Overview

Insight Management media includes HP Insight Management products to help you create the best run server infrastructure.

Insight Management uses an integrated installer located on Insight Management DVD #1 to deploy, configure, integrate, and update core HP management software quickly and accurately. This wizard-based installer allows you to predefine installation and configuration preferences for HP management software, including access credentials, performance settings and discovery parameters, and then install all components as a single integrated process that requires minimal intervention.
