New HP ProLiant Firmware ISO 12-2015


Recommended Posts

The SPP (HP Service Pack ProLiant) is the easiest way, load the SPP ISO in the Virtual DVD in iLO4 and restart/set boot order to the DVD/ so that the DVD runs and it will automatically update all your firmware.

Installation instructions

There are two methods for using the Service Pack for ProLiant to update your ProLiant servers:

-    Online mode - Runs on a Windows or Linux hosted operating system
-    Offline mode - Server is booted to the ISO

  • Automatic mode - Firmware components will be updated without interaction

  • Interactive mode - Follow the onscreen steps to update firmware components

     To initiate deployment in Interactive mode:

    Run the launch_hpsum.bat (Windows) or launch_hpsum.sh (Linux) script, which is found in the root of the ISO.

    Automatic mode will by default run firmware update without any user interaction after sitting 30 seconds at the menu screen when an SPP ISO image is used to boot the server.

    Booting the SPP from iLO virtual media is only supported in Automatic Firmware Update mode. Users attempting this in any other mode may experience hangs from connection timeouts, difficulties updating iLO firmware, and mouse syncing issues.

    Note: If you install a software from the SPP and then install a Microsoft Windows operating system Service Pack or other operating system updates, HP recommends reinstalling the software from the SPP.

I ran SPP on the ML10v2 but it's the same exact process for the MS http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/10417-using-spp-to-update-firmware-and-load-ssa-on-my-ml10v2/


And right after I installed my OS I ran SPP inside my S2012R2 and updated everything http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/10440-right-after-installing-server-2012r2-i-ran-spp/

How do you update with ESXi 6u1? Can you boot to USB and run the update from there? Or do you need to execute the Linux script via the ESXi shell?
