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. Users deploy the firmware updates contained in the Moonshot Component Pack via the iLO Chassis Manager CLI or HP Moonshot-45G/180G Switch Module CLI. This can be accomplished using HP Smart Update Manager, which is included with the files, or manually. Download the latest pack from the HP website (www.hp.com/go/servers/moonshot).

Important Notes:

Please Note: The firmware file for the HP Moonshot 45-Port/180-Port Switch (Switch_FW_45G_180G_2.0.0.19.bin) and HP Moonshot-45XGc Switch Firmware Image (Switch_FW_45XGc_7.1.045, ESS 2407) are included outside of the firmware zip file, and will not be flashed during an HP SUM update.
