Beginning with the ProLiant Support Pack for Microsoft® Windows® version 7.90 or later, the HP Smart Update Manager utility enables you to deploy PSP software and firmware components from a single, easy-to-use interface that is supported in Windows® environments. This utility enables legacy support of existing software and firmware components while simplifying the overall deployment process. It is no longer necessary to run the SETUP executable files (SETUPC.EXE, SETUPEX.EXE, and SETUP.EXE). HP Smart Update Manager utility provides this functionality. The utility also provides installation logic and version control that automatically check for dependencies, installing only the correct updates for optimal configuration.
With HP Smart Update Manager version 3.2.0 and later, the storage location for the persistent data (Hosts and Groups) has changed. Persistent data entered with earlier versions of HP Smart Update Manager is automatically moved to a new location the first time you run HP Smart Update Manager version 3.2.0 and later. Then, the data no longer exists for use with earlier versions of HP Smart Update Manager. This process occurs only once. If an earlier version of HP Smart Update Manager is run after the persistent data is moved, and new persistent data is entered, the persistent data is not moved to the new storage location when you run HP Smart Update Manager version 3.2.0 and later.
