Updating SPP on Gen9 devices

I have some servers here and they are running on old SPP versions. They are systems like ProLiant ML350 (BIOS HP P92, 27-12-2015) and DL380 (BIOS HP P89, 27-12-2015) and many others. These two are at least installed with HP SPP 2016.04.0.

Another ProLiant DL380 Gen9 is running the BIOS version HP P89, 13-9-2016, SPP unknown at the moment.

I just took a new server in production and installed SPP 2018.03.0 on that server. I do want to bring the other servers up-to-date. However, when I look at the HPE SPP page, under the tab Documentation there is a table named "SPP Update Compatibility". It does say that I only can update to 2018.03.0 from SPP 2017.10.1,2017.07.2 or 2017.04.0.

My question now is, what will be my update path from older SPP versions, like 2016.04.0 (or older, or newer).

Re: Updating SPP on Gen9 devices

a supported path assumes you are at a supported SPP level, this would be SPP 2017.04 or newer as of now.

However, no steps needed.
procedd with SPP2018.03 for Gen9 systems.

Hope this helps!
