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


Installation:

Upgrading to HPE Synergy 5.20 on an HPE Synergy Composer (1st Gen)

IMPORTANT:

Before performing an HPE OneView update, Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends you use the HPE OneView Update Readiness Checker. The Update Readiness Checker is provided for HPE OneView users to evaluate the health of their HPE OneView appliance for a set of known conditions before proceeding with an appliance update. To download the checker, go to http://www.hpe.com/support/ov-urc.

IMPORTANT:

Upgrading to HPE OneView version 5.0 (or later) from version 4.10.x will fail if the HPE Synergy 12000 Frame contains HPE Synergy 12Gb SAS Connection Modules with a firmware version prior to 1.5.x.x, and the Check for expiration of leaf certificates option is enabled in HPE OneView (Settings > Security screen). See Customer Advisory a00093866 and the HPE OneView 5.0 and 5.00.00.02 Release Notes for HPE Synergy.

Any HPE OneView 4.20.01 or later can be upgraded to version 5.20.

HPE Synergy Composer upgrade time

Upgrading HPE OneView 5.20 on an HPE Synergy Composer (1st gen) requires more time than earlier releases.

Due to the additional time required to upgrade the HPE Synergy Composers for this release, it is permissible to defer updating HPE Synergy Image Streamer to a separate appliance maintenance window.

Refer to the HPE OneView for Synergy and HPE Synergy Image Streamer release notes for specific update times and general update requirements.
