fwget is a simple command-line browser that interacts with the HPE Firmware Pack for ProLiant online repository . This python2/3 script allows users to search, locate, and download firmware packages including rpm, fwpkg and fup files. Acquired firmware may then be flashed with the fwget companion tool "ilorest", or by running the embedded setup command found in firmware rpms. If you know how to use apt-get, or yum, you know how to use fwget.

In order to access HPE firmware repositories an access token must be supplied the first time fwget is invoked. Login with your HPE Passport credentials and generate your token here. NOTE: you must additionally have an active warranty or support contract linked to your HPE Passport account to access HPE firmware updates for ProLiant G7, Gen8 and Gen9 servers. Warranty/support is NOT required for Gen10 servers.
