Re: Firmware downgrade

 

details please.

 

Where did you get this "incompatible" information?

The current BIOS 1.52 has important fixes, the last available previous version is 1.40.

I doubt there is a reason for downgrade.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Firmware downgrade

Thanks alot, My Enclosure OA version is 3.6 or 3.7 and BL460C G9 supports from 4.1. if i downgrade the firmware of the server then it should support,  My servers firmware is the latest. As of now i cannot upgrade Enclosure OA firmware version.

Re: Firmware downgrade

 

no downtime for oa update needed. read about all dependencies if you use virtual connect.

 

this will help you too:
