upgrade firmware of a BL870c i4

Hi

I am trying to upgrade the firmware of the BL870c i4 , using the HP SUM update software 7.6.0 that I have downloaded into a windows server 2008. I cannot find a setup file for HP SUM update, but I did found a binary file that loads a web page, where is says ILO Federated Update. From there I did enter the IP and credencials of the ILO, but it cannot connect.

I´ve seen a video on youtube on how to update the firmware but using HP SUM update version 5.0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78w4Eload2k, which does not mention ILOFederated Update.

Please can you help

Re: upgrade firmware of a BL870c i4

The current bundle 2016.10 including everything you need, also HP SUM:

http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5330438&swItemId=MTX_c5c0befc88b24c1bac94bbb662&swEnvOid=54#tab3

 

Just follow the instructions step by step!

 

Check the release notes:

http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5330438&swItemId=MTX_c5c0befc88b24c1bac94bbb662&swEnvOid=54#tab4

For discovery, enter the OA address and credentials.

 

 

If you have a contract for your system (needed for download too), you may consider to ask HPE for help.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: upgrade firmware of a BL870c i4

Do you have a production system without a contract or warranty?

Really?

Re: upgrade firmware of a BL870c i4

OK.

Once this is solved, you should be able to download the files.

The link above points to a complete bundle including other blade components and I/O devices of the blade.

This link points to the system firmware only:

Meanwhile, read the release notes:

Re: upgrade firmware of a BL870c i4

You should specify the OA as a target first, from there SUM will discover the ILOs.


Hope this helps!
