Use the lasted Service Pack for Proliant  feb2o14

Important is the following order:

 

1. Update all servers first via the SPP

2. Update Onboard Administrator

3. Update Virtual Connect

 

Windows servers, use the spp iso online. run fron windows hpsum. this way the firmware, driver and agents are installed at once.

 

ESX Servers, use de SPP iso offline, boot from it. it only installed firmware

for recommendations of vmware see  http://vibsdepot.hp.com/
