HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 - How to update the drivers with ESXi 5.5 Installed

Hi,

I have a HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 rack server that needs it's drivers updated.  VMware ESXi 5.5 is installed on the server.  I don't know how to update the drivers on this server.

Could someone please instruct me on how to go about this?

Thanks

Are you using the correct version of OEM HP ESXi 5.5 downloaded from HP ?

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/software/vmware/esxi-image.html

This should not require any drivers for your server ?

If you need to apply updates, which update?

You need to transfer the update file to the server using WinSCP, and then login via SSH, and then type

esxcli software profile update -d /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/<update file>

It's similar process to my EE Article

but change the update file to the driver update

Hi,

Yes I'm using the correct version of OEM HP ESXi 5.5 downloaded from HP.

I was on the phone with VMware Support and they looked at the network drivers an indicated that I should upgrade them because they were such an old version.

Thanks

Okay, so which drivers did they suggest you use ?

HPs version is June 2014, so are there newer drivers since June 2014 ?

did they give you a link?

Do you have issues with your network interfaces ?

The procedure is still the same outlined above.
