Installing HP Management Agents ONLY

Hi there,
I've been tasked with updating the HP Management Agents on several hundred servers. Can you please tell me how I can update the HP Management Agents ONLY. I've been asked not to update any drivers, firmware etc. - JUST THE MANAGEMENT AGENTS. I can't find a way to do this via S.I.M (v5.3). Does this need to be done from each server? What's the process please? Can I do this from SIM?
Thanks very much for your time,
Scott Gordon

Re: Installing HP Management Agents ONLY

That's not really the best approach. The HP Agents are part of the PSP which are a tested bundle. Installing Agents that are more recent than the drivers can have unpredictable results.
Also, keeping firmware up to date is also a benefit. There have been a couple issues recently where the latest drivers have caused issues when installed on servers with old firmware.
And yes, the PSP is installed per server, but it can be pushed, using HP SIM, to a number of servers as a scheduled task.
