HP Moonshot Component Pack is a comprehensive firmware solution tested on the HP Moonshot System and delivered as a compressed file. The compressed file includes all the component files needed to update a Moonshot System. Firmware updates contained in the Moonshot Component Pack are deployed via the iLO Chassis Manager CLI or HP Moonshot-45G/180G Switch Module CLI. Flashing the firmware components consists of delivering and executing updated files in the HP Moonshot iLO Chassis Management Firmware, which distributes the flash file. More information is available at www.hp.com/go/servers/moonshot.
