hpacucli on esxi 5.5 - no controllers detected

Blog Category:

After upgrading a Proliant DL360 Gen8 ESXi host from vSphere 5.1 to vSphere 5.5, I noticed that the hpacucli command no longer worked. Instead of providing the usual output, it failed to detect the controllers:

~ # /opt/hp/hpacucli/bin/hpacucli ctrl all show status
Error: No controllers detected.

The solution is quite simple, instead of using hpacucli, use hpssacli instead:

~ # /opt/hp/hpssacli/bin/hpssacli ctrl all show status
Smart Array P420i in Slot 0 (Embedded)
   Controller Status: OK
   Cache Status: Temporarily Disabled
   Battery/Capacitor Status: Recharging
