Re: Firmware update utilties

Hi,

The URL you put here cannot be reached.

I'm also seeking for the general firmware upgrade notes/websites for Itanium. Cybary has good enough resources for Proliant updates, but I haven't found one for Itanium.

HP Business support center lists all firmwares that can be updated(disk, efi, system/bmc, controller, offline diag cd, etc.), and did not mention any release notes, and I don't even know which disk firmware matches which controller firmware.

Anybody can help?

Hi,

look at the link:

You can choose different methods of firmware upgrade. For example you can download EFI Image and follow installation instruction:
