IP, SUM, SPP... I'm a bit confused!

Hello,

I need to keep two gen8 servers up to date, but I'm a bit confused by the varoious technologies and tools available.

I installed Smart Update Manager (SUM) 8.5.7.
Then I downloaded Service Pack for Proliant (SPP) v.Gen8.1 (6 nov 2017) and used it as baseline for SUM.

This way I've been able to install a bounch of updates.

Unfortunately, the latest SPP for Gen8 servers is quite old, so many updates are not included.

As far as I remember, many years ago there was a tool that used to download updates directly from ftp.hp.com.

Is something similar still available?

Thank you!

You can go to spp.hpe.com/custom and download the SPPGen8.1 + Hotfix-Bundle. This is more current.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hello 

I think your refring to PSP (proliant support pack), but is not available after HPE G7 servers, from Gen 8 onwords only SPP is available.

You can go to spp.hpe.com/custom and download the SPPGen8.1 + Hotfix-Bundle. This is more current.

or you can download the respective BIOS & firmwares with individual link based on the installed OS from HPE web site.

Thanks & Regards,
