after update BMC firmware DL120 G6 don't start

Hi All!!

 I have a  DL 120 G6 server. 

I update  bios firmware to version 0260701 (07/01/2013) - all work fine

Then I update BMC firmware to version 4.26 ...after that server don't start..

Situation very similar with this:

..but bios newer...

 

Thanks in advance

Re: after update BMC firmware DL120 G6 don't start

...And the violence caused such silence....

 

problem solved :

 

1. Update firware BMC initial version (4.22) (set jumper BMC recovery)

2. update bios previous version (need also set jumper BMC recovery, because system coud't start)

!!! it works!!!

3. update firware BMC latest version 4.26.

4. Update bios latest version (O26 (07/01/2013)

!!it works too!!!

 

thanks for attention.

p.s. кароч хз че было...

Had same problem.
Solved - thank you guys!

Probably,
if update first BMC, then BIOS everytihing ok.
if update BOIS, then BMC something doesn't work.


p.s. просто глюк )

Genai do you have the previous BMC firmware ?

I cannot download it from HP without paying. Very annoying and left me with a useless server. 

Thanks in advance

Re: after update BMC firmware DL120 G6 don't start

So... one hour of hardcore after I stepped onto this issue.

I'm replying here just to summarize some approaches and clear things.

Yes, if the BIOS is updated to 26 version first and the lo100i firmware is updated next, the issue is triggered.

The server can be forced to boot without BMC recovery mode, using this cruel hack(I had to experiment, 'cause it's in remote datacenter): power it up from ilo, then, as soon as you'll get the BIG WHITE POST screen, issue a "Hard reset" from ilo. Experiment with timings when you issue it, - it's not happening every time.

However, I don't see the way of resolving this without a BMC recovery mode.

Vincent,

I have similar issue. Do you have the old BMC and BIOS? Please send to hash@snom.me.

I tried re-flash with latest BMC and BIOS, but no luck.

Let me know if you have working solution.
