Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) Version 2017.04.0

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

Important Notes:

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.

Release Summary:

This release provides support for the following Linux operating systems:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP2

This is the last SPP to contain updates for the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 32-bit
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 32-bit

See the Service Pack for ProLiant Release Notes for more information.  See the Service Pack for ProLiant Server Support Guide for information on supported HPE servers.

    any mirrors for this SPP. HP Absolutely screws everyone over who buys this hardware used. I have mine (DL380 G7) as a gaming Rig now, but to update specific components (I.E. security updates for my BIOS?!?!) you have to have a service contract. im looking for 2017.07.2 if anyone has it

    mediafire links are removed. Any alternative method?

  3. JoGu says:

    Hi, any chance to have it back up? Having a Gen8 2017.07.2 does not help 🙁

    Have a look at those 2 torrents:

    md5sum is e9e85699bc1ebacfcb3d79def4124854 (same as on HP Site).

    The Hot Fix Supplemental Bundle 2017.04.1 can be found here:

    md5sum: 1fdb541a8575cd1cfe07fc58c7cfb1c4

    I ran both on my G6 servers but no updates were found (he previous update round was in December 2016). I even had more recent iLO firmware than on the SPPs.

    BTW, iLO updates can be found here:

    Does anyone have links to the 2017.04.01 release, I have a DL580 G7 that needs all the firmware updated.

  9. Seth Balsam says:

    Thank you!

  10. Gareth says:

    Hi, We have a couple of DL360p GEN8 that we need to update the BIOS on but have no support contract from HP. Do you know where we can get the SSP that deals with GEN 8’s?

  11. Gareth says:


    We have a few DL360P GEN8’s that we need to update the BIO’s as they will only allow 2TB drive space and we have loaded them with 8 * 1TB drives. Do you know where I can get the SPP for a GEN8 please?

  12. Derek says:

    David, Can you provide CP028140.exe and CP028084.exe?

    I will paypal you funds for these.

  13. Derek says:

    I have 10 DL380 G7 and 10 DL580 G7 where all fans running and staying at 78%. HP want huge money for ‘entitled’ download and the two files to update the bios allegedly address fan issue from 2013 to 2015.

    Any ideas would help.

  14. zenny6377 says:

    Hi – is there a place to get the 2017.04.0 SPP (last production SPP for Gen8 DL380p) thanks

  15. zenny6377 says:

    Hi Davoud – thanks but that post seems to have links to newer SPP versions, none of which seem to have BIOS updates for the DL380p G8 (I’m stuck at a 2014 version)

  16. zenny6377 says:

    I found a link to 2017.04.0 – thanks, on another note does anyone know what the latest bios date is for the DL380p G8? thanks

    • Joao Alves says:

      Hi zenny6377,

      Can you please provide that Link for 2017.04.0?

      I’ve a ML350 G6 bought in second hand and that’s the last one that supports it, at least it’s what is said in HP documentation.
