Firmware Update


I'm curious about the way you do firmware updates.
We have 2 servers of the same type here. One with a newer firmware, so I tried to update the other one with the firmware dvd (9.2 from December), but it didn't seem to contain the version, the other one already had installed. It still shows August or something.
I've read about the online update which isn't really interesting for me, since I don't want to update firmware remotely. For BIOS System ROM I just found an alternative to install the firmware from an USB stick.
There are also other available downloads, but it seems to be a little messy to me. Hard to tell what you need.
What is your prefered method of doing firmware updates?

Re: Firmware Update

I usually do firmware from the ISO download. You could do a bootable USB instead of a DVD. DVD is easier to burn.
