Proliant DL380 G3 which RHEL Software Suppport Pack to use to update firmware for the 2.6 kernel?

I'm planning an install for Check Points R75.20.  I think it uses the 2.6.32.2 kernel, this should be a pretty close guess.  And I want to update the firmware using the SSP.  I'm not sure of which one I need to download.  Would someone help me out with the link?

 

I have the latest SSP but it throws the err msg "this kernel requires an x86-64 cpu, but only detected an i646 cpu. unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your cpu" when I try to boot from it.  I have a similar post regarding Smart Start and a forum member pointed me to Smart Start v8.25 as the latest for the G3's.  I probably need something similar for the SSP.

 

Thanks

Re: Proliant DL380 G3 which RHEL Software Suppport Pack to use to update firmware for the 2.6 kernel

Hi,

 

DL380 G3 supports only 32bit operating system.  From the error message I am guessing that you might have installed x64bit OS/kernel on this server.

 

You can take a look at this link "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Certification and Support HP ProLiant & BladeSystem Server"

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/linux/hplinuxcert.html

 

Here are the ProLiant Support Packs:

Thanks for the tip that the G3 is only 32 bit.  I've not installed anything yet.  I want to update the firmware before I install an o/s.  I'll download the support packs and see which one works.
