Update firmware on dl360 gen9 from esxi host software.

I have a remote server with slow internet access.  I need to update the P440AR Smart Array.  Booting the ISO for SPP from the ILO times out and never boots.  I tried to use the install method from the firmware install notes by loading the zip file to the ESXi host.

But I get the error message when executing the file.

Unable to create scratch directory

!!!Error detected ... preserving working files for analysis

Is there a more detailed installation instruction?  

I am not the administrator of the system, just tasked with finding a solution.

Regards,

Bob

Re: Update firmware on dl360 gen9 from esxi host software.

Hi Robert, 

Follow the steps below to make it happen – 

  • enable SSH on your ESXi host (configuration tab, Security Profile, Properties)
  • copy the CPxxxxxx.scexe file to /tmp on your ESXi Host using eg. WinSCP
  • logon as root at your ESXi host and change to /tmp
  • check with “ls” if your CP file is there
  • change file permission to executable: “chmod +x CPxxxxxx.scexe”
  • now run the file: “./CPxxxxxx.scexe” 

Once complete reboot the ESXi host – done!

Regards,

Vijay
