As of June 2020, what are the latest versions of firmware for HP Microserver Gen8 to be installed on the system itself? Also do any other components have updatable firmware/os-independent software?
So far my list is as follows:
BIOS - J06 (04/04/2019) iLO 4 - v2.73 (11/02/2020) Intelligent Provisioning - v1.71 (20/02/2019)
and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):
Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) - v8.1.0 (21/12/2017) Service Pack for ProLiant (06/11/2017)
Date formated as DD/MM/YYYY.
I believe all the B120i Smart Storage stuff is part of Intelligent Provisioning.
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.
I bought a HP Smart Array P222 Controller for my HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8.
Operating System is ESXI 6.5.
How can I update the P222 Controller firmware using ESXI operating system?
Is this possible?
