Re: HP SUM 6.2.0 is now available for download

When will there be an executable to run hpsum local interactive on Windows Server Core installations?

 

Havind to depend on a browser to provision a server is useless ...

Hello,

 

is it normal that when trying to create a custom baseline, you're not able to choose Windows drivers?

I've just tried to build one but only firmware are listed...

 

Thanks and regards,

Ville

i had the same problem... in my case the "mistake" was that i selected some devices because we don't want to upgrade our fibrechannel-components - but as soon as you select a device you won't get drivers or software - even when "both" is selected -.-
