work out which PSP or smart start CD was used to build a BL460c?

Is there a simple way of working out which PSP or smartstart CD was used to build a blade. All of our blades have either proliant support packs installed, or were build using smartstart CDs. I would like to be able to work out which version was used on older builds. I tried extracting a PSP, and looking through smartstart CDs, but they did not contain a list of drivers that I could compare. Is a list contained anywhere? or do they record the version anywhere in windows?

You can check the release notes for a particular package at the download page.

 

There should also be a xml file in the package that might have the information in it.

 

Do you know if the drivers/agents have been updated since they were installed?  If not, you can probably look at the version of the server management agents.  I am assuming you are running Windows here... so restart the agents and check the event log.  It will tell you the version number it is... which should match with the version of the PSP/SSCD used.
