Selecting components to install

When the discovery process is complete, the Select Items to be Installed screen appears. The Select Items to be Installed screen displays information about which components are available for installation on your system and enables you to select or deselect components to install.

Select Items to be Installed

The Select Items to be Installed screen includes the following sections:

When updating installation for some but not all NIC components, select the devices to be updated in the window that appears. If the NIC firmware listed for the device does not have a version, you cannot add that firmware to the device using HP Smart Update Manager.

When multiple hardware devices such as hard drives or array controllers exist in a single server, HP Smart Update Manager lists each device only once. If the devices have different firmware versions, then the versions are listed from earliest to latest in a range. When multiple instances of the firmware are available for installation, the instances are listed from latest to earliest. If necessary, all hardware device firmware is flashed to the selected version.

The Select Items to be Installed screen also includes the following buttons:

The component selection pane in the Select Items to be Installed screen is divided into sections, which might vary depending on your system. These sections include the following headings:

No Device Driver Installed

Multi-session installation appears on the Source Selections screen under certain combinations of dependencies between the components selected for installation.

If all of the above conditions are true, then HP Smart Update Manager detects it and a notification to reboot appears in order to continue the installation. All installable components appear in the original update list, but only the components shown before the notification is installed. You must reboot to complete the installation and then restart HP Smart Update Manager to continue the installation process.
