HP Smart Storage Admin CLI (
ssacli) installation and usage on Proxmox PVE (6.x)
Why use HP Smart Storage Admin CLI?
You can use
ssacli (smart storage administrator command line interface) tool to manage any of supported HP Smart Array Controllers in your Proxmox host without need to reboot your server to access Smart Storage Administrator in BIOS. That means no host downtime when managing your storage.
CLI is not as convenient as GUI interface provided by BIOS or desktop utilities, but still allows you to fully manage your controller, physical disks and logical drives on the fly with no Proxmox host downtime.
ssacli replaces older
hpssacli, but shares the same syntax and adds support for newer servers and controllers.
