Hi,

I assume these are not new Servers, so please share the Generation. Look for DL360p Gen 7, Gen 8, G7, Gen 9.
Also if you find a P/N# on the Label will help.

"p" means this is a Gen8, DL360p Gen8.

 

Look up the HPE support pages for drivers and firmware you need.

 

If you have a conract, you can get the SPP Gen8 Post Production. https://spp.hpe.com


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: How to update to fully optimized firmware, patches and security updates on dl360p

This is Proliant dl360p gen 8

I have this servicepack from my IT dept. SPP 2021.05.0

I working form home, and have tried to implement it using boot from virtual media and then update from smart provisioning / update Firmware.....

Is it nescessarry to create bootable usb, to fully update components or was this solution fair.

Any other updates I should consider ?

Im not sure if there is any other things to do, or the rest is left to vCenter updates for the ESXi enviroment.

Best Regards 

Jan

First, the 2021.05 did not include Gen8 Firmware, is only for new Server Models.

You need the Gen8 Download above.

Boot from ISO with Virtual Media or generate a Bootable USB Stick with the Tool in the \usb\hpusbkey\ Folder.

For DL380p Gen8 the latest Supported ESX Version is 6.0U3.

VMware Archived Servers from HPE Certification and Support | Hewlett Packard Enterprise

Use the HPE ESX Install, this includes all needed Drivers:
