Hi All,

I recently bought an HP DL385 to run ESXi 5 Essentials.

I've installed ESXi 5 U1 via an ISO on the HP website here.

Today the HP Insight Manager e-software license arrived, which I registered on the HP website and received an .lic and .reg file.

I downloaded the lastest copy of HP Insight manager from the HP site here

What do I need to do next, as i've never worked with HP before, so dont where to start.

    Install  a new physical or virtual server, Windows 2008 R2, physical is best.

    and install the HP Insight Manager software.

    I have a Virtual Server with Veeam and vCenter, so I'll use that.

    Do I need to do anything with the actual ESX server?

    You may want to use a separate server, because it has web services, that will clash with vCenter and Veeam, and requires an SQL database, it will be a very busy server!

    yeah, I noticed when it asked for IIS to be enabled.

    I'll have to wait until our datacenter license arrives.
