HP SIM 5.3, VCA 2.2.0.820 for Core 2008, VCA 2.1.10.801 for 2003 + VCRM 2.2 on 2003 Virtual Server

Morning All,

RE: HP SIM 5.3, VCA 2.2.0.820 for Core 2008, VCA 2.1.10.801 for 2003 + VCRM 2.2 on 2003 Virtual Server

I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction for a few things.

Versions listed above (initially), I'm having difficulty understanding the best way of deploying updated firmware for our ProLiant DL series and Blade P class servers.

I understand you can click the software link from SIM to VCA homepage then tick the boxes and click install. I also know you can deploy using the Deploy menu option in SIM, however using this method when I drill down to Windows Server 2008-64bit Core I get none of the firmware currently listed on the same servers VCA page? Have I missed something, should I be able to remote deploy using this feature? Also has anyone had success with schedules and reboots etc? Is it reliable in an enterprise environment?

Last small question I notice that the newer VCA 2.2+ I think has a "Automatically Install Minimum Dependencies" tick box, what's not clear is will this update at will if the baseline is changed and I can see no way of turning it off or checking/changing settings, ideas?

Many, many thanks in advance.
