Firmware upgrade on Hard drives

Hi,

I have a DL380 G4, with 6 36GB scsi drives. For some reason, I am unable to upgrade the firmware. I mount the latest Firmware CD ISO using virtual media, and the Server is able to boot from it. Once it loads the "select language" page, I can not click the "continue"
button with my mouse or toggle with my keyboard.

I am able to run the ISO from windows but it does not detect that the HDs need an upgrade, where during boot-up, I get a message to upgrade te firm.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: Firmware upgrade on Hard drives

hi,

B016 is the firmware which I see on the Firmware maint 8.0 CD.

Which version of FM CD you are using to upgrade the firmware??

Re: Firmware upgrade on Hard drives

Hi andy,

thats the version I see tooo...but the smart update manager of the firmware does not detect that my Hard drives require an upgrade.

I think it is unable too because out of the 6 drives, the first two hard drives in slot (SCSI 0 & 1) already have the updated firmware, the other 4 drives were inserted after I did a first firmware upgrade.

Anyone know how I can force a downgrade on the first two drives?

Thanks

Re: Firmware upgrade on Hard drives

try downloading a seperate *.scexe file for the disk drive and then map it using the USB key/Supplemental disk.
