Hi AfTaStEr,

                    Did the issue start after the BIOS update? There is a latest BIOS available (Released in 2018) for the server.

Request you to update it to this version and check on the issue. Since you have not mentioned the OS, I am unable to provide you the exact one for the server. For your reference, I am attaching the one for windows.

BIOS: https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=3884088&swItemId=MTX_5ff6f4d7c8e4406095d4761456&swEnvOid=4184

Re: HP DL160 G6

Hi rajatmitra,

You have provided a link to - ** CRITICAL ** Online ROM Flash Component for Windows x64 - HP ProLiant DL380 G6 (P62) Servers - rather than the HP ProLiant DL160 G6 referred to in the posts title?

Therefore, is there a forthcoming BIOS update planned for the ProLiant DL160 G6 series (e.g. E5504 - Nehalem)?

The ProLiant DL380 G6 (E5504 - Nehalem) has the latest Intel Spectre/Meltdown code in 2018.02.22 released in March 2018 in your post reply.

According to the latest Product Security Vulnerability Alert - https://h22208.www2.hpe.com/eginfolib/securityalerts/SCAM/Side_Channel_Analysis_Method.html Side Channel Analysis Method allows information disclosure in Microprocessors (CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754)  it is not listed.

In terms of temperature, the readings from my DL160 G6 (2x E5504) are;

  • CPU1 sensor 30 deg. C
  • CPU2 sensor 41.5 deg. C

So this appears normal for CPU1 with the latest available BIOS 4.26 (IPMI v2.0).
