HP Server ROM HP ROM (Read Only Memory) is now digitally signed using HP\'s Corporate Signing Service. This signature is verified before the flash process starts, reducing accidental programming and preventing malicious efforts to corrupt system ROM.

HP ROM provides for essential initialization and validation of hardware components before control is passed to the customer-installed operating system. The ROM also provides the capability of booting from various fixed media (HDD, CD-ROM) and removable media (USB), to continue operation to the operating system.

HP ROM performs very early configuration of the video controller, to allow monitoring of initialization progress via an attached monitor. If configuration or hardware errors are discovered during this early phase of hardware initialization, suitable messages are now displayed on the connected monitor. Additionally, these configuration or hardware errors are logged to the Integrated Management Log (IML) to assist in diagnosis.

HP\'s ProLiant ROM is used to configure the following:
  • Processor and chipset status registers
  • System memory, memory map, and memory initialization
  • System hardware configuration (Integrated PCI devices and optional PCIe cards).
  • Customer-specific BIOS configuration (using the HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU).

NOTE: For further information, please refer to HP\'s RBSU (ROM based setup utility) user guide:

ProLiant DL servers are primarily connected to power distribution units (PDUs) in data center racks and now ship standard with a PDU 6-foot C-14 to C13 power cord (A0K02A). If a user wishes to power a ProLiant DL server using a 110V receptacle (NEMA-15), the 6-foot NEMA 5-15 to C13 power cord must be ordered separately (AF556A). See Power Cords section for Worldwide Power Cord options.


Power Specifications To review typical system power ratings use the HP Power Advisor which is available via the online tool located at URL:

NOTE: Power Specification and Technical Content for supported power supplies can be found at:

Common Slot Power Supply

NOTE: Mixing of power supplies in the same server is not supported. All power supplies inside a server must be exactly the same model. Mixing Gold, Platinum, and Platinum Plus certified power supplies is not supported.


HP\'s Common Slot (CS) power supplies allow for commonality of power supplies across a wide range of ProLiant and Integrity servers, as well as HP Storage solutions, and are designed to provide the highest power supply efficiency without degrading system performance. HP CS power supplies are tested by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and certified through the ECOS 80 Plus power supply program. HP CS power supply options provide efficiency ratings of up to 94% (80 Plus Platinum) and are available in three power output options - 460W, 750W, and 1200W - allowing the customer to "right-size" a power supply for their specific server configuration. All HP Common Slot power sources are UL, CE Mark Compliant, hot-plug and support redundant configurations.

NOTE: Mixing of power supplies in the same server is not supported. All power supplies must be of the same output and efficiency rating. If non-matched power supplies are inserted you will get errors and operation will fail.

HP CS Platinum Plus power supplies are required when enabling HP\'s Power Discovery Services, a solution that creates an automated, energy-aware network between IT systems and facilities. This allows your company to reclaim millions of dollars in wasted power capacity and downtime costs across data centers. For more information on HP\'s Power Discovery Services, go to:

It is highly recommended that you use the HP Power Advisor in defining the "Right-Size" power supply for your needs. HP Power Advisor can be accessed at:

NOTE: The 80 PLUS program is a unique forum that unites electric utilities, the computer industry, and consumers in an effort to bring energy efficient technology solutions to the marketplace. 80 Plus independently tests power supply efficiency and publicly posts the results on

Redundant Power: Optional (1+ 1 or n+n redundant) power supplies can be purchased through power supply option kits (see Power Supplies for part numbers).

NOTE: Power Specification and Technical Content for supported power supplies can be found at:

On System Management HP iLO Management Engine

HP iLO Management Engine is a comprehensive set of embedded management features supporting the complete lifecycle of the server, from initial deployment, through ongoing management, to service alerting and remote support. HP iLO Management Engine comes standard on all HP ProLiant Gen8 servers. The HP iLO Management Engine portfolio includes:

  • HP iLO: The HP iLO (Integrated Lights-Out) management processor is the core foundation for the HP iLO Management Engine
  • HP Agentless Management: Provides built in server health monitoring and alerting capability without OS agents, that starts working the moment a power cord and an Ethernet cable are connected.
  • HP Active Health System: Always on, continuous monitoring for increased stability and shorter downtimes; 100% configuration history; Health and service alerts and easy export and upload to Service and Support.
  • HP Intelligent Provisioning: Lets customers provision and configure a single server without any separate media. No more SmartStart CDs or Smart Update Firmware DVD are needed.
    • To start Intelligent Provisioning:
      • Press the F10 key during the ProLiant Gen8 server boot process (also known as power on self test or POST).
      • Please go to the Intelligent Provisioning website at for additional information and to view usage videos.
      • Use the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) at to get firmware and software updates.
  • HP iLO Mobile App: Enables the ability to access, deploy, and manage your server anytime from anywhere from select smartphones and mobile devices. For additional information please visit:

HP Insight Management HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP)

HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and HP Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) version 5 provide a new, comprehensive approach to firmware and system software maintenance. Together they provide better operating stability and ensure maximum uptime. The SPP will be updated at a predictable cadence, typically coinciding with new HP server hardware launches. By enabling all firmware to be updated online and integrating firmware and system software updates in one operation HP SUM and the SPP offer faster updates of individual servers and dramatically faster updates of entire BladeSystem enclosures. Further improving system uptime and stability is the fact that HP provides 12 months of support on each Service Pack for ProLiant.

The user experience around HP SUM and the SPP has been improved in several ways, starting with the web download. A single web page provides access to a single download containing both the latest version of HP SUM version 5 and the latest SPP. Optional smaller subsets with only specific types of servers or specific operating systems are offered to save on download time. The HP SUM application has been re-written to provide a more straightforward, intuitive user interface that guides the user through the steps of discovery, analyses and update, providing comprehensive information on available updates, criticality and interdependencies. This information is also available in reports. By providing the option of multiple local or shared repositories which can be easily updated from, HP SUM provides the tools to optimize stability and consistency throughout the company. While HP SUM and the SPP will recommend the combinations of firmware and system software that HP has found to be the best practice, the application gives customers the flexibility to set their own specific baseline.

The Service Pack for ProLiant has been rigorously tested with specific attention for interaction between firmware, drivers and agents both within the server as well as in interaction with the BladeSystem enclosure components (Onboard Administrator and Virtual Connect). This testing ensures the highest quality as well as providing the input for HP SUM to deploy updates taking into account all interdepencies, when determining the correct updates and order of update deployment.
