Can't apply profile to blade

I just added my 7th blade enclosure to Oneview. This enclosure was in production and consists of all BL460C Gen8 blades booting ESXi 6.0 from SD card. Oneview is at 3.10. I created all profiles from same template and 15 of the blades boot fine. One however will fail during the profile application just after the ILO console displays message "Boot device is being configured by Virtual Connect. System will reboot shortly...". When the failure occurs, the console displays "This is not a bootable disk. Please insert a bootable floppy and press any key...". If I unassign the profile and reboot the blade it boots ESXi just fine. I've tried numerous things - reset ILO, reseat the blade, create a fresh profile, reset bios to defaults, reinstall intelligent provisioning, etc, etc. Nothing works. There are no errors in ILO logs. Errors reported in Oneview are:

Unable to get response back from Smart Update Tool within the expected amount of time.

The firmware update operation failed. Unable to boot the SPP.

Re: Can't apply profile to blade

The behavior you are experiencing is similar to the reported iLO issues other customers have discussed here. Please see this CA: http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c04996097. If your iLO firmware is older than 2.55, please update it and follow the guidance in the CA.

I upgraded ILO fw from 2.50 to 2.54 and the issue is resolved.  Thanks

Re: Can't apply profile to blade

I am having this problem at well. Running OneView 4.0, BL460 G8, running ILO code 2.55. 

Oneview is able to apply an SPP image to the blade, and the blade completes firmware installation process, but after reboot, I get the error "This is not a bootable disk. Please insert a bootable floppy and press any key to try again". 


I read over that other thread and the blade does not appear to be an a UFEI mode at all. I am also having the issue against multiple blades in multiple chassis, but all of them BL460 G8s. 

I have tried removing/reapplying the profile, different SPPs, etc. 

Any ideas?

Shall you select bootable tab on disk target ?
