Remote Installation of "Smart Array P420p" Firmware updates on DL380p (Gen8)

I am trying to remotely install the Firmware updates (cp023887.exe, cp028699.exe, cp029120.exe & cp030725.exe) using PowerShell. 

These Firmware updates are for a "Smart Array P420i Controller" on an HP DL380p Gen:8 server.

The installation keep causing the remote server to crash& reboot or do not install the update at all.

Does anyone have any examples on how this remote installation can be done?

Thanks...

Rob C.

Hi Rob

I recommend you to install the latest SPP, it will update all your drivers and firmwares including the smart array controller.

http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/products/service_pack/spp/index.aspx

The installation steps are very easy and needs you to have a remote console (You can get it from iLo for example).

Good Luck.

Hi Rob

I suppose you have your server running on windows server.

you can maybe use the latest software from below link :

Hi,

I installed the "HP Smart Update Manager (SUM)" and applied the patches using that tool. 

It worked fine and I am also able to do remote inventories on the servers as well.

Thanks
