I have an HP ProLiant DL 370 server G6 which was used as a VM Ware server for a host of applications. The application are no longer needed so I removed the old virtual servers and loaded a new version of Win Server 2008 r2
I noticed a driver in Device Manager of the new server I loaded has a yellow question mark that says Base System Device
When I check the ID it states its a PCI card. I assume I download this driver network from HP? Do I use the software for VM or for Windows Server 2008r2?
Also does anyone have a trick to get external hard drives that have usb connection connected to a VM server?
I edited and added a USB connection in VM - I shutdown the PC - I connected the USB drive and turned it in- and rebooted the Server

Does the Windows Server 2008 R2 is now running as stand alone operating system on top of the physical box of HP DL 370 G6 ?
if that's a yes, then you need to download HP SPP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) Version 2015.10.0
Once you ahve downloaded the .ISO file, you can mount it or run it from any drive (burn to DVD or USB drive), to run the HP Smart Update Manager, from there it will automatically detects & install required driver & firmware updates.
