gen9 update from v3 to v4 Intel Xeon Processor

Всем привет!

Необходима помощь с данной статьей https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=c04849981 .
Есть ли какой-либо способ (cli в ос, в iLO) либо где можно посмотреть текущую версию ПО по апдейту процессоров? Имеется ввиду, что если сервер готов к апдейту, то версия будет 3.1.3.021, если нет -> меньше.
Необходимо проверить это каким-то способом, отличным от запуска прошивки.



Не подходящая прошивка.

Hello everyone!

Need help with this article https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=c04849981.
Is there any way (cli in OS, in iLO) or where can I see the current software version for updating processors? It means that if the server is ready for the update, then the version will be 3.1.3.021, if not -> less.
You need to check this in some way other than running the firmware.

 

Inappropriate firmware.

# sh /tmp/cpu_update.scexe
Flash Engine Version: Linux-1.5.3-13
Name: Intel Xeon Processor Xeon E5-2600 V4 Software Upgrade Online Flash component for Linux  - HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers
New Version: 3.1.3.021
Current Version: 0003.0000.0006.0267
The software is installed but is not up to date.
Do you want to upgrade the software to a newer version (y/n) ?y

Актуальная прошивка:

Current firmware:

# ./CP028985_update_firmware.scexe
Flash Engine Version: Linux-1.5.3-13

Name: Intel Xeon Processor Xeon E5-2600 V4 Software Upgrade Online Flash component for Linux  - HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers
New Version: 3.1.3.021

Current Version: 0003.0001.0003.0021

The software is installed and up to date.
The installation does not need to continue,
however, you may still install the software.

Do you want to install this version (y/n) ?y


Заранее благодарю за ответы!
Thanks in advance for your answers!

Hello,

 

Your query is not clear, please clear your query.

 

What you need here or what is the issue in your server.

 

Please share the server model also.( DL380 Gen9 , ML350 Gen9….etc.)

 

Привет,

Re: gen9 update from v3 to v4 Intel Xeon Processor

There are several methods available to check for the version of the current ME firmware without running the firmware update Smart Component.

In the iLO GUI, navigate to the "System Information -> Firmware Information -> Firmware" page and reference the "Server Platform Services (SPS) Firmware" entry.

From the CLI in the OS, you could query the iLO via a RIBL script using the "hponcfg" utility (providing the CHIF driver is loaded). For example:

# cat foo.xml
<RIBCL VERSION="2.22">
<LOGIN USER_LOGIN="adminname" PASSWORD="password">
<SERVER_INFO MODE="read">
<GET_EMBEDDED_HEALTH>
<GET_ALL_FIRMWARE_VERSIONS/>
</GET_EMBEDDED_HEALTH>
</SERVER_INFO>
</LOGIN>
</RIBCL>

# hponcfg -f foo.xml
HP Lights-Out Online Configuration utility
Version 5.5.0 Date 5/30/2019 (c) 2005,2019 Hewlett Packard Enterprise Development LP
.
.
.
<INDEX_10>
<FIRMWARE_NAME VALUE = "Server Platform Services (SPS) Firmware"/>
<FIRMWARE_VERSION VALUE = "3.0.6.267.4"/>
</INDEX_10>
.
.
.

You could also find it in the OEM-specific SMBIOS/DMI data, but you have to do a little more work to decode it, for example:

# dmidecode -t 216
.
.
.
Handle 0x0039, DMI type 216, 23 bytes
OEM-specific Type
Header and Data:
D8 17 39 00 09 00 01 00 03 03 00 00 00 06 00 67
02 04 00 00 00 04 00
Strings:
Server Platform Services (SPS) Firmware
.
.
.

- where:

03 00 00 00 06 00 67 02 04 00 = 0003 0000 0006 0267 0004 = 3.0.6.267.4
