How to install HP-Linux Management Component Pack (MCP) on Proxmox 7.4

Dec 2, 2020
Hello Forum,

due to a recent memory failure I wanted to install the HP-MCP on a HP-DL380 G7 in order to use hp-health for debugging.
This failed because the install procedure on the MCP-project page is outdated or rather deprecated (
The reasons are:
insecure download page for gpg key and repo (http://)
does not offer a debian project version 11.6 for bulleye
the procedure apt-key add is deprecated
Has anybody a secure procedure how to install the HP-MCP on Proxmox 7.4?
Hello ubu,
Thank you for your reply! Tried to install hp-health, but it didn't work:

# dpkg -i hp-health_10.80-1874.10_amd64.deb

Ok this is a 32 bit program, so on your 64 bit system you need to install 32 bit support to install it

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

After adding i386 architecture, apt-get update failed,
beacuse installed Proxmox 7.4 and Ceph 16.2 do not
support i386 binaries.
So I gave up on this and removed i386-architecture.
I don't want to mess with the system since it is a production node.
Just for the records - Is it generally not advised to run i386-architecture on Proxmox 7?
