Upgrade VC 4.30 to VC4.31 thru HP OneView

Hi there,

I'm implementing HP One View with a  new C7000 enclosure. 
The topic is I want upgrade VC 4.30 to V4.31 but VCSU can't be used and the only way is do it thru HP One View ... 
 
Does anyone has upgrade VC thru OneView without SPP boundle?
 
I Think the issue could be resolved adding vc431 to custom spp but I don't know how do it.
Is it enoughtadd firmware file to swpackages?
 
Thanks in advance.

May I ask why VCSU can't be used? (IMHO the best way to deploy the firmware)


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

VCSU is no longer available to upgrade VC firmware managed by OneView.

The document says

 

Firmware management
HP OneView makes it easy to manage firmware reliably and quickly across your data center. It replaces separate tools such as the Virtual Connect Support Utility (VCSU) for managing Virtual Connect firmware. The
HP OneView online help provides more information on firmware management using HP OneView

 

 

 

http://h20195.www2.hp.com/V2/getpdf.aspx/4AA5-0351ENW.pdf?ver=1.0

 

But it does not say VCSU is not working/supported, right?

 

 

However it points to the help regarding the update ...

 


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

I think you should create a custom SPP in HP SUM and include VC Smart Component (probably CP025003.scexe).

Then, add that custom SPP to HP OneView and use it as a baseline for VC firmware update.
