1 Installation preparation
HP intelligent management center (IMC) and the IMC NTA/UBA probe can run on Red Hat Linux operating
systems, as shown in Table 1.

To ensure normal operation of IMC or the IMC probe on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6.1, you must make
special configurations during and after installation of the operating system. This document describes these
configurations.
In this document, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6.1 is used as example. The configurations might vary with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server versions.
Hardware requirements
IMC can run on Linux, and stores and manages data with Oracle databases. You must correctly install the
operating system, databases, and IMC software. In addition, IMC can be accessed with Firefox browser 3.6
or a higher version, instead of using dedicated client software.
The IMC probe can also run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server. Make sure that the IMC probe is installed
on an individual server which meets the basic hardware requirements of the IMC probe and operates
properly.
For more information about the hardware requirements and basic configuration, see IMC Installation Guide
and IMC Probe Installation Guide.
Preparing the installation disc
Prepare the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6.1 installation software suite and software serial number. Set
the server to start up from the CD-ROM.
Collecting system information for installation
Collect system information to be used for installation, including the host name, IP address, and network
connection information on the target server. You can obtain the IP address and network connection
information from the network administrator.

4 Preparing Linux for IMC installation
Installing required Linux packages
The IMC installer verifies the connectivity to a database server when IMC is being installed. On Linux 6.1,
IMC can connect to Oracle and MySQL database servers only when the following packages are installed:
•
glibc-2.12-1.25.el6.i686.rpm
•
libaio-0.3.107-10.el6.i686.rpm
•
libgcc-4.4.5-6.el6.i686.rpm
•
libstdc++-4.4.5-6.el6.i686.rpm
To prepare Linux 6.1 for IMC installation, install the packages by using the following commands:
rpm -i --nodeps glibc-2.12-1.25.el6.i686.rpm
rpm -i --nodeps libaio-0.3.107-10.el6.i686.rpm
rpm -i --nodeps libgcc-4.4.5-6.el6.i686.rpm
rpm -i --nodeps libstdc++-4.4.5-6.el6.i686.rpm
Removing the existing MySQL package
Linux 6.1 comes with MySQL. To install another MySQL database, you must first remove the existing MySQL
package.
To remove the existing MySQL package:
1.
Query the installed MySQL package.
rpm –qa | grep mysql
2.
Remove the MySQL package.
rpm –e mysql-5.1.52-1.el6_0.1.x86_64
The mysql-5.1.52-1.el6_0.1.x86_64 string represents the package name. Enter the name of any
dependant package next to the MySQL package name.
