Certification notes

HPDSA Driver Installation (MAAS)

This system requires the HPDSA driver for "smart array mode". In order to use systems with Dynamic Smart Array controllers in "smart array mode" with MAAS, you will need to modify drivers.yaml to include the hpdsa driver. Instructions for this can be found here: https://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/project/ubuntu-hpdsa/

HP ILO and MAAS

ILO firmware version 2.30 will not work with MAAS. To use this system in a MAAS environment you will need to update to the latest ILO firmware (greater than version 2.30).

If you are using ILO 2.20 or older, you are not affected by this issue. Please refer to HP for more information on updating ILO firmware.
