For more information please refer to the HP Smart Update Manager User Guide or the "CLIHelp.txt" file in the extracted folder. Note that the CLI does not support the "Upload but Do Not Activate" option which is available only in the GUI mode.

B. Installing the Firmware Components using HP SUM - Graphical User Mode

  1. Once started, HP SUM displays a startup screen showing the version and then displays the “Source Selections” screen.
  2. Choose – define Repositories you want to be considered for updating.
    1. The “Source Selections” screen allows the user to choose a directory (repository) where the firmware components are located. The directory to which the bundle is extracted is the default location.
      NOTE:The option "Check ftp.hp.com" will enable HP SUM to check and download latest software updates available online on hp.com. However, this feature is currently not supported for HP Integrity Servers.
    2. Select the "Start Inventory" button to proceed to the Inventory Progress screen.
    3. The Inventory Progress screen displays while the HP SUM builds an inventory of available updates in the repository. Once this check completes, HP SUM shows the "Select Installation Host" screen.
  3. Define - Select Host: i.e., target devices you want to update.
    1. The "Select Installation Host" screen enables you to choose a host (target) for component installation.
    2. Select "Remote Host or Group" radio button. Note: “Local Host" is not applicable for installing the firmware updates included in this bundle.
    3. Select the “Manage Hosts” button to enter hosts to be updated. Valid hosts for this bundle include Onboard Administrators and the iLO-3 MP of the HP Integrity BL8x0c i2 servers.
    4. Select the “Add Host” button and begin entering the information for one or more hosts by inputting either DNS Name or IP Address or Range of IP Addresses.
      • To update a server and ILO firmware, enter the iLO-3 MP IP or DNS name.
    5. Descriptions of each of these host entries could be entered by the user to easily identify the host in current or successive sessions of HP SUM.
    6. Use the Manage Group button if you want to group one or more hosts.
    7. Select the hosts and/or groups where you want to install the firmware components and click “Next” button on the bottom-right corner of the screen.
    8. HP SUM then requests credential details for each selected Host.
      NOTE: HP SUM does not recommend including more than 16 hosts in a group.
  4. Enter Credentials
    1. Each host (i.e., target) will require credential details.
      NOTE: The option “Use current credential (requires an existing trust relationship with the host)” when selected will use the credential of the current user credential to login to the remote host which is not applicable for Integrity rx2800-i2 blades
    2. HP SUM contacts the host to validate the credential details one at a time for each host.
    3. In the next screen, HP SUM runs a discovery routine that determines which firmware components are already installed on the remote host.
  5. Select what you want to install.
    1. Next screen provides the bundle filter options. The current bundle is automatically selected by HP SUM. The bundle filter options are enabled by selecting the checkbox against the current bundle.
    2. The bundle filter options are:
      • ALLOW NON BUNDLE VERSIONS: Selecting this option allows HP SUM to include smart components having different versions of components in the current bundle. Example: A smart component for OA containing a later version of firmware.
      • ALLOW NON-BUNDLE PRODUCTS: Selecting this option allows HP SUM to include smart components of product which are not defined in the current bundle. Example: A smart component for Virtual Connect firmware update.
      • FORCE ALL BUNDLE UPDATES: Sets the Force Update flag for all smart components.
    3. Click “Ok” button to proceed to the next screen where HP SUM displays the installed firmware versions versus what is included in the bundle. You can select firmware components you need to update.
    4. HP SUM displays firmware item to be installed on the hosts.
    5. For more details and component level granularity select the item and click the "View Host" button.
      NOTE: If firmware is latest or already up-to-date version, it would show "Nothing-to-Install". User can override and choose to perform force reinstallation or downgrading the firmware by clicking the "Installation Option" and checking “Force Install” option.
      NOTE: System firmware update supports delay activation - where the new firmware gets flashed on the ROM but activated only when you will reboot the system at a convenient time. This option can be selected by clicking the "Configure Now" and then selecting "Upload but Do Not Activate" checkbox. The default setting is that the system will shutdown and reboot.
    6. Repeat the above steps 4-5 for all firmware components listed, until HP SUM displays “Ready” against each listed items to be installed.
  6. Launch the update - Install
    1. Proceed with installation of the selected firmware on the selected hosts by clicking the "Install" button on the bottom-right corner of the screen.
    2. If the “Upload and Activate” option is selected either by taking the default or explicitly selecting it, an option dialog will pop up with the request

      “The Integrity Server will REBOOT during the firmware update process in order to activate the new system firmware.
      Press OK to continue update, or Cancel to return to making selections."

      Select the appropriate button. HP SUM may take up to 45 minutes to complete the firmware update on a remote host.
    3. HP SUM displays the progress of the firmware update on the local host.
    4. Please do not interrupt HP SUM until it completes the firmware installations on all remote hosts.
    5. When the update completes, HP SUM displays success message (or failure message in case of firmware update failure) for each host.
    6. HP SUM Installation Logs are located in “/var/hp/log/” folder on the local Linux system.
    7. HP SUM Debug Logs are located in “/tmp/hp_sum/” folder on the local Linux system. See the HP Smart Update Manager User Guide for more information on the debug files.

KNOWN FIRMWARE ISSUES:

  • When using VT220-8 Terminal Emulation for the Serial Port, SFW boot may ASSERT when the SFW Boot Manager Screen is displayed. An event will be logged. The following output will be displayed on the SFW console, mixed in with the Boot Manager Menus: ASSERT ...\Universal\Console\TerminalDxe \TerminalConIn.c(1595): ((BOOLEAN)(0==1))
  • While the system is at the EFI Shell or the OS is running, SFW will not report if any of the QPI links drop lanes and become degraded (functional, but with less lanes). SFW will detect QPI links with dropped lanes and send events only during SFW boot. Possible degraded OS performance (as time elapses after OS boot) due to increased memory, CPU, and I/O access times.
  • Due to an Intel PAL (PAL4.28) problem, Processor Thermal Events CMC (Correctable Machine Check) may not be handled correctly, resulting in a System MCA with a corrected MCA logged by System Firmware.
  • EFI reconnect -r does not complete and return to EFI shell prompt. The reconnect -r command may take up to 25 minutes to complete. In some cases it may never complete. A hang of 12 minutes is seen during the command. Therefore the normal completion time for this command would be about 10-12 minutes.
  • Unable to login to web with empty user name, password when sec override is enabled.
  • If the Windows OS initiates a Global MCA while the OS is running, the system will not display a blue screen.
  • rx2800 i2 server with the HP Integrity VM Host application may cause the supported HPVM guests to panic after this firmware update. See the HP-UX Errata for HP Integrity rx2800 i2 for a list of required HPVM Host patches.

KNOWN INSTALLATION ISSUES:

  • Sometimes HP SUM may appear to hang during firmware update on HP Integrity rx2800 i2 servers. The user needs to wait for another 30 minutes and then restart HP SUM if update has not been completed. To reduce the possibility of this occurring, update the OA firmware before or after updating the other firmware components in the bundle.
  • The "FORCE ALL BUNDLE UPDATES" option on the “Select Bundle Filter” screen does not set the "force install" flag for all firmware components in the bundle. The user can choose to perform force installation for every individual firmware component by selecting the "Installation Option" for the firmware component and checking the “Force Install” option.

  • Critical: As the result of auto negotiation failure, the connection between LOM and ProCurve 6120XG may link up at 1Gbps instead of 10Gbps. This occurs intermittently (as often as once in 10 retries) after executing "Reset Server blade #" from the OA CLI.
    Affected Products - All BE3 based Cards and LOMs. This is also seen with 10G passthrough Interconnect module.
  • Boot failure might be seen after running commands "reconnect -r", "map -r" commands at EFi environment.
  • Boot from SAN intermittently fails during EFI bootstrap of a FCoE device that is busy.
  • FCOE EFI version truncated in VPD data that is displayed by ODE-FCFUPDATE tool at EFI.
  • On HP-UX the fcoc port driver state is displayed as AUTHENTICATION/DISCOVERY when fcocutil command is run to check the port information

 Fixes in NIC EFI driver 2.22.a1 (from 2.21.ac):

  • Reset to Defaults restores wrong power configuration. Reset to Default is issued from Device Manager->Emulex 10G NIC-> R/r or Erase Configuration;
    Symptom - Restoring the defaults shows an HP unsupported option: MultiChannel Option
Enhancements

iLO 1.58.01:

  • Users can now configure a security banner message to be displayed in the iLO login screen.

  • iLO now enables users to configure an idle session timeout for web based user interface.

  • An option is now provided in Integrity iLO3 to "Enforce AES/3DES" ciphers for network encryption.

  • Users are now able to create a custom CSR (Certificate Signing request) and to import a third party signed SSL certificate into iLO for secure iLO webGUI access.

  • Improved console performance from iLO version 1.56.02

    Note: For more information on these enhancements, refer to the latest HP Integrity iLO 3 Operations Guide

SAS 6.22 (from 5.78):

  • The maximum boot disk size supported with the LVM boot layout is enhanced from 2TB to 16TB with the release of fw version 6.22 and HP-UX B.11.31.1303

  • HBA/RAID mode toggle support is now available within ORCA. (Mode Toggle only supported for P410i controllers)

SAS FW 6.42 (p411, p711m):

  • Added support for HP MSA 2040 Storage (supported with p411 and p711m only)

iLO 1.55.02:

  • Fixed a security vulnerability issue that exists in HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO 3) versions 1.53.02 and lower for HP rx2800 i2. The vulnerability could be remotely exploited resulting in disclosure of information.  See SSRT100934 for more details.
  • When the serial port MUX is set to “Persistent AUX” mode and the server is A/C power cycled, the serial port MUX will retain the “persistent AUX” mode setting and will not reset to “iLO” mode.
  • The severity of the events “VOLTAGE_FAULT and VOLTAGE_LOW_CRITICAL” have been increased so that power supply events in SFM such as  "power supply failed or disconnected" and "power supply AC lost" will now be reported in HP-UX syslog for easier monitoring.
  • Fixed an issue where an idle SSH session to iLO3 from a PUTTY client may freeze or may get disconnected with an error message “Incoming packet was garbled on decryption”.
  • SSH connection to iLO from an OpenSSH 5.9 client will now work even when a reduced list of key-exchange algorithm is not indicated.
  • IPMI chassis status now properly reflects the sensor status when cover is off or after a fan failure.
  • MP-iLO’s 15 minute auto-logoff no longer truncates a V-media Create ISO Image.
  • Fixed an issue where specific systems would very rarely hang with the "BOOT_NOT_DETECTED" error after an A/C power cycle.
SFW 1.95:  
  • Fixed an issue where the execution of the SetTime firmware call might cause short system hangs of 12.75 seconds. Occasionally longer system hangs were observed. The problem may cause affected servers running in a Serviceguard cluster configuration with member timeout values slightly higher than the delay to fail with a Serviceguard INIT due to expiration of the Serviceguard safety timer. Note: other third party clustering products are affected by this issue too.
  • Fixed an issue where a failed CPU socket would not get de-configured, causing the system to hang and not boot to EFI shell, or to continuously reboot, with the error "BOOT_CPU_LATE_SELF_TEST_FAIL".
Boot Code 6.2.25 (from 6.2.21) for AM225A/AM232A/AM233A:
  • In some cases, only 2 PCI functions are exposed in multi-function mode.
 HBA FC FW version 2.02x2 (from 2.00a4) for AT094A, AH402A, AH403A:
  • I/O “illegal frames received” errors may be reported intermittently by FC disks linked through an 8Gb HP/Emulex FC card if a disk reset is performed during heavy I/O load.
Enhancements

UEFI Driver 5.2.59 (from 5.2.58) for AM225A, AM232A, AM233A:

  •  Added Dynamic Network detection support

FIXES:

SFW 1.93:

  • Duplicate SFM event 100819 might be displayed after replacing a CPU and booting a system.
  • In presence of a 2-slot I/O riser card, HP-UX ioscan might display an extra slot or syslog might show ACPI warnings similar to "could not find bd for ACPI handle".
  • System might take many extra minutes to boot to EFI if unreadable media is in DVD drive.
iLO-3 1.54.03:
  • Added functionality to disable iLO reset request from the FPGA while firmware is being programmed.
  • iLO serial task errors might cause an iLO hang.
  • iLO internal task priority changed to better insure that the watchdog timer task will reset iLO when necessary.
  • The virtual keyboard and mouse might stop working after an MP reset with OpenVMS.
FPGA 2.02:
  • An iLO firmware hang might prevent reset via the iLO physical presence button; a fifteen (15) second button hold now generates a hardware reset signal regardless of iLO firmware state.

      • To update a server and ILO firmware, enter the iLO-3 MP IP or DNS name.
    5. Descriptions of each of these host entries could be entered by the user to easily identify the host in current or successive sessions of HP SUM.
    6. Use the Manage Group button if you want to group one or more hosts.
    7. Select the hosts and/or groups where you want to install the firmware components and click “Next” button on the bottom-right corner of the screen.
    8. HP SUM then requests credential details for each selected Host.
      NOTE: HP SUM does not recommend including more than 16 hosts in a group.
  4. Enter Credentials
    1. Each host (i.e., target) will require credential details.
      NOTE: The option “Use current credential (requires an existing trust relationship with the host)” when selected will use the credential of the current user credential to login to the remote host which is not applicable for Integrity rx2800-i2 blades
    2. HP SUM contacts the host to validate the credential details one at a time for each host.
    3. In the next screen, HP SUM runs a discovery routine that determines which firmware components are already installed on the remote host.
  5. Select what you want to install.
    1. Next screen provides the bundle filter options. The current bundle is automatically selected by HP SUM. The bundle filter options are enabled by selecting the checkbox against the current bundle.
    2. The bundle filter options are:

PRODUCT MODEL(S):
HP Integrity rx2800 i2 Server

OPERATING SYSTEMS:
HP-UX 11i v3 OE Update Release for September 2010 (and later OE Releases)
Microsoft Windows server 2008 R2
OpenVMS 8.4

LANGUAGES:
International English

KNOWN FIRMWARE ISSUES:

  • When using VT220-8 Terminal Emulation for the Serial Port, SFW boot may ASSERT when the SFW Boot Manager Screen is displayed. An event will be logged. The following output will be displayed on the SFW console, mixed in with the Boot Manager Menus: ASSERT ...\Universal\Console\TerminalDxe \TerminalConIn.c(1595): ((BOOLEAN)(0==1))
  • While the system is at the EFI Shell or the OS is running, SFW will not report if any of the QPI links drop lanes and become degraded (functional, but with less lanes). SFW will detect QPI links with dropped lanes and send events only during SFW boot. Possible degraded OS performance (as time elapses after OS boot) due to increased memory, CPU, and I/O access times.
  • Due to an Intel PAL (PAL4.28) problem, Processor Thermal Events CMC (Correctable Machine Check) may not be handled correctly, resulting in a System MCA with a corrected MCA logged by System Firmware.
  • EFI reconnect -r does not complete and return to EFI shell prompt. The reconnect -r command may take up to 25 minutes to complete. In some cases it may never complete. A hang of 12 minutes is seen during the command. Therefore the normal completion time for this command would be about 10-12 minutes.
  • Unable to login to web with empty user name, password when sec override is enabled.
  • If the Windows OS initiates a Global MCA while the OS is running, the system will not display a blue screen.
  • rx2800 i2 server with the HP Integrity VM Host application may cause the supported HPVM guests to panic after this firmware update. See the HP-UX Errata for HP Integrity rx2800 i2 for a list of required HPVM Host patches.

KNOWN INSTALLATION ISSUES:

  • Sometimes HP SUM may appear to hang during firmware update on HP Integrity rx2800 i2 servers. The user needs to wait for another 30 minutes and then restart HP SUM if update has not been completed. To reduce the possibility of this occurring, update the OA firmware before or after updating the other firmware components in the bundle.
  • The "FORCE ALL BUNDLE UPDATES" option on the “Select Bundle Filter” screen does not set the "force install" flag for all firmware components in the bundle. The user can choose to perform force installation for every individual firmware component by selecting the "Installation Option" for the firmware component and checking the “Force Install” option.

  • Fixed an issue where the “String buffer too small” error message could be displayed during a network installation of the server, eventually leading to a system panic.
  • Improved boot stability by fixing several potential occurrences of MCAs during boot.
  • Health state does not return to 'OK' when temperature goes from Critical to OK. In order to clear this error a system power cycle was required.
  • Fixed an issue in which the DIMM Slot location for DIMM errors was being reported as decimal numbers when it should have been reported as hexadecimal numbers.
  • An issue in which LDAP did not expect the format user@domain.com has been fixed in the iLO web GUI. The problem still exists in the iLO CLI. The work around is to configure the LDAP server to use an alternative format.
  • The System Health Page in the iLO Web GUI now displays temperatures appropriately.
  • An issue in which the VMEDIA connections event was logged without an IP address has been fixed.
  • An issue with the rare loss of an EFI configuration change has been addressed.

Version:27 (31 Mar 2016)
Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Recommended - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.


Fixes in iLO 1.58.01:

  • Addressed the OpenSSL Poodle (Padding Oracle on Downgraded Legacy Encryption) vulnerability CVE-2014-3566 in iLO. Note: SSLv3 based connections to iLO webGUI are now disabled.

  • Fixed SSL/TLS MITM vulnerability CVE-2014-0224

  • Users can now successfully access the iLO3 GUI using Firefox version 23 or above.

  • iLO will now allow two simultaneous telnet connection attempts and five simultaneous SSH connection attempts.

  • A Telnet session to iLO would rarely hang during an operation such as FPL dump where continuous stream of data was being sent by iLO to the client. This is now fixed.

  • Fixed an issue where system firmware would occasionally de-configure one or more DIMMs reporting DIMM SPD Checksum errors due to a timeout during AC power cycle of the system.

  • Fixed an issue where iLO sometimes displayed incorrect power input voltage value in the Power Meter Readings page.

  • Disabled export cipher encryption in iLO3.

Fixes in SFW 1.96 

  • In an HP Virtual Machine (HPVM) environment, the OS would rarely fail to capture CMC and MCA error logs. This is now fixed.
  • A server containing a PCI card which does not support PCI extended capability would sometimes hang without any error message while handling an MCA. This is now fixed.

Fixes in SAS FW 6.42 (from 6.22):    

  • Resolved an issue where, after doing a mode toggle at EFI ORCA, the controller name would not be displayed when running the command: “reconnect –r”
  • Resolved an issue where P411 (HBA mode) in Multi Initiator configuration, connected to share disk,  failed to boot from primary path at EFI
  • Added a new POST message 1813 to indicate bad or failed battery charge circuit
  • No longer display a POST error message 1805 “Cache Module Super–Cap is not installed” when the controller is configured to work without super-capacitors.

Fixes in SAS FW 6.22 (from version 5.78):

  • HP-UX boot may fail with READ Error (elf_load) if boot volume is built on SAS Logical Volume larger than 2TB
  • On rare occasions during power-up of an HP DS2200sb, the expander backplane would be unresponsive and the attached Smart Array Controller would not be allowed to discover attached drives.
  • The training of the DDR2 DIMMs has been improved in order to prevent the rare occasions when 1783 POST error messages displays followed by an unresponsive controller.
  • Protection has been added to prevent potential Smart Array controller hangs under rare conditions when hot-adding hard drives.
  • The Open Connection timeout was reduced to 900 microseconds so that SAS connections terminate gracefully and data transfer stalls are prevented.
  • The Smart Array controller would not connect to hard drives within 20ms under heavy stress.

Fixes in Intel EFI version 4.3.02 for rx2800 i2 and i4 LOM (from 4.3.01):

  • NIC EFI driver update was failing on some cards shipped with a flash memory chip (Atmel 25DF041A) that did not support the EFI driver. EFI driver version 4.3.02 fixes this issue.

Fixes in Emulex Firmware 4.9.416.12 (from 4.2.401.2212)

  • Critical/Serious Defects

    • When ISL (Inter-Switch Link) is disabled to remote site, local storage access is also lost

    • IOCXGBE: Pause frame storm seen under DEAD state condition

  • Medium/Low Defects

    • IOCXGBE:  Flow control behavior is not functioning as expected 

    • Link status is shown as DOWN in HP-UX & HII (Human Interface Infrastructure) though the interface is UP in OA

Fixes in Emulex firmware 4.2.401.2212 (from 4.1.450.14):

  • Critical: As the result of auto negotiation failure, the connection between LOM and ProCurve 6120XG may link up at 1Gbps instead of 10Gbps. This occurs intermittently (as often as once in 10 retries) after executing "Reset Server blade #" from the OA CLI.
    Affected Products - All BE3 based Cards and LOMs. This is also seen with 10G passthrough Interconnect module.
  • Boot failure might be seen after running commands "reconnect -r", "map -r" commands at EFi environment.
  • Boot from SAN intermittently fails during EFI bootstrap of a FCoE device that is busy.
  • FCOE EFI version truncated in VPD data that is displayed by ODE-FCFUPDATE tool at EFI.
  • On HP-UX the fcoc port driver state is displayed as AUTHENTICATION/DISCOVERY when fcocutil command is run to check the port information

 Fixes in NIC EFI driver 2.22.a1 (from 2.21.ac):

  • Reset to Defaults restores wrong power configuration. Reset to Default is issued from Device Manager->Emulex 10G NIC-> R/r or Erase Configuration;

iLO 1.55.02:

  • Fixed a security vulnerability issue that exists in HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO 3) versions 1.53.02 and lower for HP rx2800 i2. The vulnerability could be remotely exploited resulting in disclosure of information.  See SSRT100934 for more details.
  • When the serial port MUX is set to “Persistent AUX” mode and the server is A/C power cycled, the serial port MUX will retain the “persistent AUX” mode setting and will not reset to “iLO” mode.
  • The severity of the events “VOLTAGE_FAULT and VOLTAGE_LOW_CRITICAL” have been increased so that power supply events in SFM such as  "power supply failed or disconnected" and "power supply AC lost" will now be reported in HP-UX syslog for easier monitoring.
  • Fixed an issue where an idle SSH session to iLO3 from a PUTTY client may freeze or may get disconnected with an error message “Incoming packet was garbled on decryption”.
  • SSH connection to iLO from an OpenSSH 5.9 client will now work even when a reduced list of key-exchange algorithm is not indicated.
  • IPMI chassis status now properly reflects the sensor status when cover is off or after a fan failure.
  • MP-iLO’s 15 minute auto-logoff no longer truncates a V-media Create ISO Image.
  • Fixed an issue where specific systems would very rarely hang with the "BOOT_NOT_DETECTED" error after an A/C power cycle.
SFW 1.95:  
  • Fixed an issue where the execution of the SetTime firmware call might cause short system hangs of 12.75 seconds. Occasionally longer system hangs were observed. The problem may cause affected servers running in a Serviceguard cluster configuration with member timeout values slightly higher than the delay to fail with a Serviceguard INIT due to expiration of the Serviceguard safety timer. Note: other third party clustering products are affected by this issue too.
  • Fixed an issue where a failed CPU socket would not get de-configured, causing the system to hang and not boot to EFI shell, or to continuously reboot, with the error "BOOT_CPU_LATE_SELF_TEST_FAIL".
Boot Code 6.2.25 (from 6.2.21) for AM225A/AM232A/AM233A:
  • In some cases, only 2 PCI functions are exposed in multi-function mode.
 HBA FC FW version 2.02x2 (from 2.00a4) for AT094A, AH402A, AH403A:
  • I/O “illegal frames received” errors may be reported intermittently by FC disks linked through an 8Gb HP/Emulex FC card if a disk reset is performed during heavy I/O load.
Enhancements

UEFI Driver 5.2.59 (from 5.2.58) for AM225A, AM232A, AM233A:

  •  Added Dynamic Network detection support

FIXES:

SFW 1.93:

  • Duplicate SFM event 100819 might be displayed after replacing a CPU and booting a system.
  • In presence of a 2-slot I/O riser card, HP-UX ioscan might display an extra slot or syslog might show ACPI warnings similar to "could not find bd for ACPI handle".
  • System might take many extra minutes to boot to EFI if unreadable media is in DVD drive.
iLO-3 1.54.03:
  • Added functionality to disable iLO reset request from the FPGA while firmware is being programmed.
  • iLO serial task errors might cause an iLO hang.
  • iLO internal task priority changed to better insure that the watchdog timer task will reset iLO when necessary.
  • The virtual keyboard and mouse might stop working after an MP reset with OpenVMS.
FPGA 2.02:
  • An iLO firmware hang might prevent reset via the iLO physical presence button; a fifteen (15) second button hold now generates a hardware reset signal regardless of iLO firmware state.

  • EFI shell extended characters were forced to an off state when entering the boot manager and restored to their previous state when returning to the shell
  • The level 5 IODISC_RP_LINK_TRAIN_ERR event could be erroneously displayed and cause HP-UX to fail to discover the IPMI device
  • Certain events were not sent while in virtual mode during system OS shutdown
  • A failed DIMM would no longer show as de-allocated after reboot
  • The SM BUS speed was set too high during an MCA, potentially leading to nested MCAs
  • Corrected memory interleaving problem causing MCA in HP rx2800 i2 server with 8x16GB and 4x4GB DIMMs
iLO
  • A rare issue occurred in which disconnecting Web SSL users from the Web interface on the "Active Users" tab of the "Status Summary Page" could disallow subsequent web connections. This could be remedied by resetting iLO from the TUI(Terminal User Interface).
  • The iLO reset command could be performed from the CLI(Command Line Interface) (xd –r) or the GUI while a FW update was in progress.
  • During a FW upgrade, an iLO reset from the iLO GUI was reported to be successful at resetting the iLO although the reset was not successful
  • The iLO command prompt could hang from invalid or missing parameters. This could be remedied by resetting from iLO GUI or using SSH exec "xd -r"
  • iLO GUI "system health" page may not load completely on a fully loaded system.
  • Issues occurred with command line LDAP usage
  • A dropped LAN connection during firmware update could cause a firmware update command or HP SUM command to cease operation. iLO now detects the dropped connection, and reports the error.
  • HP SUM failed to successfully update HP rx2800 i2 server with mixed Firmware versions.
  • iLO TUI(Terminal User Interface) PR command and "power & reset" GUI page would fail if firmware upgrade was in process.
  • The iLO GUI, System Health screen, no longer displays Altitude Eq Temperature because this sensor is NOT a temperature sensor and it did not display correct information.
Enhancements

  • Support for power management from iLO and OS including Advanced Power Capping and Power Regulation
SFW
  • System now generates event for USB over-current condition at EFI
  • Improved the analysis of MCA logs in case of uncorrectable errors by extending data reporting
  • Improved internal tracking of correctable memory errors count on x8 DRAMs

  • Fixed an issue where the “String buffer too small” error message could be displayed during a network installation of the server, eventually leading to a system panic.
  • Improved boot stability by fixing several potential occurrences of MCAs during boot.
  • Health state does not return to 'OK' when temperature goes from Critical to OK. In order to clear this error a system power cycle was required.
  • Fixed an issue in which the DIMM Slot location for DIMM errors was being reported as decimal numbers when it should have been reported as hexadecimal numbers.
  • An issue in which LDAP did not expect the format user@domain.com has been fixed in the iLO web GUI. The problem still exists in the iLO CLI. The work around is to configure the LDAP server to use an alternative format.
  • The System Health Page in the iLO Web GUI now displays temperatures appropriately.
  • An issue in which the VMEDIA connections event was logged without an IP address has been fixed.
  • An issue with the rare loss of an EFI configuration change has been addressed.
  • vMedia performance and reliability has been improved.
  • Error handling/containment/logging has been improved.
  • Fixed iLO3 Web GUI’s System Inventory page [?] Help icon that lead to error.
  • Fatal fan state should now display fatal in the iLO Web GUI instead of warning.
  • Pending firmware state with system power ON will now get cleared when AC power loss is detected.
  • Power Supply failed state is now persistent when system is turned off.
  • iLO Web GUI will no longer show fan units as failed after completion of a pending SFW update.
  • Issue of locator UID status displaying not available after SFW upgrade is now fixed.
  • Issue of empty IO Slots reported as occupied is fixed.
