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


Installation:
To use HP Smart Update Manager from the HP Service Pack for ProLiant:

Offline:

  • SPP Offline mode boots a special Linux OS environment, thus the Linux Smart Component are used, not the VMware Smart Components
Remote Online:
  • Download the appropriate SPP
  • Mount the SPP on a remote server running Windows or Linux that has a network connection to the ESXi host to be updated
  • Run HPSUM
  • Add the ESXi host to be updated as a remote target/node
  • Enter the IP or DNS address of the ESXi host to be updated
  • Enter the ESXi host credentials (root or administrator username and password)
  • Follow HP Smart Update Manager Steps and complete the firmware update.
  • Refer to the SPP Documentation for detailed instructions at: www.hp.com/go/spp
To use HP Insight Control for vCenter :
  • Log in to the vSphere Client.
  • Select a server or cluster in the inventory tree.
  • Click the HP Insight Management tab.
  • Follow Insight Control for vCenter steps to update firmware using a Smart Component
To update firmware from VMware ESXi operating system on target server:
  • Enable Tech Support Mode on the ESXi host.
  • Login as root. (You must be root in order to apply the ROM update.)
  • Place the Smart Component in a temporary directory.
  • From the same directory, execute the Smart Component. For example: ./CPXXXXXX.scexe
  • Follow the directions given by the Smart Component.
  • Disable Tech Support Mode on the ESXi host
  • Reboot your system if you would like the update to take effect immediately.
