Is the latest critical BIOS update included in firmware update 9.30 for the DL360 and DL380?

I am trying to determine from limited documentation whether firmware update 9.30 (for DL360/380)

includes the latest critical BIOS update.  Is there a document available that specifically states this

that I just haven't run across yet?

 

Thanks,

Not if the BIOS update was released after the firmware DVD.

For the DL380 G7 the date is the same though (5th of Ma).

 

For the complete list of firmware on the DVD, see the FW Server Support Guide on the DVD or the HP
website
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/c-products/servers/management/smartstart/

 

But this doesn't have it for 9.30.

 

Maybe if you download it and look in the .iso?

 

For DL380 G7:

 

2011.05.05
6 Jul 2011

 

FW DVD 9.30 was released:

 

 

9.30

this is the content of firmware maint. DVD 9.30. It does not contain the latest updates for dl360 and dl380.

HP is distributing it's firmware in "Service Pack for Proliant" wich is basically supportpack and firmware maintenance on the same DVD.

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/spp/index.html

 

The first version 2011.09.0 is FW maintenance 9.30 and PSP 8.70 with a few changes on firmware like newer bios for DL380 G7 and so on..
