Just install one of the old supported OSes on another drive, reboot and run the firmware update. It's a self extracting executable.
With HP and Dell, it's their intention to support you by providing an additional layer of management on top of the actual manufacturers product. But you have to be in warranty to be able to leverage that support. If you intend to run equipment longer than the 5 year warranty, don't use Dell or HP or live without any firmware upgrades or support. If you use Dell or HP, replace hardware when it's out of warranty.
HP Gen8 servers are from 2012-2013 so 7-8 years old and not the best candidates for new installations.
2019/02/27 09:23 - I posted on the FreePBX community.
2019/02/27 15:13 - Another user commented they also had this issue.
2019/02/27 16:31 - I submitted a support ticket.
2019/02/27 17:03 - Sangoma replied stating this was not any kind of known issue and I needed to install their SSH key package to let them check the server.
2019/02/28 08:52 I replied that I had added the SSH package and updated the firewall to let them connect.
2019/02/28 09:49 Sangoma replied that the files were missing on the remote server and showed the log error.
2019/02/28 10:05 Sangoma replied that an internal trouble ticket was created.
2019/02/28 15:58 Sangoma replied that the issue was resolved.
2019/02/28 19:26 I confirmed that the firmware was downloadable
This is not any kind of response time that I can complain about. I do wish there had been known information on how to find the EPM download errors. I would have likely been resolved much quicker.
That's why I posted here. Search engines can get this out there.
I personally have refused to comply with GDPR. There's a weird irony in that so many non-EU companies (specifically American) felt the need to comply just because, as I saw on SW oh no, the EU gonna come after you somehow! yet when the EU implements a pain in the butt copyright law, suddenly "well, those laws don't apply to us." So I moved my company location from Czech Republic to Russia, and I'll sell to EU citizens anyway. I say, bring it on:
Again, getting less than 20 people quickly to make a vote is one thing, getting 1000's is another. Perhaps the number of companies that have 1000's that matter (i.e. it takes thousands of shareholders to make up a majority, it can't be done with less) is so small that it's not relevant to the conversation?
That's likely only a handful of companies. If any, it's only a theory that any like that exist. Normally there are either super large individual investors or funds that hold the majority of shares in just four or five representatives. They normally talk directly.
But if there was even need for an exception to this, investors can do whatever they want. They can have email voting and require responses in five minutes if they want.
