HPE Service Pack For ProLiant 2017.07.2 (HPE SPP)
HPE has released “HPE Service Pack For ProLiant 2017.07.2 (HPE SPP)” for ProLiant servers and it’s available for download now. 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 Smart Update Manager (SUM) as the deployment tool and is tested on all HPE ProLiant Gen9 and Gen10 servers as defined in the Service Pack for ProLiant Server Support Guide found at www.hpe.com/servers/spp/documentation.
*HPE has released SPP 2017.07.2 as a replacement for SPP 2017.07.1 due to a recently discovered Software/Firmware issue with the HPE QLogic NX2 10/20GbE Multifunction Drivers for VMware vSphere 6.0/6.5, version 2017.07.07 ([email protected]). Please see the Customer Advisory for more details.
Important Notes Of HPE Service Pack For ProLiant 2017.07.2 (HPE SPP)
Customer Advisory: Use of SPPs v2017.07.2 or later with HPE OneView requires an update to a version of OneView released in July 2017 or later (3.10, 3.00.08, 2.00.09 or later). Read this Customer Advisory for more details. Before installing this SPP on Synergy, please review the information at www.hpe.com/downloads/synergy.
In order to reduce the frequency at which servers need to be updated, HPE has changed the packaging and delivery of the SPP. There are now two types of SPPs:
- 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).
The 2017.07.2 SPP is a production SPP and contains components for the Gen9 and Gen10 server platforms. Components for the G7 and Gen8 server platforms will be available in the Post-Production SPPs.
Due to a recently discovered Software/Firmware issue with the HPE QLogic NX2 10/20GbE Multifunction Drivers for VMware vSphere 6.0/6.5, version 2017.07.07([email protected]), HPE has chosen to withdraw the affected VMWare drivers from all deliverables that include them. Replacement drivers and a Customer Advisory are expected to be published soon. HPE apologizes for this inconvenience.
The 2017.07.2 SPP release supports the ProLiant and Synergy Gen9 and Gen10 server platforms. It also provides support for the following operating systems:
- vSphere 6.0 U3
- vSphere 6.5 for Gen9 Server Platforms (only)
