Updating HPE Servers with SPP & iSUT

In my recent attempt to automate and get a better handle of some of the HPE servers in our fleet, I tried to use the HP SUM function of the SPP server remotely. If you're trying to patch a VMware host, especially a Gen10, you will need to make sure you download and configure the iSUT component on those servers from HP. I'll link to the two sites that I used to get a better handle of the steps necessary to proceed with the updates.

  1. The Sleepy Admins - HPE Gen10 SUM iSUT
  2. PLJDesigns - How to install iSUT on HPE Gen10 VMware Servers
From my research, it appears that the new VMware images from HPE already come with iSUT preloaded so if using a recent image, this might not be a requirements. If you're looking for the download links, you can find them for vSphere 6.5 and vSphere 6.7 here:
  1. VMware vSphere 6.5 - HPE Download Link
  2. VMware vSphere 6.7 - HPE Download Link
Nov 23, 2020 Edit - Found the github page from HPE for the iLO RESTful interface that contains a ton of good information.
