HPE Synergy Software Releases - Overview

HPE Synergy Software Releases are available for customers to download and use on products which are under an active HPE Warranty or an HPE Support Agreement.

HPE Synergy Software Releases are comprised of HPE Synergy Management combinations (a versioned set of Composer and Image Streamer software) and HPE Synergy Custom SPPs. Combinations of specific releases have been developed, tested, and released together. For Composer and Image Streamer, combinations are provided for download including: firmware updates to existing images and complete images for recovery (if reimaging of the system is required).

Upgrading to HPE Synergy 4.20.02 or 5.00.x

IMPORTANT:

Before performing an HPE OneView update, Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends you use the HPE OneView Update Readiness Checker. The Update Readiness Checker is provided for HPE OneView users to evaluate the health of their HPE OneView appliance for a set of known conditions before proceeding with an appliance update. To download the checker, go to https://www.hpe.com/support/ov-urc.

For information on upgrading to HPE Synergy 4.20.02 or 5.00.x, see the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center page for the HPE Synergy Management combination.

IMPORTANT:

HPE Synergy Custom SPP 2019.12.20191219 contains iLO 5 version 2.11.

To update to iLO 5 version 2.10 or later, you must have a minimum iLO 5 version of 1.40. Otherwise, using this HPE Synergy Custom SPP to apply a server profile will display the following error:

Unable to update server firmware due to internal error.

To avoid this error, you can manually update the iLO 5 version to 1.40 or later, or update HPE OneView to 5.00.01 or later. For more information, see Customer Advisory a00094676.

IMPORTANT:

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has identified an extremely rare issue when updating the firmware on an HPE Virtual Connect (VC) SE 40Gb F8 Module for Synergy that may cause the Master VC module to stop responding to SNMP traffic. This issue occurs when SNMP operations (e.g., SNMP walks, SNMP discovery tasks, etc.) are performed against the Master VC module exactly when the firmware update is completing and the new subordinate is rejoining the Logical Interconnect (LI). For more information, see Customer Advisory a00095141.
