This component provides and installs an updated version of firmware for the iLO 4 Management Processor allowing for continued management support of your Server.

Prerequisites:

FIRMWARE DEPENDENCY:

  The addition of IPv6 support for iLO scripting interfaces requires the use of new versions of several iLO utilities.
  Customers using previous versions of these utilities must upgrade to the new versions:

  • HPQLOCFG 1.0 (replaces CPQLOCFG)
  • HP Lights-Out XML Scripting Sample 4.2.0 bundle
  • HPONCFG 4.2.0
  • LOCFG.PL 4.20 (included in the HP Lights-Out XML Scripting Sample 4.2.0 bundle)
  • HPLOMIG 4.2.0 (upgrade HPLOMIG before installing this version of iLO 4)

To ensure the integrity of your download, HP recommends verifying your results with this MD5 Checksum value:

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is not required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:


Install the firmware using one of these options:

  • Run the Component on the host to be updated.
    The component will update the iLO 4 firmware and reset the iLO 4 processor.

  •  Extract the firmware from the component.  This will place the firmware image file, iLO4_yyy.bin (where yyy represents the firmware version) in the target directory.  You now have these options:
    • Login to iLO 4, navigate to the Update Firmware page, and update the firmware from there.
    • Use the HP Lights-Out Configuration Utility, CPQLOCFG, and RIBCL/XML scripts to update iLO 4 across the network.
    • Use the HP Online Lights-Out Configuration utility, HPONCFG, and RIBCL/XML scripts to update iLO 4 from the supported host OS.
    • Use the Directory Migration Utility, contained in the HP Directories support for Management Processors, available under Software and Drivers on the iLO 4 downloads page from hp.com.  The Windows utility supports  network discovery of lights-out processors, import/export, as well as bulk firmware update, and does not require directory migration.

  • HPQLOCFG 1.0 (replaces CPQLOCFG)
  • HP Lights-Out XML Scripting Sample 4.2.0 bundle
  • HPONCFG 4.2.0
  • LOCFG.PL 4.20 (included in the HP Lights-Out XML Scripting Sample 4.2.0 bundle)
  • HPLOMIG 4.2.0 (upgrade HPLOMIG before installing this version of iLO 4)

To ensure the integrity of your download, HP recommends verifying your results with this MD5 Checksum value:

bd8c04b4297f959c68529e0452a8666c cp021803.exe

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is not required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:


Install the firmware using one of these options:

  • Run the Component on the host to be updated.
    The component will update the iLO 4 firmware and reset the iLO 4 processor.

  •  Extract the firmware from the component.  This will place the firmware image file, iLO4_yyy.bin (where yyy represents the firmware version) in the target directory.  You now have these options:
    • Login to iLO 4, navigate to the Update Firmware page, and update the firmware from there.
    • Use the HP Lights-Out Configuration Utility, CPQLOCFG, and RIBCL/XML scripts to update iLO 4 across the network.
