I have an old HP DL 380 G5 server I got from work on which I have installed ESXi 6.0. I have a few different guest OSs running on it and am using it for testing several applications. I have increased the RAM on the server to 32 GB and it has been working reasonably well.
I am now thinking about upgrading the firmware(Raid controller, ILO, BIOs etc) on the server now and it seems the latest HP service pack doesn't support this specific model. I am not sure but I can't seem to get it to work.
I have tried the following: http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/products/service_pack/spp/index.aspx
I am looking for something that would work either from ESXi or an ISO from which I can boot and upgrade.
Update: I know the hardware is not supported any more, I just wanted to know if any updates are available from the past which I can still install to fix known issues. The firmware on this server was never updated, even when it was in production, so I want to give it a shot and see what happens. That's the whole point of having an old server to play around with!
