PSOD after U1 upgrade by updatemanager

Jump to solution

Update manager install timed out during remediate of the first host that I tried to update.

Now I get a PSOD on the first part of boot sequence, right after scheduler is loaded. The server can boot into troubleshooting mode, but I have not had the time to investigate yet.

Any suggestions before I try another host? Smiley Happy

Server: HP BL495c G5

Agreed, it does appear that the insight agents cause some problems with the updates. Either timeouts, or psod's. We tested with and without them installed, and when no hp agents are installed, the upgrade is smooth.

Looks like HP Insight management agents really conflicts withhost update. Boy am I glad I decided to wait for a few days before updating...
