HP Proliant DL 360 G5 iLO 2 Upgrade Inquiry


HP Proliant DL 360 G5 iLO 2 Upgrade Inquiry



I have a pair of the sibject servers running VMware vSphere 4.1 (ESXI 4.1). I want to upgrade the iLO firmware on these servers but I have to know a couple of things before doing this:

  1. if I go through the web interface, will it require me to restart the servers or will iLO simply restart?
  2. Even if the servers don't have to be restarted, will I need to vMotion all of the VM's off the server I'm working on to perform the upgrade?
  3. What is the FTP link to download the iLO 2 firmware for this model of server? When I attempt to access the Proliant DL360 G5 Support page, it tells me it is 'Forbidden.'
  4. If three is invalid, is it because iLO 2 is the same across all servers that have it and the same version can be used to upgrade the firmware on all iLO-based servers?


Thanks all,
