Extending the firmware repository in HPE OneView

· by Rudi Martinsen · Read in about 1 min · (118 words)

This is a short post on how to extend the internal firmware repository in HPE OneView.

The procedure is documented in the installation guide for 3.0, but if you are like me chances are that you don’t have that lying around so I thought I’d write up a short post on it for future reference.

The process is pretty straight forward:

  • Shut down the appliance
  • Extend the hard disk to 275GB*
  • Start the appliance
  • The repository should be extended, if not do a manual restart

  • Note that the disk needs to be minimum 275 GB for the repository to be extended, and that anything more than 275GB will be wasted space
