HP Servers loses connection to SD Card

I have some customer running ESXi installed on SD Card on HP Proliant servers Gen8 and Gen9, that has have problems where the ESXi could not write to the SD Card.

Some of them got this message i the vSphere Client.

Other has tried to update/upgrade hosts, and after reboot, it was still the same build.

All of them was running ILO 4 firmware 2.20, witch is distributed with HP SPP 2015.0.6.0, and there is a problem with this one, it look like it is fixed in version 2.22.

ILO 4 firmware 2.22 can be found here: http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5264039&swItemId=MTX_30e9eb3e11104548a326deafbe&swEnvOid=4168

Update, 24th November 2016:

The recommended ILO 4 firmware is now 2.50

  1. Thanks for sharing this info. I’ve encountered this behavior in 2 of our 5 HP DL360 G9 servers. I’ll check the iLO version and consider upgrading if applicable.
