HP Update Utility

Hi, I wish to perform an offline firmware update of a 5304 Smartarray controller in a Proliant G2. An online update is not an option.

I have the .scexe file and now I need the hp update utility. I do not have the Smartstart subscription service CDs , i.e. firmware update CD. I have all versions of Smartstart up to 7.10.

Is there no way to update the firmware from a cold boot without having to pay for the subscription service? I can't believe you cannot download the hp update utility anywhere.

Thanks for any information.

Rosco.

It's a good thing you can't believe it. You can download it. The firmware maintenance CD is available at:

The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Hi

Iam not sure what OS you are running but it is also good to update the BIOS also on the server and the drivers on the OS.

This can be downloaded as mentioned in this thread

Go through the instllation instruction you wont require a CD.
Upgrading or flashing the Smart Array 5300 Controller or Smart Array Cluster controllers can take ten or more minutes.
