     Installation: Install the ZenPack as any other - you still need to enable the monitoring for the device. The below instructions were posted in the forums by jbose, and they at least pass the sniff test.


Go to the specific device (yes, it needs to already be added).
1. From the > Menu select More -> Collector Plugins
2. Remove the zenoss.snmp.Cpu (click the X next to it)
3. Click "Add Fields"
4. Drag and drop all of the "community.snmp.HP*" entries in the right list over into the left list. Note that community.snmp.HPLogicalDiskMap,  community.snmp.HPHardDiskMap and community.snmp.HPExpansionCardMap plugins must be at the end of lists.
5. CLICK SAVE (don't forget this step)
6. From the > Menu select Manage -> Model Device
7. Once it is completed modeling check out the hardware tab for the device, you should see CPUs, Harddrives, Fans, etc. If you don't you may have problems with snmp, so check those settings the usual way.
