Viewing installed patches on HP P4000 Lefthand nodes

With some critical patches recently released for SAN/iQ 8.5, I thought it was a good time to figure out how a storage admin could determine if a particular patch had been installed on a P4000 node.

If you open the CMC and then drill down into a node and open the hardware section

The left pane of hardware information will be blank. Make sure you click to refresh.

Upon a refresh you will get a full display of the nodes hardware details including software patches installed.

This caught me out as I never thought about clicking to refresh – the info should auto-update in my opinion.

Hopefully this post has helped someone who might be curious to track patches applied to HP P4000 Lefthand systems

Thanks to Nate for this info🙂
