Re: How to check current firmware installed on sever machine

Hi Sachin,

Easiest way is to download the latest Firmware Maintenance CD for that model from here...

Run the CD in your OS, or boot the server from it.
This will run the Smart Update Util which scans your hardware and gives you a list of FW versions already installed and what versions are on the CD that you can upgrade to.

Really easy.

Thanks
Mark...

Re: How to check current firmware installed on sever machine

Are you talking about only the BIOS of the server?

If so, then download this...

Run that in Windows and reboot, this will update your BIOS to the latest for that model server.

The firmware CD is the complete package and the easiest way, but if you want a specific hardware firmware update, download it from :

Try the online flash rom version, it will show you the current version and tell you if need to upgrade.
