Prerequisites:

Please consult SPOCK for a list of supported configurations available at the following link:

http://www.hpe.com/storage/spock/

The HPE supplied QLogic driver and enablement kit must be installed prior to this firmware component being identified by HP SUM for deployment. The software is available in the Service Pack for ProLiant 2016.10.0, which is available at http://www.hpe.com/servers/spp/download:

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86) FCoE/FC Driver Kit for HPE Qlogic CNAs, HBAs and mezzanine HBAs, version 8.07.00.34.11.3-k

  • HPE Fibre Channel Enablement Kit for Linux - QLogic, version 6.0.0.0-2

 


To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with this SHA-256 Checksum value:

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


Installation:

Firmware installation is a two-step process.  Install the firmware installation tool rpm, then execute the installed tool to update the firmware.
 
1. Install the firmware installation tool:  rpm -Uhv <rpm_package_name>.rpm  This extracts the firmware installation tool to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu (64-bit systems) or /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu (32-bit systems) in an hp-firmware-* folder.
 
2. cd to the appropriate location for your system, and update the firmware by executing ./.hpsetup
 
When the firmware installation completes, you may remove the firmware installation tool from your system using the rpm -e command.
 

NOTE: During the flash operation, the message "No Adapter Found!" may appear in the logs. These messages do not indicate a problem with the firmware flash operation and may be ignored.
