Doesn't look like it. I was able to download the iLO and Broadcom update without being logged in. The massive update ISO does require a warranty or support contract though.

How did You update de firmware of B120i?

I don't fiind firmware on HP site.

You don't. The firmware for the b120i is part of the driver that you're loading into your OS. For some reason, the ESXi 5.5 driver still comes with 4.50 whilst the regular Linux and Windows drivers come with 5.00.

 

The Dynamic Smart Array b120i is actually just the regular Intel SATA controller + a fancy driver. This means part of it is kept inside the system firmware and part of it is inside the driver that you install in your OS.
