HP BladeSystem Firmware/Driver Matrix

With latest SPP and SUM5.0, HP is trying to make firmware management easier for customers. SPP is HP’s direction to have customers manage firmware/driver/software on Proliant servers from single DVD ISO.

SPP offers 3 documents: Contents Report, Server Support Guide and Release Notes. They cover all products and components in a very detailed way.

However, many times people just need a very quick table to pinpoint which version is included in latest SPP for the most important and popular components and sometimes we’d like to download firmware/driver of individual component. Another most commonly asked question is firmware/driver for G7 and Gen8 servers LOM and Flexible LOM.

I created this table trying to help people saving time on these questions. I’ll try my best to maintain it and we’ll see. We all know most of matrix table ended up with out-of-date info after some time.

I’d appreciate if you let me know any out-of-date or incorrect info you see. Any feedbacks are also welcomed. I read all feedbacks and will definitely improve my doc upon popular requests.

The table is created in .doc format as table functionality on blog is very limited. you can click HERE to download or just click the image below.
