Upgrade fimware Gen8 server never updated before

Hi,

I work for a company that have serveral servers, Gen8 and Gen9, that never before have been updated the firmware.

As I realize this situation, I asked why have never update them, but nobody could answer.

I want to start upgrading a DL36p Gen8, and I'd like to know if is possible to go directly with the post production SSP 8.1, P03093_001_spp-Gen8.1-SPPGen81.4.iso, or should I apply previous SPPS'.

Thanks,

Alex.

Hello,

You can use SPP 8.1 to update the Gen8 server.

I would request you download the latest bios and firmware for the Gen8 server because a couple of bios and firmware released after SPP 8.1
