hi guys

We have an issue with our server. It's an HP Proliant DL 380 Generation 8 server. The ethernet link keeps going down and so does the ILO. I want to update the firmware. There's nothing on the server itself. OS is Windows 2012 R2.

What do you download in order for the firmware to get updated? Is it the HP smart update manager?

Thanks
Yash

Amazing, thank you sir.

We do have a support contract from what I recall, but either way this will help massively.

Does this also help with the ILO do you think?
