HP Server Automation 9.03 Installed and Tested !!

Finally on Feb 28th, 2011, HP released patch for HP Server Automation - 9.00. The patch version is HPSA 9.03.

I downloaded it in the same day and started to play with it.

* Installation on a standalone core is very simple and easy. HPSA 9.03 goes smooth without any issue as normal.

* Installation on a single or two slices, also simple but little bit of additional patience. :)

Here is my HPSA 9.03 Core's Version Page :)

After patching, I tested a few HPSA functions, it worked as expected. :) Nothing much to complaint or log a case with HP Support.

An issue occurred during installation,

The HPSA (Opsware) installer failed, with the following error msg in verbose log :

Connected to Facility 900 (HPSA900), v40.

To Fix this issue, I noticed that my oiresponse.word_uploads has wrong parameter for the argument %truth.dcId. After fixing it to the correct one, the installer works fine.

So far, I have patched HPSA 9.03 on a multiple slices core and in a multi-master mesh about 10 times. No failures faced.
