Updating Firmware Proliant DL360p Gen 8 in Cluster

Hi All,

Sure silly question, but asking anyway :)

I have 2x DL360p Gen 8 servers, as part of a cluster (2012 R2). I haven't updated any firmware since I set this all up - is there anything I need to be aware of as it's in a cluster fo applying the firmware updates?

I'll migrate all VMs to one node, then apply firmware on the other node, reboot, migrate VMs to the other node, apply, reboot then split VM distribution.  All done within ILO?

Thanks in advance for any guidance offered.

Hi CopeStarr,

The server needs to be updated with the firmware as well as the drivers.
Use SPP to do the updates. The last released SPP for DL360p Gen8 is 8.1

The steps you mentioned are correct.

Make sure you keep backup of data before making any changes.
