rx2620 firmware update

 

rx2620 firmware update

I am doing firmware update on a rx2620 server. The firmware updated on rx2620 are System, BMC and iLO MP Firmware.

File used is update_SFW.efi.

The problem am facing is as follows.
1.I have a DVD drive on my rx2620 and that has the OS loader DVD in it.
2.I have connected my USB stick to update this firware.
3. While i do power-on, i see that from the serial console, i am able to see the EFI Boot Manager .
4.From this EFI Boot Manager Window, when i select EFI Shell, i am not able to get into EFI shell, instead it automatically loads the OS loader that is present in this DVD
5.While i remove the DVD,i am able to get into EFI shell.

why is this happening. Any body expert in EFI here to tell me this..

Re: rx2620 firmware update

Some have reported problems with several terminal emulators - did you try putty already?

Hope this helps!

Re: rx2620 firmware update

Are you saying, this behaviour is seen coz of usage of terminal emulators.
I do not believe this.

Re: rx2620 firmware update

One of the problems was that the emulator gives always >return< twice if only one time pressed - strange results!

Hope this helps!

Re: rx2620 firmware update

I see this issue even in Putty too.
Also, what i see is that after i enter the EFI Shell with the DVD present in the DVD drive, EFI shell displays the Device Mapping Table and the first entry in this mapping table is fs0 is that of the DVD drive.

and then automatically it loads the startup.nsh script that picks the loader from the dvd drive.

If the DVD is not present, then it gets into the EFI shell and i can interactive commands in EFI.
If DVD is present, i cant do it..why

Re: rx2620 firmware update

What is the boot order? DVD first? You maybe have a very low value for the autoboot delay, so if the dvd is present it does a boot immediately.

Hope this helps!

Re: rx2620 firmware update

Boot Order is DVD first and the Autoboot Timeout is 10 secs.
Within this 10 secs, i select EFI shell from the boot order, inspite of this it runs this script startup.nsh

Re: rx2620 firmware update

Update the firmware and set the default boot entry to your OS boot drive (disk, not DVD).


Thanks for the single point.

Hope this helps!
