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


Installation:

To update firmware from Linux operating system on target server:

Updating firmware by installing the rpm:

  • Install the firmware rpm using the command:  rpm -ivh <rpm_filename>.  This extracts the contents of the rpm to the '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu' location.
  • The CP<nnnnnn>.scexe script is located in the 'scexe-compat' folder. The actual name of the 'firmware-hdd-<xxxxxxxxxx>-*' folder is based on the version of the rpm installed in the first step above.  
  • To install firmware, you can execute ONE of the following commands:
    • ./CP<nnnnnn>.scexe in the '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/scexe-compat' location (OR)
    • ./setup in the '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/firmware-hdd-<xxxxxxxxxx>-*' location
  • The results of the firmware upgrade are saved to the Component.log file, located in the /var/cpq/ directory.
  • To uninstall the rpm, run the command: rpm -e <rpm_package_name>, which is the rpm filename without the '.rpm' extension.

Updating firmware without installing the rpm:

  • Extract the contents of the rpm using the command: rpm2cpio <rpm_filename>.rpm | cpio -id.  This extracts the contents of the rpm to 'usr' folder in the current directory.
  • Navigate to the 'usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/firmware-hdd-<xxxxxxxxxx>-*' location and run ./setup to update the firmware. The actual name of the 'firmware-hdd-<xxxxxxxxxx>-*' folder is based on the version of the rpm installed in the step above.
  • The results of the firmware upgrade are saved to the Component.log file, located in the /var/cpq/ directory.

Additional Information:

Installing the firmware rpm package (rpm -ivh) does not update the firmware.  It merely extracts the rpm content to the local system. Updating the firmware on the local system requires following the above outlined steps.

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

Offline:

  • Place the Service Pack for ProLiant on a USB key using the USB Key Utility for Windows.
  • Place the desired firmware to be updated in the directory, /packages on the USB key.
  • Boot from the newly created Service Pack for Proliant USB key.
  • Follow Smart Update Manager steps to complete firmware update.

Online:

  • Login as root. (You must be root in order to apply the ROM update.)
  • Place the desired firmware to be updated in the directory, /packages.
  • Run launch_sum.sh script which is found in the root of the ISO.

Follow the instructions on the screen.
