Is firmware update for Network and Smart Array Controller P420i possible via iLO4 in DL380p Gen8 ?

We have some bunch of bare metal DL380p Gen8 servers and I am working on updating the firmware for different components. 

 

I configured the iLO4 and upgraded the firmware for iLO4 from 2.07 to 2.10.  I want to upgrade the firmware for Smart Array Controller P420i and Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5719 Gigabit Ethernet.

 

Without having an Operating System installed, is it possible to upggrade the firmware of the aforementioned components via iLO or any other way ?

 

Thanks,

 

Karthik

Hi Karthik,

 

Please use the SPP 2015.04.0 and this would update the firmware of the server.

1. Download the iso image.

2. Mount the iso image through ilo.

3. Boot the server with the iso image.

4. Choose interactive mode & select the nic firmware and storage controller firmware.

5. Select update the firmware.
