Hi,

I have a HP DL380 G7 and need to upgrade the bios. Server is running ESXi 5.1

I need to enable AES but current bios doesn't have it.

What is the best way to do this?

I have the bios upgrade which is a .scexe file

Thanks

You will need to download the HP Firmware DVD from HP, insert the CDROM/DVDROM in the Server, and boot the server, the server boots from the CDROM and updates the firmware.

OR, you can use iLo and mount the ISO, and save burning a DVDROM.

You cannot update the firmware from with ESXi 5.1.

(the file you have is designed for Linux, and ESXi  is not Linux!)

All processors installable in your server support AES-NI, and HP BIOS does not allow to disable it.

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

There is no OS required.

The DVD includes a bootable Linux OS, to perform the DVD Firmware Upgrade.

You need to mount DVD (or convert it to USB and plug USB stick in server if you never connected iLO) and just reboot system and in ~10-20 minutes all firmware will be upgraded.
