Newbie here, so please be gentle with me!
I have an 18 month old Gen8 server bought new but now out of warranty, so limited access to HPE updates. My Gen8 has 8Gb memory, Recently added Xeon 1220v2, standard disk controller (122i ) and 4 off 3.5” drives giving 6Tb of storage under storage spaces. OS on SATA HDD sitting in ODD space as recommended on here. I was running Win10 Pro, but after upgrading processor and trying to update drivers with Intelligent Provisioning, I fell foul of the expired warranty. I also lost my printer driver for HP laser jet and my sound drivers (usb connected sound card).
To cut a long and painful journey a bit shorter, I am re-installing Win10 Pro from DVD, with licence key under IP. My question as someone without warranty, but with a copy of the SPP download (ISO?), how do I install the various drivers needed from the SPP and do I need to update the firmware for the Xeon processor, if so how? I read on here that the original 2014 J06 firmware does not have a thermal solution for Xeon processor and ILO shows high temps for some components.
I am reasonable knowledgeable in Windows of old and have Rufus to create bootable usb sticks, but unsure how to get from SPP ISO image as downloaded (871795_001_spp-2017.04.0-SPP2017040.2017_0420.14).
Any help from experienced gurus much appreciated!
As in subject, Service Pack for ProLiant 2018.03.0 (SPP) does not support Microserver Gen 10?
I was checking my MicroServer Gen 8 and I realised it's quite some time I don't apply a Service Pack with all its updates.
Has anyone got a link to the latest available, please?
Here is some new drivers and Firmwares that I have find that are newer then the once that was on the SPP.
The new drivers are
Ethernet Firmware (Only Windows) (EXE-file) Ethernet Driver (Only Windows) (EXE-file) Graphifc Drivers (Only Windows) (EXE-file)
The link also inkludes
Intelligent Provisioning 1.70.63 (All OS) (ISO-File)
If you 'll download and install the Firmware and driver for the Ethernetcard, make sure that you install the Firmware and reboot the server before you update the drivers.
The Intelligent Provisioning update is a bootable ISO-file.
So just mount the file in your iLO remote console and then choose to boot the server from the DVD (mounted ISO-file) then follow the instructions.
You can if you want donwload each file by it self or you can download all of the files in one zip-file.
If you want to download the files in a zip-file just click on the Green link that says "ZIP" at the right on the download site and the server will zip the files for you and start a download for you.
Every file is named like this HPesOwnPacketName_Version_FW/driver.exe everything so you can see the info about the files.
I'll continue to upload the newest drivers and firmwares for our beloved HPe Microsoerver gen8.
Insted of updating my Post's I was just thinking that I could create a new thread for the new SPP.
I did install the new SPP and this following things was updated for me (I have only done the SPP 2017.04 before), If you want the latest updates for iLO you need to download it from HP's webbpage as iLO is only on v 2.50 in this SPP. So if you have only done the SPP 2017.04 I do recommend you to do this one also.
And don't mind that it says Gen9 at the first update, it's the same as for the gen8.
You can download the SPP on this link: HP SPP 2017.07.1
