Re: iLO2 v2.12 released to the FTP

I am upgrading ILO firmware on one of my proliant DL 380 G6 servers and gone through some HP Forums and downloaded the Online ROM Flash Component for  64-bit windows, a .exe file.


Can you please guide on how to get the .bin file out of that so that i can mount it and upgrade the firmware please.
