HP Proliant dl380e Gen8 Drivers


I'm quite new to HP Proliant servers, but has acquired two of the above and need some drives for the Base System Device.  I have searched on the HP drivers pages and found others for the system, but not this.  Could you point me in the right direction?  Are there any CAB files available containing all system drivers?  Whilst the below is the only remaining device without a driver at all, some others are using Microsoft-selected drives, which you may suggest should be replaced...  We're running Windows Server 2019 on it.

See if this driver works for you.  It should work on Server 2019.

If the auto install file doesn't work try manually installing the driver as follows...

First, install this free file utility.  The 2nd file at the top of the page is for 64 bit.

After you install 7-zip, right click in the ILO driver file you saved.

Select 7-Zip from the list of items on the menu.

Have 7-Zip Extract to: and let it extract the file into its folder name (cp036919).

Then open that folder and find the hpqilo3chif cabinet file.

Right click on that file and select 7-Zip from the list of items on the menu, and have 7-Zip extract to:

Again, let it extract the file into its folder name.

Once that is done, go to the device manager, click on the Base System device needing the driver.

Click on the driver tab. Click on Update Driver.  Select the Browse my computer for driver software option and browse to the hpqilo3chif folder that 7-Zip created.

Make sure the Include subfolders box is checked and the driver should install.

Then restart the server.

Inside that cabinet file folder is the driver setup information file which shows driver support for the hardware ID you posted.

%iLO3.DeviceDesc% = hpqilo3chif_6, PCI\VEN_103C&DEV_3307&SUBSYS_330E103C
%iLO4.DeviceDesc% = hpqilo3chif_6, PCI\VEN_103C&DEV_3307&SUBSYS_3381103C
%iLO4Aux.DeviceDesc% = null_driver, PCI\VEN_103C&DEV_3307&SUBSYS_1979103C
