Hi Darrell

I did briefly look at the other HP utilities but to be honest I thought it was a bit of an overkill, iLo will report any major failures and installing all those extra packages is bound to come back and bite you, I guess if you was running your own installation of CentOS with Apache / Sendmail / PHP etc it wouldn't be so bad but with all the packages (and their dependencies) that get installed with BlueOnyx it is potentially causing yourself problems by adding extras that could cause conflicts!
Just not worth it for what you gain in my opinion! :-)

Thanks
Rob
