Proliant DL380 Gen9

Hello was hoping for some assistance with upgrading the Firmware and Bios for a Proliant DL380 Gen9 and take it to a later version of esxi. I intend to use a USB to perform the update.

iLo is not available.

I have firmware version 2.5 as an .rpm file, and two zipped folders for esxi; One is a "util-bundle" and the other is a "mgmt-bundle".

I'm asking assistance with the steps to perform the upgrade. If you have any documentation that would be helpful.

What is the difference between the utl-bundle and mgmt-bundle? Do both need to be put on one USB? Zipped folders, or extracted? Step upgrade the esxi?

Is only the firmware.rpm file used to create a bootable usb?

Thank you

Re: Proliant DL380 Gen9

Best way to update all the firmware:

 

Get the current SPP2018.03 from http://spp.hpe.com/custom and use the USBKey tool (inside the ISO) to create the USB.

Boot from USB, select interactive and update all the firmware.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
