Inventory Error when upgrading firmware

 Hi all, need some help here. been stuck for the past few days.

I have a few gen9 proliant servers that needed to be updated to v2.60. None of them have any os installed, they are all fresh servers

- Downloaded the SPP 2018.06 and key utility

- Converted a thumbdrive into a bootable iso.

Was able to update all but one of the servers. During step 1 of the update, it will perform a baseline and inventory check. The baseline check was successful, however when checking the inventory of the localhost, it failed and showed an inventory error. I could'nt find any more information regarding what caused the error.

Re: Inventory Error when upgrading firmware

Did you ever get this working? I am facing the same exact issue with the latest SPP and the only uptions the wizard gives me is to "Start over" or to "Reboot". Not sure where to go from here.

Hi,

While running "launch_hpsum.bat ",  right click and choose run as administrator or run as root user in linux.

else you may get inventory errors.

Re: Inventory Error when upgrading firmware

This is going to sound nuts, but it may work.

We have 24 Proliant HP450s in a Scality Ring.  
12 are local and 12 are across a WAN.
We apply iLO firmware updates every quarter by mounting the firmware .iso as a local drive and booting it.
We do this thru the HTML5 console in the iLO.

For reasons that are unknown to us, the remote servers will regularly fail in the "Inventory of the localhost" stage.
The scale goes to 50% and stops. That's all she wrote.  
Then you either power cycle the box or wait an hour for it to fail on its own,
(At which point it displays "Inventory Error"). Then you can click on "Start Over" (that button is greyed out until you get the "Inventory Error" message).

Now, this is going to sound nuts, 

But it appears that if you keep the mouse in the HTML5 console window,
And keep moving it and clicking (expand and contract the “Inventory Baseline” and the such) while its doing its inventory,
It will make it through the “Inventory” step.

I call this the “Wiggle-Wiggle-DooPah” affect.

If you just let it sit and do it on its own,
It HANGS.

Please update as to whether this helps, we won't be doing firmware updates again for a while.
