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. Access to the software releases requires validation via the HPE Support Center.

HPE Synergy Software Releases are comprised of HPE Synergy Management combinations (a versioned set of Composer and Image Streamer software) and HPE Synergy Custom SPP's. Combinations of specific releases have been developed, tested, and released together.  For Composer and Image Streamer, a choice of paired release downloads is provided: firmware updates to existing images, and complete images for recovery (in the event that re-imaging of the system is needed).

ATTENTION

 

Updated System ROM firmware in HPE Synergy Custom SPP's 2019.03.20190718, 2019.03.20190612, 2019.03.20190514, and 2018.11.20190611 address potential issues of uncorrectable memory errors or boot time memory training issues with Intel Xeon Scalable Performance Bronze, Silver, and Gold 5x00 processors. (This issue is not unique to HPE servers.) HPE recommends that any customer experiencing a memory issue immediately update their system ROM before replacing any components. For more information, see Customer Notice a00072625en_us.

 

CAUTION -- HPE Synergy Custom SPP 2018.11.20190205 has an identified issue as described in Customer Bulletin a00069625en_us. It has been replaced by HPE Synergy Custom SPP 2018.11.20190405.

 

HPE Composer (HPE OneView) 4.20.01 has an identified issue as described in Customer Advisory a00068248en_us. This issue is less likely to occur with HPE Synergy Composer because fewer Synergy systems have the required number of drives to trigger the issue. This HPE Composer (HPE OneView) 4.20.01.01 release corrects the issue.
