    Notes:
    HP BladeSystem servers (BL series) utilize the software contained in the HP ProLiant Support Packs (PSPs). PSPs are available on the SmartStart CD.

    ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack (RDP), SmartStart Scripting Toolkit and SmartStart 7.xx deploy BladeSystem servers. SmartStart 7.00 and later provides assisted installation support for ProLiant BL Servers by utilizing the I/O port with an attached USB CD-ROM device.

    SmartStart is not delivered standard with these servers, but can be a useful addition to RDP - the recommended deployment solution for BladeSystem servers. The CD can be used to create a server profile that can easily be copied and redistributed via RDP.

    SmartStart supports the deployment of the ProLiant DL380 G3 Packaged Cluster but does not deploy the full clustering solution. For more information on deploying a full clustering solution, visit the HP ProLiant Clusters page.

        Notes:
        HP BladeSystem servers (BL series) utilize the software contained in the HP ProLiant Support Packs (PSPs). PSPs are available on the SmartStart CD.

        ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack (RDP), SmartStart Scripting Toolkit and SmartStart 7.xx deploy BladeSystem servers. SmartStart 7.00 and later provides assisted installation support for ProLiant BL Servers by utilizing the I/O port with an attached USB CD-ROM device.

        SmartStart is not delivered standard with these servers, but can be a useful addition to RDP - the recommended deployment solution for BladeSystem servers. The CD can be used to create a server profile that can easily be copied and redistributed via RDP.

        SmartStart supports the deployment of the ProLiant DL380 G3 Packaged Cluster but does not deploy the full clustering solution. For more information on deploying a full clustering solution, visit the HP ProLiant Clusters page.

        Beginning with version 8.40 the ProLiant Support Pack (PSP) for LINUX are being updated from using Linux Deployment Utility (LDU) to using HP Smart Update Manager (HPSUM) for Linux to deploy drivers and software.  Overall, the same manageability is present with added flexibility and more features for added convenience and enhanced functionality.
