Re: HP Firmware Maintenance ISO

Firmware CD 8.60 is on their FTP site now.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/cd/p1040529012/v53483/firmware-8.60-0.zip

Since they show up on the FTP site before they start linking to it from the Proliant software pages, I usually glance through and see if any of the directories have updated timestamps, and see if anything interesting is in there (Firmware or Smartstart CDs).

You can usually catch them a week or two in advance of showing up on the Proliant download pages. Same with the PSP bundles, although version control repository is usually quick to snag those in advance as well.

8.7 has no fixed date as of yet but should be ready when the dl380 g6 issue has a permanent fix, and should also solve p410i controller issues , and event id 57 issues ilo firmware and drivers will be on it too..

Can you tell me more about the "dl380 g6 issue" and the "p410i controller issues"?

We have installed VMware VSphere on a new DL380 G6 and have a really poor IO performance with the virtual machines.
The latest Firmware is installed.

Thanks.
Torsten.

There are several threads about this Proliant with power off issues on the forums - see next pages.

Hope this helps!

Re: HP Firmware Maintenance ISO

I've been waiting for it since July! That's when it was first announced as part of the notes for version 1.3.0.0 of the USB Key Utility.

Re: HP Firmware Maintenance ISO

I know, strange, but look here:

I think HP's release schedule got way out of whack, or something.
