Using RDP to deploy on-line Firmware updates

Using RDP to deploy on-line Firmware updates

Example cp005285 Online ROM Flash component for Windows - HP Integrated Lights-Out
version 1.70 (23 Feb 05)

It appears to work in that the firmware is upgraded...but the script failes...I suspect the return code of 3 may mean successful but I cannot reference it.

How do we find what the return codes are?

Re: Using RDP to deploy on-line Firmware updates

The return codes for Smart components can be found in the HP ProLiant Support Pack and Deployment Utilities User Guide. The 7.20 version can be found here:

RDP expects the return code to be 0 for success and non-zero for a failure which is not what the component returns. You can solve this problem with an extra command line parameter to the component.

Try this: cp005285.exe /s /dosretcode

The "/dosretcode" parameter will tell the component to return a zero(0) for success and a one(1) for failure.
