Re: BL460G6

Well none of the later firmware updates specifically say they are there to support G6 servers but 2.32 was the 1st to support G5 so it did not know of G6 at that time. So it would be recommended that you upgrade.

Re: BL460G6

can i put the firmware that i need to load on any laptop on the same network of the OA or it should be located on one of the blades ?

Toni,
My OA's are at 2.60, and I recently installed a bunch of G6's without any issues.

Re: BL460G6

Hi Toni,

Check Note 2 on the "Previous Firmware Versions" tab of this page:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/blades/components/c-class.html

You will see that HP requires OA version 2.51 or higher for compatibility with G6 blades.

OA firmware can be uploaded from your laptop or any other share on the same network.

good luck

Re: BL460G6

- Thank you for the replies

can i upgrade directly to the latest firware OA version or should i pass by the next one first
as per the pre rquisits , i should update also the ILO and ROM and the VC firmware (is it mandatory ? )

before the update of the OA , how can i do a backup of the OA configuration ?

Thank you

>>can i upgrade directly to the latest firware OA version or should i pass by the next one first

It is safe to go directly from 2.32 to 2.51/2.52/2.60

>>as per the pre rquisits , i should update also the ILO and ROM and the VC firmware (is it mandatory ? )

Yes. Update the ROM, ILO, PMC (Power Management Controller), OA, and VC. If your VC is older than 1.34 then you should upgrade that before you upgrade the OA.

>>before the update of the OA , how can i do a backup of the OA configuration ?

From the GUI, Enclosure Information > Enclosure Settings > Configuration Scripts.
Follow the link, "Click here to view a configuration script containing the current settings for this enclosure."

Hope that helps.

Re: BL460G6

Just to finish the last post.

When the new window opens containing the configuration, use the "Edit" menu to "Select all", then "Copy".

Now open NOTEPAD, (or some other text editor) and "Paste" the configuration into the Editor.

Now "Save" the file to your server with whatever name you want to use.
