Re: Best way to update BIOS on 150 HP DL 360 G5 Servers?

Regarding the DL360 G5 all you have to do is to download the BIOS From the HP Website and it is a self-extracting executable file all you have to do is double click the file and follow the installation wizard to complete the Enhanced SoftPaq installation process. What Generation is the Proliant ML150? Assuming is Generation 5 you do the same.

hi Jeff

what you can do is this

Download Proliant Support Pack(PSP), why?
it has the HP SUM utility which lets you install updates Firmware (like you need) and of course drivers (you don't)

Ok let me explain this to you
when you extract the PSP there is a file called hpsum.exe

you run that, you include the IPs addresses you want to update for your Dl360 G5s
HPSUM validates access for this servers and and checks the bundled of .exe's in the PSP folder there is where you must include the latest System ROM update (linked by Gary already)

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=1121486&prodNameId=3288144&swEnvOID=1113&swLang=8&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-af6e1bc8877a4135add16fd817&mode=3

so you copy this file into the rest of .exe's
cp009388.exe

and HPSUM is going to detect that System ROM can be updated in target servers (remote servers)

I added some screens

my screens were with Dl385 updating System ROM to the latest

anything else let us know

My mistake! I read it fast and I understood ML150 instead of 150 servers

hi Jeff

other way would be but I think this is expensive use HP SIM that handles tasks that can updates Drivers and Firmware for a list of servers but HP SUM works fine
