Before You Begin

Note - The firmware update process takes about six minutes to complete. During this time, do not perform other ILOM tasks. When the firmware update is complete, the system reboots.

  1. Log in to the ILOM web interface.

    See How to Connect to the ILOM Web Interface.

  2. Select Maintenance > Firmware Upgrade.

    The Firmware Upgrade screen appears.

  3. In the Firmware Upgrade screen, click Enter Upgrade Mode.

    An Upgrade Verification dialog box appears, indicating that other users who are logged in will lose their session when the update process is completed.

  4. In the Upgrade verification dialog box, click OK to continue.

    You are prompted to select an image file to upload.

    image:Upgrade verification dialog box.
  5. Perform the following actions:
    1. Specify the image location by performing one of the following:
      • Click Browse to select the location of the firmware image you want to install.
      • If supported on your system, click Specify URL. Then type the URL for the firmware image in the text box.
    2. Click the Upload button to upload and validate the file.

      Wait for the file to upload and validate.

      The Firmware Verification screen appears.

  6. In the Firmware Verification screen, enable any of the following options:
    • Preserve Configuration. Enable this option if you want to save your existing configuration in ILOM and restore that existing configuration after the update process is completed.
    • Delay BIOS upgrade until next server power off. Enable this option if you want to postpone the BIOS upgrade until the next time the system reboots.
  7. Click Start Upgrade to start the upgrade process, or click Exit to cancel the process.

    When you click Start Upgrade, the upload process starts and a prompt to continue the process appears.

    Note - If you did not preserve the ILOM configuration before the firmware update, you need to perform the initial ILOM setup procedures to reconnect to ILOM.

  8. At the prompt, click OK to continue.

    The Update Status screen appears, providing details about the update progress. When the update indicates 100%, the firmware upload is complete. When the upload is completed, the system automatically reboots.

    Note - The ILOM web interface might not refresh properly after the update is completed. If the ILOM web interface is missing information or displays an error message, you might be viewing a cached version of the screen from the version previous to the update. Clear your browser cache and refresh your browser before continuing.

  9. Log in to the SP ILOM web interface.
  10. Select System Information > Versions to verify that the firmware version on the SP corresponds to the firmware image you installed.
