Proliant BL490c G7 Firmware update procedure

Hello,

 

I am trying to determine the firmware update procedure and best practices updating the firmware on a HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure including all of its blades, ILO, and any other physical devices.

 

I would imagine this is a fairly standard procedure and I have been searching for a process online, but I would imagine there is more than one way to accomplish this so I am also looking for any recommendations or best practices that people may have.

 

Can someone please assist?

 

Thanks.

Service Pack for Proliant will include all drivers and firmwares , HP SUM which is a part of SPP will help in accomplishing the task

I started this process last Friday, using HP SUM i was able to update the OA successfully.

 

However when it came to the blades, the progress bar would near 100% and then error out

 

"files could not be downloaded from the specified ur"

 

using locally downloaded repository, will try ftp tomorrow.
