Firmware and BIOS are out of date.
Christian, When can we take the host down for the upgrades? It will take between 30 to 60 minutes, since we'll be running the offline upgrades booting off the HP SPP DVD.
Yes, go ahead :) The host isn't used right now due to the outage.
I spent endless hours trying to upgrade the BIOS and everything failed. Since this runs ESX, I can't run the executable that we usually do on RHEL and update the BIOS. I tried booting off of the Service Pack for Proliant DVD, the second option, but it just doesn't want to work. It says that there are no upgrades available for the system, which is not right. There is a hidden shell that I've used before to do upgrades that failed automatically, but when I try and initiate it, it also fails opening. It just flickers on the screen and then disappears. I tried to boot off a CentOS live image and run the equivalent RHEL executable, but it didn't work either. Last resort is to try the USB Key method. I created one, sitting at my desk, and we can try booting the system from it. It should run the BIOS upgrade directly. DCOps, please make this happen next week and let me know how it goes. Thanks!

Failed to read the usb drive, booting from the usb drive "command or filename not recognized" Will try again Monday.
We tried the boot override option available, but the os fails to load from the USB stick "command or filename not recognized" :dumitru will file a ticket with HP to get this solved
Case ID with HP 4645068528 filed.
TIL: there's another method to upgrade the BIOS. One can create an ISO image out of the USB Key utility. Ran it, and upgraded the system ROM.
