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


Installation:

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

     Offline (
The SPP Offline mode boots a special Linux OS environment, thus the Linux Smart Components are used, not the VMware Smart Components):

  • Place the Service Pack for ProLiant on a USB key using the USB Key Utility for Windows.
  • Place the desired Linux firmware component 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.

     Remote Online:

  • Download the appropriate SPP.
  • Add the component to the SPP.
  • Mount the SPP on a remote server running Windows or Linux that has a network connection to the ESXi host to be updated.
  • Run SUM.
  • Add the ESXi host to be updated as a remote target/node.
  • Enter IP or DNS address of the ESXi host to be updated Enter the ESXi host credentials (root or administrator username and password).
  • For SUM 6.0 and newer, select both the Additional Package with the added component and the SPP Baseline on the node Inventory page.
  • Follow Smart Update Manager Steps and complete the firmware update.

Refer to the SPP documentation for detailed instructions at: http://www.hpe.com/info/spp/documentation
 
To use HP Insight Control for vCenter:

  • Log in to the vSphere Client.
  • Select a server or cluster in the inventory tree.
  • Click the HP Insight Management tab.
  • Follow Insight Control for vCenter steps to update firmware using a Smart Component

To update firmware from VMware ESXi operating system on target server:

  • Enable Tech Support Mode on the ESXi host.
  • Login as root. (You must be root in order to apply the update.)
  • Place the Smart Component zip file in a temporary directory.
  • Unzip the file CPXXXXXX.zip
  • Ensure that CPXXXXXX.vmexe is executable by using the command:

             chmod +x CPXXXXXX.vmexe    

  • From the same directory, execute the Smart Component. For example: ./CPXXXXXX.vmexe
  • Follow the directions given by the Smart Component.
  • Logout
  • Disable Tech Support Mode on the ESXi host.

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.
