I have HP DL360G7 server on which windows server 2016 has been installed.
I tried to find any HP management agent on the server but it seems that they are missing.
Could you tell me how to install HP system management home page and event notifier and also HP array configuration utility on this server.

You will need the latest HP ProLiant Support Pack  release from HPE for your server, and you will now also need a Login and Valid Account Support Agreement to Download the Software.

Your HPE G7 may still be in warranty, so you can login and download.

This is for the G7 (however the WIndows 2016 may not be supported on the G7)

http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/products/service_pack/spp/index.aspx?version=G7.1

for the G9 which does support 2016!

Most HPE utilities are still downloadable without a support contract, the SMH, SSA (replacement for ACU) and Smart Array Event Notification Service are all at https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/home/driverHome?pmasr=0&sp4ts.oid=4091411 . They're under 2012 R2 as 2016 isn't officially supported.

It's really only BIOS (and anything that contains them) that they won't let you have for free as they count that as an upgrade. [Actually most BIOS is now available due to security patches for meltdown/spectre etc.

andyalder, is it possible to give me direct download links for the mentioned components  in the provided by you HP web site. Is there any prerequisites that I need to do or install in order to get EventNotifier and SystemManagementHomePage to work., or just to install them?

Use the radio buttons on the left to select OS Win 2012 R2 and software, then there's only about 15 items in the list.

For email notification you have to configure email details, If you have a start menu installed it's under programs-HP utilities I think. Plus in control panel there's an applet to configure what to notify for but default is everything anyway.

Just to ask, if I want to use the SPP. Does the SPP update automatically hp management agents on the server, or the SPP only updates the drivers and firmware? Do I have an option for SPP to choose what I want to install , for exampe choose only HP management agents and not drivers and firmware.
If  the SPP can do the job automatically I think it will be the better option than downloading one by one HP agents.

Yes, you can select what you want to update and install, and it will also show what is missing.

We apply SPP to all HPE servers, after initial vanilla server build, so they have all the HPE components.
