How to install a HPE CPxxxxxx.scexe firmware update on your ESXi Host

Follow the steps below to make it happen:
(The most common reason for failure is caused by the missing executable permission)
  • Enable SSH on your ESXi host (configuration tab, Security Profile, Properties)
  • Copy the CPxxxxxx.scexe file to /tmp on your ESXi Host using eg. WinSCP
  • Logon as root at your ESXi host and change to /tmp
  • Check with “ls” if your CP file is there
  • Change file permission to executable: “chmod +x CPxxxxxx.scexe”
  • Run the file: “./CPxxxxxx.scexe”
After you have completed these steps, reboot the host and you are done.

Good luck!
