does DELL use HPE drivers ?

Hi,

the last 10 years I only had HPE hardware now I have my first Dell (M630) server. I just installed the VMware 6.7 image provided by Dell. Now I want to update the server to the newest versions.

First I did a 'check compliance' and then I wanted to remediate the needed updates. But there are two HPE software bundles automatically chosen - that confuses me. Is that normal that Dell get's HPE drivers? Or is there any problem with the Update Manager of vCenter 6.7?

It's the predefined non-critical Baseline.

Thanks Wolfgang

The HPE bundles show up, because they are in the baseline.

I'd suggest you create a separate fixed baseline for the Dell hosts which only contain VMware patches plus appropriate Dell patches (if available).

Hi André,

that I don't understand. Because all manufacturers are in the baseline. But e.g. Dell does not show up on a HPE server. Did here change the behavior with integrated VUM in VCSA 6.7 ?

I always thought if an update file is automatically chosen it is really needed and will be installed.

Thanks Wolfgang
