We are using the Hp-Agents continuously on our Servers.
The latest Version with centos-3.3 was no Problem.

Mainly it depends on the used kernel Versions,
because the raid driver modules are not for vanilla kernels, only for official Kernels from Redhat, Suse ...

The only thing you have to do, is to fake the /etc/redhat-release,
because the installer looks for supported Linux Versions.

After Installation you can view your Configuration via firefox.

also you will see alot new processes starting.

I am debating installing CentOS on a new HP DL580 with an MSA1000 SAN.
HP offers drivers that are specific to RHEL and will not install on
other RH distros i.e. RH 9.

Has anyone gotten the HP SupportPack to install under CentOS?
