dl360 G6: iLO2 FW update not registered

Hi, all

 

I've just updated the ILO2 FW from 1.82 to 2.07 by running the the .scexe file on the server.  Update went fine, but ILO2 still returns v1.82:

 

</>hpiLO-> show map1/firmware1
status=0
status_tag=COMMAND COMPLETED
/map1/firmware1
  Targets
  Properties
    version=1.82
    date=03/31/2010

Attempting to reinstall 2.07 results in :

 

          ERROR: Cannot write same firmware version. [rewrite  2.07=>2.07]

 

The update process looked like:

 

> sh CP015685.scexe

Hi,

 

I have no clue why this is happening but I have some suggestions.

We can reset iLO to Factory Defaults and see if that displays correct FW version.

 

You can reset iLO by this way:
1. Shutting down server and disconnecting power to the power supplies.
2 . HPONCFG /RESET from HPONCFG (iLO online configuration utility) will RESTORE iLO TO FACTORY DEFAULTS

 

Hope this helps.

Many thanks for the swift reply!  Yes, i thought it was going to come down to this.  Typical problem - once up, a server is hard to take down :)  I'll get onto this asap and relay my findings.

 

cheers

Well, that worked ... then i applied an Advanced Pack Trial key and iLO2 reverted to 1.82!  Nice trick!  Still, as a proof-of-concept, it worked well.  Kudo well-deserved.  Thanks!
