smartupdate CLI (Linux) - HPE BladeSystem Onboard Administrator

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to update OA using smartupdate on Linux, I'm getting this error but I don't know whats the right way to do that. 

My environment: Centos 7 on docker, I installed sum-8.0.0-84.rhel7.x86_64 on it.

I'm running (I want to update the firmware only): 

smartupdate --s --target my_remote_server --username my_user_name --passwd "my_password" --romonly


auditLog[6145]: Disabling blocked firewall rules
sum_service_x64 started successfully on port 63001, ssl port 63002 and ftp port disabled.
Inventory failed for location - Reason - /opt/sum/bin - is an invalid location. The selected location must have one or more components.
Sending Shutdown request to engine
Waiting for engine to shutdown
Successfully shutdown the service.


Can anyone help me please,?

Why not point the browser to the OA and use hpoa470.bin file?

Hope this helps!
