  1. To start the deployment, run HPSUM.EXE. The Inventory Progress screen is displayed while the HP Smart-Update Manager builds an inventory of available updates.

  2. The Select Installation Host(s) screen appears when the inventory process is complete.

  3. If you want to install HP SMH on the local server, check the Local Host checkbox and click Next.

  4. If you want to install HP SMH on remote server(s):

    1. Select the Remote Host or Group checkbox and click Manage Host. The Manage Host panel is displayed.

    2. Click Add Host. Here, you can add a new host(s) by DNS name or IP Address or you have the option to add a range of IP Addresses.

    3. You can also create a group of systems on which you want to install HP SMH by selecting Manage Groups.

      Note: If you chose to Manage Groups, you will need to give the Windows credentials for each remote server.

  5. After selecting the target server, click Next. This will show Discovery Progress while the system is checked for installed items. Then, the Select Bundle Filter page is displayed.

  6. From the Select Bundle Filter page, select the appropriate PSP bundle, addording to the target server's operating system architecture (either x86 or x64), and check the appropriate option for the bundle filter. There are three options provided:

    1. Allow Non-Bundle Version: Shows other versions of the product that are in the bundle. This lets you include updates that may be newer than those released in the bundle.

    2. Allow Non-Bundle Products: Shows updates for products that are not part of the bundle. This lets you update other items on your system at the same time as applying the bundle (as a convenience or because updates in the bundle may depend on them).

    3. Force All Bundle Updates: Automatically sets the force flag for updates in the bundle. This causes the update to install even if it is not necessary as long as the supported hardware is present and installation conditions are met.

    Note: Selecting the bundle filter option is not required when the HP SMH component is being installed alone.

  7. Click Next. This will take you to the Select Items to be installed panel. This panel shows the components to be installed or displays Installation not needed or Excluded by filtering.

  8. Check the System Management Homepage component and you can pre-configure the HP SMH component by selecting Configure Now.

    Note: If the PSP contains an older version of HP SMH than what is already installed on the target server, the HP SMH component will be listed under Installation not needed section. In this case, click Installation Options for HP SMH component and check the For Install checkbox. The HP SMH component will now be listed under Updates to be Installed.

  9. After selecting the HP SMH component, click Install. This will show the installation progress.

  10. After installation is finished, the Installation Result panel will be displayed.

  11. In the Installation Result panel, you will see two buttons Reboot Now and Exit.

  12. If you want to reboot the system, select Reboot Now. If you want to exit the program, select Exit. This will complete the HP Smart-Update Manager program.
