How to update Integrity iLO2 on BL860c

Hello,
I have to update the Onboard Administrator FW on a C7000 cabinet to v.2.25,on the cabinet I have five HP Integrity BL860c Server Blades and I have to update the iLO2 FW version on them to the latest version,I think it´s v.T.02.17.
Can I update only the iLO2 FW version or must I run the whole package (PF_CTAHISYS0301)..???
Thanks for any help.

EFI FW : ROM A 06.20, ROM B 06.20
System FW : ROM A 03.01, ROM B 03.01, Boot ROM A

I would copy the EFI files first to an USB thumb drive, then to the hard disk and run it.

See the release notes.

Update also this:

PDH 50.05, UCIO 03.0b, PRS 00.08, and PIC 00.05

Hope this helps!

Re: How to update Integrity iLO2 on BL860c

The recommended way is to update the all those firmware to latest at the same time as mentioned by Trosten.

To answer your question, you can update only iLO2 FW using ISO version of the firmware. The method use HPOFM which provides the selection option for updating the firmware of a particular system entity like MP.

Even the EFI version which use a utility called "update_sfw.nsh" which can be used to flash MP firmware but you have to have EFI image of the firmware. I don't see a separate EFI version of MP firmware available at HP BSC website. What you get in the EFI version is an embedded EFI image of System FW, BMC FW, MP FW etc. So there is no way to select a particular FW image.

Re: How to update Integrity iLO2 on BL860c

Thanks to both for your quick answers,I thougt that I could update the MP iLO2 fw the same way I used to do un the old rp8400 and only reboot the MP instead of the whole server,but,of course,they are totally different servers.
It is very difficult for the customer to give server downtime to do the update and,consecuently,reboot the server.
Here is the output of the sysrev command:
MP FW : T.01.22

BMC FW : 05.03

EFI FW : ROM A 05.67, ROM B 05.67

System FW : ROM A 01.01, ROM B 01.01, Boot ROM A

PDH FW : 50.05

UCIO FW : 03.0b

PRS FW : 00.08 UpSeqRev: 02, DownSeqRev: 05

PIC FW : 00.05

It looks like I have to do the whole update on this server if I am updating the OA on the C7000 cabinet to v 2.25,right...??

Yes.

Moreover as per the release notes of OA fw v.2.25 before attempting to upgrade the Onboard Administrator firmware, you have to have the iLO2 version to v1.50 or greater. Refer this link
