P4500G2 - Firmware upgrade (SPP or Firmware DVD)

Hello,

 

someone here got experience regarding Firmware Upgrades for the P4500G2?

Should I use the latest SPP (HP Service Pack for ProLiant 2014.02.0 (B)) or the Firmware DVD (HP Smart Update Firmware DVD 9.30) for upgrading the LH?

Guess SPP got some newer Firmware the LH is not compatible with? (ILO, ...?)

 

Thank you

Andreas Schnederle-Wagner

I always use latest SPP. If some components (ilo might be) some intermediate version, then you will need to download necessary firmware .scexe file from hp.com ant place to components catalog (i use USB key for upgrades).

Agreed. latest firmware is almost always better, and I am yet to see any issues from having a version too new.
