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


Installation:

To update firmware from Windows operating system on target server:

  • Place the Smart Component in a temporary directory.
  • Double-click on the Smart Component.
  • Follow the directions given by the Smart Component.
  • Reboot your system if you would like the update to take effect immediately.

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

  • Place the desired firmware to be updated in the directory, \<SPP root folder>\packages.
  • Run launch_sum.bat script which is found in the root folder of the SPP.
  • Follow the instructions on the screen.
