Error during boot proces Firmware DVD 9.10

Hi,

I am trying to load the Firmware DVD 9.10 on a Proliant DL380G4 server.
I do get the first screens (with the question for interactive mode or automatic mode)
However, after a few minutes i get the following information:
CD information
mount directory /mnt/boot
Physical device: /dev/sr0
volume_label: HPFWUP910
SS_CD_MOUNTPOINT: /mnt/boot
Boot env: yes
Architecture: x86_x64
fwupdatesystem0013216b039b: #bootar: cannot connect to X server:0

I am using an iso file and ILO2 (virtual media)
What is going wrong?

greetings,

Kick

Broken ISO or any (firmware related) problem with virtual media? What is the current iLO firmware?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

The current firmware of ILO is 1.94
Also the ILO self test is "passed"

I have downloaded the firmware DVD 2 times now and still no succes.
I can boot the 8.60 FW and 9.00 FW DVD with virtual media.

From instructions:

To ensure the integrity of your download, HP recommends verifying your results with this MD5 Checksum value:
eb72cb8861356ab57ba6a09fb85dbaec firmware-9.10-0.zip

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

How can i check this?
I have never used the checksum files before.

Well, i found a tool to check a file.
The zip file and checksum number are the same. In other words, the check was succesfull.

I did some extra testing.
Same Firmware DVD iso on a Proliant DL 380 G5 server.
The firmware was able te load correctly.
It seems that the firmware 9.10 DVD is not working correctly with some Proliant servers.

@Manuel

No the Proliant DL380 G4 is on the hardware list of FW910
See : http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?swItem=MTX-9a3c19e25e684b0ea5fef438c9&taskId=135&swLang=8&swEnvOID=1005&prodNameId=3288132〈=en&cc=us&idx=2&mode=4&

Re: Error during boot proces Firmware DVD 9.10

hm.... you are right, but i tried 9.0/9.1 on dl 380/360 - g2/g3/g4 never worked - so always used the 8.70 cd. dunnow why they are on the HP Firmware DVD supported list, strange.

9.0/9.1 worked on all g5/g6/g7 servers as well.

Re: Error during boot proces Firmware DVD 9.10

Hi,

I noticed that the link i provided earlier is not working anymore and that the latest firmware option for the G4 is altered in 9.00 (was 9.10)
In other words, HP changed it.
