Re: DL180 G5 firmware maintenance cd

The firmware maintenance CD is not designed for Proliants 100 Server series. You need to download each firmware and update it from the following link:

I successfuly updated firmware for hdds from 8.40 FMCD, but can't update firmware for e200 ("Return code 7"). Have no Windows or Linux but FreeBSD only installed. So i can flash only from live cd like FMCD 8.40.

Download the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit for Linux. The Users Manual explains how to make it a bootable CD or USB key. When your creating the CD image copy in the .scexe files you need for your updates

The SSSTK basically will boot you into a Linux kernel RAM drive so you can run the .scexe files

The SSSTK for Linux is near the bottom of the page

Re: DL180 G5 firmware maintenance cd

Does the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit works to update the firmware also? I thought it was for drivers. If so, that's good to know.

Nothing help from methods above... But...

I do by myself... :)

Build Bart's PE Live CD from the Windows Server 2003 with a HP Smart Array e200 driver and firmware v.1.80. Boot from it and flash from it. Now i have a e200 v.1.80. On my opinion, it's a more easy way then above, cause there are a few steps and clicks.

Thank's for a your attention guys.
