Re: Error whilst upgrading to the lastest BIOS for a BL465c G7

I was fairly annoyed that i had to do the very slow process of booting off the full SPP just to scan/inventory this one update, which is CP015808.scexe

 

So,  I did some digging and i found a bootable SPLD update for the DL320 G6 for a similar component, which uses a stripped down version of the SPP to apply one specific update.       I deleted the .scexe out of the folder and replaced it with CP015808.scexe and although when booting the CD it still says you're about to update a DL320,  when it goes to apply the SPLD it says BL 465c G7 and works like a charm.     Very quick and easy.

 

File I started with was this:

dl320g6.ml330g6-offline-cpld-flash-22-7.iso

 

I opened that up and went to the /hp/swpackages/ folder and removed/replaced the .SCEXE file, and re-saved the ISO.     That ISO is what I have attached.  i've used this on several BL465c G7's to go from SPLD version 12 to version 15 and am no longer having issues updating the ROM/BIOS.

 

Enjoy.

...or you could download the dl320g6.ml330g6-offline-cpld-flash-22-7.iso file i noted and do the same thing yourself.

Re: Error whilst upgrading to the lastest BIOS for a BL465c G7

Thanks for this tip. I also had issues getting three BL465c G7 blades to take a BIOS update (2011 to 2014) and the CP015808.scexe was the trick. The blades were already running RHEL5, so I just ran the file as root from there, no need to slip it into the SPP ISO (YMMV). The SPLD update showed an upgrade from v12 to v15.  After the blades were powered off, pulled, re-seated, and powered on, the BIOS update on the SPP disk ran successfully on all 3 blades.

Re: Error whilst upgrading to the lastest BIOS for a BL465c G7

The advisory has two links:

 

Linux Smart Component:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/sc-linux-fw/p1156006652/v71524

Windows Smart Component:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/sc-windows-fw/p919033972/v71525

 

but the windows link is broken.

 

The linux link points to this file:

 

-rwx------    1 Administ UsersGrp    426989 Apr 28 11:55 CP015808.scexe

 

I created a md5 = 602875E3471D454C281AAD59C1F7844D

 

Can someone confirm the file size or md5?

 

Because always when I run it it gives

 

./CP015808.scexe: line 55: $_TMPFILE: ambiguous redirect
./CP015808.scexe: Cannot decompress ./CP015808.scexe


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Error whilst upgrading to the lastest BIOS for a BL465c G7

I just started over and this time it worked (I don't know why):

 

  sh CP015808.scexe --unpack=.
+ _TMPDIR=/tmp/sctmpdir1648
+ _TARGET_DIR=/tmp/sctmpdir1648
+ test -n ''
+ _UNPACK=0
+ _HPSUM=0
+ true
+ case $1 in
++ echo --unpack=.
++ cut -b 10- -
+ _TARGET_DIR=.
+ test -z .
+ _UNPACK=1
+ break
+ for argss in '$@'
+ '[' --unpack=. = -SMPJTB ']'
+ '[' --unpack=. = --SMPJTB ']'
+ '[' --unpack=. = /SMPJTB ']'
+ _DEPS='tar gzip tail sleep rm ln mkdir mktemp echo'
+ which tar gzip tail sleep rm ln mkdir mktemp echo
+ test 0 '!=' 0
+ test 1 = 1
+ Unpack .
+ _UNPACK_DIR=.
+ test -d .
+ :
++ mktemp ./sc1648.XXXXXX
+ _TMPFILE=./sc1648.lmc52R
+ tail -n +347 CP015808.scexe
+ gzip -cd
+ test 1 = 1
+ tar --no-same-owner -xkvf ./sc1648.lmc52R -C .

CP015808.xml
cpqsetup
+ _RESULT=0
+ Die 0
+ rm -rf ./sc1648.lmc52R /tmp/sctmpdir1648
+ exit 0


Hope this helps!

Re: Error whilst upgrading to the lastest BIOS for a BL465c G7

I'm facing similar issue when trying to upgrade:

 

ProLiant BL465c G7 System ROM A19 01/29/2011

 

with the HP SPP 2014.09 .ISO file, so does this problem now fixed with the HP SPP 2015.04 ?

Best regards,
