Before You Begin
Identify the version of ILOM that is currently running on your system. See Determining Current Firmware Versions.
Download the firmware image for your server from the server web site. See How to Download Firmware Updates.
Copy the firmware image to a local server using a supported protocol (TFTP, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS).
Obtain an ILOM user name and password that has admin (a) role account privileges. You must have admin (a) privileges to update the firmware on the system.
To verify that you have network connectivity to update the firmware, type show /SP/network.
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 automatically.
See Connecting to the ILOM for more info.

You can use TFTP, FTP, HTTP, or HTTPS.
A note about the firmware update process appears, followed by message prompts to load the image. The text of the note depends on your server platform.
The prompt to preserve the configuration appears.
Type y to save your existing ILOM configuration and to restore that configuration when the update process is completed.
Typing n at this prompt advances you to another platform-specific prompt.
A prompt to postpone the BIOS update appears.
Note - If you answer no (n) to the prompt, the system postpones the BIOS update until the next time the system reboots. If you answer yes (y) to the prompt, the system automatically updates the BIOS, if necessary, when updating the firmware.
The system loads the specified firmware file and then automatically reboots to complete the firmware update.
Note - If you did not preserve the ILOM configuration before the firmware update, you will need to perform the initial ILOM setup procedures to reconnect to ILOM.
