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:

  • 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.
  • Reboot your system if you would like the update to take effect immediately.
To use HP Smart Update Manager from the HP Service Pack for ProLiant:

Offline:
  • Place the HP Service Pack for ProLiant on a USB key using the HP USB Key Creator Utility.
  • Place the desired firmware to be updated in the directory, /SPP20xxxxx/hp/swpackages on the USB key.
  • Boot from the newly created HP Service Pack for ProLiant USB key.
  • Follow HP Smart Update Manager steps to complete firmware update.
Online:
  • Login as root. (You must be root in order to apply the ROM update.)
