- Added online deployment of a select set of firmware components to systems running VMware ESXi 5.x (that means you can now deploy Smart Components through HP SUM!)
- Support for new hardware devices and OS versions
- Support for PXE booting the SPP ISO
- Updated HP Smart Update Manager (SUM) to version 5.3.5
The latest versions of the HP customized installation ISOs are available for ESXi 5.0 U2 and ESXi 5.1. As usual they do not include the latest ESXi patch level. For instructions on how to build a custom ISO with the latest VMware patch level and the latest HP stuff please see this blog post.
I have updated my HP & VMware Links page to include the new releases.
