Firmware Downgrade Options

Hello,

When you try to downgrade a firmware using SUM you get the following options:

- Downgrade Firmware & Software

- Downgrade & Rewrite  Firmware & Software 

What is the difference between downgrade and rewrite?

What is meant by software here?

Thanks

Re: Firmware Downgrade Options

Hello ,

What is the difference between downgrade and rewrite?

Downgrade means : Lower version from the current version installed 

Rewrite means : Overwrite the firmware 

Software means: There are so many software listed in the proliant server. That is why they have mentioned software.

Thanks

Hello,

The term 'software' in SUM (or SPP) refers to HPE Softwares, which are the utilities and applications released by HPE. These are released to enable specific functionalities, for example: the Smart Storage Administrator for the RAID Controllers OR SMH that provides users to  be able to monitor the server from the host OS.

Re: Firmware Downgrade Options

Hi 

Downgrade will allow you to downgrade the firmware/software from the Higer Version to lower versions.
Whereas Rewrite will allow you to upgrade/downgrade the firmware/software even if the server has same version is in the package. (Eg: If a component is already at v2.33 and if the SPP package has v2.33, it will rewrite this again on the component)
