I've inherited a DL360g9 and would like to upgrade all the firmware however it would appear I need an active warranty or support agreement covering Proliant servers - which I no longer have. Would anyone be able to download the Proliant SPP for a G9 server please? Latest I could find was Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) Version 2019.12.0.


I don't think I'm breaking any rules asking this?

It is in Japanese, but quite easy to extract the relevant information even without Google Translate :)

Be carefull . If you run into issues you could be stuffed without warranty/carepack support .


HP Firmware updates can break your server . Yes that can happen , even on new servers (3x in the past 3 months)
Raid firmware updates can make the RAID card incompatible with the older MB firmware (had that happen)


If its working 100% as is .....

Yeah thanks for that. Not without its risks but in this case all went well. I had some errors from the RAID controller regarding the write back cache which this update seems to have fixed. Now that is working I think I will leave it alone.

HP / HPE have pay-walled their firmware behind support contracts for quite a number of years now.
