SLES 11SP3 Installation on Dl360P Gen8 server

Hi,

 

I'm preparing to install SLES 11SP3 (64bit) on a DL360P Gen8 server and it's not clear to me if I can install the HP Care Packs and HP drivers from the intelligent privisioning of the server self (F10 at boot time??) or that I need an ISO file which should be run before the SLES installation. Any help is welcome. Thanks in advance.

 

regards,

 

Ivan

Hi,

 

Using F10, "Intelligent Provisioning" you can install an supported OS.

After installation, you need to update the drivers from SPP.

Hi Suman,

 

Thank you for  your response. Browsing the url you gave me I did find this file:

  psp-9.40.sles11.en.tar.gz

 

Is this the file I need to install after the SLES 11SP3 installation?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

regards,

Hi,

 

From the SPP download page, http://www.hp.com/go/spp/download

 

You need to download the SPP which is "HP Service Pack for ProLiant (4.24 GB)"

PSP is older version of SPP.

Hi Suman,

 

Sorry to bother you again but if I click on "HP Service Pack for ProLiant (4.24 GB)" I'm redirected to some other page and no where I can find and iso file to download.  So if you have a direct url to the iso download page send it to me. Thanks in advance.

 

regards,

Hi,

 

Refer to installation instructions on this page.

By the way, to download BIOS and some firmware/drivers like SPP, one must have a valid warranty or contract for the server.
