Proliant 385 G6 Unable to upgrade firmware on P410


Proliant 385 G6 Unable to upgrade firmware on P410


A customer of mine has 2 x DL 385 G6 running vsphere 4U1. We have successfully upgraded firmware and bios using Firmware Maintainance CD 8.70,
But when trying to upgrade to firmware 2.74 for the P410 we face problems.

I've tried creating a USB-stick with firmware maintaninance CD 8.70, and adding the CP012212.scexe. This USB-pen works (I've used it to upgrade a couple of 385 G5ps).
But on both of the 385 G6 it times out after about 10 mins with "Discovery Failed"
I've also tried to create a 8.60 USB-pen, then the discovery fails even quicker (less than a minute)

It is the following update:

Any tips?
