September 10th, 2012

HP has released a new firmware version 4.1.450.7 of its Emulex OneConnect 10Gb Ethernet Controller which is used in HP G7 and G8 Blades.


This is a standalone image so not part of the HP Service Pack for ProLiant 2012.08.0 release which is unfortunate.

The new firmware release notes state the following:

Added support for the following operating systems:

  • RHEL 6.3

    4.1.450.7 is part of SPP 2012_08, I just did it 🙂

    So far so good, 12 blades done and stable for 24 hours …

    Updated 2 out of 4 Blades to firmware version 4.1.450.7 from 4.0.360.15. It was part of SP 2012.08, and now cannot enable NIC Teaming in ESXi 4.1 without IP HASH, or failover to the secondary NIC when it is enabled. Will have to rollback the firmware updates.
