NOTICE: The information in this document, including products and software versions, is current as of the Release Date. This document is subject to change without notice.

Release Date: 2011-08-08

DESCRIPTION

ProLiant servers booting to the HP Smart Update Firmware DVD 9.00 (or later) automatically bind the Network Interface Adapter (Eth0) to the 192.168.0.1 IP address. This bind is necessary to prevent the server from becoming non-responsive during PXE boot in the boot environment used on the Firmware DVD. Without a bind to an IP address, the server stops responding when the NIC loads and attempts to connect back to the PXE server.

Note: The assignment of IP address 192.168.0.1 cannot be changed because this is a dedicated address to be used with the HP Smart Update Firmware DVD Version 9.00 (or later). There is no customization available to alter the assignment of this IP address.

DETAILS

HP chose the IP address 192.168.0.1 because it is a non-routable address. The HP Smart Update Firmware DVD binds the Network Interface Adapter to the 192.168.0.1 IP address. Once the NIC is bound, the Smart Update DVD can be used.

To avoid possible IP address conflicts in the network, do not assign the IP address 192.168.0.1 to any server in the environment where the HP Smart Update Firmware DVD will be booted on a server. Servers are only affected when they boot from the HP Smart Update Firmware DVD ISO. Normal use of the DVD contents under an existing operating system is not affected.
