Gen 8 Smartstart scan?

Hello, we are a HP channel partner that delivers pre tested & pre configured servers to our customers.

We are currently using the new SPP for firmware and the smartstart 8.7B for component scan to check all hardware and deliver the clean test log to our customers.


We recently had our 1st Gen 8 servers and found out that smartstart is no longer compatible with Gen 8 and will not work.

I think the scan is included in the SPP but that’s can only be online because the offline boot will only deliver firmware updates.


Does anybody know where I can find the offline smartstart, or I am missing something?

Any help appreciated!!!
