Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is not required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

Start replaces Autorun in online and offline modes.

Users familiar with using Autorun on the Smart Update Firmware Maintenance DVD will notice that it has been replaced with a new browser-based interface known as Start. Start will walk the user through language selection, End User License Agreement (EULA) viewing, and launching HP SUM. The supported browsers for running Start in online mode are:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.0.10 or later
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.1
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.5

Installation instructions

There are two methods for using the Service Pack for ProLiant to update your ProLiant servers:

-    Online mode - Runs on a Windows® or Linux hosted operating system
-    Offline mode - Server is booted to the ISO

  • Automatic mode - Firmware components will be updated without interaction
  • Interactive mode - Follow the onscreen steps to update firmware components

 To initiate deployment in Interactive mode:

  1. Locate Start.html which is found in the root of the ISO
  2. Open the html file in a supported browser
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen

Automatic mode will by default run firmware update without any user interaction after sitting 30 seconds at the menu screen when a SPP DVD or USB Key is inserted to the server.

Booting the SPP DVD from iLO virtual media is only supported in Automatic Firmware Update mode. Users attempting this in any other mode may experience hangs from connection timeouts, difficulties updating iLO firmware, and mouse syncing issues.

Note: If you install a software from the SPP and then install a Microsoft Windows® operating system Service Pack or other operating system updates, HP recommends reinstalling the software from the SPP.

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is not required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

Start replaces Autorun in online and offline modes.

Users familiar with using Autorun on the Smart Update Firmware Maintenance DVD will notice that it has been replaced with a new browser-based interface known as Start. Start will walk the user through language selection, End User License Agreement (EULA) viewing, and launching HP SUM. The supported browsers for running Start in online mode are:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.0.10 or later
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.1
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.5

Installation instructions

There are two methods for using the Service Pack for ProLiant to update your ProLiant servers:

-    Online mode - Runs on a Windows® or Linux hosted operating system
-    Offline mode - Server is booted to the ISO

  • Automatic mode - Firmware components will be updated without interaction
  • Interactive mode - Follow the onscreen steps to update firmware components

 To initiate deployment in Interactive mode:

  1. Locate Start.html which is found in the root of the ISO
  2. Open the html file in a supported browser
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen

Automatic mode will by default run firmware update without any user interaction after sitting 30 seconds at the menu screen when a SPP DVD or USB Key is inserted to the server.

Booting the SPP DVD from iLO virtual media is only supported in Automatic Firmware Update mode. Users attempting this in any other mode may experience hangs from connection timeouts, difficulties updating iLO firmware, and mouse syncing issues.

Note: If you install a software from the SPP and then install a Microsoft Windows® operating system Service Pack or other operating system updates, HP recommends reinstalling the software from the SPP.
