One of the frequently asked question is how do I run the former HP Proliant Support Pack (PSP) in Ubuntu. Most of the customers ends up installing RedHat/CentOS in their HP servers because they don’t have hardware monitoring support.
Well, this is kind of “hidden” information and also most HP employees doesn’t know this, you have to have strong connections with engineering to know the truth 😉
Just to recap, PSP has been renamed in Management Component Pack (MCP). This software let you  control and monitor HP-specific hardware components. You can configure your HP SmartArray online, monitor your hardware health with the HP System Management Homepage, or setup snmp traps for interesting events. The Management Component Pack is an essential group of utilities to help you manage Linux on your HP ProLiant servers.
To download and install these packages, simply point apt at the HP Software Delivery Repository (SDR):
Add this line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

then apt-get install the components you’d like to use:
# apt-get update
# apt-get install hpacucli
Debian packages included (apt-cache search hp | grep ^hp):

Just in case someone in the support wish to bother you, the HP  official statement is out on our support matrix:
As for their own wording: “HP will provide support for HP’s ProLiant hardware and all HP delivered drivers, firmware, utilities, tools and management software. Canonical will provide support of the operating system, software and in distribution drivers.”
Hope this helps!
