Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

USB Key - HPQUSB.exe - Windows-based utility to locally partition, format and copy necessary files to a USB flash media device (e.g. HP Drive Key) through the Windows environment. The created USB flash media device is made bootable and ready to locally restore and/or update the firmware.

1. Obtain a USB Key media.

2. Download the Enhanced SoftPaq to a directory on a system running Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Microsoft Windows XP, or Microsoft Windows Vista and change to that directory.

3. From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded SoftPaq file: Simply double click on the SPxxxxx file and follow the installation wizard to complete the Enhanced SoftPaq installation process. At the end of a successful installation of the Enhanced SoftPaq a web page will automatically appear to provide you with the different methods for restoring and/or upgrading the firmware on the system.

4. After the USB Key is created, you may delete the downloaded file if you wish.

5. Insert this USB Key into the USB Key port of the system to be updated and power the system on.

and power the system on.

Programming the LO100 firmware may take up to ten minutes to complete on some servers before the "restart server" message is displayed. When the server is restarted, it may take up to an additional seven minutes during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) for the System BIOS to perform the SDR update process and for the LO100 re-initialization to complete. Do NOT interrupt this programming process!

Firmware Dependencies:

None

Problems Fixed:

Resolved an issue that always caused a redundancy lost message at bootup on systems that supported redundant power supplies or fans but did not have redundant power supplies or fans installed.

Resolved an issue with DCMI compliance by no longer indicating power management capable on hardware without power management capabilities.

Resolved an issue with the advanced license demo keys correctly displaying the days remaining when close to expiration.

Resolved a rare factory flash issue that could result in corrupting the BMC firmware during the flash. This issue has only been observed in rare circumstances during the manufacturing process.

Resolved an issue with systems capable of supporting redundant fans or power supplies, which could result in a web summary page health indication or IPMI chassis status indicating a failure when a redundant fan or power supply is not installed.

Resolved a web interface issue where the MAC address was not being accepted correctly in the PEF configuration webpage.

Resolved a problem where the -h and -x options at the end of a CLP Load command were not processed.

Resolved a remote graphical console issue for Red Hat 5 for an unsupported graphics mode that prevented viewing the remote OS boot process.

Resolved an issue that prevented the remote graphical console feature from starting when using SSL.

Known Issues:

None
Enhancements

For greater clarity, the following changes were made to the web sensor page:
        Yellow indicators are used for critical thresholds and red indicators for non-recoverable events.
