DL 180 G6 BMC firmware fault after HP Support pack online upgrade

Tomorrow I have installed HP support pack on my DL 180 G6.

HPSUM used with online repository, all packages was installed.

During installation all fans starts working at full power, after reboot fans starts working in full power and do not become quieter (as before)

POST messages contain:

BMC Version: NULL

BMC xxxx Version: NULL (I can' remember what was xxxx)

BMC not responding (there's it waiting for any key for some time)

 

How can I restore BMC firmware?

Flash again with USB Media. Fixed the problem.

This unfortunately did not work.

 

For the others in the future: The final solution for my case was to change the motherboard (it was - luckily from my point of view - in warranty) and the HP support was really good.

 

Simply flashing it again was impossible, as I encountered an error message (I don't recall literaly - it said sth. like Intel chipsets are not  supported). I made a couple of furthermore trials (online / offline update, some variants of Update USB Sticks / DVDs), all without luck.

 

Cheers,

I flashed again with the USB Stick and after that the problem was fixed for me.

Everything was fine again.
