BL460G6 - SPP & Windows 2008



I am trying to upgrade a server (BL460 g6), I want to upgraded Firmware & Drivers in Windows 2008 Std Ed  using the latest SPP image.....I downloaded the SPP Full image and I have mounted the image in iLO and can see the files under windows....but I don't appear to be able to run HP SUM because it says This version of E:\hp\swpackages\hpsum.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running?


I have been looking about on HP website all morning trying to work out how to resolve the issue.....There doesn't appear to be a differnet version of the SPP to download....


I know I can boot the image to upgrade the firmware (but what about the drivers?) - all exe files I click on report the same thing?


What am I doing wrong? - everything I read says that its supported????   - I can't HP SUM remotely because the Network Teams block the ports due to security concerns......So How to I perform an update to a local server using a ISO Image?



P.S. This thread has been moevd  from ProLiant Servers (ML,DL,SL) to HP BladeSystem Server Blades - Hp forum Moderator

Perhaps this is causing problems somehow?  Can you copy the files directly to the blade's hard drive and run SUM there?


Otherwise, try downloading the drivers/firmware directly:
