It took me a while to find the PSP for Ubuntu. It turns out that HP have renamed the old Proliant Support Pack to Management Component Pack.
However, it is much more convenient to add the HP Repository. Add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/downloads/MCP/ubuntu precise/current non-free
Download and add the repo keys to the system. The URL keeps changing and so there are a few choices before. The top on is the most likely to be the correct one.
wget http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/downloads/MCP/GPG-KEY-mcp apt-key add GPG-KEY-mcp
wget http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/downloads/MCP/GPG-KEY-mcp apt-key add GPG-KEY-mcp
wget http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/downloads/MCP/GPG-KEY-MCP apt-key add GPG-KEY-MCP
If you want to monitor raid array then install hpacucli
apt-get install hpacucli
A basic report showing the status of your raid arrays is:
hpacucli ctrl all show config
An example output is:
