Upgrade iLO2 firmware on a DL380 G6 running ESXi 4.1

I have downloaded the .scexe file but do not know how to extract the .bin file I need to update the iLO. I copied it down to the ESXi server and ran sh ./CP015685.scexe.  I get an error - Make sure these programs are on the path: tar gzip tail sleep rm ln mkdir mktemp


I also tried this command sh CP015685.scexe --unpack=/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/ilo  I get the error that sh can not open CP015685.scexe


Any help is greatly appreciated.

Download the windows version, extract it on any windows pc and you get the *.bin file. Then use the ilo web interface and update.

Hope this helps!

It is a .exe file, use a windows system and double click the file, you would get two options extract and install, click on extract and to a folder, you would find a .bin file, login to ILO and go to admininstration and browse to choose the .bin file

It is not an .exe file rather a .scexe file.  Windows does not have the software to open it.

Sorry, I kept clicking of the first link with out reading the whole description.  I got the windows file and extracted the .bin.  It took the file, but the log said firmware update via webpage failed.

Re: Upgrade iLO2 firmware on a DL380 G6 running ESXi 4.1

Did you use IE9 to upgrade the iLO2 firmware? I cannot use IE9 to upgrade my iLO2. It always fails.

 

I have been debugging this issue and it seems there is a bug with the Content-Length in IE9.  It is telling iLO2 a wrong lenght value when uploading the bin file and iLO2 ends up declaring the image as invalid.

 

Edit: Ok, I found the root cause of why IE9 fails to flash iLO2 firmware.  I'm getting it fixed in the next iLO2 firmware release.

I tried again with IE 8 this time and it still failed.
