Advice on Installing Drivers from HP SPP onto W2K12 R2

I'm having very uneven results with the HP SPP.  I downloaded it, and located the file that installs the Smart Storage Administrator (that replaces the HP Array Configuration Utility).   It works well.

 

I had less luck with the HP Management Home Page.  On a DL360G5, it can't connect to the onboard management controller.  It claims it isn't there, but the server must have one because the other ten DL360G5's I run do have them and they the servers into Insight Manager very nicely.

 

How can I run the HP SPP so that it installs all the drivers I need at one fell swoop?  Not firmware, mind you, just the drivers for hte HP Utilities, such as Insight Manager and Version Control Utility, etc. etc.

 

Is there a list of which drivers are in which files?

Consider to run HP SUM (2015.04) on localhost or from remote and connect to the server in question. This will generate a list of possible matching firmware and drivers. You may also select "software only" or "firmware only".


Hope this helps!

Re: Advice on Installing Drivers from HP SPP onto W2K12 R2

By luck, I discovered a way to attain what I wanted:  the HP tools on a newly installed W2K12 server --

 

If you want to install the firmware, simply boot from the DVD containing HP SPP

 

If you want to install the HP tools, boot the OS, insert the DVD, and run d:\hp\swpackages\hpsum.bat.  That will provide a list of about twenty utilities to install.

 

Thank you,
