How to get drivers for HP Proliant G8 servers into SCCM 2012 R2

If you want to install HP Proliant servers with System Center 2012 (R2), look into the “HP Insight Control for System Center”

Only issue is that current version 7.3.1 only supports System Center 2012 SP1, and Windows Server 2012.

So instead, download the Tool and get hold of the drivers that are build into this ISO file and import them to SCCM 2012 R2.

If you try to install the Tool on SCCM 2012 R2,  you will get this error “CreateBootImagePackage(HP ProLiant Boot Image x64, x64, ) = failed to create wimfile” so decieded to find the drivers instead.

In my situation i needed drivers to do Bare Metal Deployment with Windows Server 2012 R2 on HP Proliant G8 Blades.

The Toolkit can be downloaded here: https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=HPICE

Documentation can be optained here: http://h17007.www1.hp.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/solutions/info-library/index.aspx?cat=insightmanagement&subcat=icms

When you Mount the ISO you will see these components:

HPInsightFiles

Open “HP SCCM 2012 Integration Kit” and use 7-zip to extract the one hpsccm2012kit-2013.09.0.4.exe file into a folder.

Inside this file you will find a folder called “DRIVERS” – choose your OS and import these drivers to you SCCM 2012 R2 server and choose the ones to import to your Boot Images.

I hope this helps you to find the drivers you need for SCCM 2012 R2 regarding HP Proliant servers.
