Gen10 and SPP

I have a ProLiant DL380 Gen10.
I installed ESXi 7.0 on it using the Custom image 7.0
"VMware_ESXi_7.0.0_16324942_HPE_700.0.0.10.5.5.46_Jun2020".

I installed Windows Server 2019 Standard on a VM.

 Wish to install the SPP on it, but when I try to install SPP 2020.09.0 SPP
"P35936_001_gen10spp-2020.09.0-SPP2020090.2020_0901.17.iso"

I get the message:
Warning - The selected Firmware Baseline is not supported for the given server. It is not recommended to continue with the updates using this baseline. Please select a different supported baseline for this server.To proceed with the updates using this baseline at your own risk, select Ignore Warnings option.

I downloaded the ISO, mounted it, ran launch_sum.bat, chose localhost guided update, and got this warning again:

Re: Gen10 and SPP

Hi,

if you Install a VM, you no longer Install it on an HPE Server.

Your Setup is then based on VMware Virtualised Hardware.

Do not Install any HPE Software inside the VM, only Install the VMware Host Tools.

Re: Gen10 and SPP

The HPE download page for 'Gen10 Service Pack for ProLiant' lists VMware vSphere 7.0 as a supported Operating System.
Is that a mistake, or do I have the apply the service pack some other way?

Re: Gen10 and SPP

This is, because it also include vSphere OS Driver. The same driver as included in the HPE ESX Image.

You can deploy it to the OS running on the hardware via SUM.

But it makes no sense to install it on a virtual machine.

 

However, consider to boot the server from SPP and update the firmware.


Hope this helps!
