December HP ProLiant VMware Firmware and Software Recipe

A few days ago HP released their December 2012 “recipe” for ProLiant┬ádriver and firmware versions which have been tested and blessed for usage with VMware ESXi. Keeping your firmware up to date is very important, as updates often address bugs that you may run into. However, you can’t just randomly update firmware piece meal and hope that it is supported. You can use the HP Service Pack for ProLiant to help automate the update process, and install supported bundles. But sometimes HP releases interim firmware updates, so it’s good to check the support recipe to verify what HP has tested it with.

You can find the full December 2012 PDF with all the supported firmware here. The document covers the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) 2012.10.0. Hopefully you re running ESXi 5.0 U1, U2, or ESXi 5.1, as those are the only supported versions with this firmware. Still in the stone ages with 4.x? Upgrade! ­čÖé

@Loren: It’s not out yet, but in the works. Got ahead of the game just a bit.
