For OA see

the other versions look good.



In general - if looking for something - go to

Hope this helps!

Re: re: HP Blade C7000 bl460

here you can find BL460c g6 FW.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3884099&prodTypeId=3709945&prodSeriesId=3884098&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1005#29217

just choose OS and go to Firmware - Lights-Out Management row.
but now you have already up to date for one server.

and for ROM go to the BIOS - System ROM row.choose Online ROM Flash Component for Windows - HP ProLiant BL460c G6/WS460c G6 (I24) Servers for easy way.

At the same link you can find OA FW at Firmware - Blade Infrastructure row.HP BladeSystem c-Class Onboard Administrator Firmware .
Your Power Management Controller version is already up to date.


Before FW upgrading always read the installation instructions.

You can upgrade ILO or OA first for this situation.

But for beginner i suggest to use Firmware Maintenance CD 8.70.
it will update necessary FWs by offline.
just boot the server with FW CD.
And then update you OA FW.
