HP BladeSystem Firmware Deployment Tool Version: 1.10

Hi all
Does anybody here successfully use
HP BladeSystem Firmware Deployment Tool Version: 1.10 ?

I tried to use this tool on BL460c without any success.

In the firmware update process it restarts during message
"Updating firmware, please wait...."
I have read release notes and I already
have Onboard Administrator Firmware version 2.12.
Any ideas ?

Thanks,
Pascal

Pascal,
I saw such behaviour with Firmware Deployment Tool Version: 1.00 http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1195453

but with Firmware Deployment Tool Version 1.10 it works for my BL460/BL480 servers

But we already have OA Firmware version 2.13, maybe it make sense.

Re: HP BladeSystem Firmware Deployment Tool Version: 1.10

Thanks for your reply. I've updated to 2.13, but I have the same problem. Do you have another idea? Which version of BIOS, BL460C ROM, etc. do you have?

How do you solve the problems with your blades?

It's so strange, because I have the same BL460c blades....

thanks

>>Which version of BIOS, BL460C ROM, etc. do you have?


The ROM version was 2007.10.06 and 1.42 ILO firmware

Anyway, I only used BladeSystem Firmware Deployment Tool to upgrade to ILO 1.43 before upgrading to OA 2.13
And after Windows installation we use
HP BladeSystem Online Firmware Bundle for Windows
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=1842750&prodNameId=3288156&swEnvOID=1113&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-476c73f1c6b34e6c81b4470462
We create custom bundle with this tool and it works fine.
Note that Firmware Deployment Tool version 1.10 (both online and offline versions) don't contains last server ROM's and missing some required SAS drives firmware upgrades
