HPE has introduced enhancements in HPE 3PAR OS 3.3.1 and Service Processor 5.0.0 or later that simplify the installation of HPE 3PAR OS patches. So far, 3PAR customers needed to contact HPE Services (PointNext) to schedule minor and major updates on their 3PAR arrays.

With these enhancements it enables you to self-install these patches at your convenience without needing to schedule time with HPE Pointnext. With HPE 3PAR OS 3.3.1 and Service Processor 5.0.0 or later, except for the healthcheck, all other pre-requisite checks that are needed for patch installation have been simplified and automated.

The new web-based Service Processor console features an intuitive and easy to use patch update process. You will be notified of new patches via HPE InfoSight or alerts in the Service Processor console. By default, new patches will be automatically downloaded to your Service Processor and made available for you to self-install at your convenience.

In a first stage, only patches and minor updates will be made available through CSU, in a second stage also major updates will be made available for deployment.

By upgrading your Service Processor to 5.0.3 or later, you will be eligible as well for HPE InfoSight activation for cross-stack analytics and other nice features… So it is really worth to upgrade.
