HP Service Pack for ProLiant 2017.07.1 (x86/x64) | 5.17 GB
The Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) is a comprehensive systems software and firmware update solution, which is delivered as a single ISO image. This post production SPP uses Smart Update Manager (SUM) as the deployment tool and contains updates for ProLiant Gen8 systems.
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 âProduction SPPâ that contains the firmware and drivers for the all of the production server generations, and
Multiple server generation specific âPost-Production SPPsâ 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 âPost-Production,â the firmware and drivers for that server generation are frozen, packaged together on a âPost-Production SPP,â and released. The âPost-Production SPPâ 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.
