ILO5 Firmware update for Gen10 Blades via Onboard Admistrator

ILO5 Firmware update for Gen10 Blades via Onboard Admistrator

So, trying to mass update ILO5 on Gen10 Blades on a C7000 chassis using the UPDATE command from my Onboard Administrators running v4.80.  Haven't tried this with Gen10s before, been doing it for years with previous versions.

update ilo all http://<URL>/ilo5_120.bin

Previous versions are still working great.  However, when I tried the above command to update all Gen10 Blades, my Onboard Administrator crashed and rebooted.  Wondering if anyone has tried this before and is seeing the same issue?  Looks like the OA ran out of memory from the logs:

Apr  5 14:39:52  OA: Proliant iLO firmware update attempted by user

Apr  5 14:46:13  OA: Onboard Administrator is rebooting

ILO5 Firmware is double the size of ILO4 (32MB vs 16MB), so I'm guessing that contributed.  Just wondering if this is a supported operation.  I'm not seeing anything that says it's not.  I don't have a ton of Gen10 Servers, but I would prefer to not have to update those individually if I have to...

Wait for next release of OA firmware. To validate more on this you can log a support ticket with HPE.
