HP SPP 2017.7.2 or 2017.10 on Oracle Linux 6.9

Hello Dear Sirs,

I experience problems with applying of HP SPP on Oracle Linux 6.9 using HP SPP 2017.7.2 or most recent HP SPP 2017.10 ISO P- 01456_001_spp-2017.10.1-SPP2017101.2017_1027.10.iso

 Smart update service considers Oracle Linux 6.9 as not supported system. Please find below scouting log below:

Can You kindly clarify why Oracle Linux 6.9 is not applicable for most recent support packs? In 2017.04 on Oracle Linux works like a charm . Why "support" it is dissapear now?

Thank You in advance.

Service Pack for ProLiant 2017.04.0 was the last SPP to support Oracle Enterprise Linux (offline only).

SPP 2017.07.2 or SPP 2017.10.1 does not support Oracle Linux.

You may also check Oracle Linux Operating Systems - FAQ "Will there be SPP support?".

Thank You!

Re: HP SPP 2017.7.2 or 2017.10 on Oracle Linux 6.9

 Thank You for clarification. It this policy applies only for firmware updates or for HPE-utilities as well? I still can install hpssacli, hp-snmp-agents, hp-health, hpsmh, hpshm-templates and etc for Oracle Linux 6.9 from newer SPPs than 2017.04 or not? I mean manually installation from /packages folder is ISO.

Technically this works, but what is concerns from support side? What is recommended practice for Oracle Linux 6.9 for keep system updated? Downloading separate packages from HPE Downloads?
