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.

Upgrade Requirement:
Critical - HPE requires users update to this version immediately.

  • Online firmware flashing of drives attached to a Smart Array controller running in Zero Memory (ZM) mode or a ProLiant host bus adapter (HBA) is NOT supported. Only offline firmware flashing of drives is supported for these configurations.
  • Online drive firmware update available for Smart Array Controllers configured in systems running supported Linux, Microsoft Windows, and VMware environments. All other OSes would require an offline update using the Service Pack for ProLiant and Smart Update Manager.
