HP SmartSetup Scripting Toolkit v.3.5-7 for HP Integrity Servers with Linux for Intel® Itanium® Systems

The HP SmartSetup Scripting Toolkit (SSTK) enables you to deploy a large number of HP Integrity Intel® Itanium® servers rapidly and efficiently. Using SSTK, you can develop custom scripts that simplify server deployments by automating various hardware configuration and software installation operations. SSTK can set specific Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) boot variables, create disk partitions, and tie into the standard unattended installation process to install the OS and selected applications.

The SSTK product is delivered on the HP Insight Foundation Suite for Integrity with Linux (IFIL) on Intel® Itanium® Servers Support Pack media or can be downloaded from the HP Integrity Essentials Foundation Pack for Linux Web site located at:

The HP Integrity Essentials Foundation Pack for Linux is used to install tools, functionality, and utilities, such as HP system management software. It includes documentation for all of the products that are included in the HPIEFPL Support Pack, such as the SmartSetup Scripting Toolkit Deployment Guide: HP Integrity Servers with Linux for Intel Itanium Systems.
