HP ROM-Based Setup Utility User Guide - Latest!

ProLiant servers all come with a configuration utility that is embedded in the on board system ROM.

This ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU) performs a wide range of configuration activities

that may include:

Configuring system devices and installed options

Displaying system information

Selecting the primary boot controller

Configuring online spare memory


RBSU is available in two interfaces: a menu-driven interface and a BIOS Serial Command Console

(CLI) interface.


With the recent release of the ProLiant Gen8 servers, the RBSU User's Guide has been updated. Here is the latest and greatest.
