HP Service Pack for
ProLiant
HP Service Pack for ProLiant is an enhanced, re-packaging of ProLiant
systems software and firmware, but is still based on the rich legacy of
ProLiant Support Packs (PSPs) and HP Smart Update Firmware DVD that are
originally found in the Insight Foundation suite for ProLiant. It is a
comprehensive systems software and firmware release offered as a tested
solution on all ProLiant servers supported by Insight Foundation version
8.70. It evolves beyond separate installation of HP PSPs and the HP Smart
Update Firmware DVD by providing a single image that combines both of
these products. It offers combined firmware and systems software packaging
and improved processes for drivers, utilities, agents, non agents, and other
utilities that are required to keep pace in today's rapidly expanding
technology infrastructure.
Main or base releases for HP Service Pack for ProLiant are planned
approximately 3 times a year, but look for interim update releases that will
capture hot fixes released between main releases. HP Service Pack for
ProLiant is supported on all HP ProLiant SL/ML/DL 100, 300, 500, 700, and
900 servers and BladeSystems series servers that are supported with Insight
Foundation version 8.70 and will supersede and replace Insight Foundation.
It is downloadable from: www.hp.com/go/server/service_packs/updates as a
web only release and is not available on media.
The first release of HP Service Pack for ProLiant is Version 2011.06.0. It
contains the first comprehensive collection of firmware and system software
components, all tested together that include drivers, agents, non-agents,
utilities, firmware packages for servers, controllers, storage, blades,

Its Media Kit (contains 2 SmartStart CDs, the Firmware DVD, and the
Management DVD) will continue to ship with all supported ProLiant
G7 or earlier BTO servers until the last supported server is no longer
shipping.
The Media Kit will not be updated past version 8.70.
ProLiant G7 or earlier CTO servers are able to order the Media Kit
with the understanding that the media is not updated. Please check

NOTE: Each 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter requires a minimum of 2GB of server

NOTE: Only (2) 10 Gigabit Ethernet mezzanine cards can be installed in the BL685c
G7 at the same time.
NOTE: Each 10 Gigabit Either adapter supports linking at 1000Mbps or 10000Mbps
when not connected to a Flex-10 enabled module and will link with all current 1Gb
switches at 1Gb.
NOTE: The ROM Based Setup Utility (RBSU) feature allows for the configuring of a
FlexFabric Adapter to any of the supported protocols. For example iSCSI to FCoE
(Fibre Channel over Ethernet). Note that a HP Virtual Connect profile takes
precedence over the setting in this menu. Also, some FlexFabric Adapters may require
that network boot be enabled in order to configure the protocol. If the protocol is
configured without enabling network boot with certain FlexFabric Adapters, the
protocol may not take effect. Once the protocol has taken effect on the first boot after
configuring this option, network boot may be disabled if desired.

Memory
NOTE: Memory configurations listed do not apply to "Factory Integrated Models".
DDR3 Memory Population Guidelines
For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines, please use the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool:
www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator
Some DIMM installation guidelines are summarized below:
For the HP ProLiant BL685c G7 server blade with thirty-two (32) memory slots:
There are four (4) channels per processor; sixteen (16) channels per server
There are two (2) DIMM slots for each memory channel; thirty-two (32) total slots.
Memory channel 1 consists of the two (2) DIMMs that are furthest from the processor
Memory channel 4 consists of the two (2) DIMMs that are closest from the processor
A minimum of two (2) DIMMs per processor are required
DIMM slots that are white should be populated first
Do not install DIMMs if the corresponding processor is not installed
If only two (2) processors are installed in a four (4) CPU system, only half of the DIMM slots are available
To maximize performance, balance the total memory capacity between all installed processors
To maximize performance, balance the total memory capacity on any given processor across the memory channels
You may only have up to eight (8) ranks installed per channel
You may install up to two (2) quad-rank DIMMs per channel
If mixing DIMM voltage is a requirement, please note that the DIMMs will run at 1.5V since all 1.35V are capable of
supporting 1.5V operations
When running virtualization software, a minimum of two (2) DIMMs per processor are required. Populate DIMM sockets 1A
and 5B for each processor socket populated.

Memory
If you do mix DIMM speeds, the memory bus will default to the minimum clock rate of all DIMMs in the system - even if the
slower DIMM is on the other processor
If you install 1x 1066MHz DIMM in channel 1 and 1x 1333MHz DIMM in channel 2, the maximum speed will be 1066MHz
If you install 1x 1066MHz DIMM in channel 1 and 7x 1333MHz DIMMs with 1 DIMM Per Channel (DPC) in each of the other
channels, the maximum speed will be 1066MHz
References to the above MHz speeds are for the various speeds of DDR3 DIMMs; 1333 refers to DDR3-1333, etc.

Configuration Tool: www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator
NOTE: A minimum of two (2) DIMMs per processor are required.
NOTE: Kits described as PC3L include Low Power DIMMs. For more information on
ProLiant Energy Efficient Features, see: www.hp.com/go/proliant-energy-efficient
NOTE: Each processor memory bus will operate at up to 1333 MHz with either one
quad-rank (QR) or two single-rank/dual-rank (SR/DR) DIMMs per processor memory
channel and 1066 MHz with up to two QR or one QR and one SR/DR DIMMs per
processor memory channel with standard voltage (1.5V, PC3) DIMMs. Memory bus
will operate one speed slower when low voltage (1.35V, PC3L) memory is installed.
Memory bus speeds may be further limited by the speed of the memory used as well.
