HI,

I am trying to install HP Insight manager agents on a HP DL380 G5

I have extracted the contents and put them in a users directory on the ESX server. I browse to the dir and issue the command ./installvm801.sh install

and get

bash: ./installvm810.sh: permission denied

I follow the below

1) Go to the HP website and search for HP Insight Manager Agents for VMware ESX Server
2) Download the Agents
3) Open WinSCP and upload the .tar file you just downloaded to the (for example) /home/<username> folder
4) Log into putty with your normal user account and issue the su command to become root
5) Issue the following command to unzip the contents:
tar -zxvf hpmgmt-7.5.1a-vmware.tgz.
This will create a new subdirectory home/<username>/hpmgmt/751
6) You must enable the firewall port for the `hpim' service (2381) for accessing the System Management Homepage. The `snmpd' service should be enabled in the firewall for the Insight Manager agents to communicate properly with the hp Systems Insight Manager. These ports can be enabled by using the "esxcfg-firewall" command in the service console, or by answering 'y' when prompted by the installation script.
7) To read the readme.txt, you can issue the following command on the command line: cat README.txt
8) After reading the README.txt and to begin the installation, issue the command ./installvm741.sh install

The file probably doesn't have execute permissions

try
chmod +x installvm741.sh
./installvm741.sh

or

sh ./installvm741.sh
