Share Button

I’ve recently been made aware that an update on some HP Servers’ firmwares may simply break their mobos !!

The problem may be encountered (only) on certains servers while updating with SPP (Proliant Support Pack) or HPSUM (HP Smart Update Manager).

If you encounter these messages, it should indicate that the update will break your server

  • Unable to detect the network adapter in the ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU) or in the operating system.
  • The MAC address for the network adapter will change.

It does only concern HP servers with broadcom-based network adapters listed below :

  • HP NC373T PCIe Multifunction Gig Server Adapter
  • HP NC373F PCIe Multifunction Gig Server Adapter
  • HP NC373i Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapter
