Insight Control for vCenter firmware upgrade error

 

Insight Control for vCenter firmware upgrade error

Trying to install firmware using the "smart component update" tool in Insight Control for vCenter gives the following error:

 

Error

The job did not complete normallyand an error has occured, Job has completed

Failed to find flash.so in SmartComponent

 

This error appears after trying to update any firmware package.

 

ESXiHost: DL585 G7

Host OS: ESXi 5.0 patch level 623860

HP ESXi 5.0 Bundle 1.1-37

Insight Control for vCenter 6.3 (released Aug 2011)

vCenter 5.0 patch level 455964

 

Has anyone got this feature working?

 

Thanks

Re: Insight Control for vCenter firmware upgrade error

hi,

 

the point is, that this method of firmeware update for ESXi is not ready yet, even if the feature (or the menu / GUI for this firmware feature) is already there...

We had the same problem and an HP specialist in Houston told us that this will come with a future release (in a few months)...

so we have to wait for firmware update on ESXi Hosts through Insight Control for vCenter :-(

 

Regards,

Ville

Thanks for the reply Ville,

 

Any idea if this will only work on gen8 servers w/ the newest iLO or will it be compatible w/ G7 servers and iLO3?

Re: Insight Control for vCenter firmware upgrade error

I think it will also work on G7 servers because in no User Manual or other document is written anything regarding iLO / Server Generation limitations...
