NC373i MF Card in BL 685c ISCSI Boot Rom

Hi,

i`m trying to boot my BL685c over the integratet MF NC 373i.
I allready updatet my Server BIOS and the FW for the NIC so both are at an actual FW Release.
After the Configuration of the Boot Order and activating the ISCSI Boot in the BIOS I recieve the following Error:

"ISCSI Boot Option ROM 1.0.0. is not supported by this device Firmware".

I cant find any other Boot Option Rom for the NC 373i.

Any one can help me ?

Hi
Have you tried this release to update the boot code?:

Found this:

It says it contains option ROM 1.1.3. Maybe this will help.

Did it upgrade option ROM to 1.1.3, or are you still at version 1.0.0?

Just tried this on my DL380 G5 (although this software is theoretically for C-Class blades). It updated the boot code fine, but didn't update option ROM, like in your case. This really sucks...

I'm trying the same on the BL465c the NC373m cards. I get that error even after running the ROM updates. The ev.exe seems to write out the config (since the ev -p reads it back to me) but I'm concerned about the error too.

Here you go get the linux file and extract it. There is a DOS updater under the apps\ccfwupg\ccfwupg1 folder. It runs the same, but the binary for the ROM is 1.1.6 (listed on the file). This update worked for me.
