What HPE specific drivers are you looking to update? If running CentOS 7.3 the drivers (NIC, disk controller, iLO, watchdog) are in the distribution.

You can use the HPE SDR (Software Delivery Repository) to get HPE drivers and tools, look at the SPP and the MCP information

Re: Cent OS 7 and HPE drivers

HPE does not release drivers specirfically for CentOS.  The RHEL driver we release can generally be used with CentOS.

What specific device(s) do you want to support with out of box driver(s)?

I don't think HP has a central repository for yum-type installations and updates. The DL380G9 drivers are in tar format and must be downoladed individually from 

http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=7271242&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4184

Usually inside the tar files you find rpm files and documents. You may be able to create your own local repository if you want to use yum or use yum or rpm with local rpm files..

Eventhough CentOS-7 is not listed in the supported OSes in the quickspecks, there are CentOS-7 specific drivers in the URL I included in my previous reply.

Yes there is a central repository to use native Linux tools like yum, apt, and zypper to access HP drivers, utilities and firmware

HPE Software Delivery Repository  http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/

"The Software Delivery Repository hosts yum and apt repositories for Linux-related software packages. Much of this content is also available from various locations at hpe.com in iso or tgz format, but if you would prefer to use your Linux-native software configuration manager, you may subscribe your systems to some or all of these repositories for quick and easy access to the latest rpm/deb packages from HPE."

Though not an extensive repository, it's good to know. Thanks

It contains the contents of the SPP, is something missing?

Re: Cent OS 7 and HPE drivers

Since the last HP-HEALTH version 10.70 that you can find under:

      https://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/repo/spp/2018.03.0/packages/

You can download the two following packages:

    hp-health-10.70-1846.6.rhel7.x86_64

    hp-snmp-agents-10.70-2962.5.rhel7.x86_64

and then install them: 

    yum install ./hp-health-10.70-1846.6.rhel7.x86_64.rpm hp-snmp-agents-10.70-2962.5.rhel7.x86_64.rpm

    /bin/systemctl restart hp-snmp-agents.service

and the hplog command work fine after!
