HP NC-Series Broadcom Online Firmware Upgrade Utility

Hi,

Just doing some period maintenance of servers.

I have reviewed this web site:
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/revision/9279.html

Which seems incomplete with regards to exactly what the referenced update contains.

I ran it on a Windows server and it did state there was an applicable update. It ran fine.

This update only appears available as a Windows binary. If I have an identical Linux server, and therefore one with NICs likely to take this update, how can I apply it? I would normally know for sure, however this update also doesn't appear to be seen by the version control manager.

I have a similar issue even though we are deploying Windows Server 2003. Typically, we update the firmware before installing the OS, but as you stated, this firmware update is only available from within Windows.

Perhaps the single firmware update could be executed from within WinPE or BartPE on your Linux servers?
