Proliant DL580 G8 - Compatibility with custom image VMWare VSphere Update 3

I had previously updated two DL380 G9 servers using the HPe customer image.  I went to 'Drivers and Software' downloads for the DL380 G9 and found a link for the VSphere 6.0 Update 3 software under 'Software CD-ROM'.  I updated both servers without issue.

I have two DL580 G8 servers running VMWare VSphere 6.0 Update 1 and I want to update these servers to VMWare VSphere 6.0 Update 3.  I went to 'Drivers and Software' downloads for the DL580 G8.  However when I go to 'Software CD-ROM' the published update is VSphere 6.0 Update 2 from December 2016.

When I check HPs Server Support and Compatibility Matrix (http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/supportmatrix/vmware.aspx) I see that the Proliant DL580 G8 is compatible with VSphere 6.0 Update 3.

Is the 'Drivers and Software' page for the DL580 G8 just out date?
Can I use HPs custom VSphere 6 update 3 image to update the Proliant DL580 G8?

The VMWare software recipe doc shows VSphere 6 update 2 requires installing drives prior to applying update 2.  I would prefe using update 3 which has the drivers bundled in the image.  Also, I need the servers on update 3 accross the board.

Thank you...
