  • Privileges: Infrastructure administrator

  • Create and download a backup file before updating the appliance.
  • Before you start the appliance update, ensure that other users are not logged in to the appliance and no one logs in during the update.

  1. Download the image file to your local computer. Image files for appliance updates are available here: http://www.hpe.com/info/hpeoneview/updates.

    Select an image file that is compatible with your appliance platform.


    When you download the appliance update file, a link to the update HPE OneView Release Notes appears in the download dialog box. Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that you click the link to read, save, and print the information for future reference. Once the download starts, you cannot access the link again.

  2. Read the HPE OneView Release Notes to learn about the update. See the HPE OneView Installation Guide to determine version-specific requirements. See the HPE OneView Support Matrix to ensure that the selected version is appropriate to install on the appliance.
  3. From the main menu, select Settings and do one of the following:
    • Click Update appliance in the Appliance panel.

    • Click Appliance on the Settings screen, and select Actions > Update appliance.

  4. To select an image file and upload from your local computer to the appliance, do one of the following:
    • Drag the image file from a folder on your local computer and drop it in the box on the Update Appliance screen. Older versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer do not support this method.
    • Click Browse, browse to the image file, and select it.

  5. To initiate the image file upload, click Upload and install or Upload only.
    • To install the update directly after the upload completes, click Upload and install.

    • To upload the image file now for later installation, click Upload only. Return to the Update appliance screen and use the Update from uploaded image option when you are ready to perform the update.

    The image file is validated as part of the upload. If it is incompatible with the appliance or otherwise cannot be installed, it is deleted from the appliance.

  6. Click to view the End User License Agreement and Written Offer. Review the terms and accept them to continue with the update.
  7. Click Update to start the update process.
  8. View the status and progress of the update with the progress bar.
  9. After the appliance resumes activity, view its associated messages by accessing the Activity screen, locating the Update appliance task, and clicking it.
  10. Verify the operation by examining the firmware version and date in the Appliance panel screen details.

If the update is successful, the appliance restarts. After restarting, the appliance returns to the login screen.

If the installation fails, the appliance reverts to its previous state, and then restarts.

The restart does not disrupt the operation of the systems under management, but it does close the management console.
