In my previous post we configured HP OneView to manage HP c7000 enclosure. Today I will show you how to replace self signed certificate with one from trusted Certificate Authority.
For a period of days I am working on replacing self-signed certificates in my environment and I found one issue with my enclosure. My certificate authority supports only 2048 Bits Certificate Signing Requests and in my case enclosure had 1024 Bits certificate. I found solution how to quickly fix problem and replace self-signed certificate.
I have worked with HP Hardware (rack and blade servers) for more than five Years. I think that blades and HP enclosure is fantastic product and has wonderful capabilities.
Managing you blade infrastructure might be sometimes challenging. I decided to guide you through components of HP c7000 Enclosure and components you can use. After short introduction I went through initial configuration and additional settings which I thing are quite useful.
HP c7000 Enclosure overview
The HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure goes beyond just Blade servers. It consolidates server, storage, networking and power management into a single solution that can be managed as a unified environment.
Keeping you hardware and software up to date is very important in every environment. Today I will guide you through firmware update in HP c7000 Enclosures.
One of my recent tasks was to upgrade firmware version of virtual connect. I would like to share with you procedure how to do it.
In order to do that you need two things:

One of my recent tasks at work was to test **HP 365GB MLC IO Accelerator for BladeSystem c-Class **in order to accelerate Database workloads on Virtual Machines.
Today I found that several of my ESXi servers running on HP Blade bl460c G8 had warning in Hardware Status tab in vSphere client.
Since quite a long time I have a pleasure to work with HP Enclosures c7000 and c3000. HP Blades with enclosures is the really great enterprise solution. Over the years I found difficult to manage multiple enclosures with local users and this is where integration with Active Directory makes your life simpler. In few steps, I will guide you how to integrate Onboard Administrator with Active Directory LDAP.
