We run the HP Proliant Support Pack (drivers, agents...) on our OES servers without any issues.

Well there is one, but I don't think it's OES2 per se, but rather SLES

On some systems, you'll get the OS (SLES 10) to "hang" during shutdown with one or more of the various HP SIM agents (I'll have to lookup which agent is the culprit). We have it happen a few times, and unfortunately if you Google for that, you'll see that there's a few problems with these on the HP forums, but no response from HP (it's like HP and Linux don't go hand in hand as they're like: Linux? Never heard of that).

The DRIVERS can get you into a pickle if you're using the OEM'd qlogic drivers vs. the native Kernel drivers. We got burned a few times trying to use the HP provided Qlogic drivers, and then a SLES Kernel update happened and we couldn't boot from the SAN anymore because of "invalid parameters". Since then, we only use the native Kernel drivers for qlogic.

Thanks for that hint. I'll have a look at my machines and make sure the right drivers are used.

So far I've only noticed the problem with fibre channel Qlogic drivers. Our other HP servers have the cpqraid thingy driver and haven't noticed any problems with that and using the actual driver provided by the PSP.

(Proliant Support Pack)

I think it uses cqpiss or something like that.
