Recommended - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.
OBSOLETE - OV-URC Version 1.11 is NO LONGER SUPPORTED BY HPE and is therefore NO LONGER AVAILABLE for download. The current replacement version is always available at https://www.hpe.com/support/ov-urc . Click the "Obtain software" link to access the current version.
Before you perform an HPE OneView appliance update, the intended procedure is as follows:
1. Download and extract the latest version of the utility on a client system.
2. If the client system does not already have the appliance certificate imported, import the appliance certificate on the client system (one time operation).
3. Run the latest version of the checker before performing an appliance update.
4. Review the results and address any issues identified before performing the update.
Before running the checker, validate that you are running the latest version by checking the HPE Support Center (HPESC) website and do the following steps:
- Enter HPE OneView in the search field and click search icon or press enter key.
- Select HPE OneView from the search results to open the HPESC Product Support page for HPE OneView.
- The latest version of HPE OneView Update Readiness Checker should display on this HPESC Product Support page.
The Update Readiness Checker is executed on a client system outside the HPE OneView appliance and is supported on Windows and Linux platforms.
- The checker is supported with HPE OneView version 4.20 and newer on Synergy Composer and VM appliances.
- Update Readiness Checker is not supported with HPE Image Streamer appliances.
Running the Checker
Run the checker using the following:
ov-urc -ovHostname <oneview appliance hostname or IP address> -username <username>
There are additional options available, including arguments to specify a directory service domain or acknowledge the OneView login message as needed. Use the -help argument to list details for all the options available. E.g. ov-urc -help
The results are displayed in the console and saved in a file named 'ov-urc.log'. The results are also logged via a OneView task that can be viewed in the Activity view in the UI.
Only issues that require attention/remediation will be noted in the output. Review the output results and take the appropriate actions as outlined in any recommendations listed.
