Can't update firmware on new Gen8's. HP IP installed old bios and firmware

Hi,

 

So I just purchased 3 HP MicroServer G8, however I have an issue with using HP IP updating service, it seems to be reverting all firmware to the older one (I have fairly new bios on all HP's (mid 2014) and HP IP installed 11/2013).

 

 

How to update firmware on those servers ??? I've tried several times to install new firmware but it keeps installing 2013.11.09, when finished and IP tries to refresh list of updates it just show connection error to HP site..

 

 

 

What should I do ? I already downloaded IP 1.61 but without any luck either.

Now I ended up with old firmware without a way to updating it to the newer version :(

I have tried this DVD but it failed to update bios (still I can see 2013 & mid 2014)

 

How to update bios on those servers (as IP is just installing very old bios from 2013). I have used previously ProLiant DL360 and never had issue with IP :(

When I tried updating using IP, it also installed an old (2013) BIOS on mine.

 

It also "updated" the iLO from version 2.04 to version 2.00

 

Something is seriously messed up there methinks.

I'm not sure what is happening in your IP

 

You can mount HDSum iso image in iLO (or load HDSum on a bootable flash drive OR burn it to a DVD and put in a USB DVD drive) and it will update when it sees the iso at post

Nope, ROM which was reverted by IP on one of MicroServers is from mid 2013, rest is 6/6/14, however I have no idea how to update ROM on machine which I had bad luck to test faulty IP service :(

 

DVD didn't worked, online IP service is proposing only mid 2013 ROM :(
