How to fry a system board using BB160

Don't try this at home...

1.Using the ILO mount the CD ISO image and boot up the server and let it start the upgrade.
2.When it gets to the ILO flash and reboots the ILO, reconnect and get a black screen.
3. Wait 30 minutes or more (up to the time when people start complaining that the server is down) and reboot using on of the virtual power button.
4. When you connect to the OA you'll notice that the blade that was upgraded no longer show up because the system board no longer has any brains.

To work around this problem, upgrade the ILO using the BIN file before you run the Brain Blaster ISO image.
