control server deployment
cannot be active on the same network at the same time because they make use of PXE. They
must be configured on separate networks or only one can be actively configured for booting at
a time.
Table 9 (page 15) lists the hardware requirements for HPE Insight Control server provisioning
based on the size of the configuration (demo, small or large). At a minimum, the HPE Insight
Control server provisioning appliance must have at least 4 CPUs, 16 GB memory, and 200 GB
of disk space.

CAUTION: Hewlett Packard Enterprise strongly recommends using thick (VMware) or fixed size (Hyper-V) disk provisioning.
If you use thin provisioning and your VM host disk runs out of space, the appliance will crash and may not recover. You will need
to install a new appliance or restore from backup.
HPE Insight Control server provisioning solution limits and scalability
HPE Insight Control server provisioning has the following limits:
•
The maximum number of servers under management is 5,000.
•
The maximum number of servers on which you can perform an action on is 1,000.
•
The maximum number of simultaneous users is 5.
•
Across all running Build Plans, only 50 servers at a time will simultaneously be active. As
processing completes on the active servers, other servers in the queue will start up such
that the number of active jobs remains at no more than 50.

These versions of HPE IC server provisioning are updates only and cannot be used to install as a new appliance. You must first
install the correct older version and then apply the update.
IMPORTANT: If you have the version of HPE IC server provisioning 7.4 or lower installed, you
must first update to 7.4.1 or 7.5 and then update to 7.6. For instructions on updating HPE IC
server provisioning from the 7.2.x or 7.3.x version to the 7.6 version, see HPE Insight Control
Server Provisioning Installation Guide at http://www.hpe.com/info/insightcontrol/docs.
Each version of HPE Matrix OE supports a specific release of the SPP. When using a version
of HPE IC server provisioning whose version number does not match the HPE Matrix OE version,
you will need to modify your Build Plans to use driver packages and SPP media that matches
the version that HPE Matrix OE supports. Table 11 (page 16) lists the SPP versions that go with
each HPE Matrix OE version, and the HPE IC server provisioning versions that are supported
with these.

Management servers
IMPORTANT: HPE Insight Management requires the Microsoft SQL Server database to be
configured in non-binary collation mode. Binary collation mode is not supported.
For information on how to change the collation mode if it is set to binary mode, see the HPE
Insight Management Installation and Configuration Guide available at the Hewlett Packard
Enterprise Information Library.
IMPORTANT: HPE Insight Management supports use of SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn Availability
Groups with clustered CMS configurations. Data synchronization to any secondary replicas must
be disabled to ensure a successful update or upgrade of the HPE Insight Management software.
For information on clustered CMS configurations, see the Installing and upgrading HPE Insight
Management on Windows Server 2012 Failover Clusters white paper available at the Hewlett
Packard Enterprise Information Library.
For information on disabling data synchronization in SQL AlwaysOn Availability Groups, see the
Microsoft documentation at: Disable AlwaysOn Availability Groups.
If you must install a database, Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express (32-bit) is included on HPE
Insight Management 7.6 DVD #1.

A clustered CMS requires a clustered instance of SQL Server 2014 Enterprise or Standard Edition or SQL Server 2012 Enterprise
SP2 or Standard SP2 edition. The instance may run in the CMS cluster or in another cluster that is a member of the same domain
as the CMS cluster.
Supports up to 7,000 systems and 50,000 events.
3
Supports up to 500 systems and 5,000 events.

Only HPE Systems Insight Manager supports this database.
Supported CMS configurations in a Microsoft Windows domain
Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that you adhere to the following guidelines for your
single-server CMS configuration:
22
•
Do not install HPE Insight Management on domain controllers.
•
If one server is in a workgroup, make sure that each server has a local account with the
same name and password (both for services and database credentials).
•
Do not install HPE Insight Control server provisioning and the HPE ProLiant Server OS
Deployment Toolkit for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager(HPE OneView for
Microsoft System Center, formerly HPE Insight Control for Microsoft System Center) in the
same subnet. Both of these provide their own separate PXE boot services, and networking
issues can arise if both are installed on the same subnet at the same time.
•
Do not install HPE Insight Control server provisioning and an HPE Ignite-UX server in the
same subnet.
•
Do not install HP Insight Control server deployment and HPE Insight Control server
provisioning in the same subnet. Both of these provide their own separate PXE boot services,
and networking issues can arise if both are installed on the same subnet at the same time.
•
HPE Matrix OE uses Microsoft Windows Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication for the HPE
Matrix OE services/processes database connectivity. Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends
that you use the same Microsoft Windows domain account credentials for both the HPE
Systems Insight Manager installation, the HPE Matrix OE installation, and the database
access.
Management servers
A CMS configuration can have either remote or local databases:
•
A CMS database for the CMS to store information about all managed devices.
The databases can be local to the CMS or can be located on a remote system. The CMS and
the SQL Server database servers can either be in the same domain or in a trusted domain.
NOTE: This release of HPE Insight Management also supports the configuration of the CMS
as a two-node failover cluster. For more information about a CMS configuration in a high availability
environment, see “Management servers in a high availability environment” (page 25).
KVM virtual machine provisioning
For HPE ProLiant customers wanting to manage a KVM cloud, HPE Matrix OE 7.6 can create
and manage KVM virtual machines from resource pools on HPE CloudSystem 8.0, 8.1, and 8.1.2
in the same manner as for other external cloud providers. For more information about HPE
CloudSystem 8, see the documentation at http://www.hpe.com/info/CloudSystem/docs.
HPE Insight Control server provisioning software
HPE Insight Control server provisioning runs on the following hypervisors:
•
VMware vSphere (ESXi) version 5.5, 5.5 Update 1, 5.5 Update 2, 5.5 Update 3a, and 5.5
Update 3b
•
VMware vSphere (ESXi) version 6.0, 6.0 Update 1a, 6.0 Update 1b, and 6.0 Update 2
•
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V
•
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 with Hyper-V
•
Microsoft Windows Server 2016 with Hyper-V
NOTE: There are special considerations for using HPE Insight Control server provisioning in
an HPE Matrix Operating Environment which has been using HP Insight Control server
deployment. See the Data Migration from HP Insight Control server deployment to HPE Insight
Control server provisioning white paper available at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Information
Library.
NOTE: To join a server to an Active Directory domain with Matrix environments using either
HPE Insight Control server provisioning or HPE Server Automation deployment, it is required to
use the enhanced server customization feature rather than the default post install customization.
Joining a domain during deployment causes the HPE Matrix OE post-install customization step
to fail with an error stating:
Error customizing Logical Server <Logical server name> realized by
<target UUID>.

To access the HPE Matrix Operating Environment using Windows Server 2012, turn on the Desktop Experience feature in
Windows Programs and Features.
HPE SPM does not support Chrome versions 50 and later since Silverlight is not supported with those versions.
When you try to launch HPE SPM via Chrome 42 or later, you must install Silverlight and enable the NPAPI plugin. Google has
ended the support for NPAPI. However, you can temporarily enable the NPAPI plugin by following these steps:
6
7
1. Open Chrome.
2. In the address bar at the top of the screen, type chrome://flags/#enable-npapi
3. In the window that opens, click the link Enable under the Enable NPAPI flag.
4. In the bottom left corner of the page, click the Relaunch Now button.
Temporary enabling of NPAPI plugin is not supported in Chrome version 45 and later.
Recommended screen resolution
The minimum supported resolution for all management servers is 800 x 600 pixels. For the HPE
Insight Control server provisioning appliance, the minimum supported screen resolution is 1024
x 768. For optimum performance, the screen size should be at least 1280 × 1024 pixels for
desktop monitors, or 1280 × 800 for laptop displays.

Management servers
3 Management servers in a high availability environment
This chapter defines the requirements for a CMS in a high availability environment.
CMS in an HA environment
Using failover clustering with HPE Insight Management is a simple way to achieve redundancy,
availability, load balancing, and failover capability.
The CMS can be configured as a single-site, two-node physical server Microsoft Windows Server
2012 failover cluster to create a highly-available environment.
CMS clustering is an included feature of the Microsoft Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 Standard
and Microsoft Windows Server 2016 operating systems, and cluster support is an included feature
of the Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Enterprise or Standard Edition and Microsoft SQL Server 2012
Enterprise SP2 and Standard SP2 Edition. For more information, see Features Supported by
the Editions of SQL Server 2014 and Features Supported by the Editions of SQL Server
2012.
Installing or upgrading a CMS cluster follows a different procedure from that of a single-server
CMS installation or upgrade. For more information, see the Installing and upgrading HPE Insight
Management 7.6 on Windows Server 2012 Failover Clusters white paper available at the Hewlett
Packard Enterprise Information Library.

CMS cluster configuration
•
Two-node clusters, consisting of two HPE ProLiant servers (that is, physical servers, not
virtual machines) and attached shared storage, are supported. Each server must satisfy the
hardware and recommended requirements for HPE Insight Management and the Microsoft
Windows Server 2012 Standard, 2012 R2 Standard, or 2016 Standard and Datacenter
editions including processor, memory, networking, and disk space.
To validate servers and storage that are certified for Microsoft Windows Server, see
“Management servers” (page 9) and the following Microsoft website: http://
www.windowsservercatalog.com/.
26
•
Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends SAN shared storage, although you can use any
shared storage that Microsoft clustering supports.
•
Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends SAN boot for the two cluster nodes.
•
Each server requires two dedicated network adapters, at minimum, one for a public
(client-facing) network and another for a private cluster network. Each server requires a third
dedicated adapter if you use an iSCSI SAN.
•
The SQL server must run either in the same cluster with HPE Insight Management or in a
remote Windows cluster that is a member of the same Windows domain as the HPE Insight
Management cluster.
Management servers in a high availability environment
•
An Active Directory domain infrastructure and DNS services suitable for hosting the cluster
are required, but they cannot run on either of the two cluster nodes.
•
The fully configured cluster must pass the Validate test in the Windows Failover Cluster
Manager.
Unsupported items in a CMS cluster configuration
•
Brocade Network Advisor, HP P6000 Command View Software, HPE Operations
Orchestration, VMware vCenter Server module, and similar applications are not permitted
in a CMS cluster.
•
Multi-site Windows cluster: A CMS cluster is a single-site cluster.

Third-party servers
HPE Matrix Operating Environment virtual logical servers are supported on third-party servers
running a supported hypervisor. Third-party servers are licensed for HPE Matrix Operating
Environment and HPE Insight Control virtual machine management through the HPE Matrix
Operating Environment license. For licensing information, see quickspecs at http://www.hpe.com/
info/matrixoe-qs.
In general, any server listed in the VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor compatibility guides
is supported as follows. However, if HPE Systems Insight Manager cannot obtain the server's
serial number, then HPE SIM cannot support the server. VM guests cannot be moved from one
third-party vendor’s server to another.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise tested select models from the following server families. They represent
a sample of the third party servers that can be supported.
•
Dell PowerEdge
•
IBM System x servers
•
Cisco UCS
For information about Microsoft Hyper-V compatibility, search for Hyper-V from the http://
www.windowsservercatalog.com website.
For information about VMware compatibility, use the search function at http://www.vmware.com/
resources/compatibility/search.php.

Managed systems hardware
NOTE: HPE Insight Control migration, performance, power management, and server
provisioning are not supported on these servers because you cannot apply an HPE Insight Control
license to a third-party server. VMs using raw devices, HPE Matrix OE recovery management,
and physical server provisioning are also not supported on third-party servers. To understand
the functionality that HPE SIM supports, see the white paper titled How to manage non-Hewlett
Packard Enterprise x86 Windows servers with HPE SIM available at the Hewlett Packard
Enterprise Information Library.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends the Hewlett Packard Enterprise storage solution portfolio
of products, which includes:
•
HPE 3PAR StoreServ
•
HP P6000 EVA
•
HPE XP P9000
You must provide connectivity to a compatible Fibre Channel SAN array. Customer-supplied
Fibre Channel switches to an external SAN must support boot from SAN and NPIV functionality.
Supported storage products
41
To obtain a list of switches and storage devices that are supported by HPE Virtual Connect Fibre
Channel:
1. Open a browser to the following website:
http://www.hpe.com/storage/spock
2.
3.
If you are a new user and do not have an HPE Passport account, register for an account. If
you have an account, sign in.
Navigate to Other Hardware→Virtual Connect→HPE Virtual Connect 8Gb-24p FC
Connectivity stream.
iSCSI SAN
iSCSI is supported only by HPE Matrix OE as a virtual backing store (not a physical server booting
from iSCSI or a virtual machine directly accessing raw iSCSI LUNs).
To use iSCSI, you must provide connectivity to a compatible iSCSI SAN. As with Fibre Channel
storage, the storage vendor generally certifies end-to-end support for an iSCSI storage device.
VMware and Microsoft independently certify third-party devices with their respective operating
systems, hypervisors, and iSCSI initiators. Confirmation of device support by the hypervisor
vendor is a prerequisite to support within HPE Insight Management.
NOTE: For security, reliability, and performance, Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends
separate, dedicated iSCSI networks for iSCSI LAN traffic.
iSCSI targets as backing storage for VM guests
Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends the following iSCSI targets as backing storage for virtual
machine guests:

HP Integrity VM virtual machine guests must have an HP-UX operating system type. Windows and Linux guests are not supported.
For more information about requirements and restrictions for HP Integrity VM hosts running on HP-UX, see Table 54 (page 64).
HP Integrity VM supports NPIV for the Emulex HBA and Converged Network Adapter from HPVM version B.06.30.
Not supported by HPE Matrix OE for shared data disks. Supported for boot or private data disks, but raw LUNs (VMware RDM,
Hyper-V Disk Pass-Through, or HP Integrity VM SAN-based or NPIV-based disks) cannot be shared among VMs.
Not supported by HPE Matrix OE recovery management when using HPE Matrix OE infrastructure orchestration to provision
recoverable services.
Shared virtual disks are not supported.
HPE Matrix OE recovery management supports only HPE 3PAR StoreServ iSCSI (Table 31 (page 37)) as a VM backing store.
For other iSCSI storage systems that HPE Matrix Operating Environment supports, HPE Matrix OE recovery management
provides a user-defined storage adapter interface specification for integration. For more information, see HPE Matrix Operating

HPE Matrix OE support in VMware VXLAN environments
HPE Matrix OE supports VMware VXLAN with specific prerequisites and considerations. Correctly
configured and used, HPE Matrix OE can provision and import VMs in an environment using
VMware VXLAN. Specifically, HPE Matrix OE is able to provision infrastructure using virtual
networks from vShield Manager, configured under dvSwitches. Customers can use HPE Matrix
OE infrastructure orchestration to display networks from vCenter, configure those networks in
HPE Matrix OE infrastructure orchestration, assign networks to organizations, and provision
infrastructure using service templates.
HPE Matrix OE support in Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Management (SCVMM)
NVGRE environments
HPE Matrix OE supports Microsoft Hyper-V Network Virtualization using Generic Routing
Encapsulation (NVGRE) environments with specific prerequisites and considerations. HPE Matrix
OE can provision virtual machines in an environment configured with Hyper-V NVGRE. Specifically,
HPE Matrix OE is able to provision HPE Matrix OE infrastructure orchestration service templates
using virtual networks which are created in Microsoft SCVMM and applied on Hyper-V VM Hosts.
Virtual Subnets created in Microsoft SCVMM are listed in the HPE Matrix OE infrastructure
orchestration Networks tab. These networks can be configured in HPE Matrix OE based on
organization requirements and services can be provisioned using service templates.
Flat SAN
HPE Matrix Operating Environment supports the use of Flat SAN technology by several
hypervisors to directly connect from the FlexFabric module to an HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage
system. The following configurations for each hypervisor are supported:
•
VMware (standalone and clustered)—VMs using file-based and/or RDM volumes from Flat
SAN connected HPE 3PAR StoreServ (hypervisor configured to use Flat SAN out-of-band
to HPE Matrix OE).
•
Hyper-V (standalone and clustered)—VMs using file-based and/or Disk Pass-Through
volumes from Flat SAN connected HPE 3PAR StoreServ (hypervisor configured to use Flat
SAN out-of-band to HPE Matrix OE).
•
HP Integrity VMs—VMs using file-based and SAN-based LUNs through AVIO (hypervisor
configured to use Flat SAN out-of-band to Matrix, AVIO SAN-based LUNs configured
out-of-band to HPE Matrix OE, and HPE Matrix OE only provisions NPIV-based LUNs); Flat
SAN requires FlexFabric modules. HP Integrity VM supports NPIV for the Converged Network
Adapters.
HPE Matrix OE does not provision volumes for physical servers from the direct connect HPE
3PAR StoreServ Storage system.
HPE Matrix OE storage support
HPE Matrix OE supports the use of virtual and physical logical servers. “Storage options for
virtual machine guests” (page 43) lists the virtual server storage options. Physical logical servers
use storage provisioned from the SAN for flexible movement.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends Fibre Channel Storage Area Network (SAN) with
boot-from-SAN capability (for physical blade deployments). HPE Matrix OE supports any Fibre
Channel storage solution, which supports the HPE Virtual Connect environment (including the
ability to present storage to an initiator WWN which is not yet visible on the fabric), N_Port ID
Virtualization (NPIV), and boot-from-SAN capability. HPE Matrix OE supports SAN-based storage
for HP Integrity VM logical servers. For more information, see the HPE Matrix Operating
Environment Logical Server Management User Guide.
44
Managed systems hardware
To realize the benefits of HPE Virtual Connect logical servers, including the ability to move logical
servers and to easily repurpose server blades associated with inactive logical servers, you must
remove or disable any local disks.
HPE Matrix OE supports VMware vSphere Storage DRS automated load balancing, including
use of multiple datastores.
Storage support for HPE Matrix OE provisioning
The storage validation feature of HPE Matrix OE visualization with logical server management
capabilities is supported on the following Hewlett Packard Enterprise disk arrays:
•
•
HPE P2000 G3 MSA Storage, HPE MSA 2040 Fibre Channel, and HPE MSA 1040 Fibre
Channel
◦
Using explicit or default mapping
◦
MSA SMI-S provider version 1.1.2 or later
EVA 4x00/6x00/8x00 and HP P6300/P6350/P6500/P6550
NOTE: Support for a password-protected HP P6000 EVA Storage System array requires
the HP P6000 Command View Software to be configured to enable password access to the
array (with the same password as is set on the array).
HPE Matrix OE logical server capabilities, including storage validation and integration with the
HPE Storage Provisioning Manager (HPE SPM), support HP P6000 Command View Software
versions 10.3, 10.3.1, 10.3.2, 10.3.3, 10.3.4, 10.3.5, 10.3.6, and 10.3.7.
HPE Matrix Operating Environment supports preprovisioned Fibre Channel storage and
on-demand provisioned storage through integration with HPE Storage Provisioning Manager.
HPE SPM supports the HPE 3PAR StoreServ, HP P6000/EVA, and HPE P9000/XP Storage
Systems. On-demand provisioning (including automated zoning of Brocade SAN environments)
is supported for HPE 3PAR StoreServ and HP EVA. For more information, see the HPE Storage
Provisioning Manager (SPM) User Guide available at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Information Library.
On-demand provisioning is also supported for the EMC Symmetrix VMAX storage arrays through
the HPE SPM adapter. When HPE Matrix Operating Environment is installed on the CMS, the
HPE SPM adapter for EMC Symmetrix VMAX will be installed on the system (unless it was
unselected). By default, the HPE SPM adapter for EMC Symmetrix VMAX is disabled. For more
information about enabling the HPE SPM adapter for EMC Symmetrix VMAX, see HPE Insight
Management Installation and Configuration Guide available at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Information Library.
Storage support for HPE Matrix OE recovery management
Use of HPE Matrix OE recovery management requires any of the following plus replication
software:
•
HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage
•
HP P6000 EVA Storage System
•
HPE XP P9000 Storage System
HPE Matrix OE recovery management replicates data between the preferred and recovery sites
using HPE 3PAR Remote Copy replication software, HP P6000 Continuous Access Software,
or HPE 9000 Continuous Access Software. HPE Matrix OE recovery management only supports
two-site data replication (1–1), 1–N site replication is not a supported configuration. Each site
requires its own instance of HP P6000 Command View Software to manage the HP P6000 EVA

Supported hypervisor hosts and VM guests
Table 53 (page 61) lists hypervisor hosts and VM guests supported on managed systems. The
letter h (host) in a column means that the corresponding application manages this hypervisor
running as a VM host. Similarly, the letter g (guest) in a column means that the corresponding
application supports VM guests under this hypervisor.
For HPE Insight Control server provisioning, the letter h (host) means that server provisioning
can deploy that hypervisor, and the letter g (guest) means that server provisioning can deploy
to VM guests on that particular hypervisor. To verify that a particular server supports a specific
hypervisor, see the following certification and support website: http://www.hpe.com/info/
server-supportmatrix. The minimum required memory for any target server is 2 GB.
HP Integrity VM Manager supports the HP Integrity VM hypervisors listed in Table 53 (page 61).
Hypervisor hosts are not supported for DR protection with HPE Matrix OE recovery management.
HPE Insight Control virtual machine management does not support VMware ESXi download
editions or VMware ESXi servers without a valid license.

Managed systems software
NOTE: For HPE ProLiant customers wanting to manage a KVM cloud, HPE Matrix 7.6 can
create and manage KVM virtual machines from resource pools on HPE CloudSystem 8.0, 8.1,
and 8.1.2 (through either HPE CloudSystem Foundation or next-generation CloudSystem
Enterprise). HPE Matrix OE 7.6 also supports creating KVM virtual machines through use of HPE
Matrix KVM Private Cloud resource pools. Specifics of the hypervisor hosts and VM guests
required for those environments are documented separately.
•
For HPE CloudSystem Foundation or next-generation CloudSystem Enterprise, see the
documentation at http://www.hpe.com/info/CloudSystem/docs.

Supported hypervisor hosts and VM guests
65
Memory/CPU Hot Plug capabilities information
Some virtualization technologies support the ability to modify memory and CPU attributes without
rebooting the VM. For example, enabling HotAddMemory and HotPlugCPU properties on virtual
machines. When supported by the virtualization technologies, these capabilities are enabled by
default for VMs created by HPE Matrix OE infrastructure orchestration or by HPE Matrix OE
visualization with logical server management capabilities. The steps required for the guest OS
to recognize such changes are dependent on the operating system used and also on the
hypervisor used. The GUI, CLI, and API forms of this operation provide an option to cancel the
request if the hypervisor requires a reboot. The GUI defaults to a selected check box to avoid
the reboot, which you can clear to allow the reboot. The API and CLI continue to perform the
reboot by default. However, as an administrator, you can specify new options to avoid the reboot.
For more information, see HPE Matrix Operating Environment Infrastructure Orchestration User
Guide at http://www.hpe.com/info/matrixoe/docs.
VMware vCenter limitations for Memory/CPU Hot Plug capabilities
The VMware vCenter GUI does not allow you to enable the Memory and CPU Hot Plug capabilities
for those ESXi VMs that are in a powered on state. However, HPE Insight Control virtual machine
management supports enabling and disabling the Memory and CPU Hot Plug capabilities,
regardless of the power state of the VM.
VMware documents details of Hot Add Memory and Hot Add vCPU support for various VM guest
operating systems in the Guest OS Compatibility Guide available at http://
partnerweb.vmware.com/comp_guide2/pdf/VMware_GOS_Compatibility_Guide.pdf.

A Hardware requirements and supported capabilities for
HPE Insight Control power management
This appendix describes the support requirements for HPE Insight Control power management.
The minimum firmware versions listed in this appendix apply only to HPE Insight Control power
management. For firmware requirements that apply to the entire HPE Insight Management stack,
see “Managed system firmware” (page 48).
The license redemption process for HPE Insight Control generates separate license keys for all
HPE Insight Control capabilities, including power management, and generates the license keys
for iLO Advanced and iLO Advanced for BladeSystem. To use HPE Insight Control power
management, you must apply an iLO Advanced license key to the server.
Power management capabilities
HPE Insight Control power management provides the following power management capabilities:
•
Power Regulator enables dynamic or static changes in CPU performance and power states.
In dynamic mode, Power Regulator automatically adjusts the processor power usage and
performance of a server to match CPU application activity. It improves server energy efficiency
by giving CPUs full power for applications when they need it and enabling power savings
without performance degradation when application activity is reduced. For more information,
see the Power Regulator website:
http://www.hpe.com/info/ilo
•
Dynamic Power Capping reclaims trapped power and cooling capacity by safely limiting
peak power consumption of servers.
•
Data Center Thermal Mapping aggregates the data from thermal sensors in the servers
and draws a thermal map of the room.
•
Power Metering provides real-time measurements of actual power consumption so that
you can find and fix inefficiencies.
•
Calibrated Maximum Power provides calibrated maximum power to enable power planning
based on accurately measured peak potential power for each device instead of estimates.
•
Data Center Power Control protects critical loads by reducing power to noncritical servers
during cooling system failures. The features of Data Center Power Control available on the
hardware are subject to the capabilities of the operating systems that are listed in Table 53
(page 61).
•
Intelligent Power Discovery automatically detects the PDU and outlet that a server is
plugged into.
Server requirements and supported capabilities for HPE Insight Control

Data Center Power Control works only on Primary Addresses of a system and cannot detect a system with a non-primary address.
If a system has IPv4 as a primary address and IPv6 as a non-primary address, Data Center Power Control only works with the
IPv4 address.
For VM host with only an IPv6 address. Data Center Power Control cannot perform a graceful shut down of guests. It will only
shutdown the hosts.
The Intelligent Power discovery feature is not supported when iPDU is configured with IPv6 addresses only.
When you are implementing power capping for BladeSystem, Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that you use Enclosure
Dynamic Power Capping set through the Onboard Administrator or HPE Insight Control power management user interface. To
use Enclosure Dynamic Power Capping, you must upgrade your iLO 2 firmware to version 1.70 or later and iLO 3 to version 1.0
or later. Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that you update your system ROM to version 10/1/2008 or later for iLO 2, and
May 2010 or later for iLO 3 for G7 servers. For some older BL460c servers, the iLO 2 firmware might not be able to automatically
update the Dynamic Power Capping hardware circuit. In these instances, the HPE Onboard Administrator will compensate for
the absence of the internal hardware circuit and continue to guarantee circuit protection.
For Enclosure Dynamic Power Capping, iLO 2 version 1.70 or later. Otherwise, iLO 2 version 2 1.30 or later.
For Enclosure Dynamic Power Capping, OA 2.30 or later. Otherwise, OA 1.30 or later.
Temperature related information or this feature is supported with iLO4 v2.02 and later versions.

The BIOS version does not apply to these servers.
Data Center Power Control works only on Primary Addresses of a system and cannot detect a system with a non-primary address.
If a system has IPv4 as a primary address and IPv6 as a non-primary address, Data Center Power Control only works with the
IPv4 address.
For VMhost with only an IPv6 address. Data Center Power Control cannot perform a graceful shutdown of guests. It will only
shutdown the hosts.
The Intelligent Power discovery feature is not supported when iPDU is configured with IPv6 addresses only.
Requires iLO firmware version 01.40.42 or later.
The DCPC Power ON/OFF action is not supported for this server.

Adapters, controllers, network cards and memory cards that HPE Insight
Control server provisioning supports
HPE Insight Control server provisioning supports options used with the target servers, such as
memory cards, network adapters and storage controllers. However, due to limitations with firmware
and drivers, there are some exceptions. Table 77 (page 105), Table 78 (page 105), and
Table 79 (page 108) provide information about the supported options.
Some adapters and controllers are only supported via a PXE boot. The HPE Insight Control
server provisioning Hewlett Packard Enterprise-provided Build Plans boot to HPE Intelligent
Provisioning by default on all HPE ProLiant Gen8 and greater servers. To change a build plan
to boot to PXE, add --method=network and --force to all Boot script steps’ parameters
within the Build Plans. For HPE Matrix OE environments, see the HPE Matrix Operating
Environment Release Notes located at http://www.hpe.com/info/matrixoe/docs for information
about disabling PXE-less boot using HPE Intelligent Provisioning at a global level or for specific
servers (forcing PXE boot).
IMPORTANT: For information about how to deploy an operating system to target servers with
SAN, see the HPE SAN Design Reference Guide by clicking on the General Reference link
located at http://www.hpe.com/info/SAN-manuals. Open zone configuration violates several
of the HPE SAN Design Guide best practices rules, and these violations may be the cause of
server crashes. Please see sections on Common server, common HBAs, different HBAs, and
Zoning rules in the HPE SAN Design Reference Guide for guidance.
IMPORTANT: For more information regarding HPE Emulex adapters, see the HPE Emulex
Adapters Release Notes located at http://www.hpe.com/info/hpesc
104 Requirements and caveats for HPE Insight Control server provisioning
NOTE: For servers with both Emulex and QLogic cards, only one can be enabled on the target
server when deploying an OS.
