Technical Tips
1. When updating HP CN1000e and NC550SFP products, use either the OneConnect-flash.iso
or the Elxflash Offline tools. Either method will update the ILO image for the Network
Communications Services Interface (NCSI) side band support. This procedure requires a power
cycle after flashing. This tip does not apply to network cards that are version 4.0.360.15 or later.
2. Before you update your host drivers, update your firmware using the available online tools.
