Note - In the instructions that follow, example dialog screen shots have been provided as a reference. Information displayed in each dialog may differ depending on your server model.
If your server supports inband upgrades (using the server's internal circuitry and not the network), the task list will show two options for System BIOS and ILOM upgrades: inband and network.
Note - An inband upgrade can take up to 40 minutes to complete and is only recommended if your server's service processor is not connected, or not reachable over the network.
Note - The server must be able to access its management port over the network.
Note - If you performed an SIA Update during the current SIA session (described in How to Start SIA and Prepare for Tasks Using Local or Remote Media), the latest BIOS and ILOM versions for your server will have been obtained from the Oracle software download site.
Follow the on-screen instructions until the upgrade has completed. Upgraded code will not be used by the system until after a reboot.
