Updating OA firmware

Hi everyone,

We currently have a c7000 enclosure full with blades. Everything is working properly except the Onboard Admin; it reports lots of errors.

We currently run on an old version (1.12) and we want to update to the last version (2.25). Does anything needs to be restarted in order to update the firmware? Downtime is not acceptable.

Many thanks!

No restarts needed, but you _must_ update the server ILOs first to latest version (1.61) before updating the OA.

Thanks for the reply.

You mean the Blade BL460c server's ILO card? I assume this doesn't interfere the processes running on the Blade?

Re: Updating OA firmware

forgot to mention, that updating ILO fw does not interfere with server operations

Re: Updating OA firmware

just came in my mind ..that you have to assign the points to replies _before_ your "closing statements"
