Upgrade of Proliant DL380 Gen8 Servers

Hi Experts,

I have Two Questions

Question 01 :

I wanted to update Drivers and Firmware for HP DL380 Gen8 server so i just google and find out that the easiest way to is download the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) therefore i download SSP GEN10 so can i use this to update Drivers and Firmware of my Gen8 Servers.

Question 02 :

I downloaded Firmware for Power and ILo from HP (https://support.hpe.com/connect/s/product?cc=us&kmpmoid=5194969&tab=driversAndSoftware&lang=en#t=DriversandSoftware&sort=relevancy&layout=table&numberOfResults=25&f:@kmswsoftwaretypekey=[swt8000029]) link but when i try to run it from my operating system it gives me an error

So I just try to update from the iLO page it displays a different error.

Well, this SPP is for Gen10, not for Gen8.

For Gen8 go to

https://spp.hpe.com/custom

and select SPP Gen8.1

 

Second:

WHat file did you use?

The *.bin file or *.exe?

You need to extract the *.bin from the *.exe first.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
