Re: about update bios on bl465c

If you have a webserver you can use, you can also use the command-line and scripts to get the blades to boot automatically from virtual media.

Only last night I updated 16 blades in one enclosure to the March 28 BIOS with one command and one XML file.

If you download the aforementioned Firmware Deployment Tool, you'll find plenty of sample scripts to give you ideas about how to do it.

Also, the BIOS update download includes instructions for making it run unattended.
