Before You Begin
Perform the following actions before upgrading your NEM firmware:
Download the firmware image for your server. For details, see http://my.oracle.support.
Copy the firmware image to the system on which the web browser is running, using a supported protocol (TFTP, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS).
Obtain an Oracle ILOM user name and password that has Administrator role account privileges. You must have Administrator privileges to update the firmware on the system.
When POST messages appear, press F2 to enter the BIOS setup utility.
Note - You do not need to configure anything in the BIOS setup utility. It is used in this procedure to ensure that the NEMs are powered-on but the OS does not boot.
The fru_extra_1 property field identifies the firmware version presently installed on the NEM.
