Fixes
  • Fixed missing logging of correctable memory errors to the Windows Event Log on systems that use processor/memory module numbering.
  • Corrected a potential Windows STOP 0x9F bugcheck that could occur if the system is shut down while the driver is resetting the iLO 2 interface.
Enhancements
Enhanced component-level logging has been implemented in the Smart Component installer. The generated log file will be located on the target system in the %SystemRoot%\cpqsystem\log directory under the name CPQSETUP.LOG.
