Adapter Driver Update Utility?

Hello,

 

Is there an OS specific driver update utility for the C series stand alone servers?  I see the driver packs that have all the individual drivers via a zip file, is there a way to automate this outside of an assisted install via the host configuration utility during the OS install?

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Manvelas, Launching

Thanks Manvelas,

 

Launching the SCU as an application on Windows instead of a bootable ISO shows this option and works.
