Fail to update BL 465c G7 BIOS using offline HP SPP 2014.09 media through iLO ?

Hi All,

 

Can anyone please asssit me here to shed some light as to why my BIOS update using HP SPP 2014.09 is failing ?

 

See the below screenshot:

Therefore the ROM Version of th Blade is still on A19 01/29/2011 not updated to the 2014 version.

 

see below after the update:

Am I missing something here or is there any trick to continue updating the BIOS with the latest firmware ?

My browser redirects this hit to german language, sorry

maybe you get it in another language.

 

Sounds like a solution. - update CPLD-Code to ersion 15 first, then update the BIOS.

 

 

You need to update using this files first

Torsten,

 

Thank you for the reply. I couldn't get back to reply to this thread last week due to the browser problem I'm having.

 

Anyway, the iLO 3 firmware on the affected server is 1.80 Jul 11 2014 while the Advisories you suggest is suggesting me http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c02994661 to upgrade it into v 1.20 ?

I've spent hours trying to piece together the wreck that is HP's firmware update repository, before finally managing to find a working solution. To save time for people in the future who come here from google, here's how to fix this:

  1. You'll have to coldboot your blade (as in, physically pull it out of the chassis. Sorry)
  2. Download this ISO - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/saeutgczazascqm/AADYERk3qaVUiA-1W9VomFBja?dl=0 - That link was made by a user in this thread. Make sure you log in and give him Kudos. /t5/HPE-BladeSystem/Error-whilst-upgrading-to-the-lastest-BIOS-for-a-BL465c-G7/m-p/6699831#M19840 - if it ever vanishes, find me on twitter or gmail or anything (I'm xrobau everywhere) and ask me for it again.
  3. Boot from that ISO. It will boot and look like this: http://imgur.com/LaogIIh
  4. Select yes. Let it flash.
  5. You will get kicked out of ILO. I immediately reconnected without a problem.
  6. You'll then see this. Do what it says. http://imgur.com/a/mrav3 (Note the ISO does *not* shut the machine down, you'll have to do that manually - shut it down, and then pull the blade)
  7. Re-run the SPP and everything will work

Note that I am using the SPP with the exact filename of SPP2015100.2015_0921.6.iso to do this, and it works.
