Re: ProLiant DL360p Gen8 server firmware

Hello @Kipper_Nate 

For firmware upgrade it is recommended to determine current FW levels and based on which upgrade path could be suggested accordingly. 

I see you are referring to a Gen8 server, last SPP (Service Pack for Proliant) released was back in 2018 (Gen8.1) 

For Gen8.1 SPP upgrade, recommended path is to ensure current FW levels as per SPP 2017.04.0,  2016.10.0

https://techlibrary.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/products/service_pack/spp/index.aspx?version=Gen8.1#!&tab=TAB4

Below link has content of SPP included in SPP 2016.10.0 & 2017.04.0

https://downloads.hpe.com/pub/softlib2/software1/publishable-catalog/p615636943/v138588/SPP_Gen8.1_Content_Notes.pdf

Below is link to HPE Information Library which has release notes and other reference links to SPPs for more information.

You could also content our support and they could help review Active Health System Log from server in question and advise upgrade path accordingly.

What wasn't made clear was that the SPP's only contain the firmwares as of 2017.

Further firmware updates were released in 2018/2019 since the SPP's to address Meltdown/Spectre vulnerabilities.

Available here (flagged as entitlement required but can be downloaded freely):

You'll find newer firmware for on other devices and iLO as well there too with a bit of poking about on the left side options.
