Update firmware with a server profile template


Privileges: Infrastructure administrator or Server administrator

  1. From the main menu, select SERVERS > Server Profile Templates, and then do one of the following:
    • Click Create server profile template in the master pane.

    • Select a server profile template in the master pane, and then select Actions > Edit.

  2. Select the firmware bundle for Firmware baseline.

    To install an older firmware version contained in the SPP, you must select the Force installation option to downgrade the firmware. You might want to install older firmware if the newer firmware already installed on the server is known to cause a problem in your environment, perhaps as noted in the Release Notes.


    Be aware that downgrading firmware can render an appliance unusable and might result in slower installation speeds. For example, if the iLO Firmware is downgraded to a previous version that does not use Rich Infrastructure Specification (RIS), the communication between Smart Update Tools and HPE OneView will break.

  3. To complete the update, do one of the following:
    • If this is a new template, click Create to create the server profile template.

    • If you are editing an existing template, click OK to update the server profile template.

  4. Verify that the new firmware baseline is listed in the details pane on the Server Profile Templates screen.
