Dunno 'bout "Linux Vendor Firmware Service", but HPE support, ah, yeah...
let's not go there. And they *really* want you to use MS DOS to update the
firmware. Oh, and when we had support in to do repairs about 6 or so
months ago on our small SGI supercomputer (they bought SGI), the techs
were worried, because HPE was spinning off support to Unisys, and how they
were going to get parts....
