Re: How to update firmware via ilo for RHEL.

If you have the health agents running on the server you can run the .scexe files in a shell on the server itself to update the various firmware. If your not running the agents, about the only firmware you can update is iLO. To unpack the .scexe file for iLO to get the .bin file the command is

filename.scexe --unpack=/directory/to/unpack/into

You can then use the iLO web interface, or through the OA to update iLO firmware

You can also download the BladeSystem Firmware Deployment tool to update all the firmware, but you have to boot the server via iLO virtual media to run it.
