HP SUM is an updater engine, which performs the update. The Service Pack for ProLiant (HP SPP) is the software package that contains the server components firmware and HP SUM to deploy it.

 

The following links provides the download page :

 

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?spf_p.tpst=swdMain&s...

 

You may use the above package for all generation c-Class blades.

 

You  may refer to the quick start guide for a detailed user guide for SPP:

 

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.BINARYPORTLET/public/kb/docDisplay/resource.proc...

 

A list of supported server is found in the following link:

 

http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/doc/p1822529277/v85395/SPP2013.02.0-ServerSupportGuide.pdf

 

The release notes provide more information about SPP

Re: HP Firmware update tools suggestion

 

 

The links provided are that of SPP 2013 .02.0 except for that of SPP download which is that of 2014.02.0

 

However, the documentation is that of former and that of latter has not been updated. Please revisit the HP Enterprise Information Library frequently. It is locatable at:

 

http://h17007.www1.hp.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/solutions/info-library/

 

 

Under section ‘Products and Solution’ select HP Smart Update and select the release notes for 2014 in the section beneath it.

 

 

Regards,

Hi Vijayasarathy,

 

Can you also please share the instructions and the caveats or the upgrade sequence, of which one can be done safely to avoid data loss and down time ?

 

Thanks,
