HPE has released Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and it’s available for download, if you have valid customer account, you can download it and update your server hardware firmware.
The Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) is a comprehensive systems software and firmware update solution, which is delivered as a single ISO image. This solution uses HP Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) as the deployment tool and is tested on all HPE ProLiant Gen9, Gen8 and earlier servers as defined in the Service Pack for ProLiant Server Support Guide found at
In order to reduce the frequency at which servers need to be updated, HPE is changing the packaging and delivery of the SPP.
Going forward, two types of SPPs will be released:
A single “Production SPP” that contains the firmware and drivers for the all of the production server generations, and
Multiple server generation specific “Post-Production SPPs” that contain the firmware and drivers for a specific post-production server generation (e.g. Gen8 only Post-Production SPP that contains the firmware and drivers for all of Gen8 server models).
When a server generation transitions to “Post-Production,” the firmware and drivers for that server generation are frozen, packaged together on a “Post-Production SPP,” and released. The “Post-Production SPP” is supported through the EOS (end of support) for that server generation, and all future firmware and driver updates are released as hot fixes. This eliminates the need for yearly updates.
The 2017.04.0 SPP is the last production SPP to contain components for the G7 and Gen8 server platforms. For additional information, please refer to Reducing Server Updates.
This release provides support for the following Linux operating systems:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP2
