DL180 G5 Flashing BMC SDR/Config then shuts off

We have a DL180 G5

We see the messsage:

Flashing BMC SDR/Config......Please wait

DO NOT power cycle or resetthe system, may take several minutes...Done.

BMC Fan Curve Updating...Done.

It then shuts completely off. 

I downloaded the following media and tried to flash the firmware, but it will not boot from a USB drive.

Thanks for the reply.

Interestingly enough, after letting the server sit for about 3 days (over the weekend) it booted up without a problem.   I am making sure that all of my ducks are in a row if it fails like that again, but currently it appears to be functioning appropriately.

I will update in the next week or so, depending on if they want to proceed with your instructions, otherwise I will mark it a solution at that time.
