Confussion around System Rom version

I'm looking in iLO System Information > Firmware. There is a System ROM Firmware Version listed there e.g. P70 07/01/2015. However, when receiving Critical Alert for your Servers email I see alerts for System ROM version 2.50. The only mention of 2.50 I see in iLO next to iLO firmware version so how to understand that?

Re: Confussion around System Rom version

system ROM - still called BIOS often - version 07/01/15 is probably something like a DL380 Gen8, version 2.50 (maybe 2.52 now) is a DL380 Gen9.

ILO 4 current version is still 2.55.

To be more specific, what server do you have?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Confussion around System Rom version

I have DL380 G7,8,9. Mind the Adisory notifications regarding Proliant servers don't mention the BIOS date but version. Could the version number, if not visible in iLO, perhaps be extracted with HPiLO Powershell commandlets?

Hi,

You can get all firmware verison infromation from iLO cmdlets using below cmdlet. BIOS FW verison always contain date information in it. Don't know are you looking for fw version information or anything else.

$out = Get-HPiLOFirmwareInfo -Server 192.168.1.2 -Username admin -Password admin123 -DisableCertificateAuthentication -Verbose

PS C:\Windows\system32> $out.FirmwareInfo | ft

Re: Confussion around System Rom version

That's interesting. I see iLO 5 displays somewhat diferenet info than the same commendlet is giving me for a DL380 G8 iLO 4 I only see P70 and the date with no mention on version number. For G9 however it mentions version number, here 2.42 so possibly for G8s it was just not available.
