The network express modules (NEMs) provide server network connectivity options.
Before You Begin
Perform the following actions before upgrading your NEM firmware:
Download the firmware image for your server from 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. This action ensures that the NEMs are powered-on but the OS does not boot.
The Component Management page appears.
A screen asks for download details.
The Update Status display appears, providing details about the update progress. When the update indicates 100%, the firmware upload is complete.
When the update is finished, it displays the message Firmware Update Successful. Auto-closing windows in 2 seconds, then it closes the display.
