Reboot after firmware update

I have 5 firmware updates for our Proliant DL360e Gen 8 and this is my first time doing this.  Should I reboot the server after each  update or wait until the last one (1) is installed?

Re: Reboot after firmware update

Hi,

 

You can reboot the server after all the firmware's have been applied.

The new firmware's will be effective only after a server reboot.

 

Some firmware's will prompt you to reboot immediately and will give no other option to do other things on the server, at that time, you have no other choice but to reboot.

 

Thank You!

Re: Reboot after firmware update

A followup question, 

The b3201 controller is congifured with 2 logical drives

 

Drive 1 has 2 HHD configured as RAID 1 - (500 GB each drive)

Drive 2 has 3 HHD configured as RAID 5 - ( 1TB each drive)

 

Will this cause any perfomance issues, it seems the data transfer is on the slow side. 

 

Did not know if having 2 RAID types on 1 controller would affect the data transfer rate....

Do you have a cache module installed on the B320i? I don't think it ships with the module. Without the cache module o nthe controller I would expect the transfer rates to be slow
