Introduction

The Version Control Agent is an HP Insight Management Agents that is installed on a server to enable you to see the HP software and firmware that is installed on that server. The Version Control Agent can be configured to point to a repository being managed by the Version Control Repository Manager, allowing easy version comparison and software update from the repository to the server on which the HP Version Control Agent is installed. The Version Control Agent provides version control and system update capabilities for a single HP server. The Version Control Agent determines server software status by comparing each component installed on the local device with the set of individual components or a specified ProLiant Support Pack listed in the Version Control Repository Manager. You can also update individual components or entire ProLiant Support Packs by clicking the install icon located next to the system software status icon.

The Version Control Agent permits users with full or limited configuration rights to perform the following tasks to maintain the software inventory of the server:

  • View the currently installed software

  • Select a Version Control Repository Manager as a reference point for obtaining software updates

  • Select whether to use a Custom Software Baseline or ProLiant Support Pack as a managed baseline

  • View whether any applicable updates are available in the Version Control Repository Manager

  • View the details associated with a Custom Software Baseline, ProLiant Support Pack, or individual software component in the Version Control Repository Manager

  • Install a Custom Software Baseline, ProLiant Support Pack, or individual software component from the Version Control Repository Manager

In addition to maintaining the software inventory of the server, the Version Control Agent integrates with HP Systems Insight Manager. This integration allows users with full configuration rights to take advantage of the software update capabilities of the agent.
