windows server 2016 drivers for DL160 G6

hi
where can i get drivers for DL160 G6 on windows server 2016 ?

I already looked here: https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/home/driverHome?sp4ts.oid=3884345
but there are very few drivers.
for example, there is no "system controller driver". i need it to install "Insight Management Agents"
when i install "Insight Management Agents", i get error:
"The software is not supported for installation on this system.
The installation program couldn't find the appropriate system management controller driver which is required but is not currently installed.  Please install the appropriate system management controller driver and then rerun the setup program.
Press 'Close' to exit Setup."

 

thanks in advanced

I'm afraid that is a pretty old server and not supported with Windows 2016. The lastest supported server OS for that system is Windows 2012 R2. 

Please see http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/supportmatrix/windows.aspx#.WgSsscanFaQ

ok,thanks.

i install 2012 r2.

try to install "Insight Management Agents", but get same error:
"The software is not supported for installation on this system.
 The installation program couldn't find the appropriate system management controller driver which is required but is not currently installed.  Please install the appropriate system management controller driver and then rerun the setup program.
 Press 'Close' to exit Setup."

i can't find "system management controller driver" on 2012 r2 here https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/home/driverHome?sp4ts.oid=3884345&swLangOid=35

where can i find it?

Re: windows server 2016 drivers for DL160 G6

I think your easiest bet would be to get your hands on an old HP Support Pack for Proliant (SPP). SPP's now require an active warranty so it may be challenging if you don't have one on any of your systems. Do you have any old ones hanging around in DVD or ISO format? If so, try loading it in that server and running it from Windows. It will hopefully drop all the best drivers in place for you without having to look everywhere. 

Here is an old one that should have your system included https://h20392.www2.hpe.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=spp_2015.10.0

If you don't have one then we can keep trying to locate the individual components.

thank you
i have active "Linked warranties" at this moment (for example, dl 360 gen9, not dl 160 gen 6).
when i go throw https://h20392.www2.hpe.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=spp_2015.10.0, and go to Service Pack for ProLiant download page on HPESC (http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_5a08f98fb4ea4698b52ba3d210) i get: Download details not available at this site (see attach 1.jpg).
