iLO2 updates fail with return code 7

While trying to do iLO 2.01 or 2.05B updates on some BL490c G6 blades the offline firmware updater CD (9.20B) fails with a return code 7.

I've cold booted the blades, pulled them from the chassis, and nothing helps.

I don't want to manually do the firmware update via the web interface. We need the firmware update CD method to work consistently. The update works on some blades, but not others, even though hardware wise they are identical.

Thoughts?

Hello,
we use update via web interface as we do not have dozens of blades...
Try recommended solution from HP: HP BladeSystem Online Firmware Bundle for Windows/Linux, latest version is 1.7 from january 2010, so quite outdated...

We did the BIN update through the web interface, and that worked.

I use the HP Lights-Out Directories Migration Utility when I do my firmware updates to ILOs. Never had an issue with them.
