cannot update network driver on DL380 G5

Hi

When I try to install new driver (dated feb 2009)(ver 4.6.17) it will fail with error

HP Virtual Bus Device installation requires a newer version. Version 4.6.16.0 is required.

What should I do now?

I have just run into the same problem as well on a DL385 G5p server. Hopefully someone knows the answer.

Re: cannot update network driver on DL380 G5

I found the solution by doing a google search on "4.6.16.0". This allowed me to download the older version of the driver, in my case for Server 2003 x64 - cp009682.exe.

After installing this version I was able to install the newer 4.6.17 version successfully. Looks like HP did not fully QA this new driver installing against a fresh SmartStart 8.15 PSP installation.

For Windows 2003 x86.

Download and install this driver prior to installing version 4.6.17.

Had to apply this prior to running current driver 4.6.17

Thanks Frank. That fixed a miniport driver issue as well (required before install of Net Config utility).

Re: cannot update network driver on DL380 G5

I am having the same problems. The solution HP offers (installing 4.6.16.0 first) is resulting in an BSOD for me.

Re: cannot update network driver on DL380 G5

Just in case HP reads this - although you can work around this isse, it's absolutely rediculous that my admins now have to manually load a particular driver version before running 8.20 or higher on a machine already running 8.15.

Re: cannot update network driver on DL380 G5

Meanwhile i received the solution from HP.
It was simply disconnecting the second server wich is standing by in an sort of an cluster.

The data send between the clustered servers was preventing the update.

Re: cannot update network driver on DL380 G5

Hi,

in my case it works with installing 4.6.16.0 and then the newer driver versions too.

Thank You!
