HP Service Pack for ProLiant 2014.06

This posting is ~5 years years old. You should keep this in mind. IT is a short living business. This information might be outdated.

I’m a bit late, but HP released a new version of their HP Service Pack for ProLiant in June 2014. This version of the SPP supersedes the version 2014.02.0(B). This release adds support for HPs new 20 GbE adapter

and contains new firmware (v4.20b) for HP BladeSystem c-Class Virtual Connect, 4/8Gb 20-port and 8Gb 24-port FC components. HP also added the following firmware and software components to this release:

  • HP ProLiant Converged Network Utility for Windows Server 2008
  • HP ProLiant Converged Network Utility for Windows Server x64 Editions
  • Online ROM Flash Component for Windows – HP ProLiant XL220a Gen8 v2 (P94) Servers
  • HP ProLiant Converged Network Utility for Linux x86_64
  • HP ProLiant Converged Network Utility for Linux x86
  • Online ROM Flash Component for Linux – HP ProLiant XL220a Gen8 v2 (P94) Servers
  • Online ROM Flash Component for VMware ESXi – HP ProLiant XL220a Gen8 v2 (P94) Servers
  • HP Firmware Flash for Emulex Fibre Channel Host Bus and Converged Network Adapters – VMware 5.0/5.1
  • HP Firmware Flash for Emulex Fibre Channel Host Bus and Converged Network Adapters for VMware vSphere 5.5
  • HP Firmware Flash for QLogic Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters – Vmware
  • HP Firmware Flash for QLogic Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters for VMware vSphere 5.5

This release of the SPP is the last release, that will support ProLiant G5 (and earlier) models, as also the last release that will contain support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5). Needless to say that HP fixed CVE-2014-0224 with this release. The SPP 2014.06 includes HP SUM 6.4.1.

HP marked the following updates as critical updates. An update is strongly recommended:

  • HP BladeSystem c-Class Virtual Connect Firmware, Ethernet plus 4/8Gb 20-port and 8Gb 24-port FC Edition Component for Windows
  • HP ProLiant Dynamic Smart Array RAID Controller Driver for Windows Server 2008
  • HP ProLiant Dynamic Smart Array RAID Controller Driver for Windows 2008 x64 Editions
  • HP ProLiant Dynamic Smart Array RAID Controller Driver for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and Microsoft Windows 2012 R2 x64 Editions
