Upgrade Requirement:
Optional - Users should update to this version if their system is affected by one of the documented fixes or if there is a desire to utilize any of the enhanced functionality provided by this version.

This firmware has been thoroughly tested and is officially supported for use in High Performance Computing clusters, but it has not been through the extra level of test scenarios required for including in the HPE Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP).

HPE recommends that the latest HPE Mellanox Online Firmware Upgrade Utility available with HPE Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) to be used for conservative customer environments not specifically requiring the fixes or enhancements found in HPE firmware version 2.42.5700-Flex-3.4.754.

The following issues are resolved in version 2.42.5700:

  • An issue that occasionally resulted in Vital Product Data (VPD) reading timeout.

Download ;fw-ConnectX3Pro-rel-2_42_5700-764285-B21_Ax-CLP-8025-UEFI-14.11.49-FlexBoot-3.4.754_windows.exe; to local folder on a system running a supported Microsoft Windows operating system.

Use Microsoft Windows CRC/SHA tool to calculate the SHA256 hash value for ;fw-ConnectX3Pro-rel-2_42_5700-764285-B21_Ax-CLP-8025-UEFI-14.11.49-FlexBoot-3.4.754_windows.exe;.

Compare the above CRC/SHA tool calculated value with the SHA256 checksum value b1b2ea515718c4feb694f006ff3a99bf74f41e5591f095ee39e4399136746fc5  for the self extracting exe file fw-ConnectX3Pro-rel-2_42_5700-764285-B21_Ax-CLP-8025-UEFI-14.11.49-FlexBoot-3.4.754_windows.exe

If the values match, then the integrity of the downloaded file has been verified.

•    If the values do not match, do not deploy the file or its contents.

•    Download the file a second time and compare the new hash value.

•    If the hash values do not match, then do not deploy the downloaded file and contact HPE Technical Support.

To verify the HPE SHA256 Authenticode digital signature do the following steps:

Download fw-ConnectX3Pro-rel-2_42_5700-764285-B21_Ax-CLP-8025-UEFI-14.11.49-FlexBoot-3.4.754_windows.exe to a system running a supported version of Microsoft Windows Server OS

Right-click the filename then select Properties

When the Properties window displays, click the Digital Signature tab

Select the first entry in the Signature List and click the Details button.

The signature status will display at the top of the Details dialog.

•    If the signature message states that “This digital signature is OK.”, then the firmware package is authenticated as an HPE package

•    If the message “This digital signature is not OK.” displays, then do the following:

•    Do not deploy the firmware.

•    Download firmware a second time and verify the signature again. If the signature is not OK, then contact HPE Technical Support.

Steps to be followed for firmware upgrade:

Install HCA card in supported HPE ProLiant Rackmount Server.

Install Mellanox WinOF 5.35 or later.

Download the file fw-ConnectX3Pro-rel-2_42_5700-764285-B21_Ax-CLP-8025-UEFI-14.11.49-FlexBoot-3.4.754_windows.exe and extract the files.

Install Mellanox Firmware Tools version 4.14.0 or later for Windows.

Use mst and flint commands to Query the HCA Card.

Validate that the query reports HCA card has PSID =  HP_1380110017

Use flint to upgrade the HCA card firmware.

Reboot the server.

Verify that the card is running new firmware.

Worked example:

Open a CMD console (click Start->Run and enter ‘cmd') and enter the following command:

#mst status



Run command ;mlxvpd.exe -d ‘BUS ID of Mellanox adapter’ ; and check the details to obtain the Part Number, Serial Number etc.

NOTE: Please navigate to the path C:Program filesMellanoxWinMFT to execute the below command.
