Upgrading the HP OneView appliance with new releases

by Philip Sellers

HP announced the OneView 2.0 will be shipping soon during its HP Discover in June.  In the meantime, they’ve released version 1.20.05 which addresses several security vunleratilities, including Poodle over TLS, and a bunch of other bugfixes.  The release notes for 1.20.05 provide the full details, along with the previous 1.20 releases and their changes.

In case you haven’t upgraded your HP OneView appliance since it has been deployed, here is a walk-through to show you how simple the appliance is to update.  The 1.20.05 release is a good choice to install since it packages up all the previous releases into a single bundle that can be installed to bring up completely up-to-date.
