Pay attention, dangerous Service Pack for ProLiant

Good day, colleagues.

 

HP support recommends to me to update some firmwares in my blade environment. For test at first I decided to update only one enclosure c7000 G2 with seven servers: 3 ESXi hosts and 4 Windows/Linux.

I updated ESXi hosts BIOS via iLO (new feature in 1.30 version). After that servers are OK.

 

Then I updated the same BIOS  for other hosts by Service Pack for ProLiant. Reboot - and all these servers became "bricks".  Their behavior was same:  http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.…6444892.492883150

But I have BL servers, not DL!

 

SPP was on one from these servers, therefore, I think the network doesn't link with the trouble.

 

After that I updated problem servers BIOS via iLO also - servers became alive.

 

Maybe, there are problems with SPP?

Servers are: HP BL460c Gen8, old BIOS is 2012.12.14, new BIOS is 2013.09.18.

SPP is 2013.09.0.

No, I didn't see this advisory. Thanks. It's my fault.
But it seems to me that I tried to shut down and after to shut up the problem servers and I had no success... However, I am not sure.

But when I updated this BIOS via iLO directly it didn't need for cold reboot exactly.
