Installation:

HPE OmniStack Firmware version 3.7.6 supports systems running HPE OmniStack Software versions 3.7.6 and 3.7.6U1. The following files are available for download:

  • HPE SimpliVity Support Pack: SVTSP-2018_0828.01.iso
  • HPE SimpliVity Support Pack Signature: SVTSP-2018_0828.01.iso.sig
  • HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen9 Controller Update: 790-000107-LSI-g.iso

Firmware Update for HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen9 

The HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen9 operates in Legacy boot mode only.  All updates should be performed without changing the BIOS boot mode.  Prior to performing any update the system must be in maintenance mode.  Updating the firmware on the SimpliVity 380 Gen9 requires two steps. For specific instructions refer to the appropriate section of the Interoperability Guidehttp://www.hpe.com/info/simplivity-interop-doc

  1. To update the data storage controller and drives boot the system using 790-000107-LSI-g.iso.  At the command prompt run the following commands in order:
    • sudo su –
    • ./update_fw
    • A system reboot is required to complete this phase of the firmware update.
  2. To update the remaining components follow the process in the next section.

Firmware Update for HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen9, HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen10, and HPE SimpliVity 2600

To update the components boot the system using SVTSP-2018_0828.01.iso (Offline mode).  Use of Automatic mode is recommended to complete the installation.

  • Automatic mode - Firmware components will be updated without interaction (including reboot)
  • Interactive mode - Follow the onscreen steps to update firmware components

Booting the ISO will default to Automatic mode if no choice is made from the boot menu. Booting from iLO virtual media is only supported in Automatic Firmware Update mode. Users attempting this in any other mode may experience hangs from connection timeouts, difficulties updating iLO firmware, and mouse syncing issues.

HPE OmniStack Firmware version 3.7.6 supports systems running HPE OmniStack Software versions 3.7.6 and 3.7.6U1. The following files are available for download:

  • HPE SimpliVity Support Pack: SVTSP-2018_0828.01.iso
  • HPE SimpliVity Support Pack Signature: SVTSP-2018_0828.01.iso.sig
  • HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen9 Controller Update: 790-000107-LSI-g.iso

Firmware Update for HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen9 

The HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen9 operates in Legacy boot mode only.  All updates should be performed without changing the BIOS boot mode.  Prior to performing any update the system must be in maintenance mode.  Updating the firmware on the SimpliVity 380 Gen9 requires two steps. For specific instructions refer to the appropriate section of the Interoperability Guidehttp://www.hpe.com/info/simplivity-interop-doc

  1. To update the data storage controller and drives boot the system using 790-000107-LSI-g.iso.  At the command prompt run the following commands in order:
    • sudo su –
    • ./update_fw
    • A system reboot is required to complete this phase of the firmware update.
  2. To update the remaining components follow the process in the next section.

Firmware Update for HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen9, HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen10, and HPE SimpliVity 2600

To update the components boot the system using SVTSP-2018_0828.01.iso (Offline mode).  Use of Automatic mode is recommended to complete the installation.

  • Automatic mode - Firmware components will be updated without interaction (including reboot)
  • Interactive mode - Follow the onscreen steps to update firmware components

Booting the ISO will default to Automatic mode if no choice is made from the boot menu. Booting from iLO virtual media is only supported in Automatic Firmware Update mode. Users attempting this in any other mode may experience hangs from connection timeouts, difficulties updating iLO firmware, and mouse syncing issues.

Firmware Update for Legacy SimpliVity Platforms:

To upgrade firmware for these systems, please see specific platform manufacturer's support site to obtain their supported firmware. For specific information on upgrading please refer to appropriate section of the platform Interoperability Guide.

Based on your existing environment, upgrades to this version of firmware might require assistance from Customer Support (http://www.hpe.com/support/hpesc).
