Dell PowerEdge 2950 ZenPack

This is a template for additional data collection on PowerEdge 2950 servers.

Warning

The ZenPack Catalog has moved to its new home at https://www.zenoss.com/product/zenpacks as of January 17, 2017. The following information may be out of date, and this page will eventually be removed.

Support

This ZenPack is developed by the Zenoss user community and supported via our online forums. Zenoss, Inc. does not provide direct support for this ZenPack.

Background

This is a template for additional data collection on PowerEdge 2950 servers. It would also probably prove useful on other Dell devices that use OpenManage, but may need a little tweaking (as far as number of processors, etc). It currently does the following:

Installation

Normal Installation (packaged egg)

  1. Download the appropriate egg file for the version of Zenoss you are running.
  2. Ensure you are logged in as the zenoss user:
    $ sudo su - zenoss
  3. Install the ZenPack:
    $ zenpack --install zenpack-*.egg
  4. Restart these services:
    $ zenoss restart

Developer Mode Installation

In order to do a development mode installation you will want to clone the existing git repository, and then use the --link flag with the zenpack command:

  1. Ensure you are logged in as the zenoss user:
    $ sudo su - zenoss
  2. Start by cloning the upstream repository:
    $ git clone git://github.com/path/to/repo
  3. Next, perform the installation:
    $ zenpack --link --install zenpack_directory
  4. Finally, restart these serivices:
    $ zenoss restart
