For this purpose, a separate installation package (PSP) is available for each component of the server. To update drivers using PSPs, you can alternatively use the PrimeUp installation tool.</p><p>The present manual "Local System Update of PRIMERGY Servers" incorporates the former "ServerView Update Manager Express" and "PrimeUp" manuals, which are no longer available. </p><p>I For updating firmware, BIOS and drivers, we recommend that you use Update Manager Express. </p><p>I To allow safe resetting in the case of errors, you should perform an appropriate backup of your system before doing any updates.</p><p>Local System Update for PRIMERGY Servers 7</p></li><li><p>Local update management on PRIMERGY servers</p><p>1.1 Local update management on PRIMERGY servers</p><p>In contrast to Update Manager from the ServerView Suite, which can supply entire data centers with firmware, Update Manager Express, PrimeUp and ASPs are ideally suited for local updates of individual systems.</p><p>I An overview of which PRIMERGY servers or which server components can be installed via ASPs is provided in the Update Manager Express data sheet.</p><p>Offline / online update procedures </p><p>A distinction is made between offline and online update procedures:</p><p> Offline update mode</p><p>Update Manager Express is started either from a booted DVD image (e.g. ServerView Update DVD) or via PXE boot. In offline mode, only firmware can be updated. On the other hand, more updates are available than in online update mode (e.g. HDD flash).</p><p> Online update mode</p><p>Update Manager Express, ASPs, PrimeUp (PSPs) are executed under a running supported operating system. In online mode, you have to ensure that the prerequisites required for performing the update are met (e.g. Update Manager Express requires that ServerView Agents are installed). Only online mode allows you to update devices drivers and ServerView Agents software. On the other hand, some firmware updates might not be possible due to lack of operating system support.</p><p>8 Local System Update for PRIMERGY Servers</p></li><li><p>Local update management on PRIMERGY servers</p><p>Local update management on PRIMERGY servers (Windows)</p><p>On PRIMERGY servers running under Windows Server operating systems, you have the following installation options:</p><p> Via the graphical user interface (GUI) of Update Manager Express or via the Update Manager Express command line interface (CLI) you can install BIOS/firmware/drivers for all server components jointly, or selectively for individual comp...</p></li></ul>
