Servers & Systems: The Right Compute

HPE OneView 6.3 enhances firmware and provisioning management

Read on for an inside look at how your business can benefit from the innovations introduced in the recent release of HPE OneView 6.3. 


Today, HPE announced the release of HPE OneView 6.3, enhancing the way customers manage their firmware on HPE servers. The recent innovations of HPE OneView 6.3 further enhance how HPE OneView delivers integrated IT infrastructure management that transforms compute, storage, and networking into software-defined infrastructure to automate task and accelerate your business.

HPE OneView 6.3 Update

In HPE OneView 6.3, customers will benefit from enhanced server management capabilities—delivering an improved firmware and provisioning management experience.  

Enhancing Firmware Update Management

HPE OneView 6.3 is bringing an easier way to notify customers of new content and allow them to evaluate and read about the content to decide when to download or when to skip an update. This new capability provides users the option to receive notifications when a new HPE Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) or HPE Synergy Service Pack (SSP) is released. Additional details are provided about the release to assist the customer to make an informed decision on updating—and to make it even easier to stay up-to-date, a direct link to the HPE portal to download the content is provided within HPE OneView.

To sum up this latest enhancement in firmware management, HPE OneView now enables customers to be notified, evaluate and update content all from within HPE OneView 6.3.

Simplifying Provisioning Management

With the recent release, we’ve also made some enhancements to the HPE OneView provisioning experience—improving infrastructure enablement in VMware vCenter, HPE 3PAR, HPE Primera and hypervisor cluster support.

HPE OneView and HPE OneView for VMware vCenter now support environments which require VMware vCenter datastore names and HPE OneView volume names to follow different naming standards—enabling users to name them independently.

  • The data-in-place upgrade from HPE 3PAR 9000 / 20000 to HPE Primera storage systems allows customers to easily restore the health of their server profiles—eliminating the need to recreate your server profiles after a data-in-place upgrade.
  • HPE ProLiant BladeSystem environments can now create, import, grow and perform rolling firmware updates on hypervisor clusters when no virtual connect networking exist.
  • These new provisioning capabilities streamline IT operations to improve staff productivity and increase the pace of introducing new technologies.
