    If its a managed server who is it managed by ? are they restricting patch installation for example if its in a data centre  ?

    All the servers are managed by me and there is no restriction for the patch.

    Updating disk firmware is a bit different than other upgrades since the disk stores the new firmware but defers install until a reboot. Do you get problems with installing other updates with SMH/version control?

    I normally just run the ProLiant Support Pack install on one machine, enter another machine as target and push it out that way.
